In order to react to the development of “Air-Sea Battle” and Global Positioning System (GPS) precision-guided weapons and enhance anti-intervened combat capabilities, a combat mode that obstructs the GPS receivers which utilizes stratospheric airships as the jammer carrier is put forward. A mathematical model about the relationship with the jammer height, transmitted power and the effective interference distance is derived, and the capacity of the jammer is simulated and analyzed. According to the quantitative measurement of the lethality of cruise missiles, the requirement of the effective interference distance is also put forward. And it calculates the required number of jammer that protect point target by using the irregular region Hexagonal grid filling algorithm.
