    For the first time, the anti-drone complex "Silok-02" will be presented in the Southern Military District

    The Army-2019 military-technical forum is held at several venues. The main ground is located in the Moscow Patriot park. There is a platform "Army-2019" and in the territory of the Rostov region. This is also a part of the Patriot park, but already located in Sambek of the Neklinovsky district.

    For the first time, the newest EW Silok-02 complex is presented on this territory. This is a complex of technical means of countering the work of unmanned aerial vehicles of various types.

    The complex will be presented by EW South-Eastern Military District specialists.

    It is noteworthy that this news caused a stir in the Ukrainian blogosphere and some media. There were notes and headlines from the series “Russia is installing the latest EW systems near the Donbas”.

    Silok-02 - the development of a previous modification of the UAV countering complex. He is able to automatically track the coordinates of the drone, using a wide range of frequencies. After the detection of the enemy's UAV, the Silok-02 enters the target suppression mode. The claimed range of the new Silk is “several kilometers”. No exact values ​​are given yet.

    In fact, Silok-02 is a new generation antidronic " weapon ". And the relevance of such weapons is growing not only in the military, but also in the civil sphere. Such EW tools, aimed at fighting drones, make it possible to create a barrier to the work of reconnaissance drones, as well as shock UAVs on important objects, including the territories of military units.

    Silok =/= Silk

    It it a diminutive for "strong" in Russian. Like "little strong one". These translation applications are pretty lame if they choke this way.
    In this case the translator assumes upper case first letter means name and stops translating.

    Yeah, they also usually mess up articles dealing with ECM. They confuse 'jamming' with 'stuffing', like WTH lol?

    The new Korsar is making a big impact in Syria. For the first time, Russia has a MALE UCAV.

    A model of a seven-ton vertical take-off UAV will be shown on MAKS

    MOSCOW, Aug 4 - RIA News. The Kronstadt group will present a scale model of a seven-ton vertical take-off UAV at the MAKS-2019 aerospace show, a spokesman for the group told RIA Novosti.
    Earlier, the general director of Kronstadt Armen Isaakyan told reporters that the company could create a vertical take-off UAV with a payload of up to one and a half tons.
    "We do not leave this topic, continue to work in this direction, study the possibilities of civilian use of the machine. At the MAKS-2019 air show, we plan to present a large-scale model of such an aircraft in order to attract the attention of potential consumers," said the agency interlocutor.

    Nice... if you look at the full sized photo of the gray ended things at the muzzle end of the weapon you can see each has a frequency marked on it... so each one sends a signal in a specific frequency range to target aerial vehicles... before I zoomed in I thought they might be little EMP devices that each fire one at a time to attack the target, but having looked at the image closely they each target a frequency to defeat an aerial vehicle.

    Nice.

    The frequencies matches wifi and 4g frequencies so it is specialized against civilian made drones.


    Against a military drone that works on other frequencies it will be useless.

    IMO a vehicles based jammer that analyzes the frequency used and jam it, is better than very specialized man portable jammers that you don't know if it will work because there is no EW that analyzes the frequency used by the enemy drone.

    Yeah, you are probably not getting the point... that is the brief case for sale to foreigners that is shown to the public, there is probably another brief case that it not for sale or only for sale to military customers...

    That case is probably legal in most countries and could be used to defend airports or airshows or other major public events where the threat from air attack is considered sufficient to warrant buying this sort of thing.

    The other jammers wont be so widely sold...

    BTW will repeat my old joke... it is the only Kalashnikov designed to jam... hahahaha...

    We also don't know much about this system... it is possible that those things in the suitcase are both jammers and receivers, so you can fit them and point them at a target to detect emissions, or attempt to disable the system but if they don't work you could fit the other attachments and try them instead...

    The Rex 2 seems to be the upgraded model with an attachment at the bottom and two more attachments on the weapon, while the Rex 1 seems to have two normal positioned attachments and two more added to the left side... presumably another on the other side and it could have all 5 jammers fitted at one time.

    Perhaps the transmitters for the Rex-2 are more specialised or perhaps broadband emitters...

    Such weapon can only be specialized against some threats and this one is clearly made against civilian drones used by guerillas that works on wifi and 4g bands.

    If you want something like you discribed it will be bigger with computers and screens and many different antennas and electronics, hardly man portable. It won't be a rifle like this thing.

    If you ever were wondering what the gun base was for the top anti-drone gun, it's in fact the MR-514K air rifle:

    For all we know the military model might have broad band jammers... perhaps only one or two to cover a very wide frequency range to deal with any sort of communication system, but there is no reason it would have to be man portable either... they might even have a rocket launcher or grenade launcher with explosive based EMP jammer rounds that can be fired at threats to detonate on command as close as possible to take out any sort of drone... or perhaps just disable their cameras which would be enough most of the time...

    That is why that looked so familiar... thanks for posting...

    Forpost unmanned aerial vehicles deployed in Crimea

    According to the newspaper Izvestia, in the article by Alexey Kozachenko, Roman Kretsul and Alexey Ramm, “They will look down on: Crimea will be strengthened by the Forpost UAV squadron. New drones can continuously patrol coastal areas and participate in search operations, ”the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation strengthened the Black Sea Fleet with new unmanned aerial vehicles. The 318th Mixed Aviation Regiment, based near Sevastopol, included a separate Forpost long-range UAV squadron. They can conduct reconnaissance and give target designation to missile systems of ships, coastal complexes "Bastion" and artillery. According to experts, with such drones, the forces of the Black Sea Fleet will quickly detect and hit targets.
