Triad-2C communication suppression complex (update)
Reached hands to update information on the complex "Triad-2C", which in the media is called the complex of destruction of communications satellites. In fact, the complex is (I think) rather a satellite communication suppression system in some local region with a radius of up to 100 km. This is purely my assumptions made on the basis of poking a finger into the sky. It’s just that photos of radio engineering systems that, in terms of foreign media (Ukrainian), are issued as systems of the Triad-2C complex, it seems to me that they cannot disable communication equipment of a communication satellite. Well, it does not fit in my head with such opportunities.
Analysis of the topic with the electronic warfare complex "Triad-2C" received a new impetus after the publication of images from the OSCE drone on March 16, 2019, which were made over the territory of the Lugansk People's Republic. Further, it is better to see the photos and the scheme.
From all this you can make several assumptions:
1. The Triad-2C complex is probably undergoing military trials or has already entered the Russian Armed Forces;
2. It is likely that the complex is intended, among other things, to expose the work of satellite transmission channels — the only thing that somehow turns out compactly — I expected to see a separate reconnaissance vehicle and a separate suppression machine, but then these machines were either combined in one external systems can be used.
The intended principle of operation is that interference to the radio satellite channels is hampered by the reception and transmission of information. I think that strategic reconnaissance drones will not frighten them - most likely they keep all the information taken on board or at least buffer information in case of communication failure and interference. But in some situations, the formulation of such interference will be fully justified.
The complex is terribly secret and there is no other information on it so that I may well be mistaken.
