dittybopper: Fubini: No, the military uses regular GPS technology, but their signal is encrypted so they know the signal is authentic. That's it.

You could still overwhelm it with a $100 GPS jammer on a $50 weather balloon.


Don't worry. They have an app for that.

PandaPorn: karmaceutical: What the fark point was he trying to prove by jamming his employers GPS?

Maybe his boss was a member of the Tea Party and he wanted to show his lack of intelligence to impress him/her.


I hope you stretched before doing that much over reaching into derp.

Came for all the people who don't understand GPS.

Leaving satisfied that somehow this guy's boss has his own satellite.

I might consider it a public service if I was on the way to New Jersey, and someone caused my plane to crash, killing all on board.

Not so much if I was on my way to anywhere else,  though.

cefm: I don't think he thought his clever plan through all the way.  If he knew that his company put a GPS tracker on the vehicle, and he actually thought they were paying attention to it, then he should also realize that they'd notice when his vehicle is the only one not reporting in.  That alone would be enough to be noticed.

Actually, no, they don't.

Maximum slant range for a Stinger is around 15,000 feet.  At a 45 degree angle, that's a maximum height of around 10,000 feet.  And because balloons tend to be roughly the same temperature as the air surrounding them, seems to me it would be pretty difficult to get a lock on one with an infrared seeker.

Now, it would be relatively easy to target them using an anti-radiation missile, but then you're chasing $200 worth of stuff with a million dollar missile.  I'm willing to bet even the most cash-strapped insurgents could put up more jammers (if they deemed it necessary) then the US could send missiles.



Which explains alot about the United State's problems in one succinct statement.

The Slush: dittybopper: The better solution, if you don't want to be tracked all the time, is to cover the GPS antenna with something metal, like aluminum foil or a wire mesh be a trustworthy employee who doesn't spend all day at strip clubs while on the clock.


If I spent all day at a strip club while on the clock, why would they need to track me? They'd know exactly where I was...at a strip club.

Satanic_Hamster: Gary Bojczak may have thought this a sound investment. For, as CBS New York reports, he admitted to investigators that he put one in the truck he drove on behalf of an engineering company called Tilcon.

Author fail.  Tilcon isn't an engineering company.

They the largest/one of the largest asphalt paving companies in NJ and the biggest aggregate producers in the state.  Their paving division is massive, they own a shiatload of quarries, sand pits, asphalt plants, plus they do some bridge work.


So he is trying to mess with one of the "legit" businesses of the Mafia?

Just as no reasonable boss wants his employees to know where she is all the time.
