Drone Jamming

Drone Jamming Technology

Drone jammers are designed to disrupt the communication between the drone and its controller, by transmitting interfering radio signals, at bands usually used by drones, and at a power level high enough to “drown out” the signals transmitted by the drone. 

Commercial drones operate on 2.4Ghz or 5.8Ghz, which are usually used as public frequencies and are not assigned to specific use, such as manned aircrafts, cellular communication, TV & Radio broadcasts, etc. 

As such, these bands can be jammed without causing major interferences to the environment. In case the drone relies on stable GPS signal for navigation, the GPS band can be blocked as well, preventing the drone from completing its mission (the drone either crashes or returns to is take-off point).  

Drone jammers are typically effective against drones over few kilometers away. The closer the drone is to the jammer, and further from its controller, jamming will be more efficient. 

Using EW countermeasures, as a mean to mitigate drones, is the safest way, with the least collateral damage and risk for the “blue forces” (the jammer operator). In the event an armed drone is directed towards a target in risk, the mitigation team can thwart the mission without risking lives and leading to the detonation of the bomb. 

The DroneNet’s Mitigation Segment – Drone Jammer

Netline’s DroneNet platform introduces a flexible, adjustable mitigation segment capable of operating as a “standalone” system and can be integrated with 3rd party systems, whether in stationary applications or tactical, on-the-move applications. 

Upon detection of an intrusion attempt by an unauthorized drone into a secured airspace, the DroneNet alerts the operator and initiates mitigation procedures to neutralize the threat. DroneNet’s jammer blocks the communication between the drone and its operator on ISM bands, as well as the GPS signal used by the drone.

Our drone jammer is composed of 5 bands covering all potential drone frequencies of commercially available drones. Each band addresses a different communication channel used by the drone for a different purpose:

  • Disabling the drone’s control & telemetry channel, resulting in loss of control over the drone
  • Blocking the video downlink transmission
  • Jamming the GPS signal, disabling the drone’s navigation & stabilization capabilities

The system’s modular design enables future upgrades and insertion of additional frequencies and threats with minimal effort and down-time.

The DroneNet jamming segment is available in a range of configurations from stationary designs to rapid deployment and man-pack systems, designed to meet tactical mission requirements according to military standards.
