LightSquared Calls for GPS Receiver Reliability Standards

LightSquared has filed a petition asking the FCC to develop receiver reliability standards for unlicensed GPS devices to ensure they perform reliably and take into account licensed users in nearby bands. LightSquared is especially focused on commercial GPS receivers designed to receive signals in the 1559-1610 MHz band, company.

In December, LightSquared asked the agency to confirm the company's right to use its licensed spectrum and confirm that commercial GPS manufacturers have no right to interference protection from LightSquared's network since they are not licensed users.
