New York-based Easy Aerial, a provider of drone-based cyber solutions to protect wireless communications from jamming attacks, has integrated anti-jamming technology into their military-grade autonomous unmanned aerial systems.
The technology, called GPSdome, is the only dual-use (for military and civilian purposes) anti-jamming technology available, Easy Aerial said in a statement.
The company said the technology, manufactured by Israeli GPS security firm infiniDome, integrates with Easy Aerial’s Smart Aerial Monitoring System and employs a unique interference filtering system that combines patterns from two omnidirectional antennas.
During a jamming attack, the statement added, GPSdome analyzes the interference signal and feeds its properties into infiniDome’s algorithm to filter and reject any attacking radio frequency interference allowing the drone to continue to function.
“We chose GPSdome because it’s a proven solution that perfectly suits the diverse missions our customers routinely fly in some of the world’s most inhospitable and hostile environments,” said Ido Gur, co-founder and CEO of Easy Aerial.
“While our systems are equipped with multiple onboard redundancies, GPS signals are vital to maintaining position, navigation, and timing accuracy, ensuring uninterrupted operation.”
The other factors that went into the favor of GPSdome were its lightweight, small form factor, low power consumption, and field-proven ability to detect, alert, and shield jamming signals, Easy Aerial said.
