The purpose of the article is to consider the main problems of satellite navigation and remote sensing of the Earth's surface using the GPS system, which is caused by the resonant quantum properties of the radio wave propagation medium in the upper atmosphere. We carried out a critical analysis of the generally accepted ideas on the optical transparency of the E and D layers for the propagation of radio waves, which are used by specialists in processing the measurement results. As a result, we proposed a fundamentally new measurement scheme which targets the atmospheric layer 60...110 km above the Earth's surface being the source of incoherent radiation at a frequency of 1.4 GHz. Finally, we discussed the calibration problem associated with the current state of the atmosphere.
