An array antenna for low power localisation of GPS interference

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Many parties are interested in being able to locate the source of GPS interference, but most methods for locating RF emitters require large systems with high power consumption figures. In order to build a lower power system capable of finding emitters based solely on the power in the signal, a suitable antenna must be designed. In this paper three antennas are designed and simulated. They are compared based on how suitable their radiation pattern would be for locating emitters. A simple version of the best design was tested and it was found to be able to pinpoint an interfering signal with precision better than one degree and in less than a second.
