Preventing airstrikes: radio scouts need assistance

Preventing airstrikes: radio scouts need assistance

Military always put much effort in preventing enemy airstrikes. Since the World War I, military engineers have been using assorted sophisticated equipment to forestall the time and direction of approaching enemy bombers units. Before the science reached certain level and radars were deployed for reconnaissance, military of the past often used quite weird devices like huge sound concentrators or gigantic ear trumpets. We have already wrote about these devices in this material.

The Britons proceeded even further: they were going to erect an entire complex of enormous acoustic mirrors. Actually, they managed to build them only he south and northeast coasts of England: the system of gloomy still impressive concrete “ears” was providently looking toward the hideout of the potential enemy, to continental Europe from where Britain was later attacked by Hitler’s airborne flotilla.

Today intelligence officers who protect a country’s borders against the enemy air attacks, are equipped with the latest devices. Services of anti-aircraft defense are watching the horizon using radars and other gear. While the job radio scouts do is rather a forward-looking one: they can detect enemy aircraft not at the point of their appearance in the sky but much earlier, when the air all of a sudden comes alive and filled with encrypted transmissions, when the enemy is about to start combat deployment, when airborne groups go re-formatted, and separate aircraft units are transferred from one airfield to another. All these are the signs that enable radio scouts to foreknow and calculate future acts of aggression on the part of our greedy eastern neighbor to avoid catching our troops off guard by enemy air raids in case of their massive attack.

Above we described the responsibilities of the army unit whose servicemen are engaged in watching radio space. These guys are monitoring the enemy’s activities day and night, recording the slightest moves of their aviation and troops over the territories adjoining the Ukrainian border. The radio scouts applied to People’s Project asking to help them with certain equipment that the state failed to provide them with for unknown reason. We have already sent them video surveillance systems: today the tireless all-seeing cameras proved quite useful in organizing the system of perimeter defense which allowed to exclude manning the posts. Still the question of voltage inverters remains open. These devices are necessary to maintain the system of uninterrupted power supply as our military have to connect to the field power grid with rather unstable current, voltage fluctuations and frequent drops leading to equipment failure and excessive repairs.

These are power communications our radio reconnaissance relies upon today

The war is still on, so it would be too early to contemplate on its soon victorious end. To say that that the occupier has turned down its aggressive plans as regards Ukraine and has capitulated; and, as the result of peaceful proposals and economic sanctions initiated by the international community, the aggressor is getting prepared for inevitable punishment for its military crimes, supporting terrorism, initiating and fueling new bloody conflicts all over the world, – would be absolutely naïve. That is why we are urging you to help. The expenses on this particular purchase is rather small, but the equipment has great strategic value: it enables preventing the aggressor’s hostile plans in case of serious confrontation and thus facing the enemy armed at al points and fully prepared. Dear friends, please join in by all means – the big green button below is designed to serve this very reason!
