GPS is an enabler of our fast-moving highly mobile world. Yet, it has vulnerabilities that require detecting and mitigating interference:
- GPS is weak because signals come from 20,000 km above the Earth.
- GPS is easily disrupted by interference from benign sources like terrestrial-based transmitters and atmospheric or astronomic events.
- GPS is susceptible to intentional spoofing and jamming.
We have been working aggressively to integrate resilient positioning, navigation and timing (PNT) technologies into Spectracom products, to make them more reliable, secure, and fault-tolerant.
