It’s about working in pairs. At the same time, the drone often operates at the very borders of airspace, forcing the Russian S-400 to work in an active mode, while military reconnaissance aircraft scan electronic signals and process them.

Specialists were able to find out that the pairing of American military aircraft and drones off the coast of Crimea and the Russian military air base Hmeimim in Syria is associated with scanning the frequencies of Russian S-400 systems, having gained control over which the American side will be able to freely violate the borders of Russia.

Against the background of earlier information that Washington still managed to gain access to the frequencies of the Russian S-400s, experts had a question about whether the American military aviation was trying to make an attempt to break into the airspace of Russia, affecting the radar of the Russian air defense systems.

“If the United States really has access to the frequencies of the Russian S-400, then there is a chance that the Americans are trying to bring the work of the Russian S-400 off balance, and there is a similar probability,” the specialist notes.

Nevertheless, experts say that at the moment, Washington is simply wasting time.

“Even if the United States succeeds, Russia has a huge number of other systems and radars, including those operating from a distance of several thousand kilometers,” an analyst quotes.

Raytheon’s radar recalls that March 19 this year the U.S. Raytheon Company completed the first round of testing of the first partially populated radar antenna array for the U.S. Army’s Lower Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensor, or LTAMDS.

Some military experts said that Raytheon’s radar is very similar to Russian S-400’s radar.

LTAMDS consists of a primary antenna array on the front of the radar, and two secondary arrays on the rear. The radar antennas work together to enable operators to simultaneously detect and engage multiple threats from any direction, ensuring there are no blind spots on the battlefield.
