150,000 different types of jammers and jamming events

As air systems increasingly rely on GPS for a navigation, GPS interference and interference are on the rise. In the past three years, Spirent Communications, a company that tests navigation equipment, has recorded 150,000 different types of jammers and jamming events. “Breaking into the Global Navigation Satellite System [GNSS] is as difficult as getting a credit card. You can easily go out and buy stuffing. Yes, it is illegal, but if you use GNSS, you might mind,” Spirent Business Solutions Program and technology strategy leader Jeremy Bennington (Jeremy Bennington).

He added that the risks to aviation safety are real and real. “Since 2013, the FAA’s aviation safety information analysis and sharing system has recorded more than 100 reports of pilots’ GPS systems being blocked. However, we know much more than that, because in the reported cases, they deviated. Specific regulations require; they either broke the elevation or went to the wrong place.

Bennington cited several examples of GPS interference in recent years. These include the Eastern Mediterranean earlier this year, which has long been disturbed by five ocean-going vessels and one aircraft, some of which have a range of 25 miles. Last year, GPS was blocked by Russia in Norway for a week. In the second quarter of 2016, more than 50 gps blocker reported the approach of Runway 24 to Manila International Airport, resulting in the loss of on-board GNSS functions, invalid GPS-L and GPS-R messages, and reduced navigation. Performance will cause RNP alarms. This also leads to the omission of methods,

Bennington said that the augmented reality application “Pokemon Go” launched in 2016 encouraged hackers to trick GPS into winning bonuses and posting codes online. “Most of the scams they do are on mobile phones, but you use the same code and use software to set up a radio and pair it with location and synchronization data. He said so you can create a GPS or GNSS spoofing device.

“We have seen a sharp increase in the number of GNSS-related scams, partly due to Pokémon Go, because the technology has rapidly developed and spread across the Internet and the Internet in six weeks. People who desperately need it,” Bennington added. “In many cases, drones are not shot down. This is because compared with drones, the financial impact and loss of life caused by drone evacuation are not serious. Damage. However, with [ Aviation] becomes the target of rogue countries or hackers, and we will see this effect.”
