In one incident in Hanover, Germany, Bennington said, a GPS emulator being used for maintenance disrupted inbound aircraft navigation and actually electronically moved the runway threshold. It took authorities hours to find the source. NASA’s ASRS has recorded more than 100 incidents of interference, some serious enough to cause aircraft to lose position data. While jamming splatters the signal, spoofing actually fools the GNSS receiver into believing it’s somewhere else. In one well-known incident in the Mediterranean Sea, more than 20 ships were spoofed into believing their positions were miles away from their true location.
North Korea is apparently active jamming GPS signals using truck-mounted systems that overrun signals coming from tracking satellites. South Korea is unable to pinpoint the locations of these signal jammerbecause the Army runs them for about ten minutes at a time and then moves them.
Used as the main tactical jamming fighter in the world, the Growler is a specific variant of the F/A18-F Super Hornet, and since operational usage started in September 2009, it has been furnished with the AN/ALQ-99 airborne electronic warfare system. The AN/ALQ-99 itself, in any case, can assert significantly to more older devices, having been engineered in the late 1960s, and first used in 1971 together with the EA-6 Prowler, the EW variation of the A-6 Intruder, was ready to see its usage in Vietnam.
What can Duke do? Widely deployed in the Army and Marine Corps, Duke began life as a low-power, short-range GPS jamme to keep radio-controlled roadside bombs from going off. (CREW is a nested acronym for Counter-RCIED (Radio-Controlled Improvised Explosive Device) Electronic Warfare). But Duke evolved into a much more sophisticated system capable of detecting and disrupting a wide range of signals, from cellphones to the control links for enemy drones, as tested in the joint Black Dart experiments.
Last month, L3 and a team of Northrop Grumman and Harris were selected to move forward from a field of four competitors that also included Raytheon and a Lockheed Martin and Cobham team, USNI News has learned. Soon afterwards, Raytheon filed a protest with the Government Accountability Office, arguing it should have been selected to move forward with the low-band jammer effort.
