Russia covers Sevastopol Bay with electronic warfare: satellite images

During the Ukrainian drone attacks in occupied Sevastopol, invading Russian forces turn on extremely powerful electronic warfare equipment to create lights on satellite SAR images

This is reported by Defense Express. 

The real power of the Russian Federation's electronic warfare equipment employed to safeguard its military facilities is already evident from space. Flares appeared in satellite photos utilizing SAR technology as a result of significant interference.

SAR imaging uses synthetic aperture radar, which can see through clouds, fog, and smoke and is not affected by light levels. And it is on such photographs from the publicly available Sentinel 1 that the typical interference lights can be seen.

The photograph from November 24 reveals extremely strong interference. Simultaneously, on November 24, the Russian Federation reported a huge UAV attack in the still-occupied Crimea, involving dozens of drones.

“As for November 23, the Russian Federation only reported a surface drone attack on the morning of November 22, but it is possible that the enemy continued to keep electronic warfare equipment on the next day, or that there was a threat of another attack,” the company writes. 

At the same time, it is evident that the Russian forces only seldom employ electronic warfare equipment, and the photograph of October 28 does not reveal these flares.

According to Naval News, analyst Damien Symons, who noticed the lights, also recorded Russia's active use of satellite navigation spoofing in occupied Sevastopol. This was evident in the errors in the AIS (Automatic Identification System), when a number of ships and boats in the bay ‘teleported’ 8 km to land.

“At the same time, SAR imagery over the past few days in the occupied Crimea around other facilities has not recorded such active Russian electronic warfare, which suggests that the maximum concentration of the enemy's most powerful means is only in Sevastopol itself,” Defense Express notes.
