    More on the GPS vulnerability subject, this time military testing affecting commercial aviation:

    From the article:

    In September 2019, the pilot of a small business jet reported experienced jamming on a flight into New Mexico. He could hear that aircraft all around him were also affected, with some being forced to descend for safety. “Since the FAA is deprecating [ground-based radio aids], we are becoming dependent upon an unreliable navigation system,” wrote the pilot upon landing. “This extremely frequent [interference with] critical GPS navigation is a significant threat to aviation safety. This jamming has to end.”

    The same pilot was jammed again on his way home.
