Abstract. The article considers the impact of intentional jamming on the operation of receivers of satellite navigation systems of aircraft and methods of counteraction to jamming, including:

-                       the classification of intentional jamming affecting the receivers of satellite navigation systems is given: "Energy" jamming – jamming designed to disrupt the operation of the receiver by suppressing a useful information signal and "Simulation" jamming ("Spoofing"-jamming) – jamming simulating signals of navigation satellites, as a result of which the receiver solves the navigation problem with determining the location and motion parameters of the consumer not corresponding to the actual;

-                       the existing methods of formation of "Simulation" ("Spoofing") jamming and algorithms for their detection and neutralize are considered;

-                       the optimal method for solving the problem of combating "Simulation" "Simulation" ("Spoofing") jamming – a method of integrated solution of the navigation problem with its mutual solution according to both satellite navigation systems and inertial navigation system and Autonomous radio systems (DISS, VOR/DME, landing and radio navigation radar).

Key words: satellite radio navigation systems (SRNS), consumer navigation equipment, spoofing jamming.
