The drones are small.. and they being shot down itself is a direct indication of a breach..
Another question for the A2A missiles onboard a stealth aircraft.. are they radar enabled heat seeking stuff which acquire a lock before firing
Or are all missiles onboard stealth aircraft for ground strike only..
e.g: LGBs, GBUs, JDAMs etc..
I dont know if anyone's brought this up before if one has a PCL devices on the ground and say an F-22 tries to acquire an active lock then won't it
give its position away?
Any radar guided missile or missile having its own guidance system will be like a 'torch beam in the darkness' for all passive listeners..
Again this "ECM".. what is this ECM.. can some please let me in on the term..
are you talking about noise?
As for taking out the SAMs themselves.. The strike aircraft will have to breach the drone patrol region to get to the SAMs right?
And say you do take a SAM out..or maybe a couple; that only reduces the processing power, it doesn't incapacitate it....
Moreover if the drones are programmed with decent enough AI, they should be able to alter course to get better returns..
Say a couple of drones get shot at or get faint readings in one region then they should be sentient enough to 'investigate' that..
As for cellphones, they don't need STP RJ-45 connectors..
They work just fine w/o any phy connection..
Relay all drone comm. through geosynch platforms maybe..I dunno..
Maybe a pictorial rep is required...
How does one upload paint bmps?
What I'm trying to say is that the drones,ground stations, PCLs, drone relay satellites and SAMS should be strategically placed so as to incur min
loss before getting a decent firing solution..
intelgurl.. I ain't an engg. yet!.. Will graduate this June!!
But telecomm/wireless comm is one of my fav subjects!!
Note:In the ol' soviet being an engg. was considered to be good enough to get a prefix title like a med doc..
You'd have "Comrade Dr. Dostovsky
and you'd have" Comrade Engg. Rozhdestvensky
Fancy "Comrade Engg Daedalus3"...
And btw.. why the curl
sorry ..Im a bit off the rocker today.. pardon the absurdities..
