    • Abstract:
      Today, a government technical group reviewed the findings from last month's testing of LightSquared's

      proposal to provide new broadband service. The final test report will be sent to the National Telecommunications and

      Information Administration (NTIA), which advises the President on telecommunications policy, and represents federal

      agencies to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

      Preliminary analysis of the test findings found no significant interference with cellular phones. However, the testing

      did show that LightSquared signals caused harmful interference to the majority of other tested general purpose GPS

      receivers. Separate analysis by the Federal Aviation Administration also found interference with a flight safety system

      designed to warn pilots of approaching terrain.

      The findings were presented to the technical steering group which represents the nine federal agencies that make up

      the National Executive Committee for Space-Based Positioning, Navigation, and Timing. Over the next several weeks,

      the final analysis of the findings will be completed and a final report will be transmitted from NTIA to the FCC.
