The project was the work of a consortium which included Acpo and the National Physical Laboratories. The illegal use of Global Positioning System (GPS) jammers in the UK has been revealed in a groundbreaking study. GPS jammers are believed to be mostly used by people driving vehicles fitted with tracking devices in order to mask their whereabouts. In one location the Sentinel study recorded more than 60 GPS jamming incidents in six months. The research follows concern that jammers could interfere with critical systems which rely on GPS. The team behind the research believes it is the first study of its kind in the UK.
