Reporting Requirements

Section 911 of the act requires congressional notification of any suspected foreign disruption of national security space capabilities. (View source) The original House text pointed to GPS as a capability of concern. (View source) The joint explanatory statement for the final act states, "this notice is not intended to be notification of every anomaly instance; this is only notification when there is reason to believe that there was an intentional attempt to disrupt, degrade, or destroy a national security space capability." (View source)

The report to accompany the Senate bill directs the Air Force to assess the feasibility of multi-year procurement of GPS III satellites by February 2014. (View source)

Foreign Government GNSS Monitoring Stations

Section 1602(b) of the act limits the construction of GNSS monitoring stations controlled by foreign governments within U.S. territory. Such construction requires national security certification that the stations cannot be used to gather intelligence or improve foreign weapons systems. The provision includes a detailed certification waiver process and a five-year sunset clause. (View source) According to the joint explanatory statement, "We do not intend this provision to affect general private or scientific cooperation with other parties." (View source) This provision originated as a Senate amendment (No. 2185) to S. 1197. (View source)

Military User Equipment

The report to accompany the House bill notes a misalignment among the next generation GPS space, control, and user segments. The report states, "The committee recommends the Department of Defense accelerate the fielding of user equipment capable of receiving the legacy and modernized military codes from the GPS. Further, the committee encourages the Secretary of the Air Force to establish approved security evaluation and certification processes and procedures, as well as to support and ensure sufficient redundancy of the GPS user equipment industrial base.
