A worrying report by OEWatch, a newsletter published by The Foreign Military Studies Office (FMSO) at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, notes that Russia is buying up large quantities of GPS jamming devices which are being installed on cellphone masts in the country.

The report suggests this is part of preparation for a possible conflict and it presumes the deployment is being undertaken in an effort to thwart GPS guided munitions such as cruise missiles.

Russia has 250,000 cellphone towers and whilst it it relatively easy to jam GPS signals, it is not clear how they will deal with the side effects, any GPS jamming will affect their own use of GPS and deny them access to the service equally.

It sounds like they might be testing in Moscow, according to a story in phonearena

Does the RussianGLONASS system work on the same methodology as other systems? Could it be that they can use theirs even when others are blocked?

Hopefully that is "Great minds think alike Idea " rather than "fools seldom differ Stupid "
