The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a navigation network consisting of 24 satellites in orbit around the Earth. This satellite system provides the accurate position of an individual in all weather conditions at all times around the world. Individuals can use GPS receivers to locate where they are, pinpoint where they want to go with any form of transportation.

The senior project embarks in a path to understand the workings of the GPS satellite system. To accomplish this task, the concepts learned in Electrical Engineering will be implemented. This report encompasses the design process and steps taken in prototyping a GPS receiver message record and replay system.
