LightSquared Update 3/17/11

The LightSquared GPS Working Group sent its first report to the FCC on March 15. The 34 member group detailed its testing plans to explore possible interference LightSquared's proposed communications system will have with GPS. The group will work closely with the FAA to be sure aircraft are aware where and when testing will occur to prevent any issues. The group will be testing seven different types of "devices" that use GPS: aviation, cellular, general location/navigation, high precision, timing, space-based receivers, and networks.
