American expert advises Pentagon to fight terrorists drones "in Russian"


As a specialist in UAV technology, Bendett is confident that drones-like attacks that the militants in Hmeymim attempted to carry out attacks will occur much more frequently. And the most effective protection against them is electronic warfare (EW).

Russia is already talking about further enhancing the electronic warfare after the terrorist attack in Syria,
he told National Interest magazine.

The expert also noted that “to track and destroy enemy drones, it is advisable to equip aircraft with electronic warfare devices”, pointing to the example of the Russian video conferencing systems that installed the electronic warfare system on the Orlan-10 multi-purpose drone.

The magazine came to the conclusion that the EW may be a much more economical way to fight the UAV, than the destruction of their expensive missiles, for example, AIM-120.

Recall, on January 6, ten drones were sent to Hamimim and three more to Tartus to carry out a raid. Seven vehicles were destroyed without victims and material damage, the Russian military intercepted control over the remaining six.

      It’s easier for them to throw away expensive ammunition, otherwise it will become difficult to write off and steal billions.

    This grief is an adviser, most likely HIGH. I decided to draw attention to myself. It's all yesterday, to blame, the day before yesterday. Even in tactics, the use of massive UAV strikes, little is added. All requirements for them were developed more than 17 years ago. Now we are witnessing a great development and the rise of this direction. The forum will soon discuss the evacuators of the wounded from the database zone.

      And all the basic requirements of electronic warfare, developed 70 years ago. From the complete destruction of electronic filling and the creation of interference, to the seizure of control. On the cunning well ..... there is always yourself you know what. All these modern UAVs are good only when interacting with all structures of the troops, and not in single attacks against a known, technically better equipped enemy.

    EW is a troublesome business, but necessary, technological and relevant.

    Given that the Americans do not a priori suppose conducting military operations on their territory, corporations producing expensive AIM-120 missiles will be categorically against the introduction of cost-effective means of protection against UAVs, because this will lead to a slimming portfolio of orders. They will pay the right congressman like McCain to lobby for their interest in the decision. And the fact that the wards of the "Papuans" will suffer from drone attacks, for them a second time. The more they suffer, the more their rockets will buy.

    It is strange why EW Mercury was unable to protect the Khmeimim base from mortar shelling.

    The easiest way to muffle or create a signal to the radio signal coming from the operator to the UAV and make the UAV uncontrollable. It is more difficult to select the transmission frequency and take control of yourself (and if the signal is also encoded it will take a lot of time). You can shoot from some kind of anti-aircraft machine gun or automatic guns. But firing at mini UAVs with rockets is not cheap. Although they will print the money to the Junkers.

    And it’s difficult to organize an automatic frequency scanner with interruption or correction of the signal. Just working in a regular observatory (hell knows)))))))))
