Blog Editor’s Note: Great OpEd by Logan Scott. We agree completely with his assertion that the US just needs to do something.
And if whatever that is fails, well we have learned something and have a better idea what will work.
But as things are now, the US can be held hostage by any credible threat to GPS. For example, who is to say what impact Russia’s threat to GPS had on US policy regarding the war in Ukraine?
We need to stop admiring the problem and act.
Logan is an incredibly capable award winning expert who holds 46 patents (short CV below).
We highly recommend his piece to you.
