    On the basis of Il-114-300 can be created a plane of electronic warfare


    MOSCOW, August 28. / TASS /. A combat aviation complex or an electronic warfare aircraft can be created on the basis of a modernized IL-114-300, the IL-114 program director of PJSC "IL" Ivan Kabatov told TASS.

    "Possessing unique flight performance, the aircraft is the optimal platform for the organization of aviation systems for solving a wide range of tasks - from monitoring, patrolling and transport to electronic warfare, reconnaissance and combat use," Kabatov said.

    He noted that RPM "Radar MMS" on the basis of the flying laboratory IL-114LL has accumulated considerable experience in developing and using advanced electronic systems. "The duration of the loitering, low cruising speed, wide temperature range and the possibility of using from unprepared airfields give all grounds for considering this aircraft as a platform for special versions for many years to come," said the program director of IL-114.

    Kabatov also noted that "IL-114-300 has a high appeal for potential government customers in Russia, as it is produced from Russian components."

    In turn, marketing director of PJSC "IL" Tamara Kakushadze reported that on the margins of the last forum "Army-2018" the prospects of future orders for a plane with representatives of federal executive authorities were discussed. Including manufacturers Il-114-300 "clarified the needs of potential customers in special versions of aircraft."

    This looks as amateur article.

    EW could do such things only if the missile or shell use a radar, radio or maybe laser fuze. Artillery shells use a mechanicle fuze if I'm not wrong, and can't be impacted by any radio signal of any sort.



    Guided by definition has electronics. BTW article says:

    KRET" Mercury "saw the salvoes of guns and, acting with high-power interference on the radio-detonators of guided missiles, forced them to explode in the air," the South Military District said in an official statement.

    Mobile groups against UAV

    The development of technology and technology leads to the emergence of new threats on the battlefield and in the rear. In connection with this, modern armies have to create and adopt the necessary products, as well as form completely new units. One of the most serious threats now are unmanned aerial vehicles, and this must be taken into account when developing the army. Taking into account the existing experience, it was decided to create special mobile groups, which will have to deal with unmanned aircraft. Moreover, such units have already shown their skills in practice.

    Currently, several large military exercises are taking place in the Southern Military District, in which parts of various combat arms are involved. Servicemen are practicing skills in all the main ranges of the district and solve tasks to combat the conventional enemy. Together with other units, special mobile EW groups were sent to the test site for the first time, which also had to use their equipment and thereby prevent the actions of the conventional adversary.

    Mobile groups of electronic warfare were formed quite recently. They were assembled in accordance with the order of the commander of the troops of South-East Russia, Colonel-General Alexander Dvornikov. Similar units appeared in all units of the district and are intended to protect troops from unmanned aircraft of the enemy in all its manifestations. In particular, when creating new mobile groups, the experience gained during the operation in Syria was used.

    During the Syrian operation, Russian troops had to face a new threat. Terrorist organizations have repeatedly attempted to attack Russian or Syrian installations using unmanned aerial vehicles. The lightweight UAV is notable for its low cost and ease of use, but can carry a certain combat load. The fight against such attacks presents a certain complexity for "traditional" air defense, and therefore in such situations, electronic warfare means should be used.

    A number of attacks in Syria were repulsed with the help of electronic warfare. At the same time, it became obvious that any opponent could organize such a strike in any area. In this regard, it was decided to create mobile groups of EW, whose task will be to fight enemy drones.

    A few days ago, the press service of the Southern Military District reported on the participation of mobile units in one of the current exercises. Activities with their participation were scheduled for Thursday 30 August. The groups had to go to the area of ​​the Marinovka airfield (Volgograd region) and provide protection to the area from the UAV of the conventional enemy. Together with experts in the electronic warfare, anti-aircraft gunners and signalmen were involved in the exercises.

    On March 30, the press service of the South-East Division published a report on the successful completion of special exercises. According to their legend, the target of the enemy was the Marinovka airfield. To attack the object, the conventional enemy used several UAVs of different types. Flights were carried out at different heights and courses.

