Anti-jamming Capabilities for Military and Civilian UAVs

Anti-Jamming GNSSAGNOSIS Anti-Jamming GNSS includes CRPA antenna with 4 or 8 antenna array configuration and 1 signal processing unit with multi receive channels.

Signals acquired by CRPA are digitized with high dynamic range receivers and processed by a signal processing unit. Jamming signals are filtered by using signal processing techniques, and the original signal without the jamming signal, is reconstructed again for delivering to standard GNSS receivers.

Meteksan Defence can develop and produce platform specific GNSS receiver systems with anti-jamming and anti-spoofing capabilities, which can output precise position and velocity information.

In order to suppress jamming signals, spatial filtering methods are utilized. Phased array antennas are used for spatial filtering with respect to incoming signal direction, and jamming signals are separated from GNSS signals. Depending on the number of antennas used in spatial filtering, more than one jamming signal can be nullified. It is possible to determine the direction of the GNSS signals by using phased array antennas. By using this information, while powerful jamming signals are nullified by the anti-jamming system, GNSS spoofing signals can also be filtered.
