Airborne will protect armored vehicles with the help of "Lesochka"

The creation of electronic warfare equipment - EW - today is a fairly dynamically developing area in the military-industrial complex. At the same time in the use of such systems there was a real qualitative leap. The use of radio navigation systems, radio communications and radio intelligence has become widespread. The introduction of new technologies allows you to organize the interaction of spatially scattered diverse groups of troops in order to achieve the best effect of their use. Under these conditions, the use of EW tools becomes important. Without modern means of electronic warfare it is impossible to achieve superiority over the enemy, which can be achieved by disorganizing its telecommunication and information management systems. Thus, the effective use of EW techniques and equipment significantly influences the outcome of modern combat.

In addition, EW facilities protect fighters from various radio-controlled land mines and mines. By the end of 2013, the Russian paratroopers will receive about 150 sets of Lesothok broadband mobile jamming generators, they will be transferred to the Tula and Novorossiysk formations, as well as the airborne forces special unit. These complexes are used to protect the soldiers and officers from radio-controlled explosive devices, reports RIA News with reference to the lieutenant colonel of the Airborne Forces Evgenia Meshkov. The EW Lesochek kits will be installed on automotive and armored vehicles of Russian paratroopers. The new EW equipment is notable for its increased jamming power and greater range of suppression. In January, 2013, the information appeared that the airborne unit received the first 40 of such complexes.

“EW systems installed on armored vehicles and automobiles will allow elite military personnel to no longer fear various radio-controlled explosive devices in areas where combat missions are performed,” a representative of the Russian Defense Ministry told reporters. At the same time, such technical characteristics of the Lesochek complex are not published. It is reported that it has a wider working range in 3 times, often, compared to the electronic suppression complexes that are used today in the military. In addition, the "Lesochka" was implemented a new technology to create interference, while the complex can be used not only to protect military vehicles, but also to protect individual soldiers, it can be carried with them in a backpack.

Airborne will protect armored vehicles with the help of "Lesochka"

The Lesochek complex is a small-sized interference generator that effectively protects military personnel both on the move and while stationary. The EW Lesochek complex without any problems can be installed on a car, armored vehicles, and also placed in a backpack or carrying case for free carrying. In addition to this complex in the summer of 2012, Russian paratroopers also received new MECTK-1A electronic judging systems Judoka and Infauna. The complex "Infauna" is designed to protect personnel and military equipment from radio-controlled mine explosive devices and small weapons close combat, as well as the effective suppression of enemy radio communications.

The complex “Judoka” is a mobile automated solution for conducting radio, radio engineering and special monitoring of the effectiveness of information protection, as well as the assessment of the electromagnetic environment. This complex can easily determine the location and measure the parameters of the anti-ballistic missile defense (ABM) of the enemy, his electronic devices, as well as find and block technical channels for leakage of important information at military sites. In total, up to 2020, the Russian budget plans to allocate 2,6 trillion to re-equip units of the Ground Forces and Airborne Forces with new equipment. rubles. Part of this amount will go to the acquisition of modern EW systems.

One of the leading Russian enterprises working in the field of development of such complexes is Concern Constellation. The nomenclature of EW complexes, systems and facilities, which were created in the Voronezh concern in the last 5 years, covers all the main directions of this subject. In total, the company developed more than 10 new types of EW equipment, some of which are not inferior to foreign analogues in terms of their technical characteristics, and some simply do not have such analogues.

Complex EW "Infauna"

The equipment developed by the concern includes systems and special means of effective real-time impact on the infocommunication and electronic control systems of the enemy. Today, the concern Sozvezdiye effectively and equally develops the technologies for developing all the basic elements of electronic warfare systems and systems — generating and emitting interference, radio intelligence, control and communication, as well as software. From the creation of separate funds, the concern gradually moved to the development of multi-purpose EW complexes that are able to solve a very wide range of tasks in dealing with various enemy control systems.

Currently, the concern also supplies Infauna multifunctional electronic systems to the Russian Armed Forces. This is a new, modern complex, which allows you to organize group protection against the destruction of radio-controlled mine-explosive devices, as well as against targeted fire melee weapons. In terms of tactical and technical parameters and a set of implemented functions, according to the capabilities of a comprehensive solution for protecting personnel and combat equipment, Infauna today has no foreign analogues.

