No (Why not?)
Flying a UAV near a friendly Jammer does not hide the UAV icon, even if the enemy player is within the Jammer's radius.
The Jammer will disrupt the enemy's HUD and mini-map, but they can still see that big red "Shoot me down" sign above the UAV, which appears on their HUD (!?).
My question for you forum-goers is this:
Should placing a UAV or UCAV within the radius of a friendly Jammer result in the red icon disappearing from above the UAV/UCAV? Similarly, if an enemy player is within the radius of a friendly Jammer, should the UAV icon be removed from the player's screen, regardless of where it is?

idk, atleast i do not see any exploits coming with this.
Prolly way too situaltional, to make use of this. I don't think i really would plant a sensor jammer to hide the UAV of my team mate. rather just plant a camera, which is totally underused, despite being such a PIA, especially when trying to get it out, its so small, with so much range.
I don't know if the jammer does this, but it should prevent UAVs/UCAVs from detecting anyone near it.
It does. The person using it can see people, but it won't highlight them.
I voted no because the jammer should only be based on personel intel. The Jammer does it's job by protecting the players within it's radius so it renders the UAV obsolete in that circumstance, hiding the UAV would only encourage players to fly it near a Jammer and I don't know about you but I really don't want to deal with another intel system that can be exploited.
no, because the jammer is disrupting their incoming intel, not ours
ah, I see what your saying now charity. good point. maybe it should.
