Homeland Security no longer assessing GPS threats

by GPS4US 2013-11-07 16:12

Due to the sequester and an effort to cut costs, the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) says it
will no longer assess the risks of GPS disruptions to infrastructure systems.
In July, the GHS updated a November 2012 memo saying “detecting, locating and disabling sources of GPS
disruption remain a problem.”
GPS technology is critical to several aspects of America’s infrastructure. The Federal Aviation
Administration and mariners use it for navigation. The DHS’ responsibility is to assess threats such as
jamming and spoofing.
However, DHS officials say “that they have no plans to conduct another NRE on GPS because of resource
constraints.”
