In this paper, we propose to collaboratively learn and develop a training kit/material i.e., global positioning system (GPS) anti-jamming using antenna array, for junior engineers of information and communication technology (ICT) and related fields. When a signal is transmitted from the GPS satellite, it can be jammed by various techniques in the space. Due to increased usage of GPS applications in daily life, it has been found that many ICT students are interested to learn and visualize its core functionality especially about the GPS anti-jamming in their major communication courses. Although anti-jamming can be obtained by various techniques, using antenna array and RF couplers to achieve anti-jamming is an interesting technique which we aim to explore in this paper as a part of collaborative learning and developing educational tool to be helpful for junior ICT students.
