LightSquared and GPS – Chapter 2

Many of you probably remember the hubbub about LightSquare and their technology’s interference with GPS receivers. LightSquared initially launched in 2010 to build a nationwide wireless LTE network other companies could use to offer their own services to customers.

LightSquared entered bankruptcy protection in May 2012 after the FCC revoked its conditional license to operate due to concerns that LightSquared’s planned LTE-based network in the L-band would interfere with GPS receivers. The company is now emerging from bankruptcy and taking another run at it.
And it seems there has already been a first shot across the bow from LightSquared aimed the GPS Innovation Alliance.
