In a recent couple of years (UAVs) have amply demonstrated their value and attractiveness with a wide range of applications includes inspection, maintenance, and repair in the aviation world, UAVs are high-tech electromechanical systems, remotely or autonomously controlled.
the most important thing we should be familiar with about this is the same moment transmission technology which means building a similar system using reverse engineering!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
well, UAV works on an electronic panel (stable OR unstable). stable panels are often built for armed heavy UAVs like Chinese CH-4, unstable panels are wirelessly controlled by small devices like skylite UAVs
HOW THE PROCESS OF CONNECTING THE UAV WITH THE ELECTRONIC PANEL DONE?
It can be done via two modes, the first one is GCS (Ground command station). in this mode, engineers can send, receive and control the UAV directly from the panel
the second one is ALR (automatic launch and recovery). this mode is programmed to fly to specific places in a specific time (automatically).
GPS SPOOFING ATTACKS/ UAV’s HACKING.
in fact, the most of engineers and technicians think that it can be possible to take down a UAV using reverse engineering only. but actually, the most successful UAV’s hacking are done by GPS SPOOFING ATTACKS.
GPS SPOOFING ATTACKS?
Disconnecting the connection between the UAV and the panel, to do that we should use a device called SNG (Satellite News Gathering ), with this device, we can generate similar signals with the same frequencies using more power than the normal signals to completely disconnect the connection.
