Perhaps many people know that GPS signal jammers were originally developed by the military to mislead enemy information about geographic location and targets. Then personalize the device for consumers who want to protect their privacy or prevent tracking. Without proper technical knowledge or improper use, GPS jammer can cause harmful communication disruptions.
Last week, LADIIS appeared to blow up an Iranian drone circuit. This is the first "lethality" of energy weapons led by the United States, but it is not always the desired result. Clark said: “Drones usually return to base or land somewhere in standard mode. The system is powerful enough that in small drones, the jammer electronics can interfere with the operation of the drone. If the electronic equipment is close enough, it may cause a malfunction. But generally wave jammers are only used to interrupt communications. "
US military officials said the Marine Corps Dune Buggy may have shot down two Iranian drones in the Strait of Hormuz.
Although LADIIS has all the advantages, they still have blind spots. For example, it is relatively ineffective against fully autonomous drones. When there is no communication, wifi jammers are not very useful. He will destroy the big drones instead of destroying them. There may be friendly fire. For example, a nearby US helicopter may find that its communication has been interrupted by an RF explosion. Therefore, despite the recent success of the LADIS system, it has yet to be seen as the first phase of an ambitious project.
The GPS jammer itself is usually a small, independent frequency transmitter, which can be an interference signal sent in a range of 5-10 meters. These devices are usually plugged into a cigarette lighter or USB / charging port and almost no power is needed. Although GPS phone jammers are illegal in most places, they can be purchased online and come in many forms, such as: B. Wi-Fi jammers, bluetooth jammers, remote control jammers, or drone jammers.
