The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a space-based satellite navigation system that provides location and time information, anywhere on or near the Earth. The GPS provides critical capabilities to military, civil and commercial users around the world. This paper present a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) based Global Positioning System (GPS). In case of military and civilian applications of GPS, exchange of information is not that easy as it becomes perilous. There should be a qualified and well standard approach that can be used for the secure communication. A detailed architecture has been used to justify the essential need for the proposed architecture. Service oriented architecture provides communication with flexible, secure and independent platforms and standards making it a strongly viable option for secure communication when needed.
