Russians are getting better at neutralizing enemy drones, and this could have serious consequences for the United States, because the US military pinned great hopes on them, writes American expert David Aks in his article for publication. The National Interest.

In the US, told about the success of Russia in the field of EW


As an example, he cites a teaching in the Leningrad Region, in the course of which the EW “Silok” complexes worked out the opposition of the conditional enemy's UAV. This ground complex, according to the author, was first introduced in October last year.

American drones thanks to the world's best sensors and software are becoming more sophisticated, including more autonomous. However, they have one weakness - the need to maintain communication with the base, at least in order to send the received information. Russia uses this "weakness" to intercept UAVs. Back in 2011, the Iranian military, with the help of the Russian Avtobaz complex, managed to land a US Air Force drone RQ-170, an expert writes.

He also recalls the experience gained by the Russians in Syria, where they managed to neutralize dozens of drones launched by the militants with the help of EW.

In the summer of 2018, it was reported that the first military-electronic equipment “Silok” complexes were sent to the Central Military District to fight the UAV. The equipment of the complex can automatically detect drones, determine their coordinates and suppress control, communication and telemetry channels at various frequency ranges. The developer of the complex is the company "Constellation".

    Well, the operators of electronic warfare systems have about the same motto as the rocket launchers themselves do not fly and do not give others.
    But seriously, on the issue of electronic warfare systems we are so far the best in the world. And this lag 15 years behind us, the mattresses admit.

      Once graduated from a military school of air defense. Produced in flight form, like all SPRNschiki and Proshniki. When I asked the pilot whether I always answered the opposite. Than in the first seconds he entered into a stupor of the asker.

      For some reason, the championship in the electronic warfare did not contribute to the defense of the IL-20 crew. Apparently, for the effectiveness of the electronic warfare, there is still something to build up or grow. The most important thing is that specialists of the highest qualification are required.

      I want to believe it, but it confuses a wide variety of complexes. It turns out that each of them works in its own range, but this is not good. Wagon, this is probably the ultimate dream.

      Do not rely so much on propaganda. You do not know why they are touting or recognizing the advantages of our electronic warfare. Anglo-Saxons are not so simple to take their words on faith.

      This lag has arisen due to the self-confidence of American politicians and the military. Just twenty years they had no equal. So relaxed. But this gap will narrow rapidly as the Americans begin to work hard. And the element base, unlike us, they have the BEST and OWN! So do not flatter yourself.

    I think the various Russian electronic warfare systems have become a huge hemorrhoids .... because it’s not to track and bomb tribes running through the desert, but everyone is confronted with opposition .....

    In EW we are certainly strong and more than likely ahead of the rest. The main thing is not to rest on our laurels - the process of introducing the latest technologies and technology samples should not only not be interrupted, but intensified in every way. Only this is the key to the effectiveness of this trump card in all future conflicts (and in the prevention thereof)

    Like it or not, an autonomous combat AI to be. Feedback and dependence on sources of information outside the combat platform allows critical interference to complete tasks .. at least GPS, at least confirmation of the use of weapons.

      One "small" problem is allowing the AI ​​to make its own decisions about the use of weapons. This is Pandora's box really!

        Kindergarten-level horror story. I doubt that AI will be given tasks "I don't know where to fly there, I don't know what to bomb". Now the whole problem is only in accurate selection and recognition. As soon as the AI ​​can distinguish a person with a machine gun from a person with a water pipe in their hands (or a shihadmobile from a school bus) with at least 99% probability, they will immediately announce the adoption of such platforms.

          The pipe in the hands strongly resembles a grenade launcher, and the "shihadmobile" is made of everything that drives. There are no fools hanging signs "we are bad" either.
          And 99% probability means that fire will be fired at every hundredth case of a meeting with civilians. And during the flight, over a densely populated area, this can happen ... time.

            If now the size of collateral losses does not stop anyone, then it is foolish to demand this from the AI, for which efficiency and task performance are a priority. About 99% of the application in civilian and densely populated areas - inflate out of flies. Do not interfere with the tasks of a robot policeman and military highly specialized platforms into one vinaigrette, otherwise we will agree on cruise missiles with shame and conscience.

              In this case, you will destroy half the population in 60-70 sorties. Here mathematics is stronger than your estimates.

    Again, the omniscient and omnipresent NI, which frightens the Western man in the street with the terrible power of almost every type of arming of the Russian Armed Forces. After all, all these songs are sung in order to knock out not an extra extra penny for your "beggar" military industrial complex
    And Can someone explain to the uninitiated me how a UAV flying in radio silence mode can be detected by the EW system not to mention determining the coordinates and tracking it. All that the EW system can do is to take a bearing to the radiating target, accompany this bearing until the radiation is turned off and interfere with the target of the receiving devices of the target. The fact that with a certain luck, the EW system can interfere with the data transmission channels and thus disrupt the control of the UAV is understandable. But it is necessary to take into account that the partners also understand this and increasingly rely on the autonomous control of UAVs. Etoh of the operators of the UAV with the joystick is already leaving, although in certain conditions (when acting against the poor barmalei) it is still used.
