GPS and International Competitors Training


GPS and International Competitors Training Course Description

An astonishing total of 128 radio navigation satellites will soon be in orbiting along the space frontier. They will be owned and operated by six different sovereign nations hoping to capitalize on the financial success of the GPS constellation. This four-day short GPS and International Competitors Training describes in detail how these various international navigation systems work and reviews the many practical benefits they are providing to civilian and militar users scattered around the globe. Logsdon will explain how each radionavigation system works and how you can use it in practical situations.
