INTERNATIONAL - Vehicles that rely on GPS navigation are vulnerable to spoofing, the sending of phony signals to lead them off their intended course.
The palm-size Pyramid GPS SP from Regulus Cyber Ltd. uses a bundle of antennas and receivers to make sure the signals it’s reading are legit.
How It Works:
- A user plugs the Pyramid into a car or drone between the GPS receiver and control systems, or a manufacturer builds it in.
- The device triangulates the source of the signals it’s receiving by combining five antennas and onboard GPS receivers. Signals from unexpected directions trigger an alert.
- The Pyramid switches to navigation from a route it downloaded before starting the trip, then back to live GPS data when it no longer detects any suspicious signals.
