We review the state of the satellite navigation systems and standards. Problems of precision approaches realization by means of satellite navigation systems are described in detail. Prospects of application of the ground reference stations to ensure the precision approaches are shown. Perspective scheme-constructed solutions of the ground reference station structure are considered. A reasoned conclusion about the expediency and possibility to develop the competitive Ukrainian ground reference stations is given.
