Lightsquared has just today responded to the company’s solution to the “GPS issue” in a PR announcement. According to the company, their solution will permit LightSquared to proceed with its business plan, protect the public’s stake in GPS and lay the foundation for the future co-existence of a variety of wireless broadband services and GPS. Regarding the tests… Early test results indicated that one of LightSquared’s 10MHz blocks of frequencies poses interference to many GPS receivers. Test results show this lower block of frequencies is largely free of interference issues with the exception of a limited number of high precision GPS receivers that are specifically designed to rely on LightSquared’s spectrum.
From the company… LightSquared believes that its next-generation, 4G LTE wholesale network can live harmoniously, side-by-side, with GPS users.
Recall also that Esri has recently announced that a special forum will take place at the Survey Summit to address the Lightsquared issue – See Surveyors to Discuss LightSquared Issue at Survey Summit-ACSM Annual Conference
