    Author hang noodles on the ears. What are the frequencies of the AWACS he knows, and that 200 megahertz - a UHF band, he does not understand. I saw the aerial banners, and did not understand what a range. And the size of the antenna can determine the wavelength of the radiation. Now, remember the Popova at the time were spark transmitters, frequency band emitted enormous. In the USSR proposed to use such generators for interference-free communication. Sitting on the couch picking your nose, you can not know the parameters of the equipment. Mishandled Cossack!

    To me, this article is absolutely useless/pointless.  Not only are they speculating everything (no actual data or evidence), but they are assuming a lot and cutting the systems down quite a bit from what I can read here.  So far, we have a member here who stated how NATO is having a fun time getting info and getting jammed pretty hard.  So I call BS on this article.

    Edit: I just read through its article on electronics import substitution and how it wont work.  What a load of shit.  Didnt even bother even to mention about T-Platforms or their Baikal electronics subsidiary.  Didn't bother to talk about the advancements actually made (mentioned a 300mhz elbrus processor but not the Elbrus 4C as an example or upcoming 8C).  Then no mention of the Baikal T or upcoming M.  No mention the new software available and upcoming.  No mention about other plants like the one in St.Pete producing additional components only the one in Kazan, etc.  I would say it was a total failure of an article.

    The good, bad and ugly my friend. The truth always lies somewhere in between.

    Yes it does.  But definitely not on the claims of your link.  Specifically the fact that he doesn't bring to the table evidence but a statement.  We actually do not know the specifications, but what Airbornwolf says is true, then kinda makes this article useless.

    His article on the technology aspect of it also gives me indication that this VPK-Name website is garbage 5th column crap.  Cause it really doesn't take much effort to do some research and already disprove a lot of claims. Some of the posts are not bad. But the titles to their pages are cringe worthy, much like the Globe and Mail or the Inquirer.

    Hardly the case here, just pure speculative baloney, which is unusual because vpk-news is usual a good site. As far as ECM goes, some of the claims of KRET leading a marketing campaign is pure supposition and hyperbole.

    Real world experience is by far the best measuring stick, and why is it so hard to believe Russia has significant lead/advantage in ECM? I mean Russia has been experimenting in ECM warfare/tactics for 110 years, in which successfully deployed ECM tactics back in the 1905 Russo-Japanese war, specifically in the Defense of Port Arthur:




    We can also look at NATO exercises with Slovakian S-300 PMU's, one of the most outdated and obsolete versions of the system and the relevance, context and circumstance of their performances against it using NATO standard ECM tactics.

    Russia has just unveiled its cutting-edge weapon a ‘visual optical jammer’ called "Grach" which emits light so powerful that it can literally blind enemies.

    This weapon is expected to be used in Russia’s ongoing military operation against ISIS militants in Syria.

    EW systems undergo “reality check” in Syria

    The Avtobasa proved instrumental in downing a number of U.S. and Israeli recce drones overflying Iranian territory. Some were captured in good condition and, following a reverse engineering process, went into quantity production in Iran.

    Smoke and Mirrors: Russian Aircraft Get a Sleek New Countermeasure

    Concern Radio-Electronic Technologies (KRET), a subsidiary of the state-owned Russian corporation Rostec, has developed a new type of electronic missile jamming unit for Russia’s Armed Forces, according to RIA Novosti.

    "The jamming transmitter developed by KRET is a single-use device designed to be used by a plane or a helicopter. After the device is deployed via a standard countermeasure launching system, it begins emitting an aimed jamming signal. It is essentially a full-fledged electronic warfare complex compressed into a standard decoy cartridge," the company's press service told RIA Novosti.

    Depending on the situation, the deployed countermeasure either imitates an aircraft, thus drawing away the incoming rocket, or emits a jamming signal powerful enough to prevent it from acquiring its target.

    Last week President Vladimir Putin said that Russia might utilize electronic warfare systems to ensure the safety of its aircraft in Syria following the downing of a Su-24 bomber by Turkish forces.

