The Russian army has established a ground-based unit specializing in defeating enemy drones. The unit—the first of its kind in Russia—operates electronic jamming systems that, in theory, can sever the radio connections between unmanned aerial vehicles and their operators.
That’s why Russia’s drone jammer, and the new counter-drone “special forces” that operate them, don’t necessarily pose an existential risk to the US military’s UAVs. The Russian drone-hunters could struggle to pinpoint targets. “It would seem to be hard to do unless you knew where they were going to be and when,” one former US drone-developer explained on condition of anonymity.
Why do we have to use jammers?
We live in a society that thrives on cell phone usage. We keep them on hand 24/7 in case we need to look something up to win an argument, get an important text or email that couldn’t wait an hour for us to check, or take a selfie of whatever it is that we’re doing that we feel all of our Instagram followers should know about. Our cell phone jammer have found ways to become a part of every single aspect of our lives. And while they have done a great job at connecting us with friends and family around the globe, and helping to organize our lives, we have all had movie experiences ruined by an overzealous texter.
For example, in the past, when we got together, we always talk face to face. And now, we look down at the phone screen. Various social software devours our lives. At any time, always do not forget to take pictures, upload to Facebook or every day concerned about the dynamics of others. Of course, the use of mobile phones in the classroom, loudly answering the phone in the restaurant, in the theater and church phone ringing is also common.
