Abstract

Differential Global Navigation Satellite System (DGNSS) radio beacon is a system designed to aid safety in marine navigation. In comparison to a terrestrial navigation or any other directionfinding system, DGNSS radio beacon systems used Global Positioning System (GPS) satellite (some used Global Navigation Satellite System (GLONASS)) to position a vessel at sea. By using real time Differential GPS (DGPS) method, users can get better result rather than with a single receiver. To receive corrections from a DGNSS radio beacon, users are required to encompass a GPS receiver that is capable to track the signal transmitted by the system.
