Russia developing system to ‘switch off’ foreign military satellites

1

Russia’s Radio-Electronic Technologies Group (KRET) is developing a fundamentally new electronic warfare system capable of suppressing cruise missile and other high-precision weaponry guidance systems and satellite radio-electronic equipment, KRET Deputy CEO Yuri Mayevsky told TASS on Thursday.

“The system will target the enemy’s deck-based, tactical, long-range and strategic aircraft, electronic means and suppress foreign military satellites’ radio-electronic equipment,” Mayevsky said.

The system will be mounted on ground-based, air-and seaborne carriers, he added.

“It will not be based on satellites as this is prohibited by international rules and we comply with this rule,” he said.
