GNSS – Trust but verify

On 19 January 2016 the United States Coast Guard issued an alert (Safety Alert 01-16) reminding users that this past summer (2015), multiple outbound vessels from a non-US port suddenly lost GPS signal reception.

The net effect was various alarms and a loss of GPS input to the ship’s surface search radar, gyro units and Electronic Chart Display & Information System (ECDIS), resulting in no GPS data for position fixing, radar over ground speed inputs, gyro speed input and loss of collision avoidance capabilities on the radar display.
