JAVAD GNSS has introduced J-Shield, an improvement in its GNSS protection filters that protects the L1 band against 10L, 10H and 10R handset interference (such as the interference encountered with LightSquared) as well as all other interference that might occur in any other GNSS band. "This will help to make the bands near any GNSS band to be freed for other usages like broadband wireless, which the U.S. desperately needs to catch up with other nations (currently the U.S. is number 16 in the world)," said Javad Ashjaee, president and CEO. "And to help to create competition to potentially reduce the wireband costs in the U.S. to 1/3 of what it is today."

At ION GNSS 2012 Nashville, Tenn., on Sept. 20, Ashjaee will present "All About GNSS Interferences and Jammers," in which he will address sources of interference, ways to quantify and analyze interference and means of protecting against interference. He will also present details on the J-Shield technology. Ashjaee will be available to discuss the technology at JAVAD's booth during the ION exhibition, Sept. 19-21.
