ATIS Offers Recommendations to Address GPS Vulnerabilities
Wednesday, December 05, 2018 | Comments

The Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS) made recommendations to the U.S. government to address GPS/Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) vulnerabilities and mitigate their impact. GPS and GNSS are vulnerable to jamming, spoofing and system problems.

The goal of the recommendations is to maintain the reliability of the timing systems that are a critical part of our communications networks.

"These recommendations represent the views of government, industry and GPS/GNSS users," said ATIS President and CEO Susan Miller. "Setting them into action will speed development of solutions to mitigate the risks to the systems that are the critical backbone for precision timing for so many industries."

The recommendations include establishing an assured positioning, navigation and timing program for U.S. civilian infrastructure; monitoring for GPS/GNSS disruptions, interference and impacts; and taking enforcement action against spectrum violations.

The GNSS Stationary Timing Receiver Resilience Workshop, sponsored by ATIS and the Resilient Navigation and Timing Foundation, gathered the recommendations. The event brought together timing and synchronization experts to explore the challenges of adopting more resilient GPS/GNSS receivers to enhance critical infrastructure and secure the systems from disruptions.
