Global Navigation Satellite System

GNSS or Global Navigation Satellite System is the next step of progression on from a GPS system. A GPS system only provides the ability to determine position. A GNSS on the other hand, is a considerably more complex and useful system. As such, it includes:

Real time navigation information
Autonomous integrity checking
Accuracy sufficient for safe navigation

The easiest way to achieve these aims and create a GNSS is to use more satellites / stratellites in a GPS system, to increase signal density and thus accuracy, upgrade the timing of the internal clocks in receiver units to minimise errors, and use multiple redundant, and independent GPS systems, to check for integrity.
