The extraordinary value of jamming weapons

In one incident in Hanover, Germany, Bennington said, a GPS emulator being used for maintenance disrupted inbound aircraft navigation and actually electronically moved the runway threshold. It took authorities hours to find the source. NASA’s ASRS has recorded more than 100 incidents of interference, some serious enough to cause aircraft to lose position data. While […]

Research direction of a new generation of jamming weapons

Known as MALD-X, the initiative is intended to demonstrate capabilities potentially applicable to the USN’s planned MALD-N stand-in jammer, and at the same time establish an upgrade path for the US Air Force’s (USAF’s) existing MALD-J inventory. Flight demonstrations were completed on 20 August and 22 August on the Naval Air Warfare Center’s Point Mugu […]

The role of rifle type jamming devices

DroneGun is a rifle shaped mobile jamming device that uses electromagnetic signals to either force a drone to land or return to its point of origin. It also isolates the jamming to the right range, avoiding disruptions to friendly communication channels. The situation was similarly serious in September 2017, when airliners from companies SAS and […]
