What does a jammer mean for a country?

Also unique is that North Korea’s jamming is high power, sustained and from fixed locations – so it’s easy to identify where it’s coming from and the impacts. How much more difficult is it when signal jammer for sale are low power and are in a vehicle that quickly passes by? It took many months, and a concerted effort by several agencies, to locate the signal intermittently jamming an aircraft landing system at the Newark (EWR) airport in the United States. And who is to say if a dropped cell call or a glitch in an IT network is due to a jammer passing by or something else?

The country’s anti-drone air defense force is training with a rifle-shaped antenna that can jam the remote control signals of a drone. The jammer-wielding soldiers are paired with other shotgun-armed squad members, whose shotguns fire specialized shells. (As to how those shells are specialized, the Ministry doesn’t say, but there is at least one counter-drone system which fires shotgun shells that release nets on the target). Rifle-shaped signal jammer devices are more common in the counter-drone world, and the United States had adopted them to such a degree that even the National Guard trains with drone-jammer rifles.

Consequently, the newly-released drone gun jammer is a lightweight “soft kill” counter-drone jammer which is designed for use on remote weapon stations (unmanned gun systems) as part of a combined “hard kill/soft kill” layered system. It is system-agnostic and can be integrated with any third party remote weapon station, thus allowing manufacturers of unmanned weapons systems to add a “soft kill” option to their existing products, which may already be in service.

While the tasks of the aforementioned helicopters are relatively straightforward, the SyAAF also operates at least two Mi-17s airborne jamming platforms for the jamming of enemy air defence radars. First seen during a large-scale Syrian Arab Air Force exercise in July 2012, the first type was seen equipped with two oddly shaped containers installed on either side of the fuselage. While the exact purpose of these containers remain unknown, it is now believed that they are part of the North Korean TACAN electronic jamming system installed onboard at least one SyAAF Mi-17.
