The aviation industry’s response to recent GPS security concerns

February 2024: The IATA and EASA have reportedly announced steps to “share information about incidents of GPS tampering and make sure pilots and crew can identify when [GPS spoofing] is happening.” During these events, the aircraft will be required to use backup ground technology systems to navigate. The RNL’s Dr. Humphreys is concerned that, while

The aviation industry is not Prepared for electronic Warfare

January 2024: Airway UM688 has been the likely unintentional target of multiple GPS spoofing events. These events manifest as “suddenly, either the plane will start to turn or you’ll get a whole bunch of warnings: terrain failure, navigation error, position error.” The RNL’s Dr. Todd Humphreys believes that these sort of events are “here to

Mounting reports of GPS spoofing against commercial aircraft

December 2023: Reports of GPS spoofing in commercial aircraft centered near the Middle East have been increasing since September of 2023. According to the RNL’s Zach Clements, “theresearch community has long warned the public about something like this.” In fact, the RNL’s Dr. Todd Humphreys displayed the possibility by spoofing a luxury yacht in the

GPS spoofing continuing to affect commercial aircraft

December 2023: GPS spoofing of aircraft has continued in the Middle East, “corrupting their backup inertial navigation systems (INS).” The RNL’s Dr. Todd Humphreys along with Zach Clements are using GNSS observables obtained from LEO satellites to geolocate the spoofers. According to Dr. Humphreys, “the device was on the eastern periphery of Tehran based on
