U.S. Navy Declares GPS Obsolete, Celestial the Future
A spokesman for the Pentagon speaking on behalf of the Secretary of the
Navy announced on Wednesday afternoon, March 31, that the U.S. Navy will no
longer rely on the GPS satellite network for navigation at sea. Assistant
Secretary Alan Gneiss issued the following statement: “Due to security
issues within the GPS network, the Navy has decided it will abandon the
network starting immediately. Recent U.S. Navy ship encounters and
collisions while on patrol indicate that the GPS network can and has been
hacked to the detriment of safety and wellbeing of our sailors at sea.
Moreover, anomalies in the accuracy of GPS, particularly in the South China
Sea and the Black Sea, indicate that U.S. rivals may be the source of the
hacking. In its place, the Navy will reinstitute celestial navigation and
dead reckoning across the service, systems that can not be hacked and have
proven reliable for centuries. In line with this move and to boost moral,
the Navy has also decided to serve all sailors a ration of grog during the
afternoon dog watch. This second policy move has been well received by the
service.”
