Raytheon’s Next Generation signal jammer Mid-Band solution was selected by the U.S. Navy in 2013 to replace the legacy ALQ-99 systems used on the EA-18G Growler airborne electronic attack aircraft. In 2016, the U.S. Navy awarded Raytheon a $1B Next Generation Jammer Mid-Band Engineering and Manufacturing Development contract.DroneShield’s other handheld jamming devices, the DroneGun and the DroneGun Tactical, work by blasting drones with electromagnetic noise at the same frequencies the aircraft use for control communications and video transmission.
Perfectjammer has announced that it has released the DroneGun MKIII, following extensive development in response to end-user feedback. DroneGun MKIII is a portable pistol-shaped 4G jammer, weighing under 2kg and designed to be used in one hand.The NERO F5 is developed and manufactured by the French Company MC2 Technologies. It is a microwave jammer capable of disrupting and neutralizing all communication protocols used by drones. The product is based on a portable rifle offering great flexibility for operators in terms of detection, tracking and neutralization.
The basic principle of cell phone jamming devices is to emit the same radio frequency signals as cell phones. Because of the same frequency, the phone can’t tell which signal is the regular base station signal, thus achieving “interference”. As long as there is a machine with the same frequency as the phone, it makes a lot of “noise” when the base station tries to connect to the phone. You will find that the signal from the phone is unrecognized, so you will refuse to communicate with the phone.
While GPS jammers can cause minor disturbances, such as signal loss, they can also pose a large risk to public safety. For instance, GPS jammers cannot distinguish between types of communications and may block ingoing or outgoing calls from emergency responders. Additionally, the devices could block more than calls and disrupt all communications within a broad frequency range.
If it becomes clear that the target is hostile, Marines can then use a Modi jammer to disrupt the drone’s links to its ground control station, potentially causing it to crash. The Marine’s specifically developed LMADIS to respond to the ever-growing threat of small unmanned aircraft. In January 2019, USS Kearsarge, another Wasp class ship, deployed the same system as it passed through the Suez Canal.
