N. Korea readies deployment of new GPS jamming device
North Korea’s military recently completed final tests on a new “GPS jamming device” for use against South Korea and is preparing its deployment into the field, Daily NK has learned.
The Bureau of Weapons Review, an organization affiliated with the Ministry of the People’s Armed Forces, submitted a report to North Korea’s military leadership stating that the new jamming device can be deployed in the field, a North Korean source told Daily NK on Apr. 23.
The bureau examines and determines the possibility of deploying all strategic and tactical weapons jointly developed by the country’s research institutes and military-related factories.
GPS jamming involves using a frequency emitting device to interfere with radio communications and can be used to jam phones, text messages, wi-fi networks and GPS systems. ......
