Pentagon officials are telling Congress it should reverse its decision to allow a Virginia company to set up a 5G network that could disrupt military and civilian GPS signals.
The officials testified Wednesday before the Senate Armed Services Committee, to voice their objections to the FCC-approved plan for Ligado Networks to set up a system on the L-band spectrum. By using the L-band, the officials said, Ligado’s system could interfere with GPS signals that are vital for national security.
“GPS allows us to shoot, move, and communicate with speed, precision, and over great distances,” said Gen. Jay Raymond, commander of U.S. Space Command. “It is employed in every step of the kill chain to defeat our adversaries.”
