  • 1. aninconvenienttruthGPS is atime bomb NUNZIO GAMBALE CEO - Locata
  • 2. “I have not come to bury GPS, but to praise it” it I love GPS. BUT…
  • 3. Australian hi-tech.GPS is broken we are fixing it.
  • 4. The Problem 1 Most have no clue of the danger down the track
  • 5. A Superb Solution 2 Most do not know that Aussies have invented onePicture Credit: Getty Images
  • 6. A Plug 3 Incomparable chance for Australia to lead the world
  • 7. The GPS Problem “Most people have no idea there even is a problem” problem
  • 8. Perception Problem Perpetuated The GPS everywhere delusionTom Hanks examines a GPS device in The Da Vinci Code by Sony Pictures
  • 9. The GPS precision position delusion Perception Problem “I really KNOW where I am” am delusion Really? He is here She is here
  • 10. Perception Problem Perpetuatedby PRESS… by INSTITUTIONS… by COMPANIES…
  • 11. BUT… They’re not “experts” So the public can be forgivenHe is here She is here
  • 12. But The Problem off that lightly YOU don’t get Govt & the Spatial Industryhave special responsibility to MITIGATE risk. You have been WARNED for years.
  • 13. GPS is CRITICAL infrastructure!
  • 14. GPS is CRITICALLY important! Its huge success is its biggest problem
  • 15. GPS is CRITICALLY important!Across the globe VERY FEW realize how much of theworld’s technology now DEPENDS on GPS availability.
  • 16. Many Studies Warn of Critical Danger • 1st: Volpe Report (2001) reliance on GPS leads to serious consequences…” consequences • US National Space Policy orders “redundant back-up systems…” systems • US Federal Navigation Plan “develop back-up PNT capability…” capability
  • 17. Most Recent Studies INCREASE Warning • USA: NSTAC Report to the President on Commercial Communications Reliance on GPS (2010) • Closer to home: The Australian Strategic Plan for GNSS (Australian Spatial Consortium - 2012) • Many many more!
  • 18. Pro Industry Press KNOWS…

  • 23. Pro Industry Press KNOWS…
  • 24. Pro Industry Press KNOWS… Quote - PNT’s Troubled Future
  • 25. ESSENTIAL READING• Royal Academy of EngineeringGlobal Navigation Space Systems:reliance and vulnerabilities 2011• UP TO DATE• REPEAT – ESSENTIAL READING!• Superb respected synopsis ofthe dependence everyoneGLOBALLY has placed on GPS
  • 26. The problems are NOT simple to fix The Problem The FAA’s Next-Gen air traffic control system relies deeply on GPS – and it MUST have a back-up!
  • 27. The FAA’sNext-Genair trafficcontrolsystem
  • 28. The FAA’s Next-Gen air traffic control system GPS is INCREDIBLY EASY to jam.Jammers are INCREDIBLY HARD to find!
  • 29. FAA Landing System Test Bed Problem Newark Airport Installation Jammers are VERY HARD toAPNT Study Brief to PNT Advisory Board find! Federal AviationOctober 14, 2010 Administration
  • 30. FAA Landing System Test Bed Problem Newark Airport Installation Jammers are VERYIt took the FAA over 3 months HARD toto find the jamming was coming from trucks on the freeway!APNT Study Brief to PNT Advisory Board find! Federal AviationOctober 14, 2010 Administration
  • 31. BUT…The greatest dangeris in what you DON’T know…
  • 32. BUT…The greatest danger is in what you DON’T know…UNEXPECTED CONSEQUENCES
  • 33. In UKThe GeneralLighthouseAuthoritywanted tosee whathappens in real lifewhen GPS“disappears”
  • 34. WOW!UK’s GeneralLighthouseAuthoritywanted tosee whathappens in real lifewhen GPS“disappears”
  • 35. WOW!UK’s GeneralLighthouseAuthoritywanted tosee whathappens in real lifewhen GPS“disappears”
  • 36. WOW!UK’s GeneralLighthouseAuthoritywanted tosee whathappens in real lifewhen GPS“disappears”
  • 37. LET ME SUMMARIZE THIS UNBELIEVABLE MESS! WOW! REPORT = Less than 1 mW jammer • False positions and speeds • Autopilot turned vessel UK’s General • Not one alarm! Lighthouse A little more jammer power - FAIL – FAIL - FAIL Authority • Electronic Chart Displays wanted to • Ships Autopilot • Automatic Identification System see what • Satellite voice radio happens in • Data communications real life • Maritime distress safety system • Radar when GPS • Gyro-compass “disappears” • Ship Heli-Pad Stabilization System • OH… and GPS finally failed too!
  • 38. WOW!Jammer somewhere in here Would any of you like to try the same experiment in real life HERE to “see” what happens?
  • 39. WOW!Jammer somewhere in here Or maybe HERE? HERE No? I didn’t think so.
  • 40. THE PROBEMS ARE GETTING WORSE! WAT Trial!
  • 41. THE PROBLEMS ARE GETTING WORSE! WORSE! WAT Trial!
  • 42. THE PROBLEMS ARE GETTING WORSE! WORSE! Wired Magazine July 19, 2012 WAT Trial!
  • 43. The EXPECTATION“GPS is the WORLD’S NEXT UTILITY” UTILITY
  • 44. The EXPECTATION“GPS is the WORLD’S NEXT UTILITY” UTILITYNo. Sorry. Long termthis cannot happen.

  • 49. THE GPS SOVEREIGNTY PROBLEM Can we let ANY other countrytotally control our critical utility?
  • 50. THE GPS SOVEREIGNTY PROBLEM With Can we let ANY other country NO BACKcritical utility?totally control our -UP?
  • 51. THE GPS SOVEREIGNTY PROBLEM The answer can ONLY be With Can we let ANY other country NO. Never. NO BACKcritical utility? -UP?totally control our
