Drone Communication Analysis

Introduction

The goal of this project is to sniff and analyze packets on a drone WiFi? connection. By doing this we hope to be able to replicate commands and send them from an outside source to "talk" to the drone. This will allow for a remote override of the drone should it enter a no-fly zone or pose a security risk.

Background

Previously, remote controlled products were sent commands via VHF radio waves. Now, modern drones now use long-range WiFi? provided by the controller, resulting in more secure communication. However, the current method to take down drones is through signal jamming, causing either a forced landing or complete loss of control of the drone. These uncontrolled descents pose a safety concern.

Tools Used

Kali Linux: Ethical hacking package addition for Linux

GNURadio: Software defined radio toolkit

3dr Solo: Drone made by 3D Robotics
