    Ans. Global Positioning System (GPS) is a universal navigation system which consists of a constellation of about 24 satellites orbiting the earth and different tracking stations that are located across the globe.

The various signals from the GPS satellites are controlled and monitored by the tracking stations to provide the exact position of GPS receivers.
