Experience has shown that unpredictable disruption of communications during emergency operations can have severe consequences both for personal safety and for the ability to conduct a successful operation. An early-warning service for emerging communication disruption due to both unintentional interference and jamming, would therefore be a significant contribution for increased safety and security in such operations. We propose a solution for such an early-warning service both on the terminal and on higher system level. The solution is based on historical recorded data of both local and global information such as signal-to-interference ratio, interference classification, and position. We show by an example that with this service implemented, the operator will have increased time to take actions before a disruption occurs on a specific terminal.
