When satellite positioning is mentioned the assumption is that reference is being made to the American Navigation System with Timing and Ranging, Global Positioning System (NAVSTAR GPS). In fact, there are other similar satellite positioning systems that are under development, for example, the Russian Global Navigation Satellite System (GLONASS). The GLONASS satellites, however, are already available for positioning during the development process. The operation of these satellite positioning systems is very similar, therefore, knowing the concept of one system would lead to an understanding of the others.
