Chronos signs Framework Agreement for GPS/GSM Jamming Investigation with UK Government
Lydbrook, Gloucestershire, UK – 18 July 2011 – Chronos Technology, a specialist supplier of GNSS (GPS, GLONASS & Galileo) products and developer of GPS Interference Detection Systems, is pleased to announce the signing of a Framework Agreement with the UK Centre for Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) to provide tools and guidance for the impact assessment of GSM/GPS Jamming Devices.
CPNI provides integrated security advice (combining information, personnel and physical) to organisations which make up the national infrastructure. Their advice helps to reduce the vulnerability of the national infrastructure (primarily the critical national infrastructure) to terrorism and other threats to national security. CPNI also provide protective security advice for the London 2012 Olympics and space technologies.
Under the framework agreement Chronos will deliver tools to allow CPNI to develop a better understanding of the impact of these jamming devices on national infrastructure.
“Chronos is proud to have the opportunity to provide a service to CPNI,” said Andy Proctor, Divisional Manager with Chronos, “we are able to build on the knowledge gained within the GAARDIAN and SENTINEL programs to deliver valuable tools to assist with the protection of national infrastructure, whether that be communications, energy or transport systems.”
CPNI are an interdepartmental organisation who provide integrated security advice to organisations which make up the national infrastructure, with resources from industry, academia and a number of government departments and agencies (including the Security Service, CESG and departments responsible for national infrastructure sectors).
CPNI sponsor research and work in partnership with academia, government partners, research institutions and the private sector to develop applications that can reduce vulnerability to terrorist and other attacks and lessen the impact if an attack does take place.
