GPS On TabletAs almost everything in today’s technologically advanced world becomes more innovative and automated, the lives of consumers and workers have become simpler and convenient. However, the same advancements in technology also open doors of opportunities for malicious individuals to wreak havoc and cause disruptions — even destructions.

Due to this, the need for improved cyber safety for transportation has become greater and apparent. This is particularly true with the increase in the number of Global Positioning System (GPS) and Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) attacks, specifically in the form of jamming and spoofing.

Detection of faults and potential areas of attacks

Fortunately, today’s top-of-the-line testing devices, including jamming simulators, offer a more reliable and effective means to detect loopholes and faults in a system. Through superior and early detection of such issues, organizations can respond and act accordingly and immediately. This closes the aforementioned doors of opportunities before attackers can carry out their malicious intent.

From limited to countless

Before, testing jamming required users to attach separate signal generating devices for each of the interference waveforms they wished to generate. In addition, users had to make do with the available number of signal generators, which limited their sources of interference points.

Today’s new testing devices have eliminated this time-consuming and restrictive method, replacing them with the advantage of only having the need for single RF output that can generate an unlimited quantity of interference signals. Furthermore, users can choose each interference signal generated within the said RF output to come out in varying power levels, locations, and modulations.

All in all, today’s GPS and GNSS testing and simulation devices allow for the creation of situations and laydowns that can actually take place in the real world. With these state-of-the-art testing machines, organizations can better support their operators and protect their systems from the disastrous consequences of jamming and spoofing.
