abstract
The GPS problem as presented here is the arrangement of satellites in orbit so that from any given point on the planet, at any time, there are as many satellites within range as possible. This ensures that accurate triangulation can be achieved by the GPS receiver. To attack this problem, planes of orbit are spread out to be mutually spaced out as far apart as possible, and then satellites are dispersed through these planes. The resulting satellite network is tested for integrity, so that the best possible solution can be found.
