How Russia’s advantage in electronic warfare could ‘ground’ US Air Force

One of the consequences of falling for the trap in the Middle East of chasing thousands of replaceable ghost terrorists for decades: The enemy studies your every move.

 

Russian electronic-warfare powerhouse KRET—Concern Radio-Electronic Technologies —has started testing a powerful new ground-based jamming system that could cut the crucial data-links that enable the United States military to conduct operations around the world. The system is designed to be used in conjunction with advanced Russian-built air defense systems like the S-300V4 and S-400 to disrupt air operations. Continue reading

Russia to Test New Electronic Warfare Against Air, Space Attacks in 2015

ZHUKOVSKY (Sputnik) — A new multilevel system of electronic warfare, designed to counter means of air and space attack, will be tested in Russia in 2015, adviser to the deputy head of Russia’s Concern Radio-Electronic Technologies (KRET) said Tuesday. Continue reading

Russia claims to have super weapon that disables western satellites and long range arms

This could very likely explain what happened to the USS Donald Cook a few months ago, where it was described to be shut off like it was a simple television set.

As oft said here, what’s more concerning is not the Russian capability in war or the undeclared weapons, but what the American unintelligence community fails to see ahead of time until it’s too late. They all of a sudden become “shocked” to see something like this. It’s quite safe to say that Russia’s military (and also China’s) is just about on par with their American counterparts. Within the next few years, as America suicidally declines, they will be the dominant forces in the world.

As we speak, we’re living through the changing of the guard.

Russia is boasting a major advance in electronic warfare technology enabling Vladimir Putin’s armed forces to zap foreign military satellites, and “switch off” enemy weapons.

The new system will muzzle the guidance systems of Western cruise missiles and other high-precision arms, it is claimed.

Its Russian makers say it is a “fundamentally new electronic warfare system” which can be mounted on ground-based as well as air- and sea-borne carriers.

An active defense system developed for Russia’s fifth-generation T-50 jetfighter is also able to neutralize enemy planes’ stealth capability, RIA Novosti reported Friday, citing the press service of the Himalaya system’s designers, the Radioelectronic Technologies Concern [KRET].

The Sukhoi PAK FA fighter jet, also known as T-50, is ready to go into production next year, and boasts innovative technology which renders the pilot one part of the plane’s control system.

“The PAK FA is already to some degree a flying robot, where the aviator fulfils the function not only of pilot, but is actually one of the constituent parts of the flying apparatus,” explained Vladimir Mikheyev, deputy head of KRET, which is a unit of Rostech Corporation. Continue reading

New Robotic Russian T-50 Fighter Jet Fit for Star Wars

 

Russia’s new fifth-generation T-50 fighter jet, currently in the testing phase, incorporates elements of automation which make it more like a robot than a fighter plane, explains a representative from the Rostech corporation.

The Sukhoi PAK FA fighter jet, also known as T-50, is ready to go into production next year, and boasts innovative technology which renders the pilot one part of the plane’s whole control system.

“The PAK FA is already to some degree a flying robot, where the aviator fulfils the function not only of pilot, but is actually one of the constituent parts of the flying apparatus,” explained deputy head of the Concern Radioelectronic Technologies [KRET] unit of Rostech, Vladimir Mikheyev. “That is, the reaction of the aviator is a part of the control loop.” Continue reading

Russian Tu-160 Heavy Bomber to Be Invisible to Air Defense

 

KRET companies are designing engine control and fuel consumption systems as well as a maintenance service which would help the crew in force majeure situations.

On April 29, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu visited the Kazan Aircraft Production Association and ordered to resume production of the Tu-160.
“There is no match to the Tu-160 among supersonic aircraft,” Shoigu said.

Russian Army getting new radioelectronic warfare systems to cover Arctic areas

MOSCOW, April 3. /TASS/. Advanced radioelectronic warfare complexes of the Krasukha family will help Russian Army units to cover the Arctic areas, the press service of the KRET corporation for radioelectronic technologies said on Thursday. Continue reading

Russian Military Unveils Revolutionary Electronic Warfare System

Being that the Russians have already reportedly been able to shut down American warships (USS Donald Cook) in the Black Sea, this does not look good for the U.S. military since it’s also in suicidal decline through purges and defense cuts.

 

Russia’s new Richag-AV radar and sonar jamming system can be mounted on helicopters, ships and other military equipment to jam potential adversaries’ weapons systems from distances of several hundred kilometers away; it has been hailed by developers as having no analogue anywhere in the world.

At a presentation for journalists in Kazan on Wednesday, Russian radio-electronics firm Radio-Electronic Technologies Concern (KRET) announced that it is handing over the first batch of a new helicopter-mounted electronic warfare system known as the ‘Richag-AV’ to the armed forces.

Russian Military Receives Cutting-Edge Electronic Warfare Systems

Russian hi-tech company Concern Radio-Electronic Technologies (KRET) completed the 2014 Defense Procurement in advance and delivered up-to-date electronic warfare devices worth 17.1 billion rubles ($252 million) to the Defense Ministry, Igor Nasenkov, KRET deputy director, told journalists.

“KRET, a subsidiary of the state corporation Rostec has completed on schedule the 2014 Defense Procurement. The Russian Defense Ministry received all-new electronic warfare and state identification equipment, airborne electronics systems and measuring instrumentation,” he said.
