Receiver Autonomous Integrity Monitoring is a technology developed to assess the integrity of GPS signals in GPS receiver systems.

RAIM is used to determine whether or not the position calculated by a GPS system is correct. It requires one additional satellite in addition to those required to calculate the position in order to cross-check the calculations.
