Frequently Asked Questions?
When people talk about “GPS,” they usually mean a GPS receiver. In fact, GPS stands for “Global Positioning System.” The system was originally developed for military use, but is now available to the general public to aid in everyday navigation. GPS data is acquired from a group of dedicated satellites orbiting the Earth. GPS receivers are actually tracking devices on the ground (or at sea). The devices can be located by calling up three or more of the closest satellites. Using a process called trilateration, the resulting information is then calculated by GPS software to identify the exact positions (latitude and longitude) of the receivers. Note that GPS satellites should not be confused with communication satellites used for wireless communications. They are two completely separate satellite networks. All of GPS LEADERS systems link to GPS satellites for location information.
A GPS antenna is tethered to a GPS LEADERS unit with a lead wire (typically 10-15 feet). The unit is then attached to the object to be tracked. Using the antenna, GPS LEADERS software then transmits the trilateral location data from the satellites to the unit through various wireless networks (including satellite wireless). The unit does some processing of events and speeds. Additionally, the GPS vehicle tracking unit has a wireless modem inside, similar to those found in cell phones. This modem is used to communicate with GPS LEADERS servers. The GPS data is sent directly from the vehicle’s unit to GPS LEADERS servers, where the information is processed, enabling customers to locate associated vehicles and assets in real-time. All data is protected, as well, available by secure login only to the respective customer.
