Exelis has demonstrated Signal Sentry 1000, which detects and locates GPS interference sources. The device, which relies on longitude, latitude and altitude data, was tested at the Vidsel Test Range in Sweden.
“The test employed eight sensors positioned in an array pattern and showed that Signal Sentry was able to successfully detect and locate the jamming source,” said a company press release. “Having demonstrating interference detection and location capability, Signal Sentry 1000 can be deployed to collect actionable intelligence for law enforcement and protect GPS signal-dependent critical infrastructures.”
Signal Sentry 1000 is part of an Exelis network of threat-detection sensors tied to centralized server proprietary location algorithms, Exelis said. These sensors can be placed around critical infrastructure to automatically sense and locate any intentional or unintentional GPS jamming source.
