It is pure Geometry... :-)

I did not say "simple", I said "pure" Geometry...

1. Satellites in orbits

2. Atomic Clocks

3. The Speed of Light

4. Tansmitters and Receivers

5. Computerized Mathematical (Geometric) Calculations involving Spheres and Straight Lines

6. Tracking Systems and Coordinates

7. Hardware and Software


Scientists and Engineers invented all this "stuff"...
