‘superweapon’ capable of switching off foreign satellites and enemy weapons

We may have a real problem here.

Normally a fluff piece about the latest lab widgets promised to the armed forces wouldn’t be worth a posting.  What makes this one different is a while ago, I found a rumor that one of our DDGs was sailing in the Black Sea and was rendered helpless by some mysterious Russian electronic warfare.  The only part of the rumor I could prove was that we did have a DDG in the Black Sea at that time.

You’ve got to understand that the DDG is our state-of-the-art guided missile destroyer with about the most incredible radar and computer systems ever sent to war.  The basic technology is used extensively for defensive and offensive weapons. 

Add this latest news article from TASS and it looks as if the Russians used the Black Sea DDG for a successful field test.

Russia developing system capable of ‘switching off’ foreign military satellites Russia
June 25, 11:21 UTC+3
“The system will be used against cruise missiles and will suppress satellite-based radio location systems. It will actually switch off enemy weapons”, Russia’s KRET Deputy CEO said

Read the article, it looks as if the device will mess up virtually any sort of high tech electronics.  The description of what the device does is a good match for what is supposed to have happened to the DDG.  That would make all of our high tech weaponry obsolete.

MOSCOW, June 25. /TASS/. 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 Daily Mail has a similar, but slightly different article:

HOW IT WORKS

The firm has released no details of the system.

However, on its website, the firm hints at the product, which it is believed is codenamed Krasuha-4.

‘Mobile electronic warfare systems ‘Krasuha-4’ suppress spy satellites, ground-based radars and airborne systems AWACS (Airborne Warning and Control System).

‘Complex ‘Krasuha-4’ fully covers an object from radar detection at 150-300 kilometers, and may also cause damage to enemy radar electronic warfare and communications systems.

‘The complex functioning is based on creating powerful jamming at the fundamental radar frequencies and other radio-emitting sources.’

Anyone out there know where to find out what’s actually going on?  This could be real bad.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
