Garmin Stresses Need to Protect GPS Receivers

Garmin International, Inc., is stressing the need to protect GPS receivers from interference. An ex parte filing yesterday in IB dockets 11-109 and 12-340 reporting on a meeting with Julie Knapp, chief of the FCC’s Office of Engineering and Technology, said “that Garmin remains committed to working with the Commission staff, other federal stakeholders, and interested third parties to protect critical GNSS applications from interference while potentially exploring ways that currently underutilized spectrum in adjacent bands can be made more productive.” A document handed out at the meeting emphasizes  the importance of accuracy, integrity, availability, and continuity for GPS systems.
