I. Read the text. Then read the titles. Which of the following titles is the best?
a. Space Satellites.
b. Global Positioning System.
c. Segments of Global Positioning System.
d. Radio-Navigation Systems.
Global Positioning System (GPS) is a space-based radio-navigation system, consisting of 24 satellites and ground support. GPS provides users with accurate information about their position and velocity, as well as the time, anywhere in the world and in all weather conditions.
GPS, formally known as the Navstar Global Positioning System, was initiated in 1973.1________. GPS satellites carry atomic clocks that provide extremely accurate time. The time information is placed in the codes broadcast by the satellite so that a receiver can continuously determine the time the signal was broadcast. The signal contains data that a receiver uses to compute the locations of the satellites and to make other adjustments needed for accurate positioning. The receiver uses the time difference between the time of signal reception and the broadcast time to compute the distance, or range, from the receiver to the satellite. The receiver must account for propagation delays, or decreases in the signal´s speed caused by the ionosphere and the troposphere. With information about the ranges to three satellites and the location of the satellite when the signal was sent, the receiver can compute its own three-dimensional position.

Дополнительная информация

An atomic clock synchronized to GPS is required in order to compute ranges from these three signals. However, by taking a measurement from a fourth satellite, the receiver avoids the need for an atomic clock. 2_______.GPS comprises three segments: the space, control, and user segments. The space segment includes the satellites and the Delta rockets. GPS satellites fly in circular orbits at an altitude of 20,100 km (12,500 mi) and with a period of 12 hours. The orbits are tilted to the earth´s equator by 55 degrees to ensure coverage of polar regions.3________. Each satellite contains four atomic clocks.
The control segment includes the master control station in Colorado, and monitor stations in the Atlantic, Indian and South Pacific Oceans. These stations monitor the GPS satellites. The control segment uses measurements collected by the monitor stations to predict the behavior of each satellite´s orbit and clock. The prediction data is uplinked, or transmitted, to the satellites for transmission to the users. 4________.
The user segment includes the equipment of the military personnel and civilians who receive GPS signals. With more than 500,000 GPS receivers, the civilian community has its own large and diverse user segment. Surveyors use GPS to save time over standard survey methods.5_______. GPS tracking systems are used to route and monitor delivery vans and emergency vehicles. In a method called precision farming, GPS is used to monitor and control the application of agricultural fertilizer and pesticides. GPS is available as an in-car navigation aid and is used by hikers and hunters. It is also used on the Space Shuttle. Because the GPS user does not need to communicate with the satellite, GPS can serve an unlimited number of users.

II. Read the text again. Choose the best sentence from the list below to complete each gap.
1. We know that the atom is mostly empty space with a minute central nucleus some tens of thousands of times smaller than the atom.
2. Powered by solar cells, the satellites continuously orient themselves to point their solar panels toward the sun and their antennae toward the earth.
3. GPC is used by aircraft and skips for en route navigation and for airport or harbor approaches.
4. GPC determines location by computing the difference between the time that a signal is sent and the time it is received.
5. That makes it possible to send signals long distances, and in the XX century the world was united without wires.
6. Thus, the receiver uses four satellites to compute latitude, longitude, altitude, and time.
7. The control segment also ensures that the GPC satellite orbits and clocks remain within acceptable limits.
