The device, referred to as Murmansk-BN is capable of jamming radio frequencies of NATO vessels in the Mediterranean Sea. It is mounted on chassis of seven trucks, while the antennas are set on four telescopic struts up to 32 meters in height.
72 hours after full deployment and installation, the system can provide radio reconnaissance, interception of hostile signals and suppress the signals across the entire short-wave range at a range up to 5,000 kilometers.
