Default GPS Industry Breathes Sigh of Relief

GPS Industry Breathes Sigh of Relief
http://gpsworld.com/gps-industry-bre...igh-of-relief/


The U.S. Federal Communications Commission convened a June 20
workshop on “GPS Protection and Receiver Performance” whose bite
turned out to be far less than its bark had led some in the GPS
industry to fear. The hastily assembled workshop — three weeks notice
was given — appeared at first notice to derive from the call for “GPS
receiver performance standards” that was one of the outcomes of the
LightSquared controversy of 2012. The FCC chief emphatically noted,
however, before anyone else could say anything, that the meeting was
“not about FCC-mandated receiver standards.” A nearly audible sigh
came from the collected dignitaries.

Perhaps the slotting of “GPS Protection” into first position within
the workshop’s title might have given some clue. The meeting did turn
out to be a less-than-alarming gathering of stakeholders, and in fact
a reiteration of the need to emphasize and safeguard critical
infrastructure and public safety — two key uses of GPS.

Two weeks prior to the workshop, Brad Parkinson declared to the
National Space-Based Positioning, Navigation, and Timing (PNT)
Advisory Board that “A number of manufacturers are quite panicked
over this because of the possibility of some superposition of, in
essence, how you design a receiver for GPS. This could vastly affect
the whole substance of what we are if carried to the point that
someone dictates how you design a receiver. I think that’s kind of
dangerous.”

But the meeting, in the end, took a positive, protective, and
conciliatory tone, even as the FCC continues beating the drum for
more frequencies for mobile broadband, citing the need “get more out
of the radio spectrum.”

You don't get more out of it by pouring more in,
