  2. 2. Table of Contents<br />History<br />What is Satellite?<br />What is GPS?<br />The GPS Satellite System<br />Concept<br />Applications<br />Conclusion<br />
  3. 3. History...<br /><ul><li>The idea of GPS was first proposed in 1940.
  4. 4. The first GPS satellite was launched in 1978. A full constellation of 24 satellites was achieved in 1994.
  5. 5. civilian applications as a public good.
  6. 6. Maintained by US the developer of NAVSTARGPS(USA) and GLONASS.</li></ul>Image 1<br />
  7. 7. What is Satellite?<br /> A satellite is an object which has been placed into orbit by hu-man endeavour.<br />Image : 2<br />
  8. 8. What is GPS?GPS, which stands for Global Positioning System, is the only system today able to show you your exact position on the Earth anytime, in any weather, anywhere. Image 3<br />
  9. 9. What is GPS?<br />Ø GPS is the fully-functional satellite navigational system..<br />Ø     More than 2 dozen(24+5) of Satellites broadcast precise signal to receiver …<br />Ø     Receiver determine their location in any weather &anywhere on the earth…<br /> Image 4<br />
  10. 10. The GPS Satellite System.<br /><ul><li>    The 24 satellites plus 5 backup satellites that make up the GPS space segment are orbiting the earth about 12,000 miles above us.</li></li></ul><li>The GPS Satellite System.<br /><ul><li>GPS satellites are powered by solar energy. They have backup batteries onboard to keep them running in the event of a solar eclipse, when there's no solar power.
  11. 11.    They are constantly moving, making two complete orbits in less than 24 hours </li></li></ul><li>Concept<br />Triangulation<br />Geometric Principle: <br />You can find one location if you know its distance from other, already-known locations.<br />Image 5.<br />
