In order for the GPS jammer to work properly, it must be close enough to the signal that its team wants to jam. On the other hand, according to jammer-shop, an independent think tank dedicated to military electronics, high-power GPS drone jammers can detect targets tens of kilometers away. Interference requires more power than detection, so the distance that Avtobaza can interfere with drones should be less than 90 miles.
GPS plugs are not limited to interference. More and more reports indicate that the Russians have increased their ability to spoof system signals, thereby placing the dot receiver in the wrong location. In June 2017, we reported the US Maritime Administration’s report on such incidents in the Black Sea. The ship’s navigation equipment indicated its inland location. Earlier in Moscow, players of the popular Pokemon Go mobile game also reported other location errors that depended on GPS signals from mobile devices for interference.
GPS Jammers are radio frequency transmitters that deliberately block, block or interfere with legal communications (such as mobile phones, text messages, GPS systems, and Wi-Fi networks). Agence France-Presse said that French citizens are prohibited from using GPS jammers, although law enforcement agencies can use it under certain circumstances. But this has not stopped some motorists from using them to avoid paying road tolls or preventing their vehicles from being tracked. They will form bubbles around the vehicle, blocking GPS signals up to a distance of 500 m.
The C4ADS report documents a huge Russian “intelligent jammer” that operates almost continuously in Syria, and its impact extends far beyond the country’s borders. By definition, the message transmitted by the smart jammer appears to be a valid GPS signal, but its content does not allow the receiver to calculate the location. The action in Syria prompted the US Maritime Administration to repeatedly warn of GPS interference in nearby international waters, and the European Air Traffic Administration also warned the country’s international airspace. Eastern Mediterranean. In recent years, the Baltic and Scandinavian countries have also witnessed interference from Russian GPS. In 2017, the NATO Secretary General complained about the blockade of the Russian Navy, which also reduced the quality of mobile phone service in Latvia, Norway and Sweden.
