Easy Aerial, a leading provider of autonomous drone-based monitoring solutions for commercial, government, and defense applications, announced Wednesday it has integrated the GNSS/GPS signal protection solution of Israel's infiniDome into its line of military-grade autonomous unmanned aerial systems.
The New York-based company selected GPSdome for its lightweight, small form factor, low power consumption, and field-proven ability to detect, alert, and shield jamming signals. As the only dual-use GPS anti-jamming solution on the market, infiniDome’s technology is well suited for Easy Aerial’s global security and defense customers ensuring safe Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) and other critical operations in GPS denied environments, the companies said in a press release. infiniDome provides cyber solutions protecting wireless communications from jamming and spoofing attacks.
GPSdome, which was integrated into Easy Aerial’s Smart Aerial Monitoring System (SAMS) GNSS receivers, employs a unique interference filtering system that combines patterns from two omnidirectional antennas. The technology analyzes the interference signal and feeds its properties into infiniDome’s proprietary algorithm to filter and reject any attacking RF interference, allowing the UAS to continue GPS signal reliance during a jamming attack. Upon detection of a jamming signal, GPSdome notifies operators of a possible signal-jamming interference, according to the companies.
"We chose GPSdome because it’s a proven solution that perfectly suits the diverse missions our customers routinely fly in some of the world’s most inhospitable and hostile environments," said Ido Gur, co-founder and CEO of Easy Aerial. "While our systems are equipped with multiple onboard redundancies, GPS signals are vital to maintaining position, navigation, and timing accuracy, ensuring uninterrupted operation."
"GPSdome delivers anti-jamming technology, unmatched in size, weight, power, and cost advantages," said Omer Sharar, infiniDome’s CEO. "GPSdome is the industry’s only dual-use, both commercial and military, GPS anti-jamming protection. GPSdome not only detects the attack but also shields the received signals from being overpowered by jammers. These assaults can have drastic effects, including losses in property, services, as well as the potential risk to lives."
