US: Exelis has developed a new product called Signal Sentry 1000 which is capable of detecting and locating GPS interference sources in 3D by using longitude, latitude and altitude. The product demonstrated successful results in a field testing event held last week at the Vidsel Test Range in Sweden.
Signal Sentry 1000 technology is a network of threat-detection sensors. It can be used to protect critical infrastructure like shipping ports, utilities and government facilities by automatically sensing and locating any intentional or unintentional GPS jamming source. Exelis conducted the test using controlled jamming. The test did not disrupt the GPS signal relied upon by civilian and military operations outside of the test range location. Eight sensors were positioned in an array pattern to show that Signal Sentry can detect and locate the jamming source. The new product can protect GPS signal-dependent critical infrastructures. It is also capable of collecting actionable intelligence for law enforcement agencies.
