1. A navigation system comprising:

  • a first processor for tracking GPS signals from a plurality of transmitters and providing data related to the position of an object, the first processor having a spread spectrum receiver for receiving signals modulated by-a spectrum spreading code having a fixed number of bits repeated during a fixed length time period being transmitted from the plurality of transmitters, the receiver comprising;

    first means for dividing the fixed length time period into a number of time segments evenly divisible into the twice the fixed number of bits;

    second means for applying each time segment to each of a number of channels, each of the channels being used for tracking one of the plurality of transmitters;

    third means for applying each of the time segments in each of the channels to a number of code phase delay tests to derive information related to the received signals; and

    fourth means responsive to the information for deriving the position-related data;

    a second processor responsive to the position-related data for determining a navigation solution; and

    a display unit responsive to the navigation solution for providing navigation information related to the object.
