THE PERFORMANCE OF THE FOLLOWER JAMMER WITH A WIDEBAND-SCANNING RECEIVER
Modern wideband-scanning receivers achieve a scanning speed of tens of gigahertz per second. It allows constructing
follower jammers that can jam contemporary frequency hopping systems. The existing articles about the influence of
follower jammers on frequency hopping systems are focused on geometrical or power aspects of jamming only. Analyses of
the jamming probability (ie, what relative part of transmission is jammed) are not published yet. In this article, a
mathematical model for computation of this jamming probability is derived. An analysis of the performance of follower
jammers is performed, too.
