AN OVERVIEW OF GNSS APPLICATIONS
Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) is basically a system of satellites providing autonomous geo
spatial positioning with global coverage. There are mainly four GNSS systems currently in operation. They
are the United States' Global Positioning System (GPS), Russian Federation's Global Orbiting Navigation
Satellite System (GLONASS), Chinese BeiDou Navigation Satellite System (BDS) and European Galileo.
The possible uses of GNSS are enormous and spanning many domains. In this paper effort has been taken
to highlight some recent and practical applications of this technology, special focus on military and
commercial applications in various fields.
