Satellite navigation has become the key technology of the 21st century and represents an attractive market of development. Nowadays, it is almost impossible to imagine our life without satellite navigation. The applications cover a wide range of possibilities like navigation applied to traffic, personal location services, location applied to accurate air traffic or agriculture applications.
