Not sure how it will do that at 10 km either, or against targets that have low heat emissions in the first place, like drones. These arent new technologies. SAAB also does not disclose the FCS of RBS-70 (which is somewhat simpler than Sosna), but they clearly state that the system is unjammable. 16 hours ago, LoooSeR said: Sosna launching missiles will have significant UV signature and will get into sector of laser turrets suppression/dazzling. This still works like a DIRCM, but on a larger area (and I have to say, quite smart design!). This still cant affect guidance since the receiver unit is on the rear of the missile. Anyway. Here is the site of KB Tochmash, it is horribly translated to english, but still has useful information: "8. EOCS has increased jamming immunity due to using information channels with narrow fields of sight and application of special signals processing algorithms in the automatic control unit of target acquisition and tracking considering the target signatures. Besides, it is impossible to distort laser spot beam rider guidance or to flash an optoelectronic sensor of a flying missile by the similar laser beam." Additionally, there is a semiautomatic mode, when the system is controlled by the operator (just like RBS-70). http://kbtochmash.com/press-eng/articles-eng/articles-eng_4.html 17 hours ago, LoooSeR said: 20 seconds is sometimes enough to get out of sight for low-flying object, especially if area have trees or other objects around launching platform like buildings. I highly doubt. Around 20-25 secons is the maximum time for engagement, and it is the absolute worst case for the SAM. If the target is approaching, or if the system launches the missile in the NEZ, the time is considerably shorter. Average speed of the missile is 600m/s, thats 6km for 10 seconds. Such short time is enough only for some very basic evasive maneuver, nothing more. And remember, these missiles are quite hard to evade. For the old 9M311 of the Tunguska, max overload of the missile is 18gs. To give some idea, the old 3M9 missile of the Kub was capable of 15g maneuvers. In practice, this was notoriously hard to evade for strike aircrafts, loaded with weapons. And even if the aircraft is successful, its mission is still over, so the SAM did its work.
