America is in urgent need of signal jammer
The US military is “not prepared” to conduct radio and radar jamming against high-end adversaries, a veteran electronic warfare officer now in Congress says. We have made major progress jamming terrorist communications in Afghanistan and Iraq, says Rep. Don Bacon, a retired one-star general who recently visited both countries. But even against such low-tech foes, he told me, we’re hampered by aging equipment — like the EC-130H Compass Call he flew — and outdated doctrine.
For one thing, it turns out we haven’t actually been doing much offensive electronic warfare for most of those 16 years. Back when Bacon flew over Iraq, the overwhelming focus was on just one mission: jamming radio-controlled roadside bombs (RCIEDS).
The Army has no standard-issue offensive gps jammer gear at all, although some is being developed and ad hoc kit is being hastily fielded to Europe. The Air Force has the EC-130H Compass Call, but it’s a big and slow target derived from the C-130 turboprop cargo plane, and the aircraft is wearing out. The Air Force plans to transplant the Compass Call’s EW package to a smaller, newer commercial jet (provisionally designated EC-X), an effort Bacon approves, but it has not bought any yet.
That’s why the US needs “penetrating” jammers, Bacon said: stealth aircraft that are harder – though hardly impossible – to target and which can slip into enemy airspace to conduct electronic warfare at shorter ranges. GPS denial is a becoming a huge issue for American military planners. Peer states, especially Russia, are already putting GPS spoofing and jamming tactics to work during various training events near their own borders. We have discussed this situation in great depth before, and I would suggest you read this article to understand just how deeply the loss of reliable global positioning system data can mean for the U.S. and its allies during a time of war, as well as what is being done to overcome such a monumental hurdle.
Other countries also need gsm jammer
Originally speaking, a cell phone jammer is especially designed for stopping the normal use of cellular phones. It works by sending out the same frequency with the base station of the signal tower. So it must work in effective range, or it will does no work at all. In the last, the signal jammer is mainly used for military purpose. While in the modern society, with the wide usage of the cell phones. The need of the functional mobile phone signal jammer is also increasing.
In June, following the decision from the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC), the MPSC too had banned cellphones at all centres. However, a group of students, which had been demanding various reforms in the exam process, wrote to the Chief Minister’s Office and the MPSC about how many candidates were still managing to sneak in cellphones, using various tactics. Sunil Awatade, deputy secretary with the MPSC, said, “The decision has been taken that in the future, jammers will be installed to put a check on the use of cellphones and related electronic devices. Considering the number of candidates appearing for the preliminary examinations, which is lakhs, it would be impossible to install jammers at all centres.
