Because of this, drones often transmit incorrect geolocation to operators, in addition, interference in GPS sometimes causes the crash of drones.
According to the interlocutors of NBC, this situation has a fairly significant impact on the US operation in Syria. The equipment, which is used for the GPS plug, was developed by the Russian military, sources say the channel.

The TV channel does not provide official confirmation or refutation of this information. Pentagon spokesman Eric Paehon, in an interview with NBC, did not say whether GPS problems were causing the crash of American drones. According to him, the US Army is taking measures to protect unmanned and manned vehicles.
At the same time, the head of the State Duma Defense Committee, Vladimir Shamanov, commenting on these reports, confirmed that Russia has the strength and means for this.
Yes, of course, (this) is possible. And what, we will see how they allow themselves to create all sorts of frills there? We have the strength and means for this. And if this is done, then it is necessary to greet our military that they are actively opposing this outrage. Nobody called them to Syria. Therefore, there is nothing to fly there- said Shamanov.
