Definition Technique to limit the effectiveness of an opponents communications and / or detection equipment. A device used in electronic warfare to inhibit or halt the transmission of signals.
Jamming Methodology Methods of Operation Disable Cell Site Advantage: None. All traffic within the cell site coverage is disabled including including friendly traffic. Disable Handset Advantage: Only handsets within jammer range is affected. Friendly traffic outside jammer range continues.
Jamming Methodology How it works Jammer continuously transmits noise on handset receive frequency Handset cannot receive control data from cell site Handset is disabled. Will not detonate Jammer Frequency Bands CDMA 860 MHz – 885 MHz GSM 925 MHz – 965 MHz DCS, PHS, PCS 1800 MHz – 1950 MHz

Crisis Negotiation Application To control communication from perpetrator to outside. Keeps perp. from knowing SWAT / Police actions and locations. Forces perp. to use “drop phone” to negotiate release. Keeps perp. from calling media to gain recognition. Keeps perp. from calling victim(s) family and placing demands. Keeps perp. from calling or receiving calls from accomplices.

The IED Threat IEDs Designed to cause injury or death using Explosives, toxic chemicals, biological toxins or radiological material They’re produced in various sizes, functioning methods, containers, and delivery methods They can be almost anything with any type of material and initiator The IED Challenge consists of Convoy Protection & Explosive Ordinance Disposal
Cellular Bomb Detonation “After tragedies, cellular networks are typically jammed with calls from people checking on friends and family. Wireless companies say they need to consider the interests of paying customers but ultimately would comply with a government request to go dark. But a shutdown could also hinder emergency personal and government officials, many of whom rely on wireless phones and pagers.” – Wall Street Journal August 12, 2005, Dionne Searcey In Israel, government officials recently have been less inclined to shut down entire networks as they increasingly rely on jamming devices designed to block communications over a short range, according to security experts.” – Wall Street Journal August 12, 2005, Dionne Searcey
IED Characteristics IEDs share a common set of components and consist of the following: An initiation system or fuse Explosive fill A detonator A power supply for the detonator A container These commonalities allow for the creation and deployment of effective countermeasures
