A Network of Detectors is Needed to Prevent Criminals and Terrorists from Jamming GPS

  • Rating12345

A new report from the Royal Academy of Engineering has concluded that the UK is highly dependent on GPS systems for much of its economic activity. CRFS supports this timely and relevant independent report which highlights how exposed the UK is to interference in the radio spectrum used for GPS. CRFS Ltd of Cambridge monitors the use of radio spectrum using its own specially developed equipment and it regularly detects GPS jamming equipment being used. A network of monitors in our major urban centres will allow us to monitor use of these jamming devices and get them turned off as soon as they are detected. This network will also act as a detector of criminal activity – there is no legitimate use for this jamming equipment. Learn More
