One of the simplest threats to drones is the blocking or scrambling its reception of a signal from a GPS satellite. This “GPS signal jammer” can produce serious operational impact on military mission and will likely become more and more prevalent.

The Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization, known as JIEDDO, funded the NERO project. The Project Manager for the Army’s Unmanned Aerial System program collaborated with Naval Surface Warfare Center in Crane, Indiana, Raytheon and General Atomics to design and execute proper modifications to accommodate the jammer, and to operate the Gray Eagle aircraft.
