About That New FAA Contract

I received an interesting comment from a friend of mine, Dr. Martyn Thomas, on my last post concerning the new FAA air traffic control contract. Martyn wrote,

It's relatively easy to jam satellite signals, because they are so weak. It's very hard to jam radar. Has anyone published a vulnerability study for the proposals for ADS-B?

Interesting question. Anyone (especially from ITT or the FAA) have an answer?
