Lydbrook, Gloucestershire, UK, 16 June 2015, Chronos Technology, a world leader in GPS jamming detection technology, will lead a panel of experts at the Modernising Justice event taking in place at the QEII Conference Centre, London on Wednesday 24 June 2015.  The panel, which will be chaired by Prof. Charles Curry of Chronos, will include Prof. David Last, Consultant Engineer and Forensic Expert Witness on GPS related issues; Bob Cockshott, Positioning, Navigation and Timing and Quantum Lead at the UK Government’s Knowledge Transfer Network, and Chief Inspector Darren Miller of Hampshire Constabulary with whom Chronos has been working closely to optimise the solution for organised crime applications.

Prof. Curry will discuss the threat of GPS jamming in the UK today outlining who is using GPS blockers or jammers, particularly in organised crime. This will be followed by a panel session with the sector experts presenting a short introduction on their specific activity relating to the use of GPS jammers.  The debate will then be opened up to delegates to ask questions of the panel on the criminal use of GPS jammers.

Prof. Curry said “The use of GPS jammers is now extremely prevalent in organised crime especially in the theft of high value vehicles and plant , and the evasion of covert and tagged tracking devices. “  He added “Government supported research from Innovate UK; the UK’s Innovation Agency within the Department for Business Innovation & Skills, has enabled new technology to be developed to detect GPS jammers and assist the UK’s fight against organised crime.”

Chronos has created a wide range of GPS interference detection solutions from handhelds with direction finding capability to mesh networks which geolocate a jammer in real time. Chronos is now recognised as a global leader in technology innovation in this activity as well as delivering expert advice on threat mitigation for critical infrastructure protection from GPS jamming.

Prof. Curry added. “We are particularly excited about our latest innovation ‘JammerCam™’ which triggers a photo trap as a vehicle passes carrying a jammer. It then puts the image of the vehicle on your phone within seconds.”
