In this paper, we are concerned with the problem of estimating the speed of an RF jammer that moves towards a group/platoon of moving wireless communicating nodes. In our system model, the group of nodes receives an information signal from a master node, that they want to decode, while the Radio Frequency (RF) jammer desires to disrupt this communication as it approaches them. For this system model, we propose first a transmission scheme where the master node remains silent for a time period

We develop analytical closed-form expressions that characterize the Mean Square Error (MSE) of the data and jamming signal estimates. Third, we propose a cooperative jammer speed estimation algorithm based on the jamming signal estimates at each node of the network. Our numerical and simulation results for different system configurations prove the ability of our overall system to estimate with high accuracy and the RF jamming signals and the speed of the jammer.
