LightSquared Update - LS Requests FCC Write Specs for GPS - 2/7/12

With Tuesday's filing, LightSquared asked the FCC to enact new rules to require special design standards for GPS devices. In the filing, the company argued that GPS receivers could be fixed using filters or other technical modifications. 

LightSquared acknowledges such a change may not help the company with its current woes, but would be good for both 4G and GPS providers in the future.

Jim Kirkland, general counsel of GPS-maker Trimble, a founding member of the Save Our GPS Coalition said Lightsquared is using the same "false premises and claims that LightSquared has repeated ad nauseam."
