What has Zipline done to avoid GPS jamming/spoofing? I can see the criminal element getting in between the launch and its intended target!

Why be so propitiatory on your landing technology? Your're marketing yourselves as a humanitarian effort yet you have secrets in place to keep others from doing the same? This kind of shit bugs me, even Elon won't play this way.

I'm sure the super secret proprietary landing system has nothing to do with that hook hanging off the back of it.

we'll see a hook on the back of a drone makes me or leave me to believe that maybe the line is up high and when the drone fly-by Sekonic catches on to that line up in the sky or something

Half right. It uses the hook to slow down then plops onto a big air mattress.
