GPS (Global Positioning System) enables the positioning of any point in a global framework through observations to a network of orbiting satellites. Originally designed for military use by the U.S., the information from these satellites was eventually made publicly available. At first the prime purpose was in navigation, but the surveying community soon realised that this technology could also be used for purposes of measurement. With the more recent introduction of GLONASS (short for Global Navigation Satellite System), the Russian satellite-based navigation system works alongside GPS to provide position information. With an additional 24 satellites to utilise GLONASS compatible receivers can acquire satellites up to 20% faster than devices that rely on GPS alone. Galileo, the European global satellite-based navigation system, is the third and latest satellite network to go live. Until now, global navigation satellite system (GNSS) users around the world have had to depend on American GPS or Russian GLONASS. Galileo will give users a new and reliable alternative, run by civil, not military authorities.
