The Space Force will let United States allies borrow and test new navigation technology that adversaries cannot jam or spoof. The new technology should help warfighters get a more reliable signal for GPS access.
- Makena Young, Research Associate for the Aerospace Security Project at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, said this sharing of technology is a good sign as it suggests adequate bandwidth, ability to support allies and confidence in the force’s technological capabilities.
- Young said CSIS has noticed other countries are working with allies more, detailed in its space threat assessment coming out in the next few days.
- Space Force is looking more into buying broadband from commercial companies, which suggests these companies are likely increasing their security, said Young.
