Russia’s Central Military District developed and tested a new method of jamming enemy aircraft using three different types of ground-based electronic counter-measures systems on Monday.
The new method allows electronic warfare specialists to create "vacuum" space shielded from the impacts of drones, airborne radars, radio-controlled high-explosive munitions and cruise missiles, according to a statement released by the district’s press office.
"The experiment involved unmanned aerial vehicles, communications systems, dummy munitions and aircraft," the press office was cited by TASS as saying.
The servicemen used the Borisoglebsk [electronic counter-measures] system to conduct radio-electronic reconnaissance. By penetrating the channels of communications systems’ control, they created interference in the operation of ground and airborne radio communications employed by a notional enemy.
The teams of the Krasukha [electronic counter-measures] system suppressed the signal of an onboard radar installed on an aircraft and also the radio channels of controlling unmanned aerial vehicles. The activation of the Zhitel hardware made it possible to shut out satellite communications equipment, navigation and cellular communications systems within a radius of 30 km.
