KRET, a developer of electronic equipment for the Russian military, will use information gained from studying a US Tomahawk cruise missile unexploded in Syria, to boost the capabilities of its own equipment.
The company is specializing in electronic warfare.
“Our new equipment needs to cover all spectra, optical and radio, which we found in the products of our counterparts,” the company’s First Deputy Director Vladimir Zverev told Radio Sputnik. “As specialists we were very interested in seeing the real-life use of various weapon systems in Syria, including the Tomahawks. Now having this missile in our hands we clearly know what channels it uses to communicate control, navigation and geolocation information.”
Russia reportedly obtained at least two missiles fired at Syria on April 14 by the US, the UK and France in relatively undamaged state.
