For this purpose, special devices – “silencers” are installed on board the “Orlan-10” drones, as well as disposable jammers that can be dropped to the ground.
After suppression, the Leer-3 UAVs substitute the base stations, becoming virtual cellular stations.
The electronic warfare system gains control of mobile devices connected to the captured mobile base station, including intercepting calls and traffic.
The operator of the system can send messages, call users or display images in different browsers on mobile devices of subscribers.
Orlan-10 is a medium-range, multi-purpose unmanned aerial vehicle, it is used at distances of up to 120 km from the control point. In autonomous mode, it can fly a distance of 600 km. Time in the air – up to 18 hours, flight speed – 90-150 km per hour. Its weight is 14 kg and it is launched from a special catapult.
