S&T Announces GPS Spoofing Testing Event

Earlier this week the DHS Science and Technology Directorate announced that it would be conducting a GPS spoofing test event later this year. The event will be designed to allow manufacturers as well as critical infrastructure owner/operators to have their space-based position, navigation, and timing (PNT) equipment evaluated in a live GPS spoofing environment.

S&T is soliciting participation of vendors and owner/operators in the test event. Requests to participate should be submitted to S&T via More information about the event can be found here.


While not specifically being mentioned in this announcement, this event is being conducted in support of the President’s EO 13905 – Responsible Use of PNT Services. Information from this event will almost certainly be used to update PNT profiles that are supposed to be developed by the Department of Commerce.

Participation in the free testing program certainly makes sense for PNT vendors that are concerned about the potential for cyber attacks via this type of equipment.
