Growing Concerns About Russia’s Electronic Warfare Capabilities…

 GROWING CONCERNS ABOUT RUSSIA’S ELECTRONIC WARFARE CAPABILITIES: ...

Ever since the USS Donald Cook incident, there’s been growing concern – finally being voiced by American and Western military leaders – that Russia’s capabilities in electronic warfare, and in particular the ability to jam western communications and radar – is far more sophisticated than once thought, and now the concerns are over new “invisibility” technologies Russia is allegedly developing:

What interests me here is something far beyond the invisibility assertion. What interests me rather are the assessments of Russian capabilities, first revealed in the USS Donald Cook incident. You’ll recall that an old Russian Sukhoi-24 fighter bomber approached the US naval frigate in the Black Sea, when suddenly the ship’s electronics and computer systems went down. The Russian jet then made no less than twelve passes over the American ship on mock attack runs. At the time, US authorities denied the two events were linked, even as the Donald Cook made for the nearest Rumanian port of Constanza for “rest and repairs”, also, we were assured, having nothing to do with the incident. In short, we were being told that the old Russian fighter has nothing whatsoever to do with the equipment and electronics failure on the frigate.

Nothing to see here, nothing to be concerned about, move along.

But now, if one reads the article closely, it appears that some military leaders are challenging that narrative:

Lieutenant General Ben Hodges, the commander of the US army in Europe, has described Russian advances in electronic warfare in Syria and Ukraine – a field in which they were typically supposed to be backward – as “eye watering”.

[…] Moscow is now deploying anti-aircraft systems in Crimea… It is doing so, he says, in a way that makes it “very, very difficult” for Nato planes to gain access safely to areas including parts of Poland. 

Mr Putin has relished pointing out the significance of the West seeing “for the first time that these weapons do exist, that they are of high quality, and that we have well-trained people who can put them to effective use. They have now seen, too, that Russia is ready to use them…”

The article itself goes on to put this in perspective:

These unbelievably powerful applications in electromagnetic (EMF) warfare are game changers, and Russia has made significant strides in dominating the war zones of the future, for better or worse.

Russia has been shutting down and disabling U.S. ships and equipment around the world.

So where’s the high octane speculation here?

Well, note that Russia has been revealing and using these technologies operationally and tactically, not strategically. But their mere existence and the Russians’ willingness to reveal their existence by demonstrable use, against American targets, has got to have the midnight oil burning in the Pentagram and American intelligence agencies. And what probably has them concerned is, given the fact that the Russians were supposed to be “behind” in such capabilities, when in fact, they’re demonstrably not, raises the stakes and implications considerably, for this might mean it has an unrevealed strategic capability of a similar nature. and such an unrevealed strategic capability would mean that those neocon hopes and deliberations for “first strike” use of nuclear weapons might not turn out so well. To put it as plainly as possible…

Top Secret Test Will Produce GPS Outages In US Southwest

So many people sent me versions of this story, that I have to wonder what’s up. Here’s two versions of the story:

FAA warns pilots of massive GPS outages caused by secret weapon tests

Military Secretive About GPS Blackout Over California: “Testing Something That Disrupts GPS Over a Huge Area”

So what’s going on here?

Well, permit me to indulge in our usual geostationary orbital speculation. While there have also been stories that this test has been cancelled, it’s the story itself that intrigues, for behind it is the implicit claim that (1) the USA has a top secret weapon, (2) it intended to test it, and (3) the test would interfere in some fashion with Global Positioning data upon which modern air traffic depends, data that in turn comes from satellites.

This, I suspect, was the real message behind the test.

Message?

Yes, I said message. In case you haven’t noticed, the USA and Russia have been playing an old Cold War game, showing off their newest weapons systems capabilities to each other. It began with the Russian intervention in Syria, and its use of cruise missiles fired from Russian Warships in the Caspian Sea. The missiles reached their targets, of course, and obliterated them. More importantly still, Russia has unveiled the capabilities of its new land-based ICBM, a MIRVed monster that, unlike the ICBMs of yesteryear, is a weapon whose warheads are designed to strike anywhere on Earth, using any trajectory, eliminating the old “over the Arctic pole” trajectories. Moreover, it is claimed that these warheads can be re-targeted and re-directed in flight, and can thus change course. In other words, the new Russian ICBM is any missile-defense systems engineer’s worst nightmare. And one can only presume the Russians have added typical counter-measures to the weapon: dummy warheads and so on.
