Russia plans to begin the international delivery of the Rychag-AB active jammer

Russian Radioelectronic Technologies holding KRET plans to begin the international delivery of the Rychag-AB active jammer.

The Rychag-AB active jammer is currently being delivered to the Russian Ministry of Defence as part of the electronic warfare suite on the Mi-8MTPR-1 helicopter. Eighteen of these helicopters are due for delivery to the Russian Army by the end of 2016.

The system can suppress several targets at once. In addition, thanks to an integrated database of different types of threats for covered objects, the device can define the type of target and select the most effective jamming method.


As reported earlier, batch manufacturing of Rychag-ABM station upgrades (which will considerably surpass its predecessor), may be utilized in the coming years. At the end of last year there were discussions about a pre-prototype of the option on an Mi-8AMTSH helicopter delivered for test operations.
