Abstract : The purpose of this thesis is to investigate using Global Positioning System (GPS) technology, for the guidance of an unmanned air vehicle (UAV) seeking precise navigation. Being fully operationally deployed by now, GPS is the indispensable tool for every application that requires precise positioning. By applying the Differential Positioning Technique, GPS becomes accurate to the point that its position and velocity outputs can be used as inputs to aflight control computer of a UAV. The Archytas
