The Army is planning to test jam-resistant GPS systems in Europe as a potential step toward countering Russian electronic warfare.
The Army's 2nd Cavalry Regiment in Germany should get the new jam-resistant GPS by the end of 2019, Breaking Defense reported.
The moves come after several efforts by Russia to disrupt GPS in Europe.
"Scrambled GPS signals were first detected during NATO's large-scale Trident Juncture exercises in Norway at the end of October ," Defense News reported.
"Norway's defense intelligence agency said it tracked the source of the signal-jamming to a Russian military base on the nearby, heavily fortified Kola Peninsula. Finland's military intelligence said Norway's analysis mirrors its own investigations and evaluations."
These are the theories swirling after a happy-go-lucky Beluga was spotted on Norway's northern coastline in Tufjord over a week ago.
