Russia Develops New Technology That Can Disable All American Drones
Microwave gun can deactivate Drone radio electronics
There is growing tension between Russia and America and this invention won't do anything to ease that. Russia has now developed a new super-high-frequency gun which is capable of deactivating Drone's (unmanned ariel vehicles) at a range of 10 kilometres on impact ensuring a 360-degree perimeter defence.
It was announced by Russia's United Instrument Manufacturing Corporation (UIMC) that the gun has been developed for BUK missile systems it was reported by Sputniknews.
A representative for the corporation stated the new technology is able to deactivate Drone radio electronics and also the warheads of multiple precision weapons.
The new technology, aptly named the microwave gun, has been in development for Russia's Defence Ministry and will be demonstrated at an international event organised by the Russian Defence Ministry, Roscosmos and Rostec, which will be held on the 16 -19 June.
The characteristics of the new technology have not been revealed by the representatives yet, but the only information known about the microwave gun is that it is able to impact UAV's from 10 kilometres with a defence perimeter of 360 degrees.
The Russian president, Vladimir Putin , is now bidding to modernize the nation's armed forces, Russian officials have also told of the capabilities of their new Armata T-14 tank which is covered in ceramic armour and is 50% stronger than traditional equipment.
“The new system is equipped with a high-power relativistic generator and reflector antenna, management and control system, and a transmission system which is fixed on the chassis of BUK surface-to-air missile systems. When mounted on a special platform, the ‘microwave gun’ is capable of ensuring perimeter defence at 360 degrees,” the representative said.
The system is capable of out-of-band suppression of the radio electronic equipment of low-altitude aircraft and the assault elements of precision weapons. The gun is able to deactivate the equipment of aircraft and UAVs, and neutralize precision weapons.
There are currently also plans to use the system for testing Russian military radio electronic systems against the impact of powerful super-high-frequency emission.
