GPS receivers nowadays provide a well established system for tracking of spacecraft in low-Earth orbit (LEO). In addition, GPS receivers serve as instruments for geodetic and atmospheric research on an ever growing number of science missions. The paper provides an overview of existing GPS receivers for LEO satellites, covering both fully space qualified as well as commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) systems. The needs of pure navigation receivers and advanced science instruments are independently discussed and directions for future systems are identified. Potential benefits of the new Galileo constellation are addressed and recommendations for future receiver developments are given.
