Washington View: 5G, PNT, and Air Safety

A  deadlock over 5G implementation, and the potential hazards the technology would create for air traffic safety, has been at least temporarily resolved. Not all questions have been answered nor problems eliminated, however. And while radio altimeters do not use GPS or GNSS technology, they are definitely PNT devices, and this situation could create precedents for ongoing and future conflicts between telecom and PNT use of the finite radio spectrum.

U.S. military efforts to field jam-resistant GPS weaponry not only run behind schedule, they continue to fall back, according to the annual report from the Department of Defense (DoD) Director, Operational Test and Evaluation (DOT&E) Nickolas Guertin. Because “the lack of M-code capable receivers limits the M-code use by U.S. and allied warfighters,” branches of the Armed Forces are now sourcing directly from commercial suppliers.
