At infiniDome, the GPS Security Company, we provide front-end cyber solutions that protect wireless communications from jamming attacks. infiniDome’s GPS protection solutions defend GPS systems at the heart of drones and other unmanned systems, vehicle fleets and critical networks as well as defense applications.
GPS is a necessity for police and military drones, for tracking and protecting cargo and for critical infrastructure and assets to operate. GPS is the weakest signal used today. Jamming attacks have become the most prevalent method of RF assault interference used by criminals and terrorists. infiniDome’s products are the first non-military solutions for detecting, monitoring, and protecting all GPS-based system assets.
With the intention of protecting small drones/UAVs, fleets and critical Infrastructure, infiniDome categorized its first product, GPSdome, as a dual-use product. Meaning that with very minimal control by the Israeli Ministry of Economy, infiniDome markets and sells GPSdome and OEM Board product lines globally. GPSdome will continue to be dedicated for dual-use customers and dual-use applications while supporting civilian and government-only GNSS bands.
infiniDome’s patented anti-jamming technology is deployed through our worldwide network of partners and distributors. For more information visit www.infiniDome.com.
