SEOUL– North Korea used jamming equipment to block South Korean military communication devices last week, a report said Sunday, amid high tension over the joint drills between Seoul and Washington.
As Editor at WNU notes, this is troubling. Everything, I mean everything, our military does relies on uninterrupted access to GPS.
GPS is a “single point failure” for the military. And I know a lot of people in a lot of different areas in the military are worried about over-reliance on it. How effective North Korea’s jamming of GPS signals is, I don’t know. But we better have a countermeasure ready and able to overcome right now.
