Amidst ongoing tensions in the Strait of Hormuz, vessels have now been warned that GPS interference and other communications jamming may be encountered.

Two incidents so far have reported GPS jamming. The US believe Iran is the source using jamming hardware located on the island of Abu Musa, at the eastern entrance to the strait.

An American official said that Iran is attempting to trick vessels into straying into Iranian controlled waters where they would then be seized.

The US Maritime Administration (MARAD) has now issued a formal warning to shipping and advising masters to ensure their AIS (Automatic Identification System) is transmitting, submit detailed transit planes before entering the area as well as advise on what to do if Iranian forces attempt to board.

A well armed and concealed contingent on a few at risk tankers to sink the Iran gunboats and down any helicopters should do the trick.

Then let Iran try and deny involvement.

Explosive weapons onboard a tanker spells danger. And Iran is only able to seize them by claiming they are in Iranian waters, therefore legally seizable.

I find the description of the island of Abu Musa as at the eastern entrance to the Strait of Hormuz somewhat interesting, as on my map it seems to be north west of Sharjah. Maybe 'eastern' means entering on an easterly heading?

Surely jamming a GPS will just stop you knowing where you are rather than encourage you to go to the wrong place.

Do ships not have any other form of backup system to the GPS?

GPS will prove exactly where the ship was when boarded, jamming it allows Iran to say it was in their waters and who can prove otherwise?
