GPS and International Competitors Training
GPS and International Competitors Training Course Description
An astonishing total of 128 radio navigation satellites will soon be in orbiting along the space frontier. They will be owned and operated by six different sovereign nations hoping to capitalize on the financial success of the GPS constellation. This four-day short GPS and International Competitors Training describes in detail how these various international navigation systems work and reviews the many practical benefits they are providing to civilian and militar users scattered around the globe. Logsdon will explain how each radionavigation system works and how you can use it in practical situations.
With onsite Training, courses can be scheduled on a date that is convenient for you, and because they can be scheduled at your location, you don’t incur travel costs and students won’t be away from home. Onsite classes can also be tailored to meet your needs. You might shorten a 5-day class into a 3-day class, or combine portions of several related courses into a single course, or have the instructor vary the emphasis of topics depending on your staff’s and site’s requirements.
