Jammers can often be seen during military exercises

Most digital communications systems need a synchronization military to be transmitted between the communicating devices. Signal jammer can be concentrated on the synchronization military which will nullify the effectiveness of the entire transmission system. Synchronized systems are very susceptible to jamming. Once the synchronization is lost, the jammer stops its transmission and jammer can only be restart after resynchronization is achieved. Although, it is usually very difficult for the jamming system to know when the synchronization is lost and hence difficult to restart the jammer.

The drone was likely targeted with a jammer, which simply consists of a device equipped with a radio transmitter that can output multi-band frequencies. The drone’s receivers are then saturated, and it can no longer interpret instructions from the person flying it. The UAV fell into the sea, and according to Fstoppers, the city of Toulon has opened an investigation into the matter and has divers searching for the wreckage to further study it.

The ADM-160 was developed by Raytheon as a decoy, and modified into a ‘stand-in’ flying 5g jammer  under the MALD-J program. Weighing less than 300 pounds, the weapon has a range of approximately 500 nautical miles (575 statute miles). After it is launched from its host aircraft, the MALD decoys flies a preprogrammed mission, operating alone or in pairs. As a network enabled platform, MALD-X (and MALD-N) will be able to operate in ‘swarms’ of many decoys, thus overwhelm enemy air defenses and better respond to unexpected threats, it will be able to retask or employ techniques based on parameters they receive over the data link.

The wifi jammer during Red Flag and other exercises this winter are intended to prepare pilots and air crews for operations under those sorts of hostile electromagnetic conditions. The Army will conduct its own GPS jamming exercises as well at Fort Bragg in North Carolina, Fort Polk in Louisiana, and at the National Training Center at Fort Irwin, California, during the same timeframe.

It would be interesting to see if they jammed GPS L1&L2, shifted the timing to produce a false location and/or brute force jammed 2.4&5.8 GHz with 27 MHz etc. Cell/GPS jammers are avalavible to the general public. I saw a thread on here where neighbors were fighting about drone use and one bought this jammer from China. On the manufactures website a video showed the jammer made a P4 autoland supposedly. Does the Matrice auto land when it’s RTH in ATTI mode? I read somewhere snipers took them out but that would be an insane shot, but in autoland it would be easy.
