Scintillation occurs more often______________.in the mid-latitudes (40-60 degrees latitude (North or South))Global positioning system (GPS) is the fundamental system that allows all U.S. forces to establish a ______________, whereall forces are geographically referenced correctly and precisely synchronized operations are possible.Common gridSignificant advantages offered by global positioning system (GPS) to operational forces are ______________.accuracy, accessibility, and coverageGlobal positioning system (GPS) ______________.plays a key role in almost all military missionsBecause of ______________ of satellites in the global positioning system (GPS) constellation, a single satellite failure______________ cause significant degradation of the system.the number and orbit location / will notVirtually all DOD ______________ are equipped with a global positioning system (GPS) receiver.All answers Space-based position, velocity, time, and navigation systems support strategic, operational, and tactical missions by providinghighly accurate:All of the answers are correct.Benefits to naval forces from global positioning system GPS include:All answersThe Air Force space squadrons controlling the orbit of global positioning system (GPS) satellites during combat operationsduring Operation IRAQI FREEDOM were able to improve the navigation accuracy to approximately ______________ meterson a planned basis.2.2Select True or False: The default navigation grid used by global positioning system (GPS) is the World Geodetic System 1984(WGS-84).TrueThe global positioning system (GPS) navigational solution depends on having a number of satellites in view from any positionon Earth. Based upon this requirement, many satellites have been placed in orbit. Currently, there are approximately______________ GPS satellites in orbit.28Data and Information:82
