  • Title: AEM | Newsroom - News Releases -- AEM calls on Congress and the Administration to stop plans for disruption of GPS signals
    Descriptive info: 6/24/2011.. AEM calls on Congress and the Administration to stop plans for disruption of GPS signals.. Please find below a statement from AEM President Dennis Slater on America's Global Positioning System (GPS) network; AEM calls attention to the problems surrounding one company's plan to build broadcasting stations with signals that could render commercial and private GPS devices useless - including those used in agriculture and construction applications.. Along with the statement, you can find a recent news release from the Coalition to Save our GPS.. here.. ; you can see the results of the whole study.. We have also.. attached a letter.. from the Transportation Construction Coalition (TCC) to Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood.. AEM is a founding member of the GPS coalition and a member of TCC.. Rich Jefferson, AEM.. AEM is a founding member of the Coalition to Save Our GPS, as well as a member of the Transportation Construction Coalition (TCC).. Today AEM calls on Congress, Transportation Secretary LaHood, and the Federal Communications Commission to stop the threat in the U.. to Global Positioning Systems (GPS) posed by LightSquared, the company planning to deploy a nationwide broadband internet infrastructure of 40,000 ground stations.. Not only would the 40,000 ground stations very likely render commercial and private GPS signals unreliable and in some cases useless, but implementing LightSquared's plan would add unnecessary burdens to the U.. economy.. A study just released  ...   transmitters.. The harm to highly-productive precision agricultural practices is clear.. Farmer business plans depend on GPS information such as yield data, harvest weights, moisture data, and other precision agriculture data.. Interference with GPS signals up to 22 miles away would devastate productivity and impede U.. agriculture ability to help meet the compounding worldwide demand for food.. In construction equipment manufacturing we are still recovering from the severe downturn of 2008-2009 and additional trouble for our industry is at best unwelcome.. In a letter to Secretary LaHood, the TCC coalition explains that Increasingly, the technology is used to map and survey construction sites including the location of buried and overhead utilities, facilitate precision grading and enhance material application.. It is also used to prevent theft of construction equipment, and provide real-time monitoring for equipment maintenance.. This GPS technology helps improve worker safety, reduces project delays, reduces fuel consumption and produces a more efficient worksite.. Any interference with these signals would be extremely disruptive to the many benefits GPS has brought to construction sites.. The TCC letter also makes it clear that We do not object to the goals of increasing wireless data capacity and competition but the available test data has shown overwhelming interference, and LightSquared should not be allowed to launch in the spectrum adjacent to GPS and jeopardize construction operations.. We respectfully ask Congress and the Administration to stop the LightSquared plan..
