Ukrainian army receives new Mandat jamming complex

The SE “Scientific and Production Complex “Iskra”, which is part of the State Concern “UkrOboronProm”, successfully mastered manufacture of products for R-330UM “Mandat” and transferred the first two stations to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

As noted by the head of the customer’s representative #4222, Lieutenant Colonel Anatoliy Sanevych, R-330UV1M and R-330UV2M products are indispensable at the front. They successfully passed qualification tests and have a number of characteristics, having no analogues in the world.

The first sample of the mobile complex EW “Mandat” – having seven stations – was developed and manufactured by PJSC “Topaz.” In 2014, it passed the State tests and was accepted for service, by force of circumstances, manufacturing “Mandat” complex at PJSC “Topaz” in Donetsk for Ukraine became impossible.


Radio-communications jamming complex Mandat is an automated data acquisition and data procession system. It gathers data on emission sources and radiates aimed barrage jamming signals within an area of monitoring.

The complex allows to reveal enemy grouping in operational and tactical depth, to define a disposition of military units, divisions, their terrain co-ordinates and relocation based on enemy radio command lines and radio networks.

Within the whole controlled covered area (60km depth and 90km front) and within the whole operating frequency range (1,5-1000 MHz) the complex effec­tively jams up to 80 fixed frequency radio links or up to radio links with FH technique – that allows to ruin the enemy forces con­trol.
