Video Todd Humphreys and his team hijacked  drone of the US Homeland Security before the eyes of the officials operating it

According to AP Congress in February ordered the Federal Aviation Administration to allow expanded public and private drone access to U.S. airspace by Sept. 30, 2015.


Currently American government is planning to deploy thousands of drones in USA midair which will help government to monitor and control.

Researches have shown that it’s easy to hijack Drone.

Fox news reported that Professor Todd Humphreys and his team at the University of Texas at Austin's Radio navigation Laboratory can take control of drones that could be flying over U.S. airspace

After taking control they can then guide Drone to another location or crash the drones into the ground or anywhere they want.
Big danger for everyone.

Until now everyone knew the technique of Jamming the GPS system of Drone.

But Last week Researches  demonstrated it’s very easy to hack Drone using 1000$ machine to Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials in the New Mexico desert

They  hack into GPS-guided drones via a technique known as spoofing.

Using a technique called 'spoofing' where a signal from hackers imitates the one sent to the drone's on-board GPS, the Researchers managed to take control of a small but powerful drone in mid-air.

In simple language Researchers send a more powerful signal to the drone than it is receiving from an orbiting satellite and  can make the Drone do anything hacker, controller commands can be used as  Missile for a terror attack.

During the experiment conducted at the University of Texas stadium, the small red drone soared into the sky following a clear set of commands entered into its computer.
Shortly after, the aircraft veered to the side, making it obvious that it was no longer following its original orders.
Then, the drone hurtled toward the ground as if given a self-destruct command and was saved in the last moment.
The hijacker’s team led by Professor Todd Humphreys said that
Spoofing a GPS receiver on a UAV is just another way of hijacking a plane

The concept of drone warfare or even drone monitoring is going to be dangerous, even for the US. Let them learn it the hard way.

Should we wait for another 9/11 or else the menace be averted.

Hackers are getting more talented by the day.
