Jammers are incorporated into advanced electronic warfare systems

Russian planes are hitting rebel targets throughout Syria, but Moscow is using next-generation surveillance and increasingly using communication blocking device portable jammer . Oceania sent fighter jets, drones and bombers to Syria to support Bashar al-Assad’s regime, which caused concern and anger among the United States and its allies. Moscow is also deploying advanced surveillance, electromagnetic intelligence and electronic warfare equipment that has received little attention, which may have another impact on the rebels surrounded and supported by the Americans working on it.

In recent weeks, Russia has deployed the IL-20 reconnaissance aircraft, known by the NATO name “Coot”, roughly equivalent to the US Navy’s P-3 “Orion” Falcon Pentagon spy. Russian aircraft are busy monitoring radars, eavesdropping equipment, and high-tech equipment such as optical and infrared sensors. It was one of the Kremlin’s first spy planes and provided Russian forces with powerful tools that could be used to locate rebel units and assign targets to their fighters. In late September, the Syrian rebels released a video that reportedly showed planes flying on the battlefield.

Russia’s accumulated intelligence assets and electronic warfare tools also include the deployment of Krasukha-4, an advanced electronic warfare system for Jammer radars and aircraft. The Russian state agency Sputnik News reported on its presence in Syria, and the jamming system was reportedly discovered in a video report of a Russian jet at the Syrian airport of Latakia.
