These signals are GPS III (part of constellation satellites) and now becoming a constant and intimate presence in our daily life. GPS III an engineering marvel engineered using blocks based development. This Block based development makes GPS III Upgradable and help us back on earth to make this system much better according to the requirements.

GPS is becoming a vital part of every sector of Pakistan and entire world, with much of its jobs done in behind the scenes, and puts a greater impeact of every body's life.GPS system helps us where we are now and where we are going, it can easily get us out from deep jungle of Amazon or from the desert of sahara in Africa.

Who owns GPS & How many of them are? Well, GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite Systems), GPS is a primier service which includes the European Union's Galileo, Russia's Glonass and the third one is Chinese BeiDou. The three players are working hard to make the GPS more robust to help Uber drivers, pilots, bankers, geologists, farmers doing precision agriculture, and users of drones and self-driving cars but also for the sector that got the whole GPS ball rolling in the first place: the US military. Pakistan initialy was using European Union's Galileo GPS for its country operations including defense and economical operations, but now Pakistan and entire world is moving to Chinese BeiDou GPS System to get things done more accurately.

The Entire System of GPS works? An interesting question asked by every non-technical persons. Arround 31 sattelites are part of of GPS Constellation, 24 of them  are considered the minimum for the core to work as it's supposed to do. Those 24 GPS sattelites are spead out arround the earth in six different oribal planes, so only 4 of them can point you always in iteration. These sattelites are constatnly sends signals back to earth, which makes you able to find your lost or theaft iPhone very easily. 

"The GPS satellites are actually just highly precise atomic clocks, hooked to a radio transmitting a time signal," says Dana Goward, president of the Resilient Navigation and Timing Foundation, a Washington, DC-based nonprofit.
