Cell phone jammers in the country's prisons are not enough to stop criminals inside from sending messages to others outside the prison.
That's the view of senior prison officials, and while network jammers (which they say can be used) are used to block cell phone signals in prisons, other interception techniques are needed for the system to be effective.
"Cellphone jammers are being used. However, to be truly effective they…Continue

The news that Fivay High School teacher (and former professional wrestler!) Dean Liptak is in trouble for blocking cell phone signals in his classroom is completely the wrong reaction from the school administration (and let’s be honest, the government).
Of course, what he was doing was technically illegal. The FCC says: "The use of 'cell phone jammers' or…Continue

As drones rise, so does counter-drone technology. While a variety of potential counter-drone solutions exist, including surveillance equipment such as radars, radio frequency analyzers, or acoustic and optical sensors, as well as high-power microwave (HPM) equipment, drone networks, and lasers, there is another Solutions have been a hot topic for a recent problem in the drone industry: drone GPS interference.

As a professional photographer and drone pilot, I've seen firsthand how drone technology has become mainstream (pun intended) in recent years.
But with great power comes great responsibility, and as our skies become increasingly filled with these high-tech devices, the need for regulatory and control measures becomes increasingly clear.
Enter the world of drone jammers.…Continue

The purpose of these homemade devices was to jam the signals from kamikaze drones, but the radio transmissions protecting the tanks could also reveal the tank's location.
Russia's Lancet kamikaze drones, designed to locate targets and then crash, have become a serious problem for the Ukrainian military.
Drones buzz over the battlefield, flown by pilots on the ground and guided by radio signals.
Jammers mounted on tanks or other vehicles can interfere with the signal and…Continue

"The U.S. military has invested a lot of work over the past decade to improve the security of GPS," said James Lewis, a technology expert at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a Washington think tank.
Lewis said Russia has deployed "powerful" jammers in Syria since 2015, disrupting much of the electromagnetic spectrum. These phone jammer are powerful enough to disrupt…Continue

We are convinced that this was an act of pure, unadulterated charity, uninfluenced by self-interest. Cellphone jammer maker CellAntenna Corp. is calling on U.S. lawmakers to change federal law to allow law enforcement officers to use cellphone jammers more broadly. We bet you can guess why too – and yes, it’s helpful in the fight against terrorism. Because as we all know, there are a lot of cell phone terrorists…Continue

There are a number of systems that can be used to shoot down wayward or dangerous drones, but they tend to have one big problem: You need to be relatively close to the drone, which can be scary if the robotic plane is packing explosives.

Twenty years after the worst attack to ever occur on U.S. soil, it's not just large, populated passenger planes that keep officials and experts up at night, but also the threat of smaller, readily available unmanned aerial systems capable of carrying deadly payloads through the skies of an unsuspecting nation.
Drones are not tomorrow's weapons of mass destruction. They're here today, and the technology required to fashion such a device is only getting cheaper, smarter and more…Continue

Signal jamming is an attempt to interfere with and stop wireless communications. The culprit transmits noise on a specific radio frequency. Then, no one in the affected area can use services that rely on that frequency.
Confusingly, cellphone jammers do not prevent devices from getting good reception. However, they prevent the target from initiating or receiving…Continue

A small surveillance drone flew over the Austin stadium, diligently following a series of GPS waypoints programmed into its flight computer. On the face of it, the mission was routine.
Suddenly, the drone veered sharply off course, deviating from its intended flight path and hurtling east. After a few minutes, when it was clear that something was seriously wrong, the drone made a sharp right turn and headed south. Then, as if some ghost had ordered the drone to self-destruct, it…Continue
