GPS Jamming

Nowadays most car drivers would be lost without GPS. The satellite-based Global Positioning System helps us to find our way in everyday traffic – but moreover it enables drones and cruise missiles to successfully complete their reconnoitring or destructive missions. If someone wants to cause an interference in their opponent’s computer, they’d need a transmitter to jam the tracking system, a so-called GPS jammer. These devices are simple to build and jamming the GPS is easy, since the satellites used for location determination send a rather weak signal.
