Q:

The clock used in GPS will synchronize to __________

A) Greenwich B) ITC
C) UTC D) IS
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) UTC

Explanation: GPS uses an atomic clock which can help in recording the time of signal receiving and transferring. This needs to be in sync with the Co-ordinated Universal Time (UTC) which is maintained by the U.S. This helps the time recording process at the ground station too.

Q:

The accuracy speed of the GPS depends on ______________

A) Reflection of signal B) Signal blockage
C) Refraction of signal D) Position of satellite
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) Signal blockage

Explanation: They factors which can affect the accuracy speed of the signal include satellite geometry, signal blockage, atmospheric conditions and receiver design quality. All of these can create a huge impact on the speed of accuracy of the signal.

Q:

Which among the following can act as a cause wrong GPS tracking?

A) Refraction of signal B) Strength of signal
C) Atomic clock D) Reflection of satellite signals
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) Reflection of satellite signals

Explanation: It is known that sometimes GPS shows wrong placement of the location tracked. This is due to blockage of the satellite signal by buildings, reflection of satellite signals, jamming of the signals.

Q:

Which of the following will affect the accuracy of the GPS positioning?

A) Receiver station B) Strength of signal
C) Position of satellite D) Atomic clock
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) Receiver station

Explanation: The GPS accuracy depends upon the receiver station and the atmospheric conditions. In case of dull atmosphere, the information transmitted cannot reach the receiver end at a full length.

Q:

Which process can obtain more accuracy in position?

A) Carrier wave method B) Absolute positioning
C) Relative positioning D) Resection method
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) Relative positioning

Explanation: Relative positioning is capable of delivering the accuracy in its output as it takes observations with respect to one another. This process is beneficial for differentiating horizontal geodetic network.

Q:

Which of the following process is adopted in case of navigation system?

A) SPS B) Carrier wave
C) Relative positioning D) Pseudo ranging
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) Pseudo ranging

Explanation: Pseudo ranging can be adopted in case of navigation because it contains reference systems, which must be defined and maintained without direct access to the origin. Carrier wave fails in this case.

Q:

Which of the following indicates the correct set of classification for absolute positioning?

A) Carrier wave, pseudo range B) Pseudo range, SPS
C) SPS, carrier wave D) Absolute positioning, SPS
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) Carrier wave, pseudo range

Explanation: Absolute positioning involves a huge procedure which is sub divided into categories. Those include usage of the carrier wave and usage of pseudo range. Based on the type of work carried out, these are employed.

Q:

Precise positioning service is having an accuracy range of ____________

A) 1-5 m B) 5-9 m
C) 10-12 m D) 15-20 m
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 10-12 m

Explanation: Precise Positioning Service is equipped with a receiver which is able to track P-code. Its accuracy range is about 10-12 m which receives single frequency, with more precision in output.
