    Ready the first three air recognition and radio jamming aircrafts Il-22PP 'Porubschik "

    As reported on October 26, 2016 in a press release of PJSC "United Aircraft Corporation", in a single day of the military of acceptance to the Ministry of Defense was delivered prototype for special purposes based on the Il-18.

    VM Myasishcheva based on the Il-18 aircraft built jammer and passing intelligence Il-22PP 'Porubschik ".



    The main feature of the complex is the frequency selectivity, which ensures the combat readiness of the domestic radio-electronic systems.

    The equipment of the complex allows to deal effectively with the aircraft airborne early warning and control, air defense systems, as well as manned and unmanned aircraft.

    As part held October 21, 2016 a single day of military acceptance Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation Sergey Shoigu, the managing director of the Experimental Machine-Building Plant named. VM Myasishcheva Alexander Gorbunov was reported on the completion of state testing prototype aircraft, with the recommendation of adopting it VKS Russia.

    Russian military units get cutting-edge electronic warfare systems

    The Krasukha-4 electronic warfare system is intended for countering an adversary’s radars of the strike and reconnaissance, unmanned aircraft and drones

    MOSCOW, December 19 /TASS/. Russia’s Western Military District has received about 10 state-of-the-art electronic warfare systems, including the Krasukha-4 broadband multifunctional jamming stations, Igor Migunov, the District’s press service chief, told journalists on Monday.

    "About 10 brand-new electronic warfare systems have put into service with the military units of the Western Military District as part of the 2016 state defense order. They include several Krasukha-4 mobile VHF/UHF jammers," Migunov went on to say.

    According to him, experts on electronic warfare systems are going to test the new systems during field exercises in January.

    The Krasukha-4 electronic warfare system is intended for countering an adversary’s radars of the strike and reconnaissance, unmanned aircraft and drones. The capacities of a broadband interference station make it possible to effectively combat against all modern radar stations, which are used on modern aircraft.

    I wonder if that means Russia can/will make a Growler version of Su-34?
    It has seemed odd to me that they don't appear to have any kind of Growler equivalent dunno

    Edit: or is that just because Russias' tactics assume the defensive posture where they will be operating within range of ground EW?

    There were only 10 or so Su-24MPs built, and from what we know none are operational atm. Tu-22MR only 10-12 were converted, again its doubtful any are in service. Even if they were, none of the two has exactly the role that Growlers are doing and are more of ELINT platforms than anything else.

    Tu-16 Elka would be something similar in terms of role to Growlers, but those are goners for 25 years now basically.

    Perhaps if Russia really was the aggressive monster the west likes to make it out to be it would have as many growlers and other aircraft to defeat air defence networks and murder people and change governments by force as the west does... I wonder therefore if that were the case if the west would have less of those types or even more than they currently do...

    They don't really need them... NATO air defense is totally obsolete and under developped. Lonely patriots can be targeted easily by a new fighter like Su-30 or even Su-25T (a special pod for detecting radar is used for sead mission connected to Kh-25mlu and kh-58U) out of range of the missile. The RWR on fighters and the electronic pods used in Russia would be enough to find them too. Most of their radars are civil radars ...

    USA needs better SEAD and growlers because the Russian and chinese airdefences are connected and if they found a lonely S-300 it will be probably defended by some pantsir tor and Buk which have their radars turned off, waiting the order of the command post to atack once a plane is in their range.

    Russian anti-drone device STUPOR



    The first Russian anti-drone, serially produced since 2016 at the Moscow enterprise LLC "Locating Workshop." Designed to suppress remotely controlled aircraft, as well as drones, located on the ground and water surface. Transportation and application is carried out by one person, special skills and experience is not required. The suppression complex is applied up to the maximum range of the drone's visibility by the operator (500 m). The principle of the electromagnetic and optical-electronic suppression complex is based on interrupting the operation of control channels, data transmission and navigation. In addition, the complex is equipped with a laser emitter of visible range, which allows to partially or completely disorganize the process of video filming, which is conducted from the drone. (In case of coincidence of the central area of ​​video shooting with the direction to the operator). The result of the impact of this anti-drone is the disruption of the flight task, the termination of control of the operator, navigation disorientation and disruption of the survey. As a consequence, the UAV (drone) stops the route (loses control), returns to the starting point of the route or lands in a safe mode at the scene of the impact (the variant of the drone's behavior depends on the model, the availability of the flight task). The Drone restores its operation ability by stopping the suppression and (or) its own reboot.

