When russians try to scale up their developments of anti-drone protection systems, the issue of effectiveness and reliability comes second

During the battles in northeastern Ukraine, Ukrainian soldiers destroyed a new russian electronic warfare system called Peroed, reports Colonel Serhii Cherevatyi, spokesperson for the Eastern Group of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

The key feature of this EW station is that it belongs to the type of portable system referred to as a "trench" device because of how easy it is to employ. It is designed to counter Ukrainian small UAVs and FPV drones, ArmyInform notes.

The Peroed system has a power output of 20/40 W, has a 12 V battery for a total endurance of 40 mins of non-stop autonomous working. It can also be plugged into a power generator, electrical grid, or car battery. The kit may also include a 10-meter (30 feet) long wire with a turn-on/off switch for remote control. The cost of a system is $3,000.

ArmyInform refers to the radio electronics expert Serhii Beskrestnov, also known as Serhii Flash. He adds that the way antennas are positioned on this EW system, it can only provide a protective "shield," not a "dome" for deflecting enemy UAVs. The estimated range would be 15 to 50 meters (50-165 feet), however, there is no guarantee it ensures a 100% result, based on the words of russians themselves.

On the part of Defense Express, we should add. On the one hand, it looks irrational that russians try to apply such low-effective EW tools, considering the Peroed system's specifications.

On the other, it indicates that the russian forces are attempting to scale up their production of low-cost anti-drone equipment while hoping to resolve the quality issues in the meantime. The price on a Peroed system of USD 3,000 is much lower than that of a Mavic drone, for instance. The idea that one such jammer is cheaper than a drone it is supposed to take down might be one of the stimuli to the russian EW equipment makers.
