Dr. Humphreys talked with the BBC radio show, “The Naked Scientists,” about potential GNSS vulnerabilities.
Helen: So this sounds to me a little bit like when we had computers and we didn’t yet know anything about computer viruses. Almost that there’s a potential for someone to come along and mess around with the GPS and potentially cause some problems. But so far, we’re okay and the idea is that we should be pre-empting those problems
Todd: That’s right and the analogy with computers is a good one. There was a time, perhaps 20 years ago or more when we didn’t have to worry about computer security. But that time has passed and now we’re realizing that we must also pay attention to navigation and timing security.
