Greece has deployed Israeli technology to jam the flight capability of Turkish UAVs electronically. The jamming hopes to interfere with UAV's existing flight plan stored in memory to disorient the UAV. The goal is to "blind" threatening drones, preventing them from completing their mission.

 

It is essentially a version of an anti-UAV system with features similar to Israel's Drone Dome but tailored to the needs of Greece and the geographical terrain of the islands and other border areas.

 

 Details of the program have been leaked in recent weeks, much to the government's chagrin, raising the issue of classified information linked to friendly country cooperation and infrastructure critical to national security.

The same newspaper previously wrote another exclusive news on this subject in February 2022. In that news, there was information that Turkish-made Armed UAVs threatened Greek security and that studies were started. Accordingly, the Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs held a meeting with the Ministry of Defence on 20 December 2021. The news reported that the Greek Air and Naval Forces recorded and mapped the pattern of Bayraktar TB2 and Anka-S.
