Airports Facing Escalating Wireless Airspace Defense Threats by 2024


Airports expect to face a range of wireless airspace threats in 2024 due to the evolving nature of technology and malicious intent. These threats include:

GPS Spoofing/Jamming

Malicious actors can disrupt navigation by sending false GPS signals or jamming legitimate ones. This could affect airport systems, airline navigation, and ground vehicle management.


The increasing use of commercial and hobbyist drones can create unintended or malicious incursions. Drones can interfere with flight operations, carry surveillance equipment for reconnaissance, or even deliver contraband.

Cyber Attacks on IoT Devices

 The increasing use of IoT devices in airports, such as security cameras, baggage scanners, and intelligent lighting, makes them susceptible to exploitation if not adequately secured.

Unsecured Wi-Fi Networks

Hackers can exploit unprotected Wi-Fi networks to infiltrate airport systems, which could lead to data breaches, disruption of operations, or unauthorized surveillance.

Rogue Access Points (RAPs)

Unauthorized access points can lure unsuspecting passengers or staff into providing sensitive information or inadvertently allow hackers into secure networks.

Radio Frequency (RF) Jamming

Interfering with essential communication systems such as air traffic control and ground communications can create havoc.

Physical Surveillance Technologies

Malicious actors can use wireless surveillance equipment to gain sensitive information, monitor airport operations, or assess security measures.
