These are the GPS jamming notams. If you look at the location, it is in the Groom Lake valley, a bit to the north east of the main operation area.

Paste N37 19 00 W115 42 49 into Google Earth or whatever mapping program you use.

It seems an engineering project to dig a type of tunnel, right?

Often they drill to study the water table. There is a nuclear plume of sorts slowly heading to Pahrump.

Basically, sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.

But why would they need to jam GPS?

Many UAVs and weapons are GPS-guided. Consequently, adversaries are likely to attempt to jam GPS signals to prevent such vehicles and weapons from being effectively used. GPS jamming exercises are routinely carried out at the Nevada Test and Training Range, China Lake, and other military complexes to determine how jamming will affect U.S. military capabilities.

Thanks...didn't think of it that way.

For a while after 911 when up in the chopter we would experience GPS drop outs in and around Nuclear Power plants and the like. From my understanding they can selectivly turn off or degrade GPS anytime anywhere they wish. It stands to reason that they would effect those usch areas as a security measure.

Ding ding ding we have a winner. Ill bet you if you pull up China Lake or Dugway you may see more fo the same.

If you attend the Nellis air show, then GPS jammer team is there. They have the jamming equipment there as well. It is substantailly less sophisticated than you think. Basically, they have a dual source RF generator that they modulated with broadband noise. Dual band so they can jam US civilian and military gps frequencies. They also have some ols Soviet era jammer gear to show.

Technically, Groom Lake is a neutral country during Red Flag, so they shouldn't be jamming from there. I am assuming this jamming is related to the current Red Flag, which runs to the end of the week.
