The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a satellite-based navigation system made up of over 24 satellites. GPS works in any weather conditions, anywhere in the world, 24 hours a day, with no subscription fees or setup charges. The U.S. Department of Defense (USDOD) originally put the satellites into orbit for military use, but they were made available for civilian use in the 1980s.

GPS Technology operates in the following frequency bands:

GPS L1 Band: 1575.42 MHz with a bandwidth of 15.345 MHz
GPS L2 Band: 1227.6 MHz with a bandwidth of 11 MHz
GPS L5 Band: 1176.45 MHz with a bandwidth of 12.5 MHz

GPS is the most widely used GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System). Other GNSS options include BeiDou (China), GLONASS (Russia) and Galileo (Europe).
