Egatel is a company based in Galicia specialized in telecommunications that has just surprised with the presentation of a new anti-hacking communications system specially developed to be used by drones. This is the response that the company has had to all those increasingly common programs that, through Wi-Fi networks, are capable of hacking the signal with which a commercial drone communicates with the station.
The solution proposed by Egatel is based on the use of various techniques present in the field of radio frequencies to prevent a signal from being hacked. One of these techniques consists of use the spread spectrum Where the communication signal peaks can be camouflaged in various ways such as softening them or widening the signal as much as possible so that it is confused and does not stand out above the noise.
Egatel presents a new technology that would prevent the drone signal from being hacked.
Another method that this technology can use is called as frequency hopping which is nothing more than the use of a strategy where they take advantage of the possibility of jumping from frequency to frequency so that all users who are listening to a signal cannot detect exactly what frequency the drone is on. As you can see, a technology that literally offers a vision opposite to the one presented to us a couple of days ago. Jonathan anderson.
As a final detail, tell you that the Egatel company is already working together with the startup today Avansig to ensure that, already in 2017, the latter can create a prototype of an unmanned aircraft equipped with this technology. As reported, it is specially designed for all systems dedicated to surveillance, especially inside buildings.
