The Borisoglebsk-2 is a multi-purpose jamming system developed by the United Instrument Manufacturing Corporation for the Russian Armed Forces.
Its development started in 2004 and its evaluation testing was completed successfully in December 2010. The system was initially introduced to the Russian army in 2014.
Speaking to Sputnik Iran, Danil Gatilov said that the Borisoglebsk-2 is designed to suppress mobile satellite communications and satellite-based navigation signals of a potential enemy.
"The Borisoglebsk-2 system is currently being upgraded. There is nothing like this system either in Russia or abroad in terms of its technical characteristics. The Borisoglebsk-2 is capable of detecting enemy ground-based sources of communication at a distance of more than 20 kilometers," he said.
Referring to the Borisoglebsk-2, Gatilov did not rule out that this "unique" product may be become the jamming system of choice for a whole array of countries.
"Judging by our talks with foreign customers, the subject of electronic surveillance is of great importance both to Russia and elsewhere. That's why our unique system is of interest to our customers from the Middle East, Asia and South America," he said, especially referring to Iran.
Compared to previous jamming units, the Borisoglebsk-2 has a wider range of radio surveillance and suppression, hi-speed frequency scanning, a longer operative range and more precise radio wave emission source spatial localization.
