The newest Russian electronic warfare systems, allowing to intercept the enemy’s signals and to create interference for them, pose a serious challenge to the US allies’ forces that are conducting exercises in Eastern Europe.

The developed technologies allow Russian troops not only to successfully identify the source of enemy’s radio signals, but also to better disguise their own radio communications, which allows to maintain the secrecy of the Armed Forces’ deployment, writes the newspaper.

According to the US Army spokespersons who were inspecting the exercises held in Lithuania, the protection of communications is the main difficulty. Lacking such protection, allies cannot name the data on their deployment and location of the command units.
