RUSSIA has extended the range on its robot drone-carried jammers to over 60 miles in a terrifying new development in electronic warfare.

The sight of the flying robot signals incoming strikes as well as the inability for troops to call for help.

Research analyst at the Centre for Naval Analyses Samuel Bendett told C4isrnet.com: “Russia has been using a UAV-mounted cellphone jammer for a number of years now.

“When these UAVs fly in teams, one acts as a signal-and-comms relay while another acts as a jammer.

“These Leer-3 systems have been around for about two years at this point.”

But the range of the jammer is significantly more and TASS reports the range is a 3.5 times increase.

Mr Bendett said the capability or an earlier version of it has been used in the Ukrainian conflict.

He added: “Ukrainian forces claim to spot Leer-3 systems in eastern Ukraine, while there is potential evidence that Leer-3 was used in Syria as well.

“Russian forces are constantly training with Leer-3 UAVs as they practice adversary signal and cell comms suppression, identification and eventual destruction of the enemy force.

“In fact, this kind of training is part of the official [tactics, techniques and procedures] in electronic warfare and other forces across the Russian military.”

Advancements in electronic warfare are one of the key components guiding the development of autonomous systems for the military.

The extension comes after Vladimir Putin unveiled Moscow’s owl shaped drone in October.

The “robird” device, designed to “hide in plain sight” has been built to fly silently and uses a laser designator to precisely aim at prey.
