Research Institution
The need for detection of spoofind of ADS-B messages in real-time in an organic manner is discussed. Details of previous experiments demonstrating such spoofing are presented. A novel method to detect such spoofing detection capability from an airborne platform, in real time are presented. The proposed Phase I effort includes modeling, and development of proof-of-concept hardware and software. Phase II involves further development and testing on aerial platforms. BENEFIT: Improved security of the ADS-B system, which currently, can be spoofed. The hardware developed here can be expanded to detect spoofing of other signals of interest.
