The work is currently underway to develop an aircraft equipped with cell phone jammer systems that will replace Il-22PP Porubshchik [electronic warfare aircraft], which are currently being delivered to the Russian Aerospace Forces,” an unnamed Russian defense industry source told Sputnik News. “This machine will receive a fundamentally new on-board equipment, which will allow to conduct electronic suppression of any targets—ground, air, sea—and disable enemy satellites that provide navigation and radio communication on the ground.
The installation of equipment designed to make phone calls in prison meets very strict criteria. This is to avoid disrupting communication networks outside the prison. Mobile jammers are designed to make mobile phones unusable in certain areas. They made waves on a shelf for communication. The cell phone jammer blocks mobile radio and reception by transmitting waves, which will prevent communication between mobile devices and relay antennas.
As much as jails and prisons try to keep out cell phones through sophisticated metal detectors, inmates keep figuring out a way to smuggle them in. Experts say the only way to keep inmates from using them to conduct criminal activity is through cell phone jamming technology in state and local corrections facilities.
In January, NTIA said its researchers installed the signal jammer technology in a utility closet adjacent to a 13-by-eight foot cell on the ground floor of the prison’s housing unit, according to the study. It successfully blocked cellphone transmissions in commercial bands between 700 and 2170 MHz, but did not disrupt commercial transmissions when monitored at 20 feet and 100 feet outside the cell, said the study.
None of this is particularly noteworthy. Electronic-warfare aircraft, such as the EA-18G, have become a fixture of aerial warfare since World War II. Jamming radars, missile-guidance systems and communications networks has become par for the course. For that matter, the Pentagon worries about Russian and Chinese capabilities to jam or spoof GPS links that are key to accurate navigation and targeting.
The Russian sky army now has 3 jammers based on the Yel -22, but the first generation of “lumber” is not particularly large, the reason is very simple – Russia has only about 10 IL -22, and it is no longer produced.
The drone detector will automatically cause the Pitbull to start jamming as soon as a signal of an incoming drone is picked up. It also weighs only 735 grams and has a range of up to 2 km. These devices will change the meaning of drone jammers and replace the big guns with portable versions.
