The purpose of this book is to accelerate the understanding of the Global Positioning System (GPS) and encourage new and innovative applications. Each chapter is authored by an individual or group of individuals who are recognized as world-class authorities in their area of GPS. The two volumes are intended to be complementary. Volume I concentrates on fundamentals and Volume II on applications. This volume, Volume II, concentrates on two aspects: augmentations to GPS and detailed descriptions of applications. It consists of Parts III to VI. Part III, Differential GPS and Integrity Monitoring, and Part IV, Integrated Navigation Systems, expand on GPS with explanations of supplements and augmentations to the system. The supplements enhance accuracy, availability, or integrity. Of special interest is differential GPS which has proven it can provide sub-meter (even centimeter) level accuracies in a dynamic environment. Part V, GPS Navigation Applications, and Part VI, Special Applications, are detailed descriptions of the major applications in current use.
