The bankrupt firm LightSquared is reported to be sueing major players in the GPS industry including Deere & Co and Garmin International in a New York court over their alleged non-disclosure that there would be interference issues with its planned satellite-based mobile communications system which used a repeater network for coverage in built up areas. After GPS operators and equipment manufacturers eventually objected citing interference problems, the US Federal Communications Commission banned LightSquared from roling out its service effectively causing the firm’s bankruptcy in 2012.
