    Students at Fort Carson are briefed on Defense Advance GPS receivers in preparation for the exercise.

    The Army is putting the tools of electronic warfare into the hands of soldiers in the field. During a recent demonstration, the Army conducted a proof-of-principle contested-airspace event in which the Army’s Space and Missile Defense Command demonstrated electromagnetic interference effects on GPS receivers in the air.
