The Global Positioning System or “GPS” – a U.S. space-based radionavigation system – provides reliable positioning, navigation and timing services that anyone with a GPS receiver can use, for free. Composed of satellites orbiting the planet, Earth-based control and monitoring stations and the GPS receivers owned by users, GPS most commonly is used when receivers pick up on broadcast signals from satellites in space, such as in auto navigation devices. Other common GPS activities include mobile phone use, aviation, banking and disaster relief efforts.
