Master's Thesis


Electrical Engineering


The purpose of this thesis is to show how frequency jamming against wireless communication systems can be achieved in a modular form so multiple bands can be targeted depending on the need. In this thesis, the basic fundamentals of frequency jamming will be discussed with an emphasis on time-division multiple access and code-division multiple access communication systems. The electronic design will be examined to determine what techniques are needed to create the jamming signal along with the characterization of the jamming signal to show which techniques are best to optimize the output.
