It is more than just that, some of the tests involve
 not just jamming, but faking the GPS information,
 so the e.g. military ships will get coordinates
 that are not where they really are, to prove their
 mitigation techniques e.g. eLoran will help them
 detect, and ignore the false position / navigation
 and timing data from their GPS recievers.
