Why use drone jamming device?
The telecommunications industry has long opposed jamming cell signals, saying that could interfere with legal cell users nearby. But several companies, including Verizon, A&T, Sprint and T-Mobile, agreed to join in tests of various platforms that can jam all calls or simply unauthorized ones, Stirling said.
Russia has reportedly deployed electronic warfare equipment that is successfully GPS signal jammer small US military surveillance drones. The Russian military has deployed jamming tactics against US drones that have affected the US military’s ability to operate in the region.
A signal jammer was activated by the department of state security, supposedly for security reasons, and made it impossible for the media to report from the National Assembly because all cellphone and internet signals had been blocked.
Drone jammer is equipped with various sensors and intelligent pattern recognition software. As soon as Drone signal jammer has identified a drone, the jammer is activated via an interface and transmits electromagnetic waves which interfere with the radio signal between remote control unit and drone. If a drone is flying on automatic pilot, the GPS signals required for navigation can also be jammed. In both cases, the effect is the same: the drones are disoriented and the manufacturer’s pre-programmed safety procedure generally cuts in, meaning that the drone flies back to where it started from, lands immediately, or remains hovering in mid-air.
However, not every organization is permitted to use jammers, because there is a risk of them interfering with other radio and Wi-Fi connections in the vicinity. “Use of the jammer is therefore reserved primarily for the protection of government installations, major event venues and prisons against drone attacks,” explains Lamprecht. Depending on requirements, other third-party products such as warning lights, smoke grenades, automatic roller blinds or sirens can also be integrated into the Drone jammer platform via enhanced API access.
US officials told NBC News that the Russian military has been jamming smaller US drones. The jamming is focused on the GPS systems of drones, which can result in things like the operators not knowing where the drone currently is, to more extreme results like crashes.
Le Thi Thu Hang told the press that the establishment of China’s electronic warfare equipment to cause radio jamming on Mischief Reef and Fiery Cross on Truong Sa goes against international conventions and Vietnam requested the northern neighbor to remove the system.
