Whatever are you talking about?  RF certainly does know'
about DoS, under the name of "jamming".  The U.S. already
has plans in place to jam GPS information when and as
needed, and in fact is trying to persuade the EU not
to deploy its Galileo system on the same frequency as
the encrypted version of GPS they are getting ready to
deploy, because (koff, koff) it will not be "interoperable",
by which they mean that jamming Galileo will also jam
military GPS.
