Press: To combat Russian air defense systems in the United States are testing electronic warfare equipment on an unmanned platform

28

The American military has long been preoccupied with the question of how to effectively jam the air defense of the RF Armed Forces. Therefore, to combat Russian air defense systems in the United States, they are testing electronic warfare equipment on an unmanned platform.


The Ukrainian edition of Defense Express writes about this, for some reason asserting that in its developments the defense industry of the United States takes into account the experience of the "war of Russia against Ukraine."

The press reports that the development of new weapons to counter the Armed Forces of Russia and China will be one of the main tasks of the experimental EDGE 21 exercises, which are scheduled for May. In the course of their conduct, the US military will use a number of technological innovations, including new models of electronic warfare systems installed on unmanned platforms.

The use of new electronic warfare systems, according to the American organizers of these exercises, “will dramatically increase the army's ability to detect and disrupt communications systems, data transmission and control of enemy forces, and will also“ blind ”its anti-aircraft defense so that a“ friendly ”aircraft can“ slip ”for completing the assignment. In other words, they are capable of countering Russian and Chinese air defense systems.

Now in the United States, they are urgently creating electronic warfare equipment to counter Russia and China. The armies, unlike, for example, the Afghan armed formations, largely rely on means of secure communications, automatic control of units and weapons, radar systems for various purposes, the work of which the American military intends to identify, analyze and suppress.

Therefore, in May, the EDGE 21 exercise will first use the electronic warfare systems developed by Lockheed Martin for air platforms. Multifunctional electronic warfare system Multi-Function Electronic Warfare (MFEW) Air is intended for installation primarily on unmanned aerial vehicles.

    Is the mythical battle of Kruty taken into account or what?
    The American military has long been preoccupied with the question of how to effectively jam the air defense of the RF Armed Forces. Therefore, to combat Russian air defense systems in the United States, they are testing electronic warfare equipment on an unmanned platform.

    They are trying to create an analogue of Leer-3.

      From an interview with the commander of the Armenian Special Forces, Azerbaijan effectively used electronic warfare systems to search for Armenian soldiers and militias using cell phone signals.

        Well, electronic warfare on a UAV ...

        And just a few months ago, some of the opponents insisted that such a system impossible in principledue to its high energy consumption.

        Let's see what the Americans do, and quietly count on the fact that in Russia, yawning, they don't catch flies.

          Electronic warfare was naturally on UAVs from the Turks similar systems in the series, from Israel from the 80s, from the United States as part of the brigades I wrote below.

          Possible difference in efficiency. It's one thing to "jam" a single phone, another - a cellular station, the third - to leave the entire area of ​​the database without any wireless connection. It is quite capable of jamming the cellular station of the UAV, but the ability of the air defense system to "blind" (as they write) raises strong doubts in me. I'm not even talking about the ability to withstand countermeasures of electronic warfare systems, the energy potential of the UAV and the ground station of electronic warfare will not be comparable.

          What's the difference on what to place the equipment, it works in automatic mode. It detects the means of radiation, automatically tunes in to their frequency and clogs it. Another thing is how powerful the signal will be.

        Back in the 90s, all the lads going to the arrow clearly knew - it is necessary not only to turn off the mobile, but also to pull out the battery. And being in the battle zone with smart turned on nowadays is generally a real application for the Darwin Prize.

    For info:

    in the "heavy" and "light" brigades, the forces and means of electronic warfare are represented by two RER and electronic warfare stations AN / MLQ-40 (V) 1 Prophet ("Prophet") and four UAVs of the RQ-7 Shadow 200 type. Organizationally, the above means are included in the military intelligence company of the battalion of special forces.
    In the mechanized brigade "Stryker" forces and means of electronic warfare are included in the company of electronic intelligence and electronic warfare of the reconnaissance battalion. In total, the company has three AN / MLQ-40 (V) 1 Prophet RER detection stations and one RQ-7 Shadow 200 tactical reconnaissance UAV complex (four reconnaissance UAVs).
    in the interests of the brigades of the US ground forces, an autonomous system of RRTR and electronic warfare WolfPack ("Wolfpack") was developed. It is designed to conduct radio and radio-technical reconnaissance, electronic suppression of radio-electronic means, control and communication systems of the enemy's tactical echelon and to protect their own radio electronic means from similar influences.
    The army aviation brigade includes the "Quick Fix-2" complex, equipped with four radio reconnaissance helicopters and a REP EUN-60C, designed to detect, recognize, determine the coordinates of emitting means in the operational-tactical control link and jam radio communication lines.
    The most effective means of obtaining information about the enemy's command and control systems in order to prepare and conduct information operations in the theater of operations at the level of the "army corps" and above is the mobile automated complex AN / TSQ-152 (V) "Enhanced Trackwolf".
    A special role in information operations with the participation of ground forces and the Air Force is assigned to the ES-130N Compass Call, a specialized jammer for enemy communications and control systems, operating from the so-called "safe zones" or loitering area.

    No one hopes and does not cherish that the Americans are not learning to overcome the Russian air defense. They are learning and improving. Everyone remembers well their beginning of the first Gulf War against Iraq in the late 80s. There, the Americans in a complex of what only applied to the Iraqis.

    Quite a sensible decision, once the UAVs have been worked out and the RB containers have been in use for a long time. It is also possible to cut a rocket with a rib filling to counteract the oncoming swarm.

              US, WE, the concept is too broad and does not show who we are in the country and who they are.
              They, the ruling and the resources that have taken all, have their own desires that do not overlap with the desires of those who we are. And with the country they do not personify themselves !!! They have picked up a lot of straws / greens where !!! And where is their country now, their side?

                I do not harbor illusions about the political and bureaucratic scum (it only confirms the rarest exceptions to the rule), and everywhere, I had the opportunity to wander around the world and make sure)))) But personally, Putin and the closest circle already personify - maybe against their will, but they are no longer traveling and prospects for outside of Russia are limited by the choice - like Saddam or like Muammar. So they are vitally interested in preserving a sovereign Russia. Well, it will come in handy - you cannot build an economy on guest workers, so you have to feed (unlike the liberda, which has long been embracing bureaucrats on the beaches of Miami, etc. I don’t go there because of this, I’ve lost the habit in the states so that they look at me like shit, immediately pulls to trample on my insolent face. ))) And these do not know otherwise. And the children do not know how to do them, and even the slaves behave the same way out of habit. There, whole residential complexes of high-rise buildings with Russian-speaking bureaucrats and servants are filled. Not business - bureaucrats. This is how the kamunyak had to invest in sweat and blood to steal everything to groundwater for 30 years and still have not optimized ?????? But this is not even the tip of the iceberg - the system is built in such a way that the lion's share of nishtyaks goes to the owners.
