Answer to How Does GPS Factor into the Origin of the Internet Question
21 July 2019 | by dacklamSee all my reviews

It is mainly tied to the CDMA Standard and precise timing provided by the atomic clocks on the satellites. Also, you can navigate on less than 4 satellites but with degraded performance. Ideally you want four satellites in the nav solution with one high above and the other three lower to the horizon and equally spread apart. Geometric dilation of precision (GDOP) was a problem in the early development days when we had a limited constellation.
