“Sat Nav & just how does GPS Work?” by Roger D Cooper M.Phil FRGS, MRIN.
The quest for safe & efficient navigation has been mankind’s aim ever since humans began to roam the planet. Many and varied methods of position fixing to enable navigating our way around have evolved.
None more intriguing than using artificial satellites instead of earthly and celestial objects together with the paraphernalia necessary to derive ones position on the ground.
A brief introduction into the highly technical world of Sat Nav and its development is presented.
These will be held as hybrid meetings at the NLO and also via Zoom for those not wishing to attend in person.
