Chronos selected by US Department of Homeland Security

Chronos Technology was selected by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) to participate in the 2017 First Responder Electronic Jamming Exercise at the Idaho National Laboratory in Idaho Falls, Idaho, USA on 19-22 July 2017. The exercise evaluated technology solutions that identify, locate and mitigate the impact of jamming of communications and positioning, navigation, and timing systems used by law enforcement and public safety organisations.

The live-jamming exercise featured the first U.S. trial of Chronos’ JammerCam™ which triggers a photo trap as a vehicle carrying a GPS jammer passes by. JammerCam™ then emails the image of the vehicle to a mobile device within seconds of the event and has the ability to both pinpoint the location of the jamming signal and capture an image of its source. The system is ‘always on’ and continuously vigilant to the threats posed by GPS jamming, providing instant actionable intelligence for law enforcement and security professionals.

Additionally, Chronos demonstrated detection of GPS jamming with its two handheld detectors, CTL3510 and CTL3520 which also pinpoints the source of jamming/interference.

As a participant, Chronos not only had the opportunity to validate its jamming detectors in a rare open-air jamming test environment – which is illegal in the United States except under controlled and authorised conditions such as this exercise – but also tested compatibility with first responder equipment and gathered feedback directly from the first responder community.
