‘Global Navigation Satellite System,’ or ‘GNSS’ is a generic term used for a constellation of satellites with worldwide coverage that function to send positioning and timing signals to receivers located on Earth. It is this technology that allows us to perform simple applications from determining location and finding addresses to more sensitive asset tracking and military operations.