    Electronic Warfare Chief Interviewed

    Russia’s Chief of EW Troops, General-Major Yuriy Lastochkin gave an interview to Krasnaya zvezda in April for the Day of the Electronic Warfare Specialist. His remarks make interesting reading on the direction of Russian EW. The interview was subsequently carried by other media outlets, most recently by VPK.
    General-Major Lastochkin

    General-Major Lastochkin

    Asked what areas of EW are most critical today, Lastochkin replied:

    “The introduction of modern electronic technologies in the command and control systems of forces and means of the armed forces of leading foreign countries is a component part of realizing the prompt global strike concept. This, adopted in the U.S. Armed Forces as a Doctrine of conducting combat actions in a unified information space, substantially increases the level of threat to the military security of the Russian Federation, and fundamentally changes the character and content of armed struggle.”

    “The increase in the role of EW is determined by the very mission of disorganizing the command and control of enemy troops and weapons by means of electronic defeat. We have to recognize distinctly that a new realm of confrontation has appeared — the information-telecommunications space. The spectrum of missions of EW Troops is broadening significantly. The effect of using developmental EW means is comparable to defeat by precision fire. Conceptual documents approved by the RF President in the realm of electronic warfare aim for this. The country’s military-political leadership attaches great significance to the improvement of EW systems as one of the most important elements of guaranteeing national security. Today electronic warfare is a most complex intellectual-technical component, particularly in hybrid conflicts. This in turn requires the development of principally new means capable of neutralizing the enemy’s technological and information advantage.”

    The chief described Russia’s EW forces:

    “Our troops are designated for the electronic defeat of enemy targets and systematic control of measures to counter technical reconnaissance means, and electronic defense of our own troops. They consist of command and control organs, formations [brigades], military units [regiments] and sub-units [battalions, companies] of various subordination. EW forces and means are part of the strategic system of radio jamming, the Unified System of Systematic Technical Control (KTK¹), and the array of EW units of military districts, large formations [armies] and formations [divisions, brigades] of the services and branches of the RF Armed Forces.”

    “At present, the main forces and means are concentrated in the Ground Troops, Aerospace Forces and Navy, and the component inter-service groupings of military districts. In the VDV, we’ve established EW sub-units in assault divisions. In the RVSN, there are KTK sub-units for every missile army, division, and testing ground. Since 2014, the forces and means of radio jamming in the districts have carried out duty missions.”

    What the priority directions for development of EW systems?

    “The improvement of EW equipment needs to be balanced. There is a traditional approach. It suggests broadening the list of targets countered, cutting the types of EW means, unification, increasing protection against precision weapons, mobility and modernization potential. In the innovation plan, I would single out five directions:

    • deployment of controlled fields of radio suppression on enemy territory on the basis of unified small dimension reconnaissance and jamming modules delivered by UAVs;

    • creation of defeat means with powerful electromagnetic radiation on the basis of the employment of specialized munitions and mobile systems;

    • development of programmable equipment for action on highly-organized command and control systems by destroying the accessibility, integrity, and confidentiality of information;

    • introduction of means of imitating a false electronic situation and disinforming the enemy’s system of troop command and control and weaponry;

    • increasing the level of information security of organs (points) of EW command and control, improving decisionmaking support algorithms through the unified circuit of command and control of forces and means.”


    Lastochkin mentioned that Zaslon-REB [Barrier-EW] entered state acceptance testing last year. It seems to be some kind of COMSEC system designed to “block all possible channels for leaking confidential information and establish an ‘impenetrable information dome’ over Russian Defense Ministry facilities.”

    Russian EW exercises, he said, have doubled during the past four years. “Electron-2016” exercise was the first strategic level drill for EW Troops since 1979. They used this training to experiment with new equipment, and develop procedures and tactics.

    Asked about countering enemy UAVs, Lastochkin said EW is the only effective means against small unmanned aircraft.

    He indicated that a “situation center” has been established in the Directorate of the Chief of EW Troops. It links EW formations [brigades] to their units in the field. He looks forward to a system that presents Russia’s operational and electronic situation in a “single information space.”

    Lastochkin claimed Western sanctions have had only a minimal effect on equipping Russia’s EW units, and he expects to have 70 percent modern systems by 2020. Besides Sozvezdiye and KRET, STTs — a UAV developer — works closely with the EW Troops, according to their chief.

