Since multi path is a real issue in a mobile environment, defining what an “abnormal”
change is could be quite tricky. A reasonable “spoof” would start with feeding the correct
data and then slowly capture the target (still with correct data). Once he is are “in charge”
signal wise, start doing whatever …. If you are talking about a ship, you have *lots* of time.
