Electromagnetic Interference (EMI)

What is Electromagnetic Interference?

EMI refers to interference caused by electromagnetic waves emitted by electronic devices. It can lead to various issues, including signal distortion, data loss, equipment malfunction, and disruptions in critical systems, making it a critical vulnerability in the realm of wireless airspace defense.

Garry Drummond explains why EMI security is critical to wireless airspace defense

The proliferation of wireless devices, ranging from Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to 4G/5G and IoT technologies, has expanded the scope of EMI challenges. With hundreds of new protocols, frequencies, and operating systems now being used (outside of the WI-FI frequencies) to transmit data, over-the-air attacks are becoming increasingly more frequent and sophisticated. Without broader RF visibility, the attacks go undetected, posing risks to both operational integrity and data security.

How do we protect against EMI vulnerabilities and exposure states?

Continuous monitoring of the network's foundational layers and EMI emissions measurements is crucial to identify compromised or counterfeit hardware that can serve as EMI vulnerabilities. Implementing an EMI Intrusion Detection System and scanning all wireless communication frequencies further safeguard against security threats and malicious activities by providing early detection capabilities.
