What is GPS?

The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a satellite based navigation system that sends and receives radio signals. A GPS receiver acquires these signals and provides you with information. Using GPS technology, you can determine precise time for free.

The Global Positioning System (GPS) is actually a constellation of 27 Earth-orbiting satellites (24 in operation and three extras in case one fails). Each of these solar-powered satellites circle the globe at about 12,000 miles (19,300 km), making two complete rotations every day. The orbits are arranged so that at any time, anywhere on Earth, there are at least four satellites "visible" in the sky. A GPS receiver's job is to locate four or more of these satellites, figure out the distance to each, and use this information to deduce its own location.

In addition to serving as a highly accurate standalone time source, GPS receivers are used to synchronize distant clocks in communication networks. This is possible since all the GPS based satellite clocks are corrected to a common master clock. Therefore, the relative clock error is the same, regardless of which satellites are used. For timing applications requiring a “common” clock, GPS is the ideal solution.
