2017 First Responder Electronic Jamming Exercise
July 17, 2017 - July 22, 2017
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) is hosting the 2017 First Responder Electronic Jamming Exercise to assess the effectiveness of jamming mitigation technologies and techniques, tactics and procedures.
The 2017 exercise will take place from July 17 – 22, 2017, at Idaho National Laboratory in Idaho Falls, Idaho.
DHS S&T is seeking to evaluate technology solutions that identify, locate and mitigate the impact of jamming of communications and position, navigation and timing systems used by law enforcement and public safety organizations (i.e., GPS, land mobile radio systems [VHF, UHF, 700/800 MHz] and commercial wireless technologies such as Wi-Fi or cellular systems). These technology solutions should make existing public safety communications systems more resilient in the presence of jammers and spectral interference.
