American special forces abandoned Samsung smartphones in favor of iPhone 6S

The command of special operations of the US Armed Forces refused from Android-based smartphones in favor of Apple gadgets, reports Rossiyskaya Gazeta with reference to Military.com.

American special forces abandoned Samsung smartphones in favor of iPhone 6S


According to the source of the publication, "iPhone 6S will be included in the assault kit of the special forces soldier (Tactical Assault Kit), replacing the previously used Samsung smartphone."

“iPhone is faster, works smoothly and without crashes. Android gadgets often freeze - especially when viewing an image with drone, and require a reboot. If you try to split the screen in two, in addition to the information from the UAV, displaying the route on it, Samsung stops updating the information and you have to spend precious minutes to return it to working condition, ” - he said.

It is also reported that the special forces command "introduces the technology of" network radio ", combining assault group fighters, external observers, command and support forces in voice chat with the ability to quickly transfer information." For this, smartphones are connected to radios with digital channels.

So far, however, "it was not possible to solve the problem of compatibility of radio stations used by special forces, snipers and infantry," the publication notes.

        Are you in the subject of what you are writing about?
        The same Apple sells a huge number of devices.
        And even in Russia they buy a lot. They buy absolutely in all categories of ages and incomes of citizens. Even despite the course and prices.
        The secondary telephony market lives only thanks to Apple.
        There is no less money spinning than in retail. And I believe that the times in 2-3 are more, and if quantitatively in pieces, then in 5-10 times more

          You can’t push new products to infinity, the boom of worshiping fans of new gadgets passes over time, and only the most ardent ones buy a new smartphone every year, and sales to sellers and manufacturers need to increase - they eat bread not only with butter, but they also want to smear the top of the bread.
          Every six months they issue "the latest and supernewest developments" to the mountain, Koreans generally rivet every 3 months, only the people have already got drunk - therefore they are looking for new areas and sales markets.

          All component parts for Apple devices are manufactured at third-party enterprises located abroad. This is due to the fact that in the United States of America there is no own production capacity, and ordering parts from well-known world companies with well-established production for Apple’s management is more economical than launching its own production base.
          Component parts for the famous iPhone smartphones are purchased from manufacturers of popular brands of household appliances and electronics - Samsung, LG, Hynix, Qualcomm, Elpida. In particular, the company signed a contract for the creation of processors with the Korean manufacturer Samsung, and LG Display employees make flat LCD displays for it. Thanks to such actions, Apple was able to reduce tax costs, which are far from minimal in America, as well as reduce the cost of the final product.
          The Foxconn plant is currently the only production base where iPhone is assembled from finished components. It produces forty percent of the world's electronics, in contact with leading brands of electronic devices, and began to fulfill orders of a well-known American company since the distant 2007. The Foxconn plant is located in Shenzhen, the southern city of China in the province of Guadong, on the border with Hong Kong. More than a million Chinese work there, two hundred and thirty thousand of which are directly collected by iPhones. They work twelve to fourteen hours a day, six to seven days a week, devoting all their time and energy to the production of smartphones of the American corporation.

            And this somehow affected the cost of this smartphone in Russia? The cost is still the highest in the world. But the Russian "smart guy" still goes and buys, and then screams all over the Internet that he gave the last money, and there are not enough pensions in Russia for a smartphone.

But the ability to use modern means of communication, electronic warfare, etc. much more important and such a skill can save more than one life.

        Former US National Security Agency (NSA) employee Edward Snowden and hacker Andrew Huang, nicknamed Bunnie (Andrew Huang), are working on an iPhone case that protects the identity of the owner of the smartphone.
        A case with a small display is attached to the back cover of the iPhone and is connected via a SIM card slot. Using the device, the user can track the signals that are transmitted through the antennas of the iPhone. If a signal is detected that poses a threat to the personal data of the smartphone owner (for example, it can reveal its location), the system warns the user about this and disables all data transfer functions.

        You are mistaken, the Internet is not a communication channel, but rather a protocol (a set of conditional agreements). The physical channel in the smartphone is a GSM radio channel with frequency-time division and a broadband "fay" channel lol
        with digital channel filtering (not frequency)

      Well, let's try seriously without banter.
      And so "IPhone 6S will be included in the assault kit fighter" instead of Samsung

      1. I hope you do not need to explain that the idea of ​​using civilian cellular networks on the territory of the enemy during operations is nonsense. If this is not so, then without banter (about roaming, stolen SIM cards and 112 can not do). Therefore, the radio module down and replace it with something specialized. I must say right away that in my opinion it’s impossible to replace link 16: just don’t push it into the case and put the battery in it. So something is generally exotic.

      2. The housing needs a moisture and dustproof minimum of IP67, and preferably IP68. Here you can not do with plugs on the connectors. therefore case off.

      3. The power system with a removable battery for the field gadget is dangerous. Someone wrote about the power bank, and you try to completely kill the battery in the iPhone (just hit it with a hammer for example) and then connect the power bank - you will be disappointed. therefore power system down.

