Description of this Book

The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a satellite-based navigation system that was originally designed for the US military. However, the number of civilian GPS users now exceeds the military users, and many commercial markets have emerged. This book identifies technical improvements that would enhance military, civilian, and commercial use of the GPS. Several technical improvements are recommended that could be made to enhance the overall system performance.