    KRET is the largest radio-electronic holding in Russia; it was created in 2009 and has more than 50,000 employees. It manufactures a wide range of products, including avionics, operational and tactical systems, electronic warfare and intelligence equipment, friend-or-foe identification systems, special measuring instrumentation, plugs, electric connectors, and cable products.

    Interview with КРЭТ deputy Chief ,Владимир Михеев.


    Some interesting points exposed one more time and also some news, in particular with reference to fotonic based radar array "revolution" and quantum based CPU ,two precise segments where, in the last years, were highly concentrated the Federation's military Science resources and that have already produced true breakthrough, with potential military and civil implications simply incomputables.

    Obviously the quick emergence of those technologies on domestic horizon ( for a certain way even unespected, particularly for what concern theirs development cycle, much more compressed than what initially expected) have reshaped some cardinal choices, also at strategical level, in relation to the technical requirement and even the concept itself of some perspective programs.........

    Russia's East Siberia District Receives New Electronic Warfare Systems

    Col. Alexander Gordeev said that Russian troops in the Eastern Military District (EMD) have received over 10 cutting-edge electronic warfare systems.

    KHABAROVSK(Sputnik) – Russian troops in the Eastern Military District (EMD) have received over 10 cutting-edge electronic warfare systems, EMD spokesman Col. Alexander Gordeev said Tuesday.

    "More than 10 modern tracked and [truck-mounted] systems entered service with one of the Eastern Military District units deployed in the Republic of Buryatia," Gordeev told reporters.

    Dubbed the SPR-2 "Rtut-B," the frequency jamming system is designed to protect troops and equipment; it can cover staging areas as well as individual fixed and moving objects.

    The second EW system, the R-330 "Mandat" named Borisoglebsk-2, boasts a range of improvements on its predecessor. These include an extended signals intelligence and electronic countermeasures frequency range, higher accuracy when positioning radiation sources and higher jamming capabilities.

    Over 850 military equipment units have entered service in the EMD last year as Russia continues to implement a large-scale rearmament program to modernize its military by 70 percent in five years.

    Soldiers in Buryatia received the latest electronic warfare systems
    January 21. 2016 [01.21.2016 09:09:12]
    http://kret.com/news/10262/


    Stations "Mercury-BM" KRET production are some of the most advanced
    More than a dozen modern systems of electronic warfare (EW) from the beginning of January, it was adopted one of the compounds of the Eastern Military District, Buryatia, told RIA "Novosti" press service chief Alexander Gordeyev County.

    "More than ten modern complexes of EW wheeled and crawler entered into service one of the compounds of the Eastern Military District stationed in the Republic of Buryatia. This latest multifunctional complexes EW SPR-2M "Mercury-BM" at the MT-LBU and complexes "Borisoglebsk-2", - said Alexander Gordeyev.

    Complexes "Mercury-BM" designed and manufactured by experts KRET since 2011. To date, several dozen of these complexes are the Russian Army. Just last year, the Russian Defense Ministry KRET put under the state defense order 20 sets of station signals intelligence and protecting "Mercury-BM".

    This system is one of the most advanced to date. Purpose of a multifunctional complex "Mercury-BM" - remote blasting projectiles and missiles equipped with radio controlled fuses. In order to cause maximum damage to personnel and equipment of the missile to explode at a height of 3-5 meters. "Mercury-BM" acts on the ammunition so that they explode at a safe distance.

    This complex is able to resist not only the radio controlled fuses. If necessary, it can be used to jam the frequency at which the enemy is radio. "Mercury-BM" provides protection of personnel and equipment in the territory of 50 hectares.

    The system is mounted on a light armored tracked MT-LB chassis, allowing a fairly high mobility characteristics. Crew make two people, and the deployment of the complex is less than 10 minutes.

