The main objective of terrestrial radio navigation is position fixing. Referring to a transmitter with known position and a rover to be determined, specific navigation systems give information on directions, angles, distances, pseudoranges, and combinations of these types of information. Considering these quantities as measurements, the term line of position (LOP) as explained in Sect. 3.2.2 becomes fundamental. Depending on the LOPs involved, various kinds of position fixing exist, see Figs. 3.7, 3.8, and 3.9 in Sect. 3.2.2.
