LightSquared Lets Loose Lowly Yowl of Government Bias, Collusion, and Conspiracy Theories

LightSquared Lets Loose Lowly Yowl of Government Bias, Collusion, and Conspiracy Theories

Professional Land Surveyor News

Professional Land Surveyor News

Today, LightSquared latest a press release, Government Committee’s Refusal to Continue Testing Highlights Systemic Pattern of Bias and Collusion, decries its perceived treatment by the Federal Government, particularly by the National Executive Committee (EXCOM) and Advisory Board for the Space-based Positioning, Navigation and Timing (PNT).

LightSquared, as stated at the top of its press release,  “is urging the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) to retake the lead on government testing for GPS filtering solutions.”

LightSquared’s reasoning for this latest request, is:

“The request follows a systematic disregard for fairness and transparency by the National Executive Committee (EXCOM) and Advisory Board for the Space-based Positioning, Navigation and Timing (PNT). The PNT EXCOM is a government panel established to “advise and coordinate federal departments and agencies on matters concerning the global positioning system (GPS) and related systems.” A panel of non-governmental officials known as the PNT Advisory Board provides guidance to the PNT EXCOM. Members of the PNT Advisory Board have deep ties with the same GPS manufacturers who have sold poorly designed equipment to America’s farmers, public safety officials, military and government agencies.”
