GPS is a critical part of our everyday lives and underpins much of the infrastructure surrounding us. But the GPS satellite system is just one of a growing list of so-called global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) that can provide space-based positioning, navigation, and timing.
In this episode, we explore how GPS fits into the larger GNSS constellation and discuss the future of satellite navigation services.
