News: LightSquared’s Troubles Rumble On

pocketgpsworld.com
According to the American National Space-Based Position, Navigating and Timing Executive Committee (PNT-Excom), the planned introduction of 4G LTE broadband by LightSquared could cause disruption to GPS receivers.

In what has become an ongoing battle between the bodies, PNT-Excom claimed GPS receivers would encounter interference following the introduction of these services.

According to their report, even GPS systems found within flight navigation systems may be affected.

The declaration follows tests on the proposed broadband system which detected the interference.

Deputy Defense Secretary, Ashton Carter, and Deputy Transportation Secretary, John D. Porcari, wrote that, "Based upon this testing and analysis, there appear to be no practical solutions or mitigations that would permit the LightSquared broadband service, as proposed, to operate in the next few months or years without significantly interfering with GPS."
