EU member claims Putin using top-secret electronic weapon to jam GPS on flights, ships
03/25/2024 // Ethan Huff // Views

Estonian military chief Martin Harem claims that Russian President Vladimir Putin is using top secret electronic weapons to jam GPS signals on airplanes and shipping vessels, which he says could result in crashes.

According to Harem, Putin is sparking chaos across the European Union (EU) by jamming GPS technology along the eastern flank of NATO. Most of the jamming appears to be centered in the northern half of Poland and into the waters between Poland and Sweden.

Finland is also reporting problems with its GPS guiding system for air and sea traffic, along with isolated problems in Latvia and Lithuania.

"What we have seen is a malfunctioning of GPS for ships and air travel," Harem said. "And we really do not know if they [Russia] want to achieve something or just practice and test their equipment."

"But definitely, nobody should behave like this, especially when you're at war with a neighboring country."

Russia's Tobol systems are defensive, too

Since the disruptions began, Estonia is the first NATO country to blame the Kremlin for it. The technology used for the disruptions is allegedly in Kaliningrad, the location where Putin recently visited to deliver his harrowing warning against the "vampire" elite throughout the West.

Kaliningrad is a sliver of land located between Lithuania and Poland. Russia annexed it from Germany in 1945, and after that time it was a strategic location for the then-Soviet Union during the Cold War Era.

It is feared that, should a war break out between Russia and NATO directly, Kaliningrad will be the location Putin chooses as ground zero.

Western intelligence reports are describing the GPS jamming technology as Tobol, describing its appearance as a large dish with an antenna attached to it. There are said to be at least seven Tobol complexes located throughout Russia.

How it works is a Tobol system will transmit a signal on the same frequency as a satellite that provides GPS connectivity. The satellite interprets the Tobol signal as the legitimate one, confusing the system and its data output to ships and planes.

Dr. Thomas Withington, an electronic warfare expert, says the dish can be directed to disrupt GPS signals in many directions at one time. This, he says, is probably how Kaliningrad will protect itself from incoming missiles in the event war breaks out between Russia and NATO.

In addition to jamming GPS signals as a defensive weapon, Tobol systems are also defensive in that they provide an "invisible" shield to protect against NATO's arsenal of satellite-guided missile systems.

"This may surprise some people but I think, ostensibly, it's defensive," Withington is quoted as saying. "The Russian military is highly concerned by global navigation satellite system weapons."

For the time being, Tobol seems to be primarily an offensive weapon, being used to damage the shipping industry. Withington says it is "deeply irresponsible" for Russia to be using the system for such purposes because "it's affecting the safety of navigation, degrading the safety of navigation."

"The good news is that aircraft and ships have other means of navigation," Withington says.

"It obviously is a cause of concern if those systems are not available ... so they're a very valid argument that what the Russians are doing is deeply irresponsible from a navigation point of view."

Should World War III break out soon – and by all appearances, this is a very strong possibility – then full-scale use of Tobol systems as an offensive weapon as well as a defensive weapon would likely ensue.
