GPS Training | Global Positioning System Training Course Description
This GPS Training | Global Positioning System Training course introduces the fundamentals of Global Positioning System (GPS) systems. It addresses all aspects of the GPS, emphasizes GPS architecture and applications, examines the GPS signal structure, modulation, access technologies and covers the key types of measurement being utilized in the field today.
● If you are familiar with some aspects of this course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
● We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the course around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
● If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the course in manner understandable to lay audiences.
Duration: 2-3 days
