Drone Jammer Hazard – What if you’ve jammed a drone with a bomb attached?

I came across a very shocking news recently that terrorist organization (ISIS) says that they will use a drone to drop a bomb. A bomb attack that can annihilate an entire city! While drone technology gets more advanced, a drone by itself becomes a very serious problem to a society.

A good news is that drone jamming technology is getting better and better as well, but there is still a big problem with a drone with a bomb attached scenario. Typically drone jammer can jam a few wireless signals such as control signal (a signal between a remote control and a drone) and a GPS signal which will immobilize a drone by not being able to navigate to its designated location.

.

But what it can do best is force a drone to land or someone destroying it from a distance while a drone is hovering in a same place through a jam signal. Neither of these are what we want in case a drone has a bomb. In fact this might be what terrorists want the most as if they were saying “Please jam our drone! We will blow your place into pieces!” In this case, your jammer will work against you.

Solutions?

Some people claims that they could hack into drone’s software and take the control, then they could fly the drone to the safe zone to take care of a bomb. There are two possible problems with this scenarios.

.

A) You can’t hack all kinds of drones. You might be able to do a few. (On top of the fact that hacking one system would take a lot of time.) But there are more new drones on the way.

.

B) Even if you were able to hack the drone with a bomb, a trigger for a bomb is usually a cellular network as opposed to a drone wireless band. In other words, even if you could take the control of a drone with a bomb, a terrorist can still trigger a bomb to blow your place.

Isn’t this scary?

Then what?

.

Don’t get discouraged by this scary fact. There is a third option available with a drone jamming technology. BA Solutions came up with a solution that’s called “spoofing attack” Initially spoofing attack is used for TCP/IP network domain such as IP address spoofing or ARP spoofing. In other words spoofing is sending a peer device of a wrong IP address to cause a confusion.

.

Just like this spoofing technology in the domain of drone jamming is sending a wrong GPS signal to a drone after your immobilizing it first. Then the drone will try to return home based on its factory default setting when it lost a control signal (between a remote control) but actually it returns to a wrong spot (our desired safe zone.)

.

Then you would probably pose another question. What about a bomb trigger via a cellular network?

Drone Jammer
With our long range jammer, we can add multiple antennas for jamming a variety signals.

.

Our drone jammer can not only jam a GPS, control signal but also we could jam a cellular network signal at the same time. So even if terrorist found that they lost a control of the drone, they couldn’t trigger a bomb through a cellular network.

.

AEGIS Dron series (BA Soloultions Drone Jammer) can do what other jammer’s do and more. Also we offer custom tailored design depending on your defense scenarios. Check out our website at http://jamkor.co.kr for details.
