Locating Interference to GPS: Protecting the World's Aircraft Landing Systems

Project

Locating Interference to GPS: Protecting the World's Aircraft Landing Systems

GRAS is an enormous initiative that will generate billions of dollars in exports for Australia. The equipment developed in this project will protect the system from radio frequency interfernce. It thus protects these exports, and creates a new exportable product. By protecting this system, it makes air travel safer both in Australia and in the countries that buy this Australian technology.
