Blog Editor’s Note: Jamming satnav services, like GPS, is illegal in many countries. Yet few nations have active programs to detect and arrest those violating such laws. In the United States, for example, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has the authority to enforce the applicable law. Unfortunately, just as GPS jamming and spoofing has become more frequent over the last ten years, the FCC has greatly reduced its ability to detect such violations and apprehend the perpetrators.
RNT Foundation supports a scheme in the United States where local law enforcement officers are equipped and empowered to enforce the law. GPS jamming and spoofing are often related to other violations of law, so why would we not do that?
