Committee studies impact of jamming signals

Committee studies impact of jamming signals

A committee of ministers has studied the views of workgroups investigating the health impact of signals jamming satellite programs, said the head of the Department of the Environment (DOE).

Massoumeh Ebtekar added that the Communications and Information Technology Ministry has worked on the issue since past several months, adding that a number of meetings have been held between the ministry and DOE.

"Based on studies conducted by the workgroup, the use of jamming signals does not go back to a long time. Thus, adequate information about the effects and consequences of jamming signals on people's health and environment is not available," she said.

The DOE chief noted that the committee, which received the results of studies conducted by the workgroups, has announced its conclusions. 

Ebtekar hoped the opinion of workgroups will be taken into account by related officials.
