Most countries, including the U.S., use GPS jammer to thwart cell phone-triggered bomb attacks against government leaders. When President Obama walked down Pennsylvania Avenue after his inauguration, all cell phones were jammed in the area. The U.S. military uses jammers to stop roadside bomb attacks in Iraq.
The U.S. Navy has entered the final phase of development of the Next Generation Jammer (NGJ) pod that will replace the ALQ-99 that has been in use since the Vietnam War. The new electronic attack pod matches advanced electronic-attack technology developed by raytheon, that combines high-powered, agile, beam-jamming techniques with cutting-edge, solid-state electronics.
The AN/ALQ-99 Tactical Jamming System is currently integrated on the EA-18G GROWLER and EA-6B Prowler aircraft operated by the US Navy and Marine Corps. Both aircraft are currently in service, but only the F/A-18G is expected to be in service beyond the mid 2020s. Therefore, the new pod is developed exclusively for the Growler.
“Cell phone use in classrooms is now so rampant that the students now think they have a right to use them during class. They are not listening to instruction and directions need to be repeated many times because they were texting, listening to music on their phone playing a game or watching a video or movie. Some students have even taken or made a voice call during class. Blocking the phone in a classroom is for the good of the students.”
“These systems consist of a satellite armed with a weapon such as an explosive charge, fragmentation device, kinetic energy weapon, laser, radio frequency weapon, wifi jammer , or robotic arm,” read the report.
“All cell phones are used for in school 99% of the time is just for texting your friend in another class, taking pictures, surfing internet, and ‘passing time’ through the social networks during a teachers lecture. Im not saying jammmer should be legal everywhere, but just within school grounds where students are encouraged to focus more in education during school hours and as soon as school is over and they leave the affected grounds, they can turn their phones on again and they’ll have their service for whatever they need it as soon as they’re off school grounds. Or as a more convenient way, these jammers DO come with an On and Off switch, the school principal can just activate and deactivate this device for the appropriate school hours.”
