As a result of escalation in the development of various types of wireless technologies, most of the research is now days being done with respect to security in the network. When we talk about jammer, we are in a way discussing about DoS (Denial of Service) attacks in which a harmful enforced cyber-attack is carried out by sending number of messages with wrong addresses to flood the system.

Since jammers can block the system by jamming the various kinds of incoming signals like Bluetooth, or signals used for cell phones, GPS signals, etc. This might cause hindrance in your routine work. Therefore, it becomes necessary to search for the devices which are meant to jam the frequencies, and locate their position in the network. We need to either workout to turn off the jammer itself or a mechanism to notify the respective authorities to disable it.

Since, jamming is used to disorder the current wireless system by introducing signals of higher frequency to cause disturbance in the network at the physical layer. As jammer works opposite of data link layer to disconnect physical layer and network layer. Our location detector should be strong enough to detect at very first instance the strength of the Jammer enforced in the network. In order to find and locate the jammer, we need to know about the radio transmitter power, location where it is placed and the targeted network or system.

Jammers are usually undetectable in the system as users might have poor reception in case of mobile network jammers. Only after careful checking of the network they can be detected.

It sends the signals of various strengths in order to confuse the receptors. To trace and disable the enforced jammer in the network, we have managed to implement ways to detect such jammers by finding their location using the system MAC address and mapping it with the relative IP Addresses.
