What is the definition of receiver?

GNSS receivers serve as the interface between users and Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), processing the Signals In Space (SIS) transmitted by satellites. While a generic GNSS receiver’s information is applicable to various applications, the majority of these applications depend on the receiver’s navigation solution, which includes the computed Position, Velocity, and Time (PVT).
