GAO Faults DHS, DoT for GPS Interference/Backup Effort

Federal efforts to protect positioning, navigation and timing (PNT) signals came under sharp criticism during the December meeting of the National Space-Based Positioning, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) Advisory Board, with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) getting a bureaucratic ear boxing for having done little so far to specifically protect GPS.

40th Anniversary of Key DoD Decision on GPS

Brad Parkinson, the first director of the NAVSTAR GPS Joint Program Office, once said that his work with the Global Positioning System had led him to validate an interpretation of “prime law” suggested by a colleague: one thing leads to another

Forty years ago today, that principle culminated in a key decision by the Department of Defense to proceed with what became the GPS program.

GPS-Aided Crowdshipping: TwedEx and Deliv

Crowdsourcing has gained some attention in the GNSS community as a means for detecting and mitigating RF interference and signal spoofing.

In the past year, researchers and commercial ventures have developed ways to take advantage of the GNSS-derived knowledge of real-time location of participants to create ad hoc networks of couriers.

GNSS Hotspots

Silver Spring, Maryland USA
√ The USA will stop printing nautical charts next April, the end of a 150 year tradition. Why? “Declining demand, electronic and digital charts and federal budget realities,” said NOAA’s Office of Coast Survey. They will maintain and update PDFs of more than a thousand coastal charts and refer those who admire traditional lithography to private printers who can do the job.
