Abstract
This effort will perform a trade study that establishes the technical feasibility of ADS-B anti-spoofing technologies that can either be applied as upgrades directly to the ADS-B or attained by merging with the non-cooperative Sense and Avoid (SAA) avoidance sensor suite. ADS-B signals lack encryption and can readily be spoofed for drug trafficking, identity denial and false target generation purposes. Spoofing can translate the position of drug traffickers away from drop zones. Enemies may want to hide the identities of military aircraft as commercial traffic or flood the skies with false targets to stress or overwhelm the system to hide ulterior activities.
