Focus Telecom announced today that under its support and maintenance contract of all of its “National Time” systems at INPL (Israel National Physics Lab) in Jerusalem, it had installed a GPSdome unit for GPS cyber protection of the GPS/GNSS signals.
The GPSdome cyber protection system, developed by infiniDome, an Israeli startup company, will be tested and measured by INPL’s own Dr. Nadya Goldovsky, on its ability to protect the received satellite signals of the international time (UTC) from the GPS/GNSS satellites and the Israeli national clock from jamming attacks and other interferences, along with a cloud-based monitoring system that will report any attack in real-time.
“GPSdome is a cyber protection system developed based on military technologies and principals which was adapted to non-military, commercial use”, said Omer Sharar, infiniDome’s CEO. “Our systems are already deployed and operational in Israel at multiple sites in the defense/HLS sector, border protection, financial sector, and telecom sector. Recently, infiniDome has signed a global distribution contract with an international PNT solution provider to sell its GPSdome systems in over 120 countries.”
“The market for GPS/GNSS protection systems, especially against jamming, spoofing, and other interferences, is growing rapidly across the world as a response to the rising number of attacks by use of cheap, easily obtainable jamming and spoofing devices”, said Gai Mar-Chaim, senior partner at a strategic consulting company, POC. “Markets and Markets research company, published a recent report in which it predicts the market to grow beyond $5B as early as in 2022”.
