Caption: Satellite navigation. View of a receiver used with the Global Navigation Satellite System, GLONASS. This system is similar to the American Global Positioning System (GPS) network. The unit receives time signals form various satellites in the GLONASS network and uses these to calculate the distance to each satellite at that instant. The computer then triangulates from known satellite positions to pin down exactly where it is. This unit is being used in an aircraft travelling to an Antarctic research station, a region in which magnetic compass signals are notoriously unreliable.
