DeltaQuad drone’s anti-jamming GPS system aces testing
Though fast development has increased both the array of capabilities and effectiveness of drone deployment, creators of jamming technologies have managed to keep pace in disrupting those activities. In response, a Dutch company says it has developed a muscled-up onboard system to confound even sophisticated blocking platforms.
Headquartered not far from Amsterdam’s airport, Vertical Technologies says it has successfully tested its anti-jamming innovation aboard its DeltaQuad enterprise drones. The trials involved the company’s enhanced GPS system aboard a UAV also equipped with a standard version of the tech. When flown near, or even directly over military-grade jamming platforms, the optimized unit “maintained an impressive amount of satellite locks” according to a release, while the normal one was neutralized.
The company did not specify how many times the trials were replicated, but did say the anti-jamming device on its DeltaQuad drone “came…
