GPS Anti-jamming Analysis, Filter aboard Military UAVs Protects Them in Hostile Theater

Easy Aerial, a provider of autonomous drone-based monitoring solutions for commercial, government, and defense applications, announced it has integrated the infiniDome GPSdome anti-jamming solution for GNSS/GPS signal protection into its line of military-grade autonomous unmanned aerial systems. The technology protects small drones/UAVs flying “in some of the world’s most inhospitable and hostile environments.”

GPSdome integrates into Easy Aerial’s Smart Aerial Monitoring System (SAMS) GNSS receivers and employs an interference filtering system that combines patterns from two omnidirectional antennas. In real time, GPSdome analyzes the interference signal and feeds its properties into infiniDome’s algorithm to filter and reject any attacking RF interference, allowing the UAS to continue GPS signal reliance during a jamming attack. Upon detection of a jamming signal, GPSdome notifies operators of a possible signal jamming interference.

Easy Aerial selected GPSdome for its lightweight, small form factor, low power consumption, and field-proven ability to detect, alert, and shield jamming signals, according to both companies. infiniDome’s technology is suited for Easy Aerial’s global security and defense customers ensuring safe beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) and other critical operations in GPS-denied environments.

“We chose GPSdome because it suits the missions our customers routinely fly in some of the world’s most inhospitable and hostile environments,” said Ido Gur, co-founder & CEO of Easy Aerial. “While our systems are equipped with multiple onboard redundancies, GPS signals are vital to maintaining position, navigation, and timing accuracy, ensuring uninterrupted operation.”

Developed and manufactured in the United States, Easy Aerial’s free-flight and tethered drone-in-a-box systems are fully autonomous, modular, portable, rugged, and all-weather capable. They are deployed for mission-critical applications such as perimeter and border security, event monitoring, emergency response, and industrial inspection. Easy Aerial is headquartered in Brooklyn, New York, with regional offices in Tel-Aviv, Israel, and Belgrade, Serbia.

infiniDome provides front-end cyber solutions protecting wireless communications from jamming and spoofing attacks. infiniDome’s products protect against attacks of GPS-based systems which are critical for autonomous vehicles, drones, connected fleets, critical infrastructure, and defense/security.