    He told his interviewer that the EW Troops have tested 30 different types of equipment during the past three years. He intends to make “serious investments in modernizing the experimental-testing base.”

    In conclusion, General-Major Lastochkin summarized the goal of Russian EW:

    “The entire system of measures of organizational development of EW Troops will substantially increase their contribution to winning superiority in command and control, and in employing weapons. The volume of effectively fulfilled missions in various strategic directions will grow by two – two and a half times and by 2020 will reach 85 percent. This in turn will become the basis of an effective air-ground EW system, capable of neutralizing the enemy’s technological advantage in the aerospace sphere and the information-telecommunications space.”

    Complex detection of UAVs and violators using TV and FM signals

    As reported on June 9, 2017, JSC "Russian Electronics" (part of the State Corporation Rostek), it created a passive coherent location complex (PCL), designed to covertly detect moving air, ground and surface targets in the security zone of critical facilities.

    The new complex can be used as a perimeter security system for objects, air traffic services, a ship traffic control system. It provides a circular view, allows you to detect targets, determine their coordinates within a radius of up to 100 km, perform trajectory tracking of targets and display information on the operator's monitor, and take action against unauthorized intrusion. Due to the use of the existing digital TV signal and FM radio broadcasting, the PCL does not require the presence of its own transmitter.


    The base segment of the antenna system of the passive coherent location development complex of JSC "Russian Electronics" (c) the press service of JSC "Russian Electronics"

    The principle of the complex is based on the reflection of moving objects of TV and FM signals from radio transmitting centers. This feature makes it possible to apply the complex where it is difficult to use classical radar systems. In particular, it provides the possibility of detecting small-sized targets, including drones, at extremely low altitudes in populated areas.

    As part of the integrated "RosElectronics" system is developing the system "Research Institute" Vector ". At the moment, an experimental station has been developed, which has proved its effectiveness. It has 15 antennas, one of which is aimed at the source of radiation, and the others perceive the reflected signal from aircraft, ships, cars and even people. For example, the range of detection UAV - 10 km, cars and people at a distance of less than 20 km, ships - 80 km.

    The complex includes an antenna system, a device for receiving and processing signals, a complex of computer facilities with special software. In addition, it can be equipped with video monitoring and other additional equipment to protect the object. The complex has no harmful effect on people and the environment, has low energy consumption and low operating costs. Small dimensions allow the release of a mobile version of the complex.

    The lock complex can be used to protect critical facilities, including chemical factories, defense enterprises, power stations, airports, mines, and also to ensure the safety of water areas and large areas.


    The bmpd comment. More detailed information about the complex on the developer's site is Walter Integration LLC (St. Petersburg), which operates under the JSC Vector Research Institute. Also material.

    In the Western Military District formed the first company to fight

    As reported on October 28, 2017 by the press service of the Western Military District, the first permanent tactical unit to combat unmanned aircraft was created on the basis of a separate radio electronic warfare unit (EW) of the Western Military District (ZVO) stationed on the territory of the Kursk region [16th separate brigade electronic warfare. - bmpd].



    The company is based on contract servicemen, sergeants and officers - specialists for combating drones with the help of EW assets.

    "In its way, this is a unique unit," said Colonel Alexander Vostrikov, commander of the REB ZVO connection. - Here are the best representatives of their profession. All servicemen have unique professional skills and technical knowledge in the field of electronic warfare. Work on the training of servicemen of this unit is carried out according to a program that is broader than the training periods for the training of line units and, in essence, their level and periodicity of classes now go to a qualitative level of training comparable in intensity to the training of special purpose units. They are "special forces of electronic warfare".

    To effectively work out practical tasks, various types of targets are used to combat various types of UAVs, including military drones that have worked out their term and special flying targets.

    In total, in the formations and military units of the Air Defense Forces, about 20 special units have been created to deal with drones. They also include air defense, aviation and sniper units of the air defense system. They are created at the time of large-scale exercises and development of special combat training tasks.

    Interesting article and comments with current US view on EW in Syria. Also posted in Russia in Syria thread.

    The Compass Call is supposed to be one of America’s foremost electronic warfare weapons, but the EC-130s flying near Syria are being attacked and disabled “in the most aggressive EW environment on the planet,” the head of Special Operations Command said here today.

    “Right now in Syria we are operating in the most aggressive EW environment on the planet from our adversaries. They are testing us everyday, knocking our communications down, disabling our EC-130s, etcetera,” Gen. Raymond Thomas told an audience of some 2,000 intelligence professionals.
