The Transportation Department will conduct a study in April to determine the level of adjacent band radio-frequency power that GPS and Global Navigation Satellite System receivers can tolerate.
The DOT Adjacent Band Compatibility Study will be performed at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory’s White Sands Missile Range site in New Mexico, the department said in a notice published March 3.
The research effort will cover cellular, space-based, navigation, networks, timing, high-precision and aviation receivers that are used in maritime, rail, space transportation and motor vehicle safety systems.
The agency has also asked GPS/GNSS receiver producers to voluntarily take part in the study through provision of on-site support and devices for testing and sharing of data on the device’s design.
Responses to request for voluntary participation are due March 18, according to the notice.
