ZHUKOVSKY (Moscow region), August 26. /TASS/. Foreigners are interested in buying Russia’s Krasukha electronic warfare (EW) systems, First Deputy Director General of Concern Radio-Electronic Technologies (KRET) Igor Nasenkov told reporters on Wednesday.
"There are foreign buyers for the Krasukha-2 and Krasukha-4 systems," he said at the MAKS-2015 international aviation and space show that opened in the town of Zhukovsky outside Moscow on Tuesday.
The Krasukha is a mobile, ground-based EW system, produced by KRET on different wheeled platforms. The Krasukhas' primary targets are airborne radio-electronics (such as UAVs) and airborne systems guided by radar. The Krasukha-2 system is intended to jam AWACS at ranges of up to 250 kilometres. The Krasukha-2 is also able to jam other air borne radars, such as radar guided missiles.
The Krasukha-4 broadband multifunctional jamming station is mounted on a BAZ-6910-022 four-axle-chassis. Like the Krasukha-2, the Krasukha-4 counters AWACS and other air borne radar systems. The Krasukha-4 has the range for effectively disrupting low Earth orbit (LEO) satellites and can cause permanent damage to targeted radio-electronic devices. Ground based radars are also a viable target for the Krasukha-4.
KRET is one of the largest Russian electronics holding companies. Established in 2009, it is a subsidiary of the Rostec State Corporation. Its key areas of operation include design, development and manufacture of on-board electronic equipment complexes and systems for civilian and military aircraft, airborne radar systems, friend or foe identification systems (IFF), electronic warfare (EW) complexes, measurement instruments (MI) for different purposes, electrical outlets, connectors, and cable assemblies.
