The paper “Aviation GPS Incidents Show the Importance of backup Systems” by London Economics highlights the importance of backup systems in aviation.

Despite GPS interference at an airport without a backup system causing air service cancellation, backup systems at the Denver and Dallas Fort Worth airports prevented any noticeable impacts on air travel.

The paper suggests that disruption of GPS for ground functions could cause numerous flight delays and cancellations, potentially impacting the entire air transport system.
