Low-Power Smart Selective LTE Jammer for Search and Rescue Applications using Software-Defined Radio
Mobile phone localization of buried victims in quick response search-and-rescue (SAR) operations require control over the radio network. To gain control via emergency fallback procedures, jamming the valid base stations in range is necessary. This publication introduces the concept and realization of a LTE jamming system, that can mask specific base stations by jamming the cell-specific reference signal. The selected jamming method allows low-power operation of the jammer for portable use.
