MOSCOW, / TASS /. Russia will deploy electronic warfare (EW) systems in Syria to counter high-precision weapons. The whole EW system will be strengthened in the coming weeks, adviser to the First Deputy Director General of the Radioelectronic Technologies Concern Vladimir Kolesov, Vladimir Mikheev, told TASS.
“To conventional radar protection systems, systems will be added that can fight high-precision weapons-guided bombs and missiles, which Israel will probably use, which has already stated that it will continue to work on objects in the region,” Mikheyev said.
According to him, “in addition, systems and facilities will be put in place that will block all systems and means of controlling aviation and ship groupings.” “This is a system for suppressing HF and VHF radio communications,” Mikheev specified.
According to him, the means of EW in Syria will be significantly expanded and supplemented in the coming weeks. “Unequivocally, a decision has been made, and the minister announced it.” I think at the same time, which are indicated on the build-up of the anti-aircraft missile grouping (delivery of Syria S-300 within two weeks – TASS comment), at the same time, deployed in the new positions of the REB system, “- said Mikheev.
Integration with air defense
According to Mikheev, the strengthened electronic warfare system will be fully integrated with air defense. “The classical air defense system implies radar and radio reconnaissance, and an anti-aircraft missile system, and a fighter cover system, and a REB system.” All these REB systems that will be delivered will be fully integrated with the air defense automated control system. This system will create the so-called reconnaissance and interference fire complexes, which completely cover the areas of concentration of our troops from the use on them not only of drones, but also of guided cancers t and airplanes “, – said Mikheyev.
The representative of KRET also said that “the possibilities to suppress space navigation systems will be increased, primarily, Navstar and Galileo, and other systems that can be used in this region.”
As Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said earlier, due to the Russian Il-20 crash, due to the actions of the Israeli air force, covered by Russia’s airplane from the Syrian fire, in particular, the means of electronic warfare will be strengthened in Syria.
What the Russian army can “blind” the enemy
April 15 in Russia marks the Day of the specialist in electronic warfare (EW). Currently, the technology is actively developing, creating new complexes for fighting on land, in the air and at sea. Last year, testing of the components of the ground-based REB complex, capable of protecting troops and civilian targets from aerospace attack, began.
The REB system is an important component of the military organization of the state and an integral part of all armed conflicts of recent years, including it proved to be effective during the operation of the Russian Aerospace Forces in Syria.
The history of REB in Russia dates back to the times of the Russo-Japanese War. Thus, on April 15, 1904, during the artillery shelling by the Japanese squadron of the internal raid of Port Arthur, the radio station of the Russian battleship Pobeda and the coastal post Zolotaya Gora created interference in Japanese radio air, making it very difficult to send telegrams of enemy spy ships.
As noted by the Deputy Defense Minister Yuri Borisov, all military conflicts show that the EW funds are the most effective and very popular among the troops in all directions.
According to Major-General Yuri Lastochkin, Chief of the Russian Air Force, the modern Russian equipment is superior to Western analogues in a number of ways, including range. It is achieved through the use of more powerful transmitting devices and more efficient antenna systems.
