Most Common Methods of Drone Interference

Drone/UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) is a typical creative invention of modern technology. It has been applied in various industries, such as aerial photography, agriculture, transportation, disaster relief, wildlife observation, surveying and mapping, and other fields. However, while it brings many benefits, it also poses potential risks and threats. Therefore, the development of drone interference is urgent.

When it comes to interference, it can generally be divided into natural factors and human factors. In terms of natural factors, magnetic field changes are the most common factors. In terms of human factors, the most typical ones are those countermeasures in the anti-unauthorized drone market, which generally interfere with drones through signal jamming, sonic interference, radio hijacking, etc. Common drone interference methods can be divided into the following categories:

Signal Jamming: For example, GPS jamming transmits a directional radio frequency signal with a certain power to the drone, so that the drone equipped with the GPS positioning system cannot know the accurate coordinate data, then it can only hover in the air and sway with the wind.

Sonic Interference: The main attack target is the gyroscope carried by the drone. When the frequency of the sound wave is consistent with its intrinsic frequency, resonance will occur between the two parties, which will affect the normal operation of the gyroscope, resulting in the flight disorder of the drone. In severe cases, the drone may crash.

Radio Hijacking: Radio hijacking interferes with the radio frequency between the drone and the drone controller and gains the control of the drone, making it hover in the air, fall directly, or return on its own.

Some drone industry insiders said that from the current point of view, signal jamming is hard to prevent, which makes it the perfect method for the anti-drone missions.

The Anti Drone Systems of NovoQuad Group use state-of-the-art signal jamming technology, which have been proven by the market to be one of the most effective drone interference strategies. Whether it’s a simple and basic anti-drone system, or a complete and powerful advanced anti-drone system, NovoQuad Group can provide a product that fits your budget and needs with better detection and interference effect.
