GAJT (pronounced “Gadget”) is the first single unit GPS anti-jam antenna appropriate for use with military land vehicles, networks and timing infrastructure. GAJT nullifies jammers, ensuring satellite signals necessary to compute position and time are always available.

GAJT provides anti-jam performance comparable to much larger systems, but at a significantly lower cost. GAJT is a Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) product, providing short order lead times and quick deployment. It easily integrates into new vehicle platforms or can be retrofitted with GPS receivers and vehicle navigation systems on existing and legacy military fleets.

How it works


Protects Position; Saves Lives

GAJT's proprietary technology uses a concept similar to that of noise-cancelling headphones; it nullifies the jammers that are trying to overpower the satellite signals that GPS positioning systems use to compute location. GAJT defeats jamming thanks to antenna elements that create up to six independent nulls in the direction of the jammers. With the jammer nullified, your receiver is clear to acquire and track the GPS signals you need to ensure accurate battlefield position.

Without GPS anti-jam technology, a simple 1-watt jammer can overpower GPS signals within a large area, denying a position solution from the victim receiver. GAJT improves the GPS jamming immunity of the connected receiver, significantly decreasing the reach of the jammers, ensuring that positioning capabilities are retained during combat, training or other vehicle based missions.

Without GAJT, operational positioning is lost

With GAJT, operations proceed unobstructed

Successfully tested by both the Canadian and British military, GAJT leverages the proven expertise of two technology leaders known for their products' performance and reliability. Military personnel can depend on GAJT to help maintain situational awareness, protecting soldier's lives and improving strategic battlefield performance.

Instant anti-jam protection

The compact, efficient design of the GAJT antenna makes the addition of anti-jam capability to existing and new vehicles easy. GAJT is externally mounted, requiring no additional electronics inside the vehicle-only power and a single RF cable.

With minimal vehicle alterations required, operator training is unnecessary because the original GPS unit remains in place.

The self-enclosed GAJT provides an all-in-one solution unlike other anti-jam devices that typically feature more than one component. This results in faster installation, minimizes vehicle downtime and installation training, and makes it easy to integrate or retrofit into existing and legacy fleets.

Big impact in a small package

GAJT is an active antenna based on a 7-element controlled reception pattern antenna and null-forming algorithm. The antenna adapts the reception pattern to reduce the gain in the direction of malicious and accidental jammers. Incorporating NovAtel's patented 7-element Pinwheel™ antenna, seven independent copies of the GPS L1 and L2 frequencies are acquired from seven different locations within GAJT's radome. These are then down-converted to intermediate frequency for high-speed digital sampling and processing by QinetiQ's proprietary null-forming algorithm. This optimizes the power and phasing of the seven independent signals to create a single, high quality output signal. The output is then up-converted to the original GPS frequencies. The clean output signal is delivered through a standard TNC connection, via coaxial cable, to the antenna input port on new or legacy GPS receivers.

GPS & Jamming


GPS technology has revolutionized modern warfare. It is now regularly depended on for accurate positioning, targeting and communications. For information on how GPS and other satellite systems of the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) operate, refer to our book “An Introduction to GNSS: GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and Other Global Navigation Satellite Systems”.

While the value of GPS is unquestionable, the increasing availability of jamming technology is proving problematic. GPS signals are transmitted on published radio frequencies from satellites that orbit 20,000 km above the earth. The GPS transmit levels from the satellites are extremely low power, and are only about 50 x 10-18 W by the time they reach the surface of the Earth. This fundamental weakness makes the signals vulnerable to both accidental and deliberate interference. Although illegal, devices that jam GPS signals are easy to obtain. Simple models that plug into 12-volt car receptacle connectors can be purchased for as little as $30 online and can render GPS systems inoperable for miles around.
