GPSDome GPS jamming and spoofing protector

GPSdome has announced the release of its new product, GPSdome 1.0 Model T, which provides GPS anti-jamming and anti-spoofing protection for GPS-based timing systems such as those found in UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) and other autonomous vehicles. The new product identifies GPS jamming and spoofing attacks, and retains the GPS signal reception by using Electronic Warfare algorithms. GPSdome-T will be formally launched at the ITSF 2017 (International Timing and Synchronization Forum) conference in Warsaw, Poland.

“GPSdome is certified by the Israel National Physics Laboratory (INPL), a member of the Bureau International des Poids et Mesures (BIPM) of having a fixed latency of approximately 50 nanoseconds,” said Moshe Kaplan, GPSdome’s CTO. “The minimal, and more importantly, constant latency of GPSdome-T remains identical in jamming or spoofing conditions as in ideal conditions, which makes it a perfect solution for timing systems. We have tested GPSdome-T integrated with popular timing servers, such as Microsemi SyncServer S650 and others. The successful tests showed that the GPSdome-protected timing server retained GPS reception and continued functioning safely under jamming and spoofing attacks, while the unprotected timing server lost the GPS signal and started drifting away from UTC.”

“The expected deployment of 5G cellular networks will require an advanced GPS-based timing system almost in every base station,” said Ehud Sharar, GPSdome’s Chairman. “Without any resilience against jamming and spoofing threats, 5G networks will not be able to comply with the stringent timing requirements of 5G.”

“Our new product release follows successful field tests conducted with critical mission network operators, such as telecom carriers and power utilities,” said Omer Sharar, GPSdome’s CEO. “GPSdome-T was designed specifically to meet the increasing threats of cyber attacks on any GPS-based system. Being built as a simple antenna module, GPSdome-T offers an easy plug-and-play solution for new system deployments as well as simply replacing the existing GPS antenna with the GPSdome-T for the existing install base.”
