Aviation expert Romanenko suggests why electronic warfare systems have become more effective in Ukraine

Aviation expert, leading researcher at the State Aviation Museum Valeriy Romanenko explains that due to electronic warfare systems, Ukraine can effectively influence the Russian navigation missile systems

He spoke about this on Espreso TV.

"Most missiles, especially Korean missiles, are guided by GPS, or at least most of the way they use satellite systems. Korean missiles use three satellite systems: Russian GLONASS, Chinese Baidu, and American GPS; Russian missiles also use the European Galileo system. That is, if you interfere with these systems, change these signals a little bit, the missiles will deviate and not necessarily hit the passive system they have on board that does not depend on GPS; the deviations can be so great that they will not be able to return to the trajectory," Romanenko explains.

In addition, the expert suggests that Ukraine may have received new electronic warfare systems that allow it to interfere with Russian missiles' navigation or communication systems in general. "I believe that the grouping of electronic warfare systems has not increased so much as their location and power, because now it is clear that this electronic warfare has become effective, although there were also cases when missiles fell anywhere, but this time the Air Force spokesman said that the missiles generally hit somewhere in the fields and forests. That is, some adjustments were made to their navigation system and routes that were not foreseen by those who launched them," emphasizes a leading researcher at the State Aviation Museum.

According to an aviation expert, every aid package from the United States or Germany includes electronic warfare equipment: "It is being delivered and has apparently reached such a density and such efficiency that now we can no longer waste missiles to shoot down Russian targets, especially against the Shaheds.”

What preceded

On the night and morning of January 13, Russian troops attacked Ukraine with various types of missiles and drones. It is noted that the Russians attacked Ukraine using cruise, aerial, ballistic, airborne, anti-aircraft guided missiles and attack UAVs.

In total, the Russian troops launched 40 air targets at Ukrainian territory during the night and morning. Ukrainian air defense forces managed to destroy 8 Russian cruise missiles.

Ukrainian Air Force spokesperson Yuriy Ihnat said that during the Russian morning attack on January 13, half of Russia's Kinzhal airborne ballistic missiles missed their targets.Ihnat clarified that a total of more than 20 air missiles, in addition to the eight that were shot down, did not reach their targets.They either fell in the field, were hit by Ukrainian electronic warfare or exploded in the air.

Director of the Center for Military and Legal Studies Oleksandr Musienko says that Ukraine is actively developing electronic warfare technologies to reduce the risks of Russian missile attacks and protect civilians.

On January 14, Yuriy Ignat, the spokesperson for the Ukrainian Air Force, announced that local authorities can purchase electronic warfare equipment to protect communities from Russian missile strikes.
