    I'm sure effective GPS jamming would be effective at confusing the hell out of incoming ICBMs. What's next....GPS spoofing?

    One things for sure - that's one hell of a GPS jammer to extend out 320NM. :eek:
    Since it's origin appears to be circa 20NM off shore I wouldn't mind betting it is being transmitted/radiated from a battle ship.

    GPS jammers for missiles will be of limited value. Any nation capable of building and launching ICBM's etc will also have the capability to augment GPS when GPS is suspect. If, for example, one were wishing to attack WDC you would expect the area to have GPS jammers or systems to divert the missiles from target, but knowing that all you'd need to do is revert to IMU for the final approach -- GPS not needed...

    There are other way I won't mention that make GPS unnecessary for terminal guidance and, again, any nation capable of launching such system will know how to get around it.

    It would be harder for a terrorist to do so but not impossible. Sooner or later they will figure it out and implement the necessary work arounds.
