Russia’s Radio-Electronic Technologies Group (KRET) has developed and tested onboard defense systems for cruise missiles of various modifications.

The KRET, part of Rostec, has prepared a set of equipment for mounting  on cruise missiles of various types which will render them safe against anti-missile defense systems, Tass reported Friday.

"Moreover, missiles can have any type of a warhead and all of them will be equipped with onboard defense systems," Adviser to the KRET first deputy CEO Vladimir Mikheyev told TASS on Friday.

This defense system has passed all the required trials today, he added. The onboard defense system comprises integrated technical means designed to determine and classify the threat of destruction of the protected object and also to neutralize this threat.
