UAVOS Inc. has announced that it has “improved the algorithms of GPS spoofing identification while jamming with the most advanced EW systems.”
During test flights conducted “under conditions of electronic attacks,” UAS equipped with a UAVOS-manufactured automatic control system managed to regularly resist “attempts to interfere with the operation of the on-board GPS autopilot.”
Thanks to “newly updated technical solutions” for electronic protection equipment and UAVOS’ automated control system, effective countermeasures against the latest GPS spoofing was provided.
This prevented the enemy from re-routing a UAS or destabilizing the operation of its on-board navigation system.
According to Vadim Tarasov, UAVOS investor and Board member, “under conditions of radioelectronic influences the UAVOS system of countermeasures against GPS and other GNSS signals spoofing attacks allows to timely disable the GPS navigation and switch to an autonomous flight with an onboard integrated inertial navigation system – system specifically designed to determine with high accuracy the location of its carrier, and having complex processing and information output of navigation in the absence of terrestrial, marine or space signals.”
UAS are ensured protection thanks to the advanced UAVOS countermeasure system against GPS spoofing attacks, and their survivability and efficiency is also increased.
A UAS that is equipped with a “complex of countermeasures against electronic warfare systems” is capable of returning to the base and carrying out its mission with a “navigation error of 1.2–2.5 miles (2-4 km) per flight hour.”
“The GPS spoofing attack countermeasure system is the result of many years of systematic work by UAVOS in the field of EW countermeasures,” Tarasov says.
“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.”
