Generally, the jammers are the devices which jam or band a particular signals which pass through it way. When you place a jammer in a common place it will jam the signal related to its design specification.
There are many more types of jammers are available in the market such as radio jammers which are used to jam the radio signals, laser jammers which are used to jam the laser signals.
The main purpose of using the jammers is to cut the communications between the people who are present in the surrounding area where the jammer is placed. The jammers are used for maintain the higher security level and controlling the terrorist activities.
In the army field, the jammers are used to maintain the high-end privacy and control while transferring any of the data from one point to another without allowing the hackers or other unauthorized access on the Army network data transmission.
Even though there are many users in using the jammers, it will affect the privacy of the normal people. When a jammer is placed a place where large number of people are living, they can’t able to communicate one with others even in a critical situation too.
On the other hand, some terrorist and other persons can able to use a jammer which will result in the jamming the signals passed between the police stations and army filed. To avoid these kind of problems, most of the countries in the world are defining a basic laws for using the laser jammers and anyone who violates this laws will be punished seriously as per the law.
Laser Jammers Specific Countries Laws
- The Commonwealth of Virginia and Washington DC prohibits radar detectors in all vehicles for their citizens.
- All US Military bases have federal laws prohibiting the use of a radar detector while driving on base to ensure more security purpose.
- Several Federal Parks including Yellowstone are restricted to use the laser jammers.
- Most of the well-developed countries are Prohibits radar detectors in all commercial vehicles weighing over 18,000 pounds.
- Other than these there are 2 states which do prohibit the user of laser jammer from mounting anything to the windshield, which includes a GPS or a radar detection and that two states are California and Minnesota.
Windshield mounting laws on laser jammers
This law is followed on the countries like California and Minnesota which is the easiest way to confirm your radar detector to your dashboard. Whatever it is a better way to consider the blend mount rear view mirror mounts which enables the user to mount their Escort, Beltronics or Valentine One right to your mirror, making it easy to see and access.
The FCC does not have very harsh laws towards the laser signal jamming like radar signal jamming. The maximum punishment given is to undergo 5 years in prison with paying the fine amount of $50,000.
Laser jamming laws
As a laser light and not a radio waves a jamming does not fall under the jurisdiction of the FCC, but instead the food and drug administration and presently there are no federal laws against the laser jamming.
But there are some countries which are providing their own laws on the laser jammers. These countries consider the top most security for their country and their citizens. They don’t want to allow a person to interfere in a communication between their citizens without getting a proper permission.
