GPS Vulnerability

An I-Team investigation revealed that a radio navigation station operating near Searchlight in southern Nevada was shuttered by the government in 2010, against the advice of top scientists. The station was later vandalized.
The LORAN station was part of a radio navigation network that could have served as an important safety net should the orbiting satellite system fail.
The LORAN radio navigation station in Searchlight was just one of two dozen similar facilities scattered around the country.
The decision to close the Searchlight LORAN and other valuable stations like it prompted some serious questions.
Interesting point of view.  Read the complete post here.
