What is GPS?


The full name of GPS is Global Positioning System. It is a technology that makes it easy to find your location through the navigation unit of mobile phones, tablets, laptops, etc. It first started in 1970-1980, when US Air Force launched some GPS satellites, in relation to Army Navigation. But in 1983 when Russia attacked and destroyed a civilian aircraft when Kano was wrongly entering their region, the US government decided that the GPS would be available to the general public and the facility would be installed on all the aircraft for navigation. After just 12 years of hard work, in 1995, the GPS was introduced for the first time for the masses. But then this technology was not so accurate at that time. Then only the light of his position could be estimated. And in 2000, GPS was introduced to the public in 2000. After that, between 2005 and 2015, the US Air Force launched roughly 50 GPS satellites. That’s why today’s GPS technology is much stronger and able to determine your exact location.

How does GPS work?

There are many satellites installed on the earth and they are continuously chalking around the globe. Now each satellite has an attachment with an Atomic Clock. Now, what is this Atomic Clock? See an atomic clock is a clock that is capable of holding up to 1 billion years of time, it does not turn even in 1 second or 1 millisecond time. In this situation, these satellites continue to send signals on endless earth. And when a signal is sent, a time is also set with the satellite. And that’s the speed of without signal is 50 bytes per minute. That means it is a small and many weak signals. Now there is a GPS receiver, GPS transmitter but not installed on your mobile phone. Now this receiver tries to make more connections with satellite and to receive more signals. If your mobile phone or GPS unit succeeds in relation to 3 satellites, it is able to determine your exact location easily. When your phone receives the satellite signal, he knows when the signal was sent, the signal from which satellite came and where the location of the satellite was. Your phone will tell you the correct location by subtracting your location and time from these data. If 4 satellites are able to establish a GPS unit, then it will be able to measure the height of your position from the sea level. So, friends, this is why the explanation of how GPS works. But your phone’s GPS works even more. When you start the GPS of a car in a car, instead of changing it, GPS changes your live life. How does it now? See, the battery of your mobile phone has a lot of costs. Your phone repeatedly receives a new signal receipt. And sometimes there is a need to establish relationships with new satellites. As a result, your information on the phone re-frames it again and again. As a result, more battery may end up. The speed at which you can drive your phone will end soon. Kena will try to catch your phone as soon as possible with a new signal. US Air Force is working on this technology, to make it even more powerful, and to use GPS at very low battery cost. With this, the European Union is also working on a technology that works with GPS to help determine a faster position.

What is A-GPS?

A-GPS is a partner of GPS, which we call Assisted GPS. In this way, your mobile network uses some data to determine the exact location. When your phone searches for GPS signals, E-GPS sets your mobile network only to the ones that are around your location. And its signals try to reach the GPS receiver in a faster way faster.


In addition to GPS, there is another technology to identify locations, called GLONASS. This is a Russian technology. But this technology has not yet become so popular. You can see GPS on almost every smartphone, and there are some smartphones in which glucose can be found. If you have a glance technology on your phone, you will gain your happiness. If your phone is ready to get a GPS signal, you can get your exact location through the GLONASS. Maybe this technology will be more popular on the next day.
