Advanced system to guard Russia from hi-tech surveillance, drone attacks

Russia’s Defense Ministry has received the top-notch anti-radar system Krasukha-4. The system is designed to guard against aircraft-based electronic surveillance – including that carried out by drones.

  Bryansk electromechanical plant has delivered 1RL257 Krasukha-4  broadband multifunctional jamming stations to the defense  ministry, RIA Novosti reported on Sunday, citing a spokesman from  the Radioelectronic Technologies group.  
  The stations, which will complement Krasukha-2 units already in  use by the Russian army, will provide the military with powerful  radar jamming capability.  
  While technical details of the units have remained top-secret,  sources cited by Russian media have described the system as   “unique.”  
Krasukha-4 is able to effectively shield objects on the ground  against radio-locating surveillance satellites, ground-based  radars, or aircraft-installed Airborne Warning and Control  Systems (AWACS), a source with knowledge of the system told  Izvestiya.
