Collision avoidance is based on radar (primary one, I suppose). No aviation style traffic control at sea, I suppose (and only all or none GPS ever reported affected); so GPS is not involved in collision avoidance process. Spoofing radar is not really possible, jamming, maybe, but they will know that in that case. Maybe military ship was training in invisible mode and was not using radars to stay invisible? Plus many ships moving around and accidents happen, human errors, hardware not working, etc; media reporting will elevate collisions involving US military ships, compared to other collisions (where fewer care) --Resup (talk) 08:32, 21 August 2017 (UTC)
