    Russian engineers are working on a new signal suppression system that could block cruise missiles and communication of satellites, said Yuri Maevskiy, the Deputy Director of Radio-Electronic Technologies Concern.

    The new high-tech system will shut down cruise missiles and other high-precision weaponry, as well as jam the signals of foreign military satellites, Meavskiy said.

    The system will be installed on the ground, sea and air; however, no space-based variant is planned because that would violate international treaties. The signal suppression system will be part of Russia's air defense and anti-ballistic missile shield.

    The system will be ready for trials at the end of the year.
