LightSquared Update - LS: GPS Tests Rigged - 1/19/12

In a conference call Wednesday,  LightSquared Executive Vice President Jeffrey Carlisle  alleged tests done to explore possible interference of the company's 4G network with GPS devices were rigged.

"The test parameters were chosen for failure," [Paid consultant Ed] Thomas said on the call. "They used an arbitrary figure to determine failure, which has no effect on performance. And they were allowed to select their own devices to test, some of which are not even sold commercially. The whole thing looks like a college student conducting an experiment for school who draws the curve in before making the measurements."