    It is reported that mobile EW groups were able to detect in time the flying machines and determine their location. With conditional threats fought in several ways, including with the help of weapons . With the help of the complexes P-934BMV and R-330ZH "Resident", EW units identified, intercepted and suppressed the data channels of the UAV. Due to the suppression of communication, the conventional enemy lost the ability to collect intelligence information and use drone effectively.

    The data on the found objects were transferred from the REB complexes to the anti-aircraft systems. "Tor-M2" and "Pantsir-S1" complexes took target designation from EW systems, after which they performed all the necessary procedures and made a conditional launch of missiles against targets. The enemy's UAVs were conditionally destroyed at ranges of up to 10 km. Another goal, flying at an altitude of 150 m, was struck by the fire of small arms from the ground.

    One of the goals of the exercises was the development of interaction between the units. EW mobile groups not only searched for unmanned vehicles and prevented their effective work, but also transmitted target designation data to other units. First of all, the security and support units at the control points received information about the objectives. Also, the delivery of data to anti-aircraft gunners was carried out for the purpose of fire destruction.

    During the exercises, mobile units of the EW were able to protect the Marinovka airfield from the raid of the UAV of the conventional enemy. With the help of their own equipment, they prevented the effective operation of the apparatus, and adjacent units provided a conditional defeat of air targets. A contingent opponent was unable to break through to his goal and cause damage to it.

    In parallel, other training events are being conducted at other polygons of the Southern Military District, including those involving radio electronic warfare units. Personnel work out skills of detection and suppression of enemy communication channels, collection and processing of intelligence information, etc. In the course of current exercises, almost all the REB complexes used in the units of the South-Eastern Military District are used.

    According to the press service of the South-Eastern Military District, during the recent exercises, the mobile group EW used the complexes P-934BMV and R-330ZH to solve training and combat tasks. It is entirely possible that new equipment is available at the disposal of new units of a similar purpose. With its help, the mobile group can find enemy communication channels and collect information or suppress them with interference.

    According to known data, the P-934BMV product mentioned in the official reports is an interference station from the RB-301B "Borisoglebsk-2" complex. Complexes of the Borisoglebsk family originally represented a deep modernization of older R-330 Mandate systems. Due to the most serious processing of the design and use of new equipment, it was possible to significantly improve the main characteristics and expand the capabilities of the equipment.

    The RB-301B complex was developed from the middle of the 2000s and was adopted in 2013. The complex includes a control station and several interference stations, including the already mentioned P-934BMV. All components of the complex are built on the basis of the unified armored chassis MT-LBU, which provides it with high cross-country capability and mobility. The Borisoglebsk-2 complex has been produced serially for several years and is supplied in part of the ground forces.

    It is known that the means of radio technical reconnaissance of the RB-301B complex are capable of detecting various enemy radio communication channels and other signals. There is a function for locating the source of signals. The presence of several interference stations provides the possibility of highly effective suppression of a wide range of frequencies. As shown by the latest exercises, the means of Borisoglebsk-2 are able to detect and suppress the control lines of unmanned aerial vehicles.

    The "ZHYTEL" automated interference station P-330ZH, also used in the "defense" of the airfield in the Volgograd region, is one of the components of the D-330M1P "Diabazol" complex. The latter represents another version of the modernization of the relatively old "Mandate" with the use of modern equipment. The development of the R-330M1P was carried out during the past decade; The complex entered service in 2008.

    The complex "Diabazol" in its architecture is similar to "Borisoglebsk-2". It includes a control point and a set of automated interference stations, one of which is P-330Zh. Unlike some complexes of the "Mandate" family, the R-330M1P is built on the basis of automobile chassis with unified body-vans. In its capabilities, "Diabazol" is similar to other modern complexes of its class, but it differs by other technical characteristics. In particular, it differs from "Borisoglebsk-2" or other systems in the operating range.

    The use of electronic warfare complexes RB-301B and R-330M1P allows mobile groups to counteract UAVs or other units to detect radio signals from sources at ranges up to several tens of kilometers. Suppression of communication channels of ground equipment is carried out at distances of 20-25 km. With the suppression of communications between aircraft, the range is doubled.

