The Consideration of GPS Jamming Signal Due to Propagation Path Loss

  • Kwangsoob Ko
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 235)


The paper is considered on the loss of GPS jamming signal due to propagation path. The parameters related to the additional loss are estimated under possible assumptions to investigate the propagation phenomenon which may affect to the range of jamming against receivers. The simple scenario is adapted in order to estimate the effective propagation range. Several distinct results are shown for analyzing the jamming characteristics due to propagation path loss.
