The new electronic warfare system was adopted by the Russian army in 2019.
The Russian Ministry of Defense (MoD) announced on its website on March 12, 2019 that the system can be used to discreetly target radio frequency objects, conduct bandwidth and specific frequency jamming, and detect adversarial forms of EW.
Palantine can also be used to create a system of systems by combining different EW and electronic reconnaissance systems into a single coordinated network to increase effectiveness, the Defense Department explained.
