GPS (Global Positioning System) and GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) have become an indispensable part of positioning, navigation and time synchronization in today’s world. However, the widespread use of these technologies has brought with it threats such as signal distortion (jamming) and counterfeiting (spoofing). Developed to protect against these threats and to secure GPS / GNSS technology, GPS / GNSS Anti-Jam Systems play a critical role in the security and defense of positioning technology.
Jamming is an action that deliberately disrupts or blocks GPS and GNSS signals. Such attacks can cause serious problems in military and civilian areas. Accurate and reliable location information is required, especially in areas such as military operations, civil aviation, maritime and emergency services. Jamming attacks can seriously affect the operation of these systems.
GPS / GNSS Anti-Jam Systems
GPS / GNSS Anti-Jam Systems are complex technological solutions designed to protect GPS and GNSS signals and provide reliable positioning. These systems have the following basic features:
Jamming Detection and Blocking: Anti-Jam systems detect signal distortions and can take automated measures against such threats.
Special Antenna Design: Special antennas minimize signal distortion and provide stronger signal reception.
Multiple GNSS Systems Support: Anti-Jam devices can work with multiple GNSS systems and become more resistant to jamming.
Security and Cryptography Layers: Some systems encrypt signals and add security measures, thus providing additional protection against counterfeiting and jamming attacks.
GPS / GNSS Anti-Jam Systems play a critical role for the safety and business continuity of many critical industries:
Military Applications: Anti-Jam technologies support reliable positioning, navigation and communication of military units.
Civil Aviation: Airplanes connect to GPS / GNSS systems for air traffic control and safe landing-take-off.
Maritime: Anti-jam systems are required for ships to navigate safely.
Energy and Infrastructure: Energy transmission lines and telecommunications infrastructure are based on accurate time synchronization and positioning and therefore anti-jam systems are used.
GPS / GNSS Anti-Jam Systems are a critical tool to increase the security of positioning technology and protect against jamming threats. Continuous development and updating of these systems is a vital requirement to maintain security against future threats and increase the reliability of positioning technology.
