Independent Tests Validate Coexistence with GPS

By Martin Harriman, Executive Vice President of Ecosystem Development and Satellite Business
December 13, 2011

Just a few months ago, some said LightSquared would never be able to solve the GPS interference issue. But with the help of several innovative companies, LightSquared has proven that an engineering solution is possible. For the past three weeks, LightSquared has been testing several devices in one of the most sophisticated testing facilities on the face of the earth. Preliminary tests are proving that LightSquared’s solutions work.

In this video, I demonstrate the testing process. You can see a high-precision device made by Javad GNSS completely compatible with LightSquared’s signal. We look forward to conducting similar tests with other device manufacturers that are currently working on compatible devices.

Martin Harriman is the executive vice president of ecosystem development and satellite business. Harriman oversees satellite engineering, devices and chipset development, service applications, partner solutions as well as IT and Back Office systems. Since the first quarter of 2010, Harriman has been serving as an advisor to Harbinger Global Wireless. Before joining LightSquared, Harriman held a number of senior executive positions with Ericsson in Sweden including senior vice president of sales, marketing, and business development.
