Russian GPS signal jammer weapons
According to a Russian satellite network reported on July 9th, a Russian Defense Industry Complex said that Russia is making new jamming machines that can scrap military satellites.
He said: «at present, the construction of jammers is being carried out, which will replace the» -22PP «woodcutter» aircraft «serving in the air force. The new jammer will have new equipment to carry out electronic interference suppression for any target in sea, land, land and air, and to scrap the enemy’s satellite for ensuring ground navigation and radio communication. »
Perhaps sensing the hard road ahead for jammers, the NSW government has previously flagged the possible use of jamming technologies to stop inmates from using mobile phones.
Comms Alliance and AMTA also said that any arrangements that are put in place for jammers beyond 2018 will need to have in-built review mechanisms so the impact of the technology on future 5G operations can be reviewed. Copyright © iTnews.
Russia has experimented with electronic signal blocker in the United States
The Russians began jamming some smaller U.S. drones several weeks ago, the officials said, after a series of suspected chemical weapons attacks on civilians in rebel-held eastern Ghouta. The Russian military was concerned the U.S. military would retaliate for the attacks and began jamming the GPS systems of drones operating in the area, the officials explained.
U.S. analysts first caught the Russian military drone jammer drones in eastern Ukraine four years ago, after the invasion of Crimea, according to Humphreys. He said the jammers were initially detected as faint signals from space, bouncing off the earth’s surface. The jammers «had a pretty significant impact» on the United Nations surveillance drones that were attempting to monitor the area, grounding the fleet for days and halting intelligence gathering from the air.
While jamming isn’t anywhere near shooting, the provocative activity «could lead to an escalatory pattern that could be negative for both sides,» and the US will «not look kindly» on the practice, according to an expert.
US officials told the Wall Street Journal early in April that intelligence officers detected China moving radar and communications jamming equipment to the South China Sea.
