MOSCOW, February 3. /TASS/. Russia's KRET radio-electronic corporation (an affiliate of Rostec) will develop an air-and-space-based electronic warfare system in two years’ time, the concern’s first deputy CEO, Igor Nasenkov, told the media on Tuesday.
He said the system would be causing "intellectual disinformation effects" on the enemy.
"This is a fundamentally new product of ours. Research and development is estimated at 2.5 billion roubles ($35 million). The supplies are scheduled to begin in 2017," Nasenkov said.
KRET will also start manufacturing its own navigation system this year. The project is estimated at 14.5 billion rubles (over $205 million), Nasenkov told the media.
"Starting from 2015 we are launching a new 14.5-billion (200-million rouble) project. It is a remote inertial navigation system capable of operating without the GPS or Glonass," Nasenkov said, adding that 1,500 such systems would be manufactured a year.
