infiniDome has added a new device to its anti-jamming solutions that’s designed to defend small to medium tactical UAS: GPSdome 2, the latest generation of the company’s GPSdome.
The lightweight, cost effective device combines multiple antenna patterns to create and steer three nulls in the direction of any hostile signal, according to a news release. It also can be used to protect manned and unmanned ground vehicles, increasing resiliency and prolonging mission time, and to help ensure loitering munitions reach their targets.
The solution comes in the small form factor (500g, 87 x 91 x 61.55mm) and minimal power consumption necessary for use on drones. It’s compatible with most off-the-shelf GNSS receivers and standard active GNSS antennas, so it can be integrated into existing GPS systems or into new product lines.
GPSdome 2 uses sophisticated algorithms and a proprietary RFIC (chip) to analyze RF interferences. With simultaneous dual frequency protection (GPS L1 + L2 or GPS L1 + GLONASS G1), the solution can create up to three nulls, protecting from three jamming directions within each band in real time. The solution also provides the platform and command and control with actionable, real time intelligence and analysis on GPS attacks it detects in the field.
The dual-use, non-ITAR device comes with optional mil-spec compliance. The new solution has already been chosen by a leading Israeli defense contractor for integration into their platforms.
