China and Russia have developed gps signal jammer that can interfere with American drones
China appears to be planning to use electronic attack designed to destroy or control American drones. With reports that the Chinese have attempted to disrupt U.S. military unmanned aircraft at least once in recent years, the country has shown its willingness to use GPS signal jammers to prevent U.S. aircraft from carrying out surveillance missions in the Spratly Islands. rice field.
It's difficult to see what tests will be done, as both the FAA and the Navy are closed to experiments performed. GPS jammers currently on the market that can be purchased for less than $ 200, but the military appears to be testing more powerful systems that can jam the GPS of unmanned and manned aircraft.
Moscow-based Avia conversiya Ltd near the Kremlin. Manufactures portable GPS signal jammers that can seriously undermine Iraq's US satellite-based guidance systems.
Earlier this week, the United States claimed that Aviaconversiya engineers were on the ground in Iraq helping to deploy equipment designed to interfere with US satellite signals. US intelligence has shown that the electronic signals emitted by the Iraqi sabotage system were tracked to a system sold by a Russian company. Intelligence also shows that the equipment was delivered after the war began.
Navigation at sea, in the air, and on the ground all relies heavily on GPS. Many weapon systems, such as cruise missiles and GPS-guided munitions, also rely, at least in part, on technology to reliably and accurately attack the target of interest. If GPS signals are unavailable or unreliable, our combat units will be severely crippled. Enemies know this, and GPS satellites can be attacked in both dynamic (anti-satellite weapons, orbital tampering, etc.) and non-dynamic (jamming, hacking, etc.) methods.
According to an evaluation conducted by NAIC officials, the company received support from the Russian army for the development and testing of GPS jammer products, which were sold especially to Iraq. Intelligence officials believe that after the Gulf War, signal jammer were first imported to counter US and British jets patrolling the "no-fly zone" areas of northern and southern Iraq.
The company topsignaljammer has developed a jammer for GPS. If the number is small, the defense effect will be greatly improved. … Without knowledge of location, it is impossible for headquarters to carry out combat missions and control the army. … If the enemy cannot be destroyed, it paralyzes its combat behavior.
