Media: US capabilities to conduct electronic warfare is much lower than Russian

Feeling for themselves the capabilities of the Russian EBS "Krasuha-4" in Syria and Ukraine, the US military is forced to admit that unconditional leadership in this matter today belongs to Russia, according to an article published in the journal Foreign Policy.


Media: US capabilities to conduct electronic warfare is much lower than Russian


“From the beginning of the operation in the Crimea, the Ukrainian military noted that their radio transmitters and telephones could not function for several hours,” the article quotes. RIA News. “For its part, the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission reported that its drones faced GPS jamming, and therefore the UAV had to be planted.”

“There are entire combat units in Russia that are engaged in electronic warfare,” said Jeff Church Church, head of the EW section of the US Army, as the journal says.

These units, according to him, have special equipment and they have a "special order of subordination." Whereas in the US Army, "these tasks are usually performed by two soldiers from the battalion who provide round-the-clock operation." Church noted that in total “more than 1000 of such positions are provided, but only 813 is occupied”.

He also admitted that in the last 10 years, the allocation of money for the purchase of new equipment is proceeding according to the residual principle, “which is why it mainly lies on the shelves and requires repair and refurbishment”. “Without regular funding, it becomes obsolete,” Church added.

The Pentagon "is developing several programs to update and improve the integration of electronic warfare, but none of them will be implemented in the near future," concludes the publication.

        I can be mistaken, but the admiration of the State Department, the Pentagon, the command of the Euro NATO, and the Western press towards Russia and the Russian Defense Ministry annoys me personally. When enemies praise you, wait for troubles and set-ups.

        Absolutely right! EW is one of the most closed topics and not for public discussion. THEREFORE, HERE YOU CAN WAIT ANY DOGS ... PRAISE .. FALSE INFORMATION INFORMATION IN ORDER TO COVER THE TRUE STATE OF THE MATTERS AND LEAD THE OPPONENT TO THE DEADLINE BRANCH OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF B \ TECHNOLOGY!
        The development of A. Merov’s industry in the ELECTRONIC ELEMENT BASE raises very big doubts about the statements about the cardinal lag of the USA ...

          The only question is: will the trend continue, if I may say so? What we now have is the development of a Soviet design school performed by designers and engineers who were educated in the USSR. 20 years later, in the framework of the modern Bologna system of education and undergraduate studies, I’m not sure that there will be specialists who can give out something more complicated than an iron! You should immediately pay attention to the education system in our country and to the relevant ministers! Otherwise ... are we all dead?

          the American army did not yet need real EW, because it was pointless against those with whom they fought.

          Our army was preparing to confront against NATO, and therefore prepared.

          I think they don’t have much time to pull themselves

        Americans praise Russian weapons only when it is beneficial to them, i.e. as it is now with the goal of knocking out extra money from Congress.

        Это точно, особенно когда свежи воспоминания начала операции в Ираке "Буря в пустыне". Тогда американцам удалось создать такую мощность помех, что советские радары на побережье Черного моря были почти полностью подавлены, показывали только засветки и пеленги во всем южном направлении. Современные российские радары немного лучше защищены от помех, в основном из-за возможности быстрой перестройки частоты и широкополосных сигналов, но и техника РЭБ не стоит на месте.

        and right. Doubts are justified
        Like yes:
        The US EW service, comprising 813 (TOTAL) officers, warrant officers, and sergeants, for the most part has a good knowledge of EW theory

        BUT
        1. They rely on aviation (surface-to-air air defense systems aren’t normal), and not on the ground.
        Aviation is simpler and easier (long-range, mobile)
        The basis of the army’s electronic warfare kit is aviation radio and electronic reconnaissance systems that monitor the enemy’s territory to a depth of at least 100 km.

          3. From ten largest in the world multinational corporations in the field of IT eight transnational corporations belong to the USA (ninth and tenth transnational corporations - Sony, Samsung), then the US IT industry, having created an extremely profitable and high-tech industry, was able to influence the economic and technological development of the world.

          The functional purpose of the REP of the U.S. Armed Forces is to administer (regulate) the electromagnetic spectrum in combat operations - the Joint Electromagnetic Spectrum Management Operations, which, according to the analysis of the experience of the real use of U.S. EW in local conflicts, consists in conducting administrative measures in the entire electromagnetic frequency spectrum. Among them are the ability to carry out electronic interference (Electronic Attack), electronic protection (Electronic Protection) and electronic warfare (Electronic Warfare Support).

          3.Cool thing: Next-Generation Airborne Electronic Attack (NGAEA)

          10,4 kilowatts.
          fully digit, not tied to AFAR.
          It can irradiate (suppress) several targets with different frequencies SIMULTANEOUSLY
          Сравниваем с"кабель салат" AN / ALQ-99



          EA-18Gs and f-35 everything will be removed in the body (aerodynamics, EPR)
          ALQ-99 reduces maximum speed, increases fuel consumption, increases EPR, introduces interference to AFA radar

          EIRP-low-power radio transmitter with a directional antenna can create in some direction the same level of radio emission as a powerful radio transmitter with a weakly directional antenna.

    Существует три основных критерия на которых базируется все достижения человека в радиоэлектронике . Это получение высокой плотности эл. магнитного импульса . Расширение шкалы диапазона этого импульса . И управляемость этими эл. магнитными процессами. Поэтому и военные достижения напрямую зависят от этих научных достижений.

    The fact that we are not lagging behind in EW is certainly pleasing, but the words of the Pendoshkan Church speak more likely that the Pentagon is eager to cut budget funds.

    In the late 80s, when I served in St. Petersburg, I had a chance to talk with one officer from the VKS. Then he asked him a stupid question: Do you need horseradish, except to look at the ground and take pictures of something there? What else can you do? The answer struck me ... It turns out even then they could turn off the TV and radio stations of any country and start broadcasting in this country themselves, establish interference, block the work of spy satellites ... Honestly, I apologized for my stupidity, although this were my good friends. And more than 25 years have passed ... Surely, our VKS has a lot of interesting things for adversaries ...

    The development of domestic electronic warfare equipment has never stopped. In the 90s, too, they walked, but by inertia, like a coasting machine with an engine stopped. But managed to turn on the ignition in time. After all, there were promising developments of Miass, Plast, Turanga, Shunak. Many ideas have found application in the electronic warfare systems produced. Purpose in present - Improving the reliability of Reb systems.
