Can I avoid NFC in any way at Toulouse-Braniak Airport

Hello! This summer Toulouse-Blagnac airport that I use as a common place to departure abroad (I live in France) will conduct some NFC technology testing and I don’t like it. Can I do something to avoid it during my time in the airport?

The role of the Jammer is to interrupt the communication link (or network) between two (or more) “partners”, when they try to talk to each other or to deliver certain data between them. Blurring the communication link between a drone and its operator is a specific case among many others; we can try to scramble the communication between a cell and the base station, between two tactical radios, between a bomb and a remote control that is used to activate it, etc.

When presenting your Drone Jammer to potential customers, the first question asked is always the same: “What is the range of your Drone Jammer?”

NFC technology of BlackBerry smartphones will be used from the first arrival of the experiment participators. Their smartphones will become some sort of wireless keys to many things and locations like premium departures area, car park, private lounge area, and so on. There will be also many additional information available through the NFC connection: real-time flight information, vehicle location in the car park, etc.

As long as this technology is based on hardware solutions, this system will identify you and know your location and recent activity even if your BlackBerry is turned off. So if you don’t want the system to track you then the only thing you can do is to block the NFC signal in Toulouse-Blagnac airport and prevent NFC frequency from spotting your BlackBerry in the building.
