The role of drones in interfering with war
The jammer usually causes the drone to perform a vertical controlled landing or return to its starting point-the default action for most drones to lose communication-“to assist in the investigation to determine the pilot,” the company said.
It shows the existence of Mi-8MTPR-1 helicopters in Crimea, equipped with Rychag-AV jamming stations, making these aircraft powerful weapons for electronic warfare operations. One of the main ways Russia adopts these systems is to deal with air defense systems and complexes by reducing the mute of its radio signals and the efficiency of UAV jammers. The results of a survey conducted by Ukraine in March this year showed that in 2016, Russia deployed such helicopters on the territory of SMD and the Western Military District (WMD).
The radar jammer forces the drone to land or return to the drone operator immediately, which means it can protect personnel and infrastructure assets from drone attacks.
The weapons being developed or the arsenals of China, Russia and the United States are undergoing various space arms races. Space weapons include satellite jammers, lasers and high-power microwave gun systems.
Experts say that the biggest threats seen today are non-kinetic threats, such as jamming satellite-based capabilities such as GPS and communications. And the threat is not limited to aerospace countries, because satellite jamming technology is relatively cheap.
North Korea has used ground gps signal jammer in the past to affect military and civilian aircraft and ships. Harrison said there is evidence that insurgents in Afghanistan and Iraq also used interference.
Russian media claimed that the technology developed by the Russian military can neutralize opponents’ aircraft, ships and missiles within a radius of 5,000 kilometers. Vesti News first reported on April 14 that a Russian fighter plane had successfully tested the electronic jamming device on a US warship, the Black Sea destroyer Donald Cook.
