Global Positioning Systems (GPS)
The Global Positioning System is a satellite-based navigational system that provides dependable time and location information of a receiver. Maintained by the U.S. government, it is originally intended for military applications and later made freely accessible for civilian use.
Which GPS systems are used in Israel?
There are no "local" differences in GPS receivers (unlike TV receivers, for example, with NTSC or PAL). The GPS system consist of about 2 dozen satellites that are positioned around the globe. Any GPS receiver will work in any given location, as long as the signal is accessible. Only mountain terrain - with deep valleys or certain downtown areas with high-rise buildings - may block out the signal in a few locations. ...

How many satellites make up the US Global navigation satellite system 24 or 27 or other?
24 active, but there are spares on standby.
What car is being advertised in the commercial that has the older man in the back seat giving directions instead of a navigation system?
Im not sure of the car but the advert is the tomtom advert. so search tomtom advert into youtube and find out. ...
What are advantages of global positioning systems?
Advantages of GPS Depending on what you are using it for, and the rating of your system it could be invaluable. I have a hand held and lap-top connected GPS. The advantages of having either is determining your exact position. While traveling through Albany, GA, I became lost. Looking for a place to pull over and ask directions (late at night) very few places were open. Liquor stores--OUT, bars--OUT, I needed a place that would be knowledgable and safe. I saw a Dominoes delivery...
How many GPS satellites are there and when were they put in orbit?
GPS Satellites There are 30 GPS satellites -- called NAVSTARs -- in place and the oldest one was launched in 1989. These are just the ones in operation now -- another 22 have been launched since the program started in 1978, but are no longer working. The design of the satellites has remained essentially the same over the years; the differences have just been in their operations. The first 11 satellites, known as Group I and designed by Rockwell International, were launched into orbit...
How do you sync your iPod to a different computer?
An iPod can only be synced to one iTunes Library at a time (each computer has a different library). This means that, if you want to change the computer you manage your iPod with, it will need to be re-synced to the computer in question. To do this, connect your iPod to the computer you'd rather manage your iPod on. A popup from iTunes will say something along the lines of "This iPod is currently synced to a different Library. Would you like...

How do you build a low-cost GPS tracking device at home?
Low Cost Home Built GPS Device? I would not even attempt to do this and I am an electronics design engineer. It would involve a satellite receiver and transmitter and lots of custom chips, and there probably is no way to build a low-cost unit compared to commercial units. In other words you would be better off buying a commercial unit. That said, it is possible there is a kit for a GPS tracking device which is less than a commercially built unit. Any such...
How is science a curse?
Science has made our world so dirty ,the industrialists are throwing their waste off in rivers, lakes and other water bodies.Science has made our lives so easier that we are not taking care of anything, anyone etc. We are putting all around atom and hydrogen bombs, are we all realizing the real impact of that.Because of science only we have to suffer of global warming, melting of glaciers etc. ...
How do you replace a tomtom battery?
I have TomTom 910 in USA, (and I have one in the UK). Access to the battery is behind the front screen but the plug is under the circuit boards. 1) Remove 4 screws under ends of rubber strips on back. (All screws are Torx number 6) 2) Remove back cover. Front frame around screen comes off easier now. 3) Remove 2 screws in round top circuit board. Remove 4 screws from lower circuit board. These two boards may have a glue connection. Do...
Why gmsk is used for gsm?
GMSK for GSM GMSK is used in GSM because it provides good spectral efficiency. i think 8-psk modulation is also used..... for edge hardware. Well the reason GMSK is used for GSM.1. High spectral Efficiency2. Since Basic MSK uses Phase variations for modulation so better immune to noise.3.Use of non-linear amplifiers at receivers can be utilized since the information is stored in phase variations rather than amplitude, Non-linear amplifiers give better response and consume less power so low battery usage which is a important parameter...
What is GPS?
GPS stands for Global Positioning System and is a satellite-based radio navigation system. While common use of the term GPS began relatively recently, the system dates back to the 1960s when it was first developed and operated by the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD). In 1966, a Presidential Decision Directive was issued and later passed into law that transferred the "ownership" of the system to an Interagency GPS Executive Board (IGEB), with representatives from DOD, the U.S. Department of Transportation and other government agencies....
How does a periscope work?
Old trench periscopes worked by using two mirrors to bounce light from one place to another. A typical periscope uses two mirrors at 45 degree angles to the direction one desires to see. The light bounces from one to the other and then out to the persons eye. If there is an object in front of you, any nearby light source (i.e the sun, a lamp etc.) bounces straight rays of light onto the object and then into your eyes, enabling you...
