Technology for Creation of False Information Fields for UAV Protection

Part of the Lecture Notes in Networks and Systems book series (LNNS,volume 400)


The issues of ensuring the safety of UAVs are quite acute in modern times. UAVs can be used to implement critical processes. Such processes can be relaying communications, searching for missing persons, reconnaissance operations, guarding facilities, and much more. At the same time, the UAV is often outside the controlled area and is physically unprotected. It is difficult to protect UAVs and communication channels between UAVs since the wireless communication channels used for UAVs are physically unprotected. There are many options for physical protection that involve imposing additional noise on a channel. In this case, an attacker can try to carry out an information attack or, for a start, simply detect the UAV. In our research, we propose a way to hide UAVs by creating false information fields. Next, we test our method by analyzing the radio spectrum and comparing our fake fields with legitimate ones. The results showed the effectiveness of the developed software, which allows you to create fake access points that can be detected by an intruder and allow you to hide the real transmission.