      4.Tried to work with an iPhone with gloves on or just with dirty hands or in severe frost under snow? therefore touch down

      5. IOS is an OS designed for a permanent broadband Internet connection for the implementation of services. This is very useful for profit, but somehow not very for military use. In addition, even Link 16 is not fast enough for this. therefore axis down.

But if you give the task to Samsung programmers to remove errors and adjust Android to the drone software, then of course Samsung will win and leave Yablochnik far behind. After all, the latest Samsung model is much more productive, faster, the display is more contrast, larger in diameter, the RAM is three times more advanced, and the camera is much better, and Samsung is cheaper in cost than an apple product.

    I don’t know how for special forces, but for an ordinary person I can name the 3 main disadvantages of an iPhone:
    1. Only 1 SIM card can be used. For example, with two SIM phones, you can, for example, one megaphone and the second MTS, so you can spend less money on calls by making calls to megaphone numbers from a megaphone card from MTS to MTS numbers (now it’s true that they allowed changing the operator with saving the number, but still in the family and when talking with relatives, the savings are big).
    2. In a regular Android smartphone, you can insert a memory card of the volume that you need, with overtones you overpay for what you do not need. For example, I do not need 16 gigabytes of internal memory. In my Android, the internal memory is 2 gigabytes + a 2 gigabyte MicroSD memory card totaling 4 gigabytes. I have enough.
    3. Of course the price.

    And so it was. Three - four radio stations (three - four communication channels) for communication with units. Plus, there is one r / station for communication with the commandant’s office, a second for communication with the troops, a third for the FSB, + two HF for a direct line with the district headquarters and special operations headquarters. This kit was on duty in the combined unit in Argun. Yes, I forgot, a transceiver for communication with the homeland. So, for example, the same sappers working in their network had no idea what was happening, for example, in a cordon or with fire support or reconnaissance, until they received information from the duty unit. It was simply impossible to bring them into one network because of the large load on the network and the specifics of the tasks performed by the groups.

        The special forces have such an assortment of equipment that "you can't pick it up at once" - they are equipped for a specific task, therefore "under certain conditions". Infa in the article is not complete, again the translation ... I think that is what is meant by this.
        About connecting to a radio station - as it is written in the article. Probably for this there is a corresponding tech. support from specials))

          Yeah, or this is not in the original, or the article is generally about something else - let's guess.
          I clearly stated: what is called the iPhone 6s around the world is not suitable as a communication and control device in the military, and if it is used (which I doubt), then deservedly causes ridicule.

          Are you against?

    speak out and throw slippers
    for Warrior 3.0, you can make a cellular radio station-smartphone,
    for the police and special services its own option, and for civilians its own.
    A retractable camera is a very interesting idea, to get a television sight, (including for a corner shot),
    and a universal recorder with a navigator, and a video endoscope, and a smart detachable part of any optical device, including a sight, and a universal processor for remaking old weapons without any alteration!
    one and a half billion smartphones were sold in 2015, 50K Ratnikov is good, and 500K smartphones are also available to them - and the army is modern, at minimal cost.

    Well, God bless him with 6s, everything is clear to me here.
    I will try to formulate a stronger statement.

    Civilian smartphones are not suitable for communication and control devices in the military.
    Why?
    1. Communication flaws:
    - for a fully functional work requires a service network;
    - for work, a radio support network is required;
    - In subscriber devices circular messages are not supported;
    - easily suppressed;

    2. Operational disadvantages
    - limited temperature operating conditions;
    - not strong enough;
    - not waterproof enough;
    - not protected at all from EMR;
    - not protected at all from electronic warfare;
    - the touch does not work or does not work well with gloves;

    3. Ergonomic
    - The interfaces are universal, not professional;
    - the touchscreen is generally not very convenient in control interfaces;
    - a lot of excess garbage;
    - there is no protection from the fool;

      The Nett Warrior system, as well as ATAC and the ITAC being developed, mainly consist of a smartphone connected to a network radio. They allow the group commander to track their location and the location of their soldiers with pictograms on a digital map.
      They are also designed to help the commander view intelligence, surveillance, sensor channels,
      such as video streams from unmanned aerial systems.

      The Nett Warrior system uses a Samsung smartphone worn on the chest (maybe in your pocket) and is connected to the General Dyanamics AN / PRC-154A Rifleman Radio network radio.

      ATAC Special Operations Forces and ITAC use a smart phone connected to the Harris AN / PRC 152A radio.

      Both radio stations are part of the Tactical Radio joint system, but the PRC-152A allows operators to automatically navigate through various waveforms (waveform) to talk with units (people) in other services.
      The PRC-154A Rifleman Radio does not have this capability, the source said.


      All the same, the source looked

        And a cover. I won’t translate about a cleaning rag.
        The case comes with a plastic shield for your front screen and a cloth to wipe down the screen before you apply the shield.

    Well, yes, for Warrior it’s necessary to make a very reworked version, but the police always have a mobile with them, and in hybrid wars all this is a little easier to see.

    We must understand that all modern mass-produced devices and games are nothing more than ways to recoup the funds invested to create military technologies.
