The 746th Test Squadron will perform a Global Positioning System unreliable event, scheduled at Holloman Air Force Base, June 5, 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. A GPS unreliable event is an interruption to all GPS signals. The interruption will affect any and all electronic devices in the area that use GPS, such as cell phones, running devices, laptops, computers, tablets, cars with navigation and a number of other electric devices. 

Details are available here.

This information is from an announcement posted on the White Sands Missile Range Public Affairs Facebook page. It is unknown whether this test is related to the U.S. Air Force’s new “gold standard” Truth Reference System, based on Locata technology, which is reportedly now operational at the White Sands Missile Range, although no official announcement has been made.
