Russia’s Radio-Electronic Technologies Group (KRET) is developing a fundamentally new electronic warfare system capable of suppressing cruise missile and other high-precision weaponry guidance systems and satellite radio-electronic equipment, KRET Deputy CEO Yuri Mayevsky told TASS on Thursday.
"The system will target the enemy’s deck-based, tactical, long-range and strategic aircraft, electronic means and suppress foreign military satellites’ radio-electronic equipment," Mayevsky said.
The system will be mounted on ground-based, air-and seaborne carriers, he added.
"It will not be based on satellites as this is prohibited by international rules and we comply with this rule," he said.
Mobile electronic warfare systems 'Krasuha-4' suppress spy satellites, ground-based radars and airborne systems AWACS (Airborne Warning and Control System).
'Complex 'Krasuha-4' fully covers an object from radar detection at 150-300 kilometers, and may also cause damage to enemy radar electronic warfare and communications systems.
'The complex functioning is based on creating powerful jamming at the fundamental radar frequencies and other radio-emitting sources.'
Experts claim a revolutionary new weapon that can jam enemy missile guidance systems and satellites is set to enter testing this year. An earlier version of the system, called Krasuha-4, is shown.