Special attention concern "Constellation" devotes to the development and improvement of means of protection of personnel of the Russian army and
vehicle armored vehicles from destruction by radio-controlled mine-explosive devices. This is a very important issue for the Russian armed forces. One of the instruments created in this direction is the Lesothok small-sized transmitter of interference. The tactical and technical characteristics of this complex make it possible to effectively use it also on the railway to protect the trains. Complexes "Infauna" and "Lesochek" today are of current use not only in the army, but also during counter-terrorist operations.

At the same time, the “Constellation” concern is well aware of the fact that without training the personnel of the calculations it is impossible to effectively use complex equipment and technical devices. It was for this purpose that the Magny-REB universal computer simulator was developed for the development of new types of equipment by personnel of EW units. This simulator allows combat crews to acquire the necessary skills to work on all types of EW equipment, providing a training process, ranging from the unit commander to the station operator. At the same time, the learning process, working out the coherence of actions is realized in the mode of imitation of various radio-electronic conditions.

Currently, Constellation is conducting research, including analyzing the experience of all recent major and minor military conflicts, tactics and strategies for the use of EW tools. At the same time, the engineers of the concern work closely with the military, so specialists can quickly comprehend the essence of the problems and respond to the new needs of Russian security forces.

    Something seems to me that about "Lesochka" I heard about half a year ago.
    And I heard that our electronic warfare systems are behind the US ones. Interestingly, with the help of this "Lesochka" the gap will narrow?
    Well, "Autobase" were able to land a Shtatovsky drone? -Could.

      The manufacturer of Avtobaza, NPO Kvant, which is part of the Radioelectronic Technologies concern (as I understand the Russian Technologies division). My concern is that the "Constellation" has already been marked by an unclaimed ESU TK. Moreover, the tramp has been going on for many years. Therefore, doubts arise about the qualities and quality of this device for the Airborne Forces. Maybe it would be worth entrusting to do such things on a competitive basis to at least two manufacturers, choosing the best, and not what happens at the output of one (and maybe not the best)?

      Avtobaza is not capable of not only landing a UAV, but also somehow affecting the operation of its equipment, Avtobaza is a large scanning receiver.

      The name is bullshit, the same as "Berezhok", "Bakhcha", "Rostock" and "Tray". Afftrams of these creations should give a kick from work without severance pay. With these names, it remains to name some new submarine as “Pink Squirrels”, and the tank as “Flower”, and the potential enemy then definitely ** laughs and becomes unworkable.

        tank - "Flower"

        Carnation, Acacia, Hyacinth, Peony, Tulip are not tanks of course, but the NATO people have not caused laughter from the moment they were taken into service.
        Do you seem to like the Amerian approach to names? Marauder, Imposter, Eagle grave digger ...

    The main thing is that all this equipment should be in real parts with trained personnel, and not only at the exhibition for a commission from the center.

    It was just an assumption! If the motor depot landed it, then this information would be classified and not for one decade.

    In electronic warfare, our podos were never inferior. This is one of those industries that survived the collapse of the USSR. It is very good that new promising samples appear that have no analogues in the world. Well, as for entering the troops, I think everyone already knows how it will look something like this.

    ".. EW complexes" Infauna. "This is the newest, modern complex that allows you to organize group protection against defeat by radio-controlled mine-explosive devices, as well as from aimed fire of melee weapons. In terms of tactical and technical parameters and a set of implemented functions, according to capabilities "Infauna" has no international counterparts to comprehensive protection solutions for personnel and military equipment. "

    Of course it has no foreign analogues ..
    They have not made such “chandeliers” there for the technical reconnaissance of the firing points of small arms, since 1990 - for a long time no more than the size of more than two laptops. And you can install it even on a hunchbacked Cossack.
    Yes, and the suppression and reconnaissance of radio explosive devices is solved by less bulky devices.
    And then one antenna array of quarter-wave dipoles scares anyone you want.
    The whole world has long moved to active phased array antennas.

    Even the samples from the 1987 foreign arms directory were much smaller - with a diplomat.

    Judging by the size of the active elements of the antenna, the signals of mobile operators and radio stations of civilian frequency ranges, i.e. devices that are usually used by militants in the manufacture of improvised high-explosive landmines, are suppressed. I'm afraid if you make a carrier frequency generator in unused ranges of 40-60 kHz at VLF chips without any modulation and a fixed-frequency receiver with a telegraph signal detector, you can bypass this ingenious system in a very simple and cheap way.

    Yeah .. I think if Amer or any resident of NATO countries finds out that the Russians are preparing to bend them with "pink squirrels" - they will not be laughing.

    You need to judge not by name, but how the devices work! Americans over all of our technology have come up with their own classifications and do not complain at all (although they were invented from the bulldozer).
