  • Interference and Jammers
    • Sources, Effects, Detection, Characterisation, Mitigation, Geolocation
  • Spoofing
    • Meaconing vs Spoofing
    • How to Spoof (simplistic, moderate and sophisticated spoofers)
    • Effects Countermeasures (for different levels of sophistication)
  • Resilience
    • Protect, Toughen, Augment
