Abstract: The introduction of Global Positioning System (GPS) has been a major breakthrough especially in the field of navigation. Navigation is the process of directing the movement of a vehicle safely and efficiently from one place to another. The annual growth rate of air traffic in India is approximately 18% and it is greater than rest of the world, which is leading to air space congestion and bringing a great difficulty in controlling the air traffic. In order to control this increased air-traffic efficiently. Satellite based navigation system (e.g. GPS, GALILEO and GLONASS) have to be used in place of the existing ground based navigation systems such as NBD, VOR, DME, ILS etc., as the ground based navigation system offer limited accuracy due to multipath and angular nature of radiating beams. The GPS is a satellite based modern navigation system that provides accurate three dimensional (3D) position, velocity and timing information up to 10-6 sec anywhere on or above the earthand#8223;s surface. The GPS is a location system based on the constellation of 24 satellites, orbiting round the earth at altitudes of 20,200km. GPS system provides precise 3D navigation solution of the order of 30m and 45m horizontal and vertical accuracies respectively. The 3D position determination is based on the concept of trilateration. In this concept, the unknown 3D position (x-, y- and z- coordinates) of the receiver is computed by estimating the satellite positions in the space and measuring the distances to each satellite from the receiver. This distance is referred to as the pseudorange. The pseudorange is calculated by multiplying the radio signal velocity (3×108m/sec) with the signaland#8223;s travel time from the satellite to the receiver. The user receiver position can be determined by solving the navigation equations which are formed by measuring the pseudoranges from at least four satellites.