    In the arsenal of the new mobile units of the electronic warfare there are complexes built on the basis of serial chassis. This allows a quick transfer of groups to a given area to cover the necessary facilities. In addition, such a performance does not impose any special requirements on the positions for the deployment of equipment. Preparation of "Diabazol" and "Borisoglebsk-2" complexes requires no more than 30-40 minutes to work. Collapse and transfer of funds in the marital position, too, takes a minimum time.

    The mobility of the complexes provides obvious advantages. In addition, it allows more efficient solution of new tasks. Self-propelled vehicles of mobile groups can move to the specified object in a minimum time and provide its protection in a timely manner from scouts or drone drones.

    The EW complexes transferred to the new mobile groups were initially created as a universal means of influencing the radio communication channels and enemy control. As part of the new units, their role is slightly changed. Now, first of all, they have to search and suppress data transmission lines connecting UAVs and operator panels. As follows from the available information and the results of recent exercises, modern Russian electronic warfare complexes perfectly cope with such tasks. In addition, such systems can provide information to higher commanders or anti-aircraft gunners.

    The widespread use of unmanned aerial vehicles of all classes, which are now available not only to armies, but also to small armed formations, leads to new challenges and threats. It is important that the means to protect against such threats already exist and are in service. Thanks to this, the Russian army is able to organize the protection of objects from UAV relatively quickly and simply. It is enough to form new specialized units and equip them with the required equipment.

    It is possible to increase defense capability not only with the help of new weapons and equipment, but also due to the correct organizational structure of the troops. Recently appeared mobile groups of counteracting UAV are called to solve a new urgent task, directly related to the progress of recent years. In addition, these units have already demonstrated their capabilities in the conditions of the test site.

    ITS FROM MAY 2018

    Interference for the enemy
    The newest Russian electronic warfare complexes will blind enemy aircraft-radars and even satellites

    The troops of electronic warfare (EW) received a multifunctional station-transformer. Mobile complexes "Divnomorie" suppress locators and other on-board radio-electronic systems of aircraft, helicopters and drones. The station also creates powerful interference for "flying radars" - E-3 AWACS, E-2 Hawkeye and E-8 JSTAR. Depending on the goal, the system chooses the type of interference and the method of their setting, so in the troops it was nicknamed "station-transformer." According to experts, the novelty will bring Russian troops REB to a new technological level.

    As "Izvestia" was told to the Defense Ministry, the first complexes of the "Divnomorie" REB will go to the troops this year. They have already passed the test and trial operation. Now the specialists are trained to work on new equipment.

    It is planned that the "Divnomorie" will replace in the troops immediately three REB complexes: "Moscow", "Krasuha-2" and "Krasuha-4". It is noteworthy that these systems began to arrive in parts and units just five years ago, in 2013.

    Divnomorie" is simultaneously a high-tech command post, a radio technical intelligence station and a powerful means of suppression

    The main advantage of "Divnomoria" is full automation. When a target is detected, the system independently analyzes the signal and determines its type, direction and power of radiation. Based on these data, the tactical and technical characteristics of the object are determined. After that, the automation makes up a suppression plan and independently chooses the most effective type of interference. Further, the system affects the enemy radar with powerful noise radiation.

    Electronic dome will close the sky of Syria
    Russia will deploy systems and complexes capable of “blinding” any air violator

    Great interview with a lot of gems like This:

    How do these systems work? For example, an Israeli aircraft is armed and preparing to take off - and ...

    - He still rules on the airfield, and we already have a new target, he has already been assigned an automatic control number in the ACS. Its characteristics have been evaluated, the combat capabilities have already been applied to the electronic map, and the air defense system has stiffened up - waiting for it. If we understand that his goals are unseemly, then we begin an electronic impact: deprive him of communication, navigation, location, control, data transmission, and so on. That is, the enemy plane begins to gradually "blind." If he continues the flight further, then the so-called “friend-foe” system will work - it will request the ownership of the aircraft.

    - And if a stranger, then ...

    - If the "alien", the locator of anti-aircraft missile systems will take him to the accompaniment. The warning system for the F-16 will let the pilot know that he is on the fly. After a repeated, more persistent warning of entering the danger zone, he will block all control systems. If and then the intentions to continue threatening actions remain - the use of weapons on them is already possible.

