Iran Accused of Interfering With Commercial Ships' Navigation System
Radio Farda

The U.S. Department of Transportation's Maritime Administration and the central command of U.S. forces in the region (CENTCOM), have warned against hacking and infiltration of navigation systems (GPS) of commercial vessels in the Persian Gulf, Strait of Hormuz and the Sea of Oman.

The MARAD (Maritime Administration) warned that "Vessels operating in the Persian Gulf, Strait of Hormuz, and Gulf of Oman may encounter GPS interference, … and/or other communications jamming with little to no warning."

Apparently, Iran is trying to jam the GPS systems of commercial vessels to lead them to make a mistake and enter its territorial waters.

The region mentioned in the MARAD statement has been the scene of attacks on oil tankers, and detention of commercial vessels in recent months as tensions between Iran and the United States have risen.

Something like radio jamming so they lose their sense of where they are in the sea. They might sell into Iranian waters.  Big story today.
