Boeing Declines to Bid on GPS III

One, and perhaps two, of the three firms most likely to compete for a contract to build the next tranche of GPS III satellites will no longer pursue the deal.

Boeing declined to bid on the contract to build the 22 new spacecraft, a multi-year effort estimated to be worth as much at $10 billion.

"Boeing did not submit a proposal in response to the RFP (request for proposals)," said a company spokesman, "as the RFP emphasized mature production to current GPS requirements and did not value lower cost, payload performance or flexibility."

Ligado Decision May Be At Hand

The federal government is rumored to be nearing a decision about Ligado Networks’ request to repurpose its satellite frequencies to also support a ground-based telecom network. Those frequencies neighbor the band used by GPS. Testing done both several years ago and more recently has shown such a system could seriously interfere with GPS receivers.

Technical Panel: Existing Test Results Are Enough to Decide Ligado Interference Question

An independent technical review ordered by the federal government's top GPS policy body found that there is sufficient data to assess the risk of using frequencies near the GPS band for a ground-based communications network. Existing test results can also be used to set power limits for other similarly located projects, said a panel of technical specialists. Two tests sponsored by Ligado Networks, however, did not meet minimum criteria for inclusion, the panel said.

Lawsuit Delay Hints at Shift in GPS Spectrum Fight

A $2 billion lawsuit with implications for the ongoing spectrum fight between the GPS community and would-be terrestrial telecom provider Ligado Networks has been stayed — set aside through mutual agreement for nine months — according to court documents.

The lawsuit filed by Harbinger Capital, a firm founded by hedge fund manager Phil Falcone, alleges "massive fraud" by Apollo Global Management LLC and others when they sold the satellite company SkyTerra to Harbinger.
