Jamming Radar

You may recall seeing the news that Israeli warplanes attacked a suspected nuclear site in Syria… The venerable Aviation Week & Space Technology came out with its guesses as to how Israel was able to bypass the Syrian air defense systems:

The success of the attack might be down to use of the “Suter” airborne network attack system… Instead of jamming radar signals, Suter uses a more sophisticated approach of “hacking” into enemy defences…

The apparent failure of these systems in detecting and responding to the Israeli raid therefore poses questions for arms manufacturers and armies all the way from Damascus to Moscow and over to Tehran.
