Each satellite broadcasts a digital message that contains two types of
information. One type is ephemeris data, which includes the assigned serial
number of the satellite; the status of the satellite (healthy or faulty); the current
date and time. The second type is almanac data and includes precise orbital
position of every satellite in the system.
At the initialize stage, di-GPS Basic needs all these data for the position fixed.
It usually takes a minute to few minutes to receive all data. An open sky
outdoor environment will enable faster acquisition process. It will take a
longer time at a weak signal environment. Once di-GPS Basic locked to the
satellites, it will take a few seconds for reacquisition even at weak signal
environment.
