    The review still lacks a lot. For example, the "Adros" complex, from the Ukrainian research and production company "Hadron", is a KT-01AVE optoelectronic suppression station designed to provide highly effective active protection of helicopters against guided missiles with infrared homing heads of various types.

    The Adros station KT-01AVE is capable of equally and simultaneously counteracting infrared homing heads with amplitude-phase (AFM), frequency-phase (ChFM), pulse (VIM) time modulation of the signal from the target and with increased noise immunity.

    At the moment, such systems are already being installed on the modernized Mi-17 and Mi-24 helicopters of the Polish Air Force, as well as on the new light attack helicopters PZL W-3WA. Ukrainian stations were also tested in real combat conditions as part of the Polish contingent in Afghanistan, and there is also information that such complexes were installed on Ukrainian Mi-24P helicopters in Cote d'Ivoire.

    Video showing the launch of MANPADS on a Ukrainian helicopter.

    At the moment, stations are actively exported to various countries of the world. So the complex is in service with Ukraine, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, China and Sudan.

    A similar American station ANQ-12 with a mass of 350 kg costs $ 1 million, while the Ukrainian product is much cheaper and lighter, has a simpler design and high reliability.

    Here you still need to be able to show, promote. And then I began to think that the Ukrainian military-industrial complex was already dead. I envy the neighbors, they all present their development, planned for 5-20 years in advance, will present, advertise, that it seems that everything is already in the army ...

    The secret to the successful development of Ukrainian electronics is that they create cheap and fairly efficient systems based on imported electronics and components. As experience of international cooperation shows, such products are significantly cheaper and significantly reduced in terms of their development, naturally at the expense of security. Although for most small states this level of security and reliability is quite sufficient.
    The main problem in the development of modern electronic warfare systems is its isolation from the communication system, which leads to the loss of control of their own troops. Indeed, frequency plans and modes of operation of their own means of communication are usually introduced in advance, without taking into account the rapid pace of changes in the electronic environment. For some reason, few people think that it is necessary to synchronize the operation of their own communications and electronic warfare systems with a single control unit, especially if their own communications operate in frequency hopping and automatic adaptation modes.

      Yes, it is because of this that the Ukrainian. products are competitive in the market - good architecture and normal components.
      I just disagree that it weakens security. At the level of simple components it is impossible to sew "honipots" for external interference into complex systems is very difficult. And having a strategic stock of parts in case of an embargo for several years is no problem.

      I came across EW products manufactured by the Ukrainian cantor, by the way it is not in this and the previous list. So, in the product of that cantor, in order not to press our own connection, the appropriate mechanisms were put in place that allow us not to press our own connection. As the representative of that company said, they needed to provide the necessary data on our communications complex and they integrate their electronic warfare product into our structure.
      This example of mine shows that integration of electronic warfare and communications, and possibly radar, is fundamentally possible. What our cantor wanted to buy was very small and local, but even at such a low level, integration was already offered. I think if you buy some serious electronic warfare, then the manufacturer will be interested in integration because integration is the headstock for them. And the fact that their own electronic warfare is crushing their own connection, I think it’s DYBILISM and the incompetence of the boss who made the decision to buy the electronic warfare system, because you need to be completely idiotic to buy something that is impossible to use.
      A good example of idiocy is the EW station on the SU-24M, it worked so well that there was no communication and television in a very large district. As a result, the pilots did not use this system in the exercises NEVER, as the person who flew on the SU-24M said they did not include this thing even once during the entire service. There is electronic warfare on paper, but nobody knows how to use it, and as a result, the electronic warfare system Su-24M has not been mastered and is useless.

        Regarding the Su-24M, complete nonsense and incompetence, as well as your pilot. The complex is magnificent at the time, if you know how to program it and use it correctly. He coped with Buk at times, communications and television have no effect, if only in a small radius and off-system interference. The range is not the same)
        If the Carpathians were to be used immediately in the war 080808 there would be no loss - I am sure.
        In order not to suppress yourself, there are a lot of techniques, both organizational and technical. For this, there is electronic warfare. After all, a tank and a machine gun can also shoot in their own, if it is in the hands of an idiot

    And not for nothing, in modern wars superiority in electronic warfare is often more important than superiority as the rest of the equipment. For example - if you correctly and tightly suppress radars and avionics on the Su-35 link, then the link of the medium-modernized MiG-21 equipped with modern missiles will shoot them like partridges from an average distance, especially if there is support for AWACS. Platform-to-platform battles are a thing of the past, today the battles of integrated integrated systems are relevant, and electronic warfare, coupled with intelligence and identification systems, is the backbone of modern troops.

    One officer I know praised Granite (or its equivalent, I don't know for sure). He said that it was thanks to this system that his people managed to bypass mine traps twice. The Americans were impressed by the very existence of this system in our soldiers and its effectiveness. They took our car with this complex a couple of times to escort their convoys (with our own crew).
