UAVOS enhances GPS spoofing protection for UAVs
UAVOS has improved the GPS spoofing identification algorithms for its UAVs, protecting against jamming by the most advanced electronic warfare (EW) systems, the company announced on 9 October.
During the test flights, UAS were equipped with an automatic control system that steadily resisted attempts to interfere with the operation of the on-board GPS autopilot.
According to Vadim Tarasov, UAVOS investor and board member, in a GPS denied envrionment, the UAVOS measures against GPS and other GNSS signals spoofing attacks allows the timely disabling of the GPS navigation and a switch to autonomous flight with onboard integrated inertial navigation system.
The advanced UAVOS countermeasure system ensures the protection of unmanned aircraft, increases survivability and the efficiency of the UAV.
An UAV equipped with a complex of countermeasures against EW systems allows them to return to base and carry out its mission with navigation error of 1.2–2.5 miles per flight hour.
Vadim Tarasov said: ‘The GPS spoofing attack countermeasure system is the result of many years of systematic work by UAVOS in the field of EW countermeasures.
‘Test flights of our unmanned vehicles showed the effectiveness of the mission accomplishment in conditions of a complex interference and the invulnerability of unmanned vehicles to the latest generation EW systems.’
