Protecting GPS satellites and signals is essential to U.S. national and economic security. While some have opined that the solution is more and better GPS, the most effective and least expensive solution is to make GPS a much less attractive target.
The space-based navigation capabilities of the United States and its allies remain vulnerable to spoofing, denial and attack
DoD's office of operational test and evaluation will assess "the survivability of the entire GPS enterprise in a contested space environment"
The U.S. Space Force awarded Boeing a $329.3 million contract to support operations of Global Positioning System satellites for the next 10 years.
Radio-frequency data collected by HawkEye 360 satellites can be used to locate GPS interference hotspots
Today, some of the more innovative uses of GPS are those that work together with other emerging technologies, thereby enabling smarter, more efficient functionality.
Space weapons meant to target U.S. satellites are a growing concern for the U.S. military. Especially worrisome are electronic jamming devices designed to interfere with GPS signals.
Companies investing billions of dollars in autonomous cars, delivery drones and urban air taxis are counting on precise and reliable location data being available when they need it.
