The Military jams it’s GPS to simulate war attacks and trains incase something like this ever happens. This is not a normal but is not unheard of the US Doing this.

Wow them jamming the GPS

I’m mean;
It’s all cool to simulate war but maybe simulate the GPS jamming too…

I’m not an expert, maybe it’s impossible

It’s pretty easy for the Military to do it, all they do is walk over and turn GPS off since they own the satellites.

I wonder, does it affect navigation on the ground as well? Like using GPS in your car?

That’s rather interesting on what the US military is doing

I believe it does. But I’m not 100% sure.
