Electromagnetic weapons tested in Syria

Russian military conducts electromagnetic testing in Syria weaponsused against drones and developed by private companies.


It is reported mil.today with reference to the director of the manufacturer. The publication states that testing of such devices began about a month ago.

Electromagnetic weapons tested in Syria

Russian electromagnetic gun "Stupor"


As far as I know, such systems, specially designed to combat drones, had not been used in combat conditions before. Manufacturers willingly provide our military with operational samples, they shoot at militant UAVs. In turn, we get feedback, statistics and other interesting data.
- quotes his words online resource.

The director noted that despite the low cost, the drones of terrorists can cause serious damage - such as undermining the Syrian army’s ammunition depot at Deir ez-Zor stadium. In addition, these drones were used to adjust the fire and gather information. Now militants drones will not be able to operate near important sites.

The antidronic systems used are effective against light UAVs weighing up to 200 kilograms. To counter heavy drones, other means may be required.
- considers another expert Alexander Sakalsky.

The information obtained as a result of the use of anti-drone systems in Syria is used by Russian manufacturers of unmanned aerial vehicles. This will improve the resistance to interference of domestic-made drones, reports "RG-Sil"

    And this is true. All that can be experienced in real combat conditions ..

      On drones, it’s more efficient to hit with a shotgun, not a hunting one, of course. But then what is EW for? Or does EMO spend less charge per pulse?
      Can anyone explain something on this topic at a practical level?

        A shotgun is effective at 40-50 meters maximum. And if the UAV circling 300 meters? Yes, you have to get there. And EMR emitters - where I pointed there and got .....

          and power loss is inversely proportional to the square of the distance.
          and all "combat" schemes (millitary class or space (if money is not a pity) are protected from EMP
          increased requirements for reliability (both of the crystal and of the case), resistance to vibration and overload, humidity, temperature range - much wider, since military equipment and -40С should work, and when heated to 100С.

          Then - resistance to the damaging factors of a nuclear explosion - EMP, a large instantaneous dose of gamma / neutron radiation. Normal operation at the time of the explosion may not be possible, but at least the device should not be irreversibly damaged.

          - less mass (and the device itself and the "warhead" (the photon does not weigh anything)
          no recoil
          - "warhead" instantly (on the scale of the planet Earth) is delivered to the target
          -can be recharged in the field / in flight

            Here, not everything is so magnificent, in the sense of protection from EMP. You know, once I needed a camera to test pagers (in the shaggy 90s) after tuning to the frequency of our company. To protect against the interference of your transmitters, a simple crutch is not enough at all ... The camera was a box with a wall thickness of about 10 mm and several layers of metals (soft magnetic + silvering like). It was worth the money, but it defended well. What I’m leading to - you can fully protect against EMR, but the mass of protection will be such that nothing remains on the payload .... Because such "guns" make sense. That's true their effectiveness at distances of more than 300 m - not sure. There is no data.

        So far - they are only training, adjusting, sniffing ... Why is it bad - simultaneous testing in practice?
        And the idea, most likely, is intended against future unmanned heavy vehicles ...
        After some time, prevent the technique from defeating a person on the battlefield ... Somehow, probably ...

          For an experiment with a scooter, oversized zatzas would not hurt to "insert a piston." If you want to experiment, put the wound up scooter and “shoot” it from different distances. Why substitute a person for radiation.

    Usually such a text should be accompanied by the message that with the help of this equipment, already ... twenty drones have been shot down. If there is no such message, then I apologize for the not modest question, what have these weapons been tested for a month already? request

        These are not drones, but judging by the fact that no test testers were reported, it is not yet. hi

      I do not think that UAVs in Syria swarm like flies, and you can immediately find a suitable target in any place and test the unit. Moreover, besides weight, there are certainly limitations on distance (at least, if we proceed from the laws of physics, they should be).

    That's what Syria is good for - everything can be experienced in combat conditions. It is good that Shoigu gave the command to test everything there.

    What would the EM emitter hit a drone, it should be:
    - to detect;
    - to identify;
    - determine the distance and distance of defeat;
    - aim (to do it with an optical sight - it is very difficult, the drone does not hang in place, if the operator is not a burdock), okay, if it's a day, and if visibility is limited, it is impossible;

    This should deal with serious organizations - the developers of air defense.
    Because an automated detection and targeting system is required.
