( PDF). ppti.info Retrieved August 14, ^ Katz, Yaakov (September 29, ) . PDF | On Jan 1, , Zsolt HAIG and others published ELECTRONIC WARFARE IN CYBERSPACE. PDF | Electronic warfare (EW) is an important capability that provides advantage to defence forces over their adversaries. Defence forces gather tactical.
A brief look at these advanced systems individually would help understand their relevance better. Accessed on January 19, Defence and Diplomacy Journal Vol. The antennas of the Krasukha-4 are mounted on the BAZ four-axle KAMAZ multi-terrain vehicle and this mobile unit is capable of operating at temperatures ranging from sub zero to plus 50oC Centigrade.
The Krasukha-4 Fig 1 functions by creating powerful jamming at fundamental radar frequencies and other radio emitting sources. Accessed on January 21, Accessed on January 22, Borisoglebsk This recently inducted EW system is being considered as the core of the radio-electronic warfare of the tactical units of the Russian Army.
One Borisoglebsk-2 Fig 2 is mounted on nine MT-LB armoured vehicles and together it merges four types of jamming stations with a single control console and uses a single algorithm for both radio intelligence and jamming modes.
Accessed on January 23, The system also utilises innovative technical solutions for building radio reconnaissance and automated control systems. It uses broadband covert signals for noise immunity and high-speed data transfer.
Accessed on January 25, Khibiny: Also developed by KRET, the Khibiny is a relatively small torpedo shaped EW container which can be itted on the wingtips of an aircraft in order to make the lying machines invulnerable to all modern means of defence and enemy aircraft.
An aircraft itted with the Khibiny, if under a missile attack, is alerted and covered with a radio-electronic protective hood, which prevents the missile from reaching the target and deviates it from its course.
Accessed on January 24, In addition, the intelligence collected by the Moskva-1 Fig 3 can also be used to effectively guide air defence systems to the enemy target invisibly by using the Moskva-1 deductions rather than using their own radars. It is believed that the Moskva-1 has a maximum range of km. Oleg Antonov, the Director of Aviakonversia, believes that nearly four jamming devices of the Zontik positioned strategically in the South Ossetia and Abkhazia Also the Krasukha-2 is claimed to have the capability to inluence the brain of the ired missile and change the light task, thereby, guiding the missile to a false target and exploding it.
The electromagnetic spectrum portion of the information environment is referred to as the Electromagnetic Environment EME. The recognized need for military forces to have unimpeded access to and use of the electromagnetic environment creates vulnerabilities and opportunities for electronic warfare in support of military operations.
Primary EW activities have been developed over time to exploit the opportunities and vulnerabilities that are inherent in the physics of EM energy. Activities used in EW include: electro-optical, infrared and radio frequency countermeasures; EM compatibility and deception; Radio jamming , Radar jamming and deception and Electronic counter-countermeasures or anti-jamming ; electronic masking, probing, reconnaissance, and intelligence; electronic security; EW reprogramming; emission control; spectrum management; and wartime reserve modes.
Electronic Attack[ edit ] Electronic Attack EA previously known as Electronic Counter Measures ECM involves the offensive use of EM energy, directed energy, or anti-radiation weapons to attack personnel, facilities, or equipment with the intent of degrading, neutralizing, or destroying enemy combat capability including human life.
In the case of EM energy, this action is most commonly referred to as jamming and can be performed on communications systems or radar systems. In the case of anti-radiation weapons, many times this includes missiles or bombs that can home in on a specific signal radio or radar and follow that path directly to impact, thus destroying the system broadcasting. Main article: Electronic counter-countermeasure Electronic Protection EP previously known as Electronic Protective Measures EPM or Electronic Counter-CounterMeasures ECCM involves actions taken to protect friendly forces personnel, facilities, and equipment from any effects of friendly or enemy use of the electromagnetic spectrum that degrade, neutralize, or destroy friendly combat capability EA.
So, EP brings with it the ability to defeat EA. Not to confuse the issue, but "jamming" is not part of EP, it is the target of EP. Jamming is an EA capability see above.
Flares are often used to distract infrared homing missiles to miss their target. The use of flare rejection logic in the guidance seeker head of an infrared homing missile to counter an adversary's use of flares is an example of EP.
Other examples of EP include spread spectrum technologies, use of restricted frequency lists, emissions control EMCON , and low observability stealth technology.
EWTRs are equipped with ground-based equipment to simulate electronic warfare threats that aircrew might encounter on missions. Other EW training and tactics ranges are available for ground and naval forces as well. Antifragile EW is a step beyond standard EP, occurring when a communications link being jammed actually increases in capability as a result of a jamming attack, although this is only possible under certain circumstances such as reactive forms of jamming.Apart from developing advanced EW hardware, Russia also trains its forces in the use of such advanced EW equipment and conducts regular drills and competitions within its forces to keep its personnel well-aware about such systems as well as knowhow to use them in a real war scenario.
Electronic warfare played a major role in many military operations during the Vietnam War. The recognized need for military forces to have unimpeded access to and use of the electromagnetic environment creates vulnerabilities and opportunities for electronic warfare in support of military operations.
Not to confuse the issue, but "jamming" is not part of EP, it is the target of EP. However, the same assets and resources that are tasked with ES can simultaneously collect information that meets the collection requirements for more strategic intelligence. These staggering losses effectively ended the Russo-Japanese War in Japan's favor.
