MBOC Signal Furor

May 23, 2012  - By

A subsidiary of the UK Ministry of Defence has been granted a UK patent on the MBOC signal design, which was a product of lengthy and cooperative negotiations between U.S. and European scientists.

The UK patent, taken in the names of two UK scientists participating in the project, is being used by a legal firm to demand royalty fees from receiver manufacturers. This is causing considerable controversy. GPS World will provide more context and details in an upcoming story.
