Over the recent past, the vulnerability of Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) to interference has become a concerning issue (Mitch, 2011), (Pullen, 2012). Nowadays, illegal portable jamming devices are becoming popular to protect the user from being tracked by GNSS in their vehicle. These so-called personal privacy devices radiate different types of interference signals in the GNSS frequency bands and can make conventional receivers inoperable. Counter measures have to be taken to prevent strong interference from blocking the GNSS-receivers for safety critical applications.
