Units relying on hand-held GPS receivers in areas of ______may have diminished GPS capabilities. dense vegetation or steep terrain Global positioning system (GPS) navigation signals are affected by ionospheric scintillation. 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 ______________, where all forces are geographically referenced correctly and precisely synchronized operations are possible. Common grid Significant advantages offered by global positioning system (GPS) to operational forces are ______________. accuracy, accessibility, and coverage Global positioning system (GPS) ______________. plays a key role in almost all military missions Because 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 not Virtually 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 providing highly accurate: All of the answers are correct. Benefits to naval forces from global positioning system GPS include: All answers The Air Force space squadrons controlling the orbit of global positioning system (GPS) satellites during combat operations during Operation IRAQI FREEDOM were able to improve the navigation accuracy to approximately ______________ meters on a planned basis. 2.2 Select True or False: The default navigation grid used by global positioning system (GPS) is the World Geodetic System 1984 (WGS-84). True The global positioning system (GPS) navigational solution depends on having a number of satellites in view from any position on Earth. Based upon this requirement, many satellites have been placed in orbit. Currently, there are approximately ______________ GPS satellites in orbit. 28 Data and Information: 82
