Desperately Seeking North Korean GPS Jammers

Discussion Board on this DLS topic

South Korean intelligence is trying to get their hands on North Korea's new GPS jammer. These items are used to spoil the aim of GPS guided bombs and missiles. The U.S., NATO, Israel and several Middle Eastern nations (friendly to the U.S.) are big users of such guided weapons. The North Korean device is being offered to Middle Eastern Nations (as in Syria, Iran and Hizbollah), and is touted as superior to the Russian model (which Iraq had, and used, without much success, in 2003). The Russians have since improved their technology, but the U.S. believes it's anti-jammer devices are capable to dealing with the new Russian gear. One is never sure unless you can test the anti-jammer technology against the jammer. Thus the eagerness to get a North Korean jammer into the hands of U.S. Air Force anti-jammer experts for examination. Many GPS experts doubt that the North Korean jammer actually exists, as the North Korean have never exhibited much talent in that area of technology.
