CRIMINAL GANGS USING GPS JAMMERS TO STEAL CARS

According to a report from British vehicle security firm, Tracker, criminal gangs have been importing GPS jammers from China to help them steal expensive cars or car transporters with valuable loads. However, they are confident these gangs will soon be in for nasty surprise. Tracker, the UK's leading stolen vehicle tracking and recovery system, is preparing to launch a ground-breaking product with greater resistance to jamming. Tracker Locate will provide a significantly enhanced defense against vehicle theft.

Tracking devices have become a major part of vehicle security, with GPS being commonly used. But GPS systems are vulnerable to a technique called 'jamming' which blocks the signal between a GPS satellite and its receiver.

The launch of Tracker Locate marks the arrival of a more advanced tracking device, incorporating GSM, GPS and VHF technology in one unit. The result is a solution far more resistant to criminals using jamming devices.

Used by all of Britain's 52 police forces, Tracker's stolen vehicle tracking and recovery system can inform the police of the initial location of a stolen vehicle. Crucially, Tracker Locate will raise an alert if there is any attempt to jam the communication system or tamper with the unit, so the police and owner are aware of the theft instantly. It then uses the precision of VHF technology to track the stolen vehicle to its exact location.

"Many people are unaware how much we rely on GPS in our lives. It's not just vehicle owners who are under the increasing threat of jamming," explained Stephen Doran, managing director of Tracker. "With criminals increasingly importing jammers from China or manufacturing their own in the UK, experts are even voicing concerns that air traffic control or other important networks may come under attack by terrorists if steps aren't taken."

Stephen Doran concludes, "There is an over-reliance, particularly on GPS alone, as a security and recovery system. With more UK motorists vulnerable to attack from jamming devices, we don't believe a single technology is robust enough. Tracker Locate has been designed specifically to overcome these issues for the stolen vehicle recovery market. But, more importantly, our advances in technology make this solution equally applicable to any market or business where the protection of the asset is paramount and the rising risk of GPS jamming causes concern."
