Sputnik News reports Russia’s Head of the General Staff’s Office for the Development of UAVs, Major General Alexander Novikov, has said that Russia has deployed a counter UAS system in Syria. “In order to efficiently fight unmanned aerial vehicles at Russia’s armed forces deployment positions in Syria, we have developed a system, including subsystems of detection, warnings of flights of unmanned aerial vehicles, and jamming and hard-kill measures,” Novikov was reported as saying at a round table meeting during the Army-2017 forum. He noted that subsystems comprised missile defence means, radioelectronic combat (REC) systems and aerial surveillance equipment.
