Electric signals or waves are as important to electronic equipment as blood is to humans and animals: when deprived of these life-giving elements, equipment, people, and animals are rendered dead to the world.

The Military & Anti-Jamming Equipment

Companies like military contractor Raytheon offer GPS anti-jamming solutions for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), missile platforms, and larger military equipment including jets and rockets. The US Naval Observatory now uses anti-jamming technology (GAJT) that protects GPS-based equipment used in navigation and scanning from signal interference.

North America is currently the fastest growing sector of the anti-jamming market because of the presence of three leading providers: Rockwell Collins, Inc., Raytheon Company, and NovAtel, Inc. But Raytheon UK has been developing the technology for more than 20 years and produces and supplies GPS anti-spamming systems to a majority of the world’s military forces.

The market for global navigation satellite system (GNSS) anti-jamming devices for military use in airborne, naval, ground, and unmanned applications, is expected to reach $4.8 billion by 2022 at a compound annual growth rate of 6.47%.

The Use of Anti-Jamming Equipment in the Commercial Sector

Many commercial companies, Amazon for example, which are going to increasingly use drones for delivery and other tasks, are focused on anti-jamming technology as necessary to the safe operation of drones.

The following video explains how Russia was able to gain an advantage in a recent battle in Syria using jamming equipment on NATO electronics.
