ITT Ex­elis ca­pa­bil­ity in GPS in­ter­fer­ence, de­tec­tion and ge­olo­ca­tion

SP's MAI - - MILITARY -

ITT Ex­elis (XLS) has an­nounced a sig­nif­i­cant de­vel­op­ment in the field of GPS tech­nol­ogy. To be known as the Ex­elis GPS in­ter­fer­ence, de­tec­tion and ge­olo­ca­tion (IDG), it will pro­vide near real-time ge­olo­ca­tion of in­ten­tional and un­in­ten­tional GPS jam­ming sources through a net­work of sen­sors and ad­vanced ge­olo­ca­tion tech­nol­ogy.

Mark Pisani, Vice Pres­i­dent and Gen­eral Man­ager, Pre­ci­sion In­stru­ments and Po­si­tion­ing, Nav­i­ga­tion and Tim­ing Sys­tems, ITT Ex­elis Geospa­tial Sys­tems said “As GPS jam­ming de­vices be­come cheaper and more ac­ces­si­ble, there is a greater need to pro­tect mil­i­tary, com­mer­cial and in­dus­trial sys­tems from a di­verse range of threats. This tech­nol­ogy is a ma­jor step for­ward in de­liv­er­ing ac­tion­able in­ter­fer­ence in­tel­li­gence to an ar­ray of GPS users.”

IDG tech­nol­ogy is based upon a net­work of threat de­tec­tion sen­sors that are net­worked to a cen­tralised server run­ning Ex­elis-de­vel­oped ge­olo­ca­tion al­go­rithms. These sen­sors would be strate­gi­cally lo­cated around high­risk ar­eas, such as air­ports or util­ity grids, to in­stan­ta­neously sense and tri­an­gu­late the lo­ca­tion of the jam­ming source. Should a threat be de­tected, users would re­ceive pin­point ge­olo­ca­tion in­for­ma­tion and ac­tion­able in­tel­li­gence in or­der to re­spond.
