Here’s why Marine Raiders want to take down GPS, cellphones and a Russian navigation service | Marine Times

The Corps’ elite operators known as the Raiders are looking to buy small portable tech that can knock out cellphones, GPS and the Russian navigation system known as GLONASS to help prepare its special operators for the future battlefield.

The commercial cellphone and GPS jammers were described in a request for quotation posted by Marine Special Operations Command on Friday.

But these portable devices are not for real-world operations. They’re intended to “replicate realistic conditions” special operations forces may face on a future battlefield, Maj. Nick Mannweiler, a MARSOC spokesman, told Marine Corps Times.
