Centum Solutions of Madrid, Spain, introduced its NO JAM ZONE interference detector ION GNSS+ in Miami.

NO JAM ZONE is Centum’s solution for GPS interferences detection and location.

Centum will have a booth in the ION GNSS+ exhibit hall to showcase NO JAM ZONE, as well as and a GNSS simulator to show the process of detection and location of different sources of interference.

Critical infrastructures need to ensure the proper functioning of their radio frequency systems. A good example of this is airports. NO JAM ZONE is a GNSS spectrum monitoring system, capable of detecting interferences that affect the proper functioning of these systems.

NO JAM ZONE works with the most-used GNSS frequencies. Because of its distributed network of beacons, the system is able to give, in real time, the position of a source of interference.

NO JAM ZONE  can detect the following types of interference:

  • Service interruption (jamming)
  • Spoofing interference
  • Induced electromagnetic emissions whose power exceeds a certain harmful threshold

Centum also offers the NO FLY ZRONE drone and remotely piloted aircraft system (RPAS) detection and protection system. The active defense system is capable of detecting threats and creating a shield of electronic countermeasures preventing the intrusion of drones in protected areas and diverting them to safe catch areas.

NO FLY ZRONE is effective against the vast majority of drones and RPAS, whether radio-controlled by an operator or by autonomous guidance through GPS. It detects drones and discriminates against those that constitute potential threats.

Once the threat has been classified, NO FLY ZRONE neutralizes the drone control system by taking control of it and driving it to a safe area for its descent and capture; it can also geolocate the operator of the drone.
