Will GPS Work On The Moon?

The American company Masten Space Systems will develop a lunar navigation system based on surface radio beacons. The device in lunar orbit will drop beacons to the surface that will be adapted for a hard landing and will be able to provide positioning for other satellites and spacecraft in lunar orbit, without the use of terrestrial navigation systems.
