MOSCOW, June 15. /TASS/. Russia’s United Instrument Manufacturing Corporation (UIMC) has developed a "microwave cannon" capable of disabling enemy aircraft and drones within the range of 10 kilometres, a UIMC representative told TASS on Monday.
"The mobile microwave radiation complex developed by our company - Moscow Radio Engineering Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS), is designed for out-of-band suppression of electronic equipment of low-flying objects and attacking elements of precision guided weapons," said the source, adding that the novelty would be presented at the Army-2015 Forum.
According to him, the system is capable of disabling the equipment of aircraft, drones and neutralising precision-guided weapons, ensuring a new level of defense. "In its technical characteristics the system has no known analogues in the world," said the UIMC representative.
He added that the complex consists of a powerful relativistic oscillator and a dish antenna, a control and monitoring system and a transmission system, mounted on the chassis of the Buk anti-aircraft missile system.
The new complex’s specifications are not disclosed, but according to a defence industry representative, its range exceeds 10 kilometers. "When installed on a special platform, the "microwave cannon" is capable of providing 360 degrees perimeter defense. The complex is also planned to be used to test the national radio-electronic systems of military equipment for resistance to high-power microwave radiation," the source said.
