MOSCOW, September 14. /TASS/. Electronic warfare units from the Western Military District have practiced jamming a simulated enemy’s drones using the Zhitel jamming communication station during the Russian-Belarusian exercise Union Shield-2015, District spokesman Colonel Oleg Kochetkov said on Monday.
"In accordance with the scenario of this stage of the exercise, a simulated enemy used drones to reconnoiter advancing units of the regional force. The electronic warfare units used the Zhitel jamming system to determine the drones’ control and data transmission frequencies and severed communications channels by jamming," Kochetkov said.
The Zhitel crews disrupted the control system of a simulated enemy’s drones without jamming friendly aircraft, including drones.
The second stage of the Union Sheild-2015 exercise is taking place simultaneously at three training ranges in northwest Russia.
The maneuvers involve more than 7,500 Russian and about 1,300 Belarusian troops, up to 370 pieces of military hardware, about 80 aircraft and helicopters.
The exercise will end on September 16.
