The conundrum

The problem isn't who will pay or whos fault this is.

The conundrum:

a) Lightsquared has a license to operate some kind of terrestrial network. Nobody's operated that kind of network since permission was granted many years ago. Now Lightsquared wants to do it.

b) Meanwhile, GPS technologies have blossomed in a manner that incomparable with what's being proposed.

c) Academically, Lightsquared is correct citing GPS receiver design and the historical FCC rulings.

But practically:

a) Lightsquared cannot be allowed to disrupt GPS operations.

b) Though solutions have be identified, the logistical timelines for implementing them are not congruent with Lightsquared's buildout plans.

I think you are correct. A key problem is :

"b) Though solutions have be identified, the logistical timelines for implementing them are not congruent with Lightsquared's buildout plans."

Because the gps industry is uncooperative in dealing with this and instead insisting that lightsquared's plans be scrapped there will never be any point where the above will be true. The gps industry knew that this was coming, the waivers were given half a dozen years ago(see mention of trimble's own filings 5 years ago about this at »www.examiner.com/dc-in-washingto ··· -devices) but they refuse to prepare. And they will continue to refuse to prepare so lightsquared's plans will pose a problem continually into the future.
They won't adapt so there will never be a point at which lightsquared can move forward.
