Developed in Partnership with United States Army Space and Missile Command (USASMDC)
A contested space environment simulator to emulate GPS jamming.
Imagine that you are a Pararescuemen conducting an on-foot rescue of a downed airman. You are using a commercial GPS to navigate but, for a second, your position appears to have been lost. After a few minutes, it returns and you continue on your way. Little do you know that a hostile source is now spoofing your device, feeding it incorrect information and leading you directly into an ambush. Prior training would have kept you from being the unwitting victim of this malicious spoofing attack." - Launch Stories: On Jamming and Spoofing.
"With just one training kit, instructors are able to train more than 100 Soldiers a day. Soldiers need only about 20 minutes to get up to speed."
"In that short time, trainers from SMDC are able to help Soldiers identify when their communications gear has been jammed. That skill has become increasingly important under the Army's multi-domain battle concept, which envisions dispersed forces operating in contested environments against near-peer threats." - 'Space Kits' help Soldiers recognize jamming in comms devices, networks
