Charles Curry, founder of GPS resilience company Chronos Technology and contributor to the report, told El Reg: “There is no difference in my mind between a cyber attack over the internet and a cyber attack using GPS jammer technology. It’s something that North Korea has been doing for some time, as well as Russia. What is to stop someone from switching on a high power jammer in central London and taking out the financial services sector?”
Modern battlefields are complicated, and have been further muddled by the addition of cheap jamming technology. It’s now possible to buy a simple GPS jammer yourself, and there have been plenty of instances of nefarious actors using the tech all over. And, it makes sense. Future wars will be fought chiefly with information. They’d have to be. Technology being what it is, if you can kick the essential services out from under your opponent, you can cripple their ability to respond or conduct themselves. It’s a scary world, indeed.
The Justice Department micro-jamming test is the agency's latest effort to crackdown on phone use. In August, the Justice Department asked Federal Communications Commission regulators to come up with a way to stop inmates from using contraband cellphones, according to the Associated Press.
One way to stop these disrupting ringing is to install a device in such places which will inhibit the use of mobiles, i.e., make them obsolete. Such a device is known as cell phone jammer or "GSM jammer", which is basically some kind of electronic countermeasure device.
While some drone guns shoot actual ballistics in hopes of damaging any unwelcome aerial visitors, most modern anti-drone guns use wifi jammer frequencies to confuse the incoming UAV. When a drone’s radio signals are interrupted or continuously jammed, the UAV either lands as a precautionary measure or returns back to its origin. Either way, the goal has been accomplished—your drone gun got rid of the intruder.
