MOSCOW, April 25. /TASS/. Russia’s Concern Radio-Electronic Technologies group of companies (a subsidiary of State Corporation Rostec) has begun testing of components of a ground-based electronic warfare system, capable of protecting the troops and civilian facilities from an air and space attack. The tests will be completed during the year, a representative of the company told TASS on Monday.
"The consortium has launched factory testing of components of a ground-based electronic warfare system, capable of protecting the troops and civilian facilities from air and space attack weapons. The tests will be completed during the year," the source said.
Sources in the consortium said that this electronic warfare system is integrated with antiaircraft defense systems and means. "It conducts real-time automated exchange of data on the actions of the aerospace grouping for purposes of centralized target assignment," the source said.
According to him, the system consists of separate jamming modules that are capable of influencing the enemy’s command and control system at long distances emitting a powerful and complex digital signal. "Multichannel stations that ensure simultaneous inhibition of various avionics systems have been created", the company representative said.
The consortium’s First Deputy Director General Igor Nasenkov is quoted by the company’s press service as saying that the jamming modules are elements of a hierarchically-structured multilevel system.
"Their energy, frequency and intellectual resources are distributed in an optimal way. In addition, all the modules are equipped with individual defense sets because they are the prime targets for enemy’s attack", he said.
Previously, the company's deputy head Yuri Mayevsky told TASS about the development of this system. According to him, the system will be installed on ground platforms, aircraft and offshore platforms.
