Breaking the Formation: The Impact of GNSS Spoofing on UAV Swarms

It has been widely demonstrated that GNSS-based localization technologies are vulnerable to signal jamming and spoofing/replay attacks, where a receiver can be either denied positioning or deceived to compute a forged PVT solution. Today, it is possible to spoof a GNSS receiver to any arbitrary location and time in the world with many incidents being reported in the wild.

Trimble executive: GNSS still core of PNT

Speaking to Inside GNSS at the recent InterGEO conference in Berlin, Olivier Casabianca, Vice President of Trimble Positioning Services, said “If you look at the way we work today, GNSS is still the key component, serving all of what we would consider the central geospatial industries, meaning construction, agriculture, transportation, etcetera. People talk about making a digital version of the world, and we understand that starts with knowing where you are, before, during and after, whatever job you’re doing. Precise positioning is fundamental.”
