US: Chemring Technology Solutions has developed the world's first miniature GPS anti-jamming technology, GINCAN.

GINCAN will combat illegal GPS jammers and is based on the adaptive antenna concept used by military systems. Chemring Technology Solutions has developed the smallest size, weight and lowest power solution available on the market today, with a chip footprint of only six millimetres-squared.

GINCAN's reduced size and weight will significantly cut power usage and cost, making it ideal for combating the widespread problem of low powered GPS-jamming. GINCAN can be integrated into a range of applications, including in-vehicle satellite navigation systems, cellular technology and be used for the protection of the critical infrastructures which rely on GPS to provide positioning and timing.

Martin Ward, Product Manager, Chemring Technology Solutions, said, "Many years of developing GPS protection technology for the military has enabled our research and development team to miniaturise anti-jamming technology. GINCAN can now be easily integrated in to a range of applications to provide effective protection against jamming devices."
