MOSCOW, June 25. /TASS/. 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.
Adviser to the KRET first deputy CEO Vladimir Mikheyev told TASS the integrated multifunctional electronic warfare system designed to target enemy aerospace vehicles would operate within the air defense and missile shield control contour.
"It will fully suppress communications, navigation and target location and the use of high-precision weapons," Mikheyev said.
"The system will be used against cruise missiles and will suppress satellite-based radio location systems. It will actually switch off enemy weapons."
The system’s ground component will be tested soon, hec said. "Ground tests are now going on in workshops. At the end of the year, the system’s component will leave the factory gates for trials at testing ranges," he said.
