Lightsquared Related Industry Announcements Summary, September 21, 2011 PDF Print E-mail

The Lightsquared issue has been going on for some time now and has received loads of attention, however, to many that aren't following closely, the whole topic may be a bit confusing.

The following are several announcements on the matter that were made today:

From Lightsquared

LightSquared(TM), a wholesale carrier building a nationwide wireless broadband network that will create consumer choice and industry innovation, has signed an agreement with Javad GNSS Inc. to develop a system that will eliminate related interference issues for high-precision GPS devices.

The Javad GNSS system can be adapted to work with high-precision GPS devices including those already in the agriculture, surveying, construction and defense industries. See Details

Via GPS World  Details from Javad GNSS

JAVAD GNSS is promoting its latest receiver, the TRIUMPH-LS (LightSquared). "TRIUMPH-LS can benefit from LightSquared communication channels for receiving RTK corrections," JAVAD GNSS said. "LightSquared communication channels are much faster and less expensive than conventional channels for RTK correction transmissions."

"I have said from the beginning that this interference issue will be resolved as soon as smart engineers like Javad Ashjaee put their minds to it. With this new system, Mr. Ashjaee makes another mark for himself as a cutting-edge pioneer in the precision GPS industry, a field he has helped shape for more than 30 years," said Sanjiv Ahuja, chairman and chief executive officer of LightSquared.  See Details

"LightSquared has, as usual, oversimplified and greatly overstated the significance of the claims of a single vendor to have ‘solved’ the interference issue.  There have been many vendor claims that have not proven out in rigorous tests and the demanding tests of marketplace acceptance. Moreover, this is not a one-size-fits-all situation and a few prototypes does not a solution make." See Details HERE

And so it seems The Debate Continues...
