GPS Constellation and Characteristics of GPS Constellation

A GPS receiver calculates its position by precisely timing the signals sent by GPS satellites. The receiver uses the messages it receives to determine the transit time of each message and computes the distance to each satellite. The GPS receiver with the help of the satellites determine: Time (t) Longitude(x) Latitude(y) Altitude (z)

Sources of Errors in GPS and their Correction

Slight inaccuracies in time keeping by the satellites can cause errors in calculating positions. Satellites drift slightly from their predicted orbits which contributes to errors. Let the GPS receiver receive signals from 4 satellites, then there are two cases: The satellites are at 90° to each other w.r.t the GPS receiver. For demonstration purpose we will take 2 satellites
