Drone jammers are generated for aerial mitigation of drones to effectively deal with drone threats. And here, we will explain the common interference methods of drones: drone electronic interference vs drone electromagnetic interference.
Drone electronic interference:
Specifically refers to electronic interference against UAV systems, including interference with UAV remote control signals, data links, navigation systems (such as GPS), etc. Drone electronic interference may cause the drone to lose its navigation capabilities, interrupt communications, or lose flight control. Drone electronic jamming is often intentional and is intended to control or prevent drones from flying in a specific area.
Electromagnetic Interference (EMI):
Electromagnetic interference is a broader concept that refers to any external electromagnetic field that interferes with the normal operation of electronic equipment. This interference can come from natural sources (such as lightning) or man-made sources (such as electric motors, radio transmitters). Electromagnetic interference is not limited to drones, any electronic device may be affected. Electromagnetic interference may be intentional or unintentional.
EI VS EMI: The difference
Scope: Electromagnetic interference is a broad concept covering all electronic equipment, while drone electronic interference specifically refers to interference against drones.
Purpose: Drone electronic interference is often for a specific purpose, such as security or privacy protection, while electromagnetic interference may occur unintentionally and is not necessarily aimed at a specific target.
Regulations: Electronic interference against drones usually requires compliance with strict laws and regulations as it may involve flight safety and airspace management. Relatively speaking, electromagnetic interference regulations may be more extensive and involve various electronic equipment and electromagnetic compatibility issues.
Drone jammers usually interfere with the communication frequency band and image transmission frequency band of the drone. The anti-drone system will block the specific communication frequency band of the drone, making it impossible for the drone to communicate normally. At this time, the drone will Land or return in place to mitigate drone threats.
When the control and telemetry channels of the drone are disabled, it will cause the drone to lose control and prevent the downlink transmission of video. When GNSS signals are interfered with, the drone’s navigation and stabilization functions are disabled.
The interference effect of the radio frequency drone signal jammer varies with the distance of the drone. Skyfend anti-drone products Skyfend Blader has an interference range of up to 2KM, and Skyfend Hunter has an interference range of up to 3KM.
In the Skyfend anti-drone product series, there are not only drone jammers, but also drone detection equipment, drone deception equipment, and a variety of anti-drone solutions. Come and learn more with us!