    "Murmansk-BN" in Kamchatka

    In Kamchatka separate EW Center received two modern automated complex jamming enemy lines of shortwave "Murmansk-BN." In the stowed state of each of them is a mobile fleet of seven mobile units on automotive platform "KamAZ", the military truck carries the appropriate equipment. The battle unfolded state of the newest complex covers an area of ​​640,000 sq.m. "Chief caliber" "Murmansk" - a powerful antenna, allowing a high probability at specified distances or pluck a radio or disrupt and hinder it. A loss of communication in a real battle, as you know - is the loss of control with all the ensuing negative consequences.

    - "Murmansk-BN" - the arsenal of the XXI century - says the Chief of Staff, 471th of a separate center EW Captain 3rd Rank Roman Nechaev. - The basis of the latest set of advanced mathematical principles laid. By its parameters it surpasses its predecessor in almost several orders of magnitude. For example, the claimed power stations of the old park was 5 kW. The "Murmansk-BN", the figure in some modes of operation can be up to 400 kW.
    Impressive and other characteristics of the new technology, in particular, the range of its effective application. Distance of 3000 km for "Murmansk-BN" is not the limit. This means that in the capable hands of Kamchatka electronic warfare specialists from the place of the complex is able to perform tasks on their territory so far on its outskirts. And if necessary - beyond the 12-mile economic zone - from Chukotka to the islands in the Sea of ​​Japan.

    p.s. In my estimation it turns out, the Navy waits a complex consisting centers EW in Northern and Black Sea fleets, as well as the center of the Pacific Fleet EW OKVS.

    Invisible Warfare: Russia Touts Second-to-None Jamming Equipment

    Russia's most advanced electronic warfare systems, Borisoglebsk-2 and Rtut-BM, add significantly to the country's defense capabilities, according to the Russian news network Zvezda.

    The modernization of the Russian Armed Forces has included the development of electronic warfare, the Russian news network Zvezda reported, referring to the state-of-the-art Borisoglebsk-2 and Rtut-BM systems.

    The Borisoglebsk-2 is a multi-purpose electronic warfare system developed by Russia's United Instrument Manufacturing Corporation for the Russian Armed Forces. Its development started in 2004 and its evaluation testing was completed successfully in December 2010. The system was initially introduced to the Russian army in 2014.

    The Borisoglebsk-2 merges four types of jamming stations into a single system with a single control console which allows the operator to take decisions within seconds. The system is mounted on nine MT-LB armored vehicles and is designed to suppress mobile satellite communications and satellite-based navigation signals.
    The Borisoglebsk-2 electronic warfare system

    Compared to previous jamming units, the Borisoglebsk-2 has a wider range of radio surveillance and suppression, hi-speed frequency scanning, a longer operative range and more precise radio wave emission source spatial localization.

    United Instrument Manufacturing Corporation spokesman Mikhail Artyomov touted the Borisoglebsk-2 as the best electronic warfare system in the world.

    "The system's combat characteristics are not just on a par with the best foreign analogues, they considerably surpass them in terms of a number of parameters. At present, our system is able to jam all modern radio communications," he said.

    The Rtut-BM is another advanced Russian electronic warfare system, which is designed to protect troops and military hardware from artillery rockets and shells equipped with proximity fuses which are programmed to cause them to detonate when they are 3-5 meters from the ground.

    The Rtut-BM affects the proximity of radio-controlled explosive devices, prompting them to explode at higher altitudes in order to keep troops and equipment safe. Also, the system can neutralize radio frequencies employed by the enemy's communications.

    The Rtut-BM is deployed on an MT-LB armored vehicle fitted with a television antenna which provides coverage for an area of about 50 hectares (500,000 square meters) or a semi-sphere with a 400 meter radius. This system requires a crew of two men and it can be ready for jamming within 10 minutes.

    Over the past three years, domestic manufacturers have supplied 22 such systems to the Russian Armed Forces, and 21 more are due to be delivered before the end of this year. As far as the Borisoglebsk-2 is concerned, more than ten such units were supplied to the Russian army between 2014 and 2015.