    Russia has tested systems for satellite suppression

    https://www.interfax.ru/russia/545992
    Moscow. 27th October. INTERFAX.RU - Russia has tested systems that can disable enemy communications satellites, an informed Interfax spokesman said in the military-industrial complex.

    “The Tirada-2C complex has already passed tests, the state commission gave its recommendations,” he said, without specifying details.

    According to him, the complex will be managed with the help of specialist operators.

    In January 2018, the interlocutor of Interfax reported that in the near future the Russian military could get systems that could disable the enemy’s communications satellites. According to him, one of the projects is Tirada-2, the development work was started back in 2001. The interlocutor of the agency noted then that this complex would be able to disable communication satellites from the ground. The complex operates by electronic jamming, he said.

    In August, a contract was signed publicly at the Army 2018 forum for the supply of the newest super-power EW complex to the Russian Defense Ministry to suppress Tirada-2.3 satellite communications. According to the military, the delivery of new generation interference stations will begin this year. Contractor - Vladimirsky plant "Electropribor".

    The fact that Russia is working on weapons for the suppression of satellites, November 30 last year, said Deputy Head of Federal State Budgetary Institution "46 Central Research Institute" Oleg Achasov.

    In particular, he announced the development of a shock anti-satellite complex and a mobile complex of radio electronic destruction of communication satellites Tirada-2C.

    Against what ? Ships ? It would need the ship to turn its radars on. If it came to just launch cruise missiles, you won't see it.

    The new version of the Kh-31P has a range of 270km. A grund based version should reach a range of 100 - 150km. So every air defence or artillery radar of the enemy close to the front line would be in range.

    A normal EW unit has one company of ELINT/SIGINT and two to three copmpanies with jammers (different models). Now add a company with 4 to 8 vehicles fitted with 6 to 8 ARM´s. If the enemy switches on his counter-battery radar to find your artillery systems it will be found by the SIGINT unit and can be instantly engaged by missiles. As I said, no need to call in the air force.

    Anti radar is the role of the air force. The best tool would be mi-28 or a group of ansat-2RC with atgm. Kh-31 are pretty expensive and the artillery radars are very mobile so once they detect the kh-31 they can turn off radar and go away. You can found some numbers of how many kh-31 different countries bought, they are not huge. Russia included.

    North vietnamies and soviet advisers found tactics to counter US ARMs pretty quickly.

    Moreover ELINT on the ground will have hard time finding a radar 150km away since radar horizon applies for them too.

    They need small ELINT aircraft or choppers with attack helicopters and more su-25 type jets.

    What they could do is use future hermes missile instead. They have rumors of a ground launched version with 100km so a bigger version could reach 150km. With a small passive radar in the nose it could work.

    Kh-31PD has range 250km but only airborne. No instances of Kh-31 are ground based. IMHO no need to build yet another expensive modification if you can use drone as platform AA missiles to do same job..

    A normal EW unit has one company of ELINT/SIGINT and two to three copmpanies with jammers (different models). Now add a company with 4 to 8 vehicles fitted with 6 to 8 ARM´s. If the enemy switches on his counter-battery radar to find your artillery systems it will be found by the SIGINT unit and can be instantly engaged by missiles. As I said, no need to call in the air force.

    If 100 km range is the max range than a Koalitsya emp shell (which is coming in to service) will get you 70% there (70 km max range), equip the shell with a glide kit and you could probably stretch the range to 100km, and should be cheaper than a ground launched Kh-31P and harder to hit. Better yet, you can get the compact EMP generators (the size of dept. store microwave appliances) that they developed more than a decade ago, and stick quite a few of them (in a cluster, or one large EMP generator) in a 300 mm Smerch/Tornado-S rocket. With the Smerch rocket you can get a 90 km max range, while the Tornado-S rocket will have 120, 150, and eventually 200 km max range rockets, all of which should be cheaper solutions with very little development cycles.

    Your idea with Hermes is a good compromise, Isos.

    Also I would like to see a dedicated EW version of the Il-112V with ARM´s. Or a Mi-8 fitted with the new Kh-36P missile which is in development.
