Leer-3 was developed by the St Petersburg-based LLC Special Technology Center, a subsidiary of the KRET Concern. The system, which was first presented in 2015, was designed to monitor and attack GSM communications.
Each Leer-3 system relays on one or two Orlan-10 drones carrying electronic warfare payloads. The drone can stay in the air for 16 hours and has an operation range of 140 km.
The electronic warfare system can:
- Suppress mobile communications;
- Simulate a cellular station in the GSM 900 and GSM 1800 bands ranges and send false signals;
- Conduct reconnaissance by determining the points of radiation of devices in GSM networks;
- Detect subscriber points, including mobile phones, tablets and other communication systems;
- Locate subscriber points on a digital map;
- Transmit the coordinates of subscriber points to artillery crews;
- Observe the situation on the battlefield and the movement of troops from air;
- Assess the state of ground and naval facilities;
- Survey the field.
The Leer-3 system was deployed in Syria, where it provided electronic warfare capabilities for Syrian and Russian forces combating terrorist groups.
The system will allow Russian peacekeepers in Nagorno-Karabakh to monitor the implementation of the November 9 peace deal between Armenia and Azerbaijan.
Russia is planning to deploy 1,960 troops, 90 armored personnel carriers, 380 vehicles and special equipment units in Nagorno-Karabakh.
