LightSquared Files GPS-Test Data
RESTON, Va. -- Today, LightSquared filed the first set of data from independent testing of precision GPS devices which were modified to coexist with the company's proposed nationwide 4G LTE network.
"As we anticipated, the data shows that properly filtered high-precision GPS devices do not suffer any loss of accuracy in the presence of LightSquared's signals," said LightSquared's executive vice president for regulatory affairs and public policy, Jeff Carlisle. "The government has not yet begun the next phase of testing, which will focus on high-precision devices, so this is an important indicator as those tests get underway."
The government's testing has already confirmed that more than 300 million GPS-enabled cell phones are compatible with LightSquared's signal. This, along with the independent test results available today, proves that engineering solutions are possible, and interference issues are avoidable.
