Operating in the 20 to 2500 MHz band the Garant is a wide-band barrage jamming system with a total output power of 230 W and a radio suppression distance of 75 to 5000 metres, depending on the parameters of the suppressed link.
Barrage jamming is most effective when operating against frequency-agile transmitters or simultaneously jamming several transmitters, but the ability to generate high power over a wide band of frequencies comes at a high price in terms of cost, weight, and size.
This can be spot jamming - identifying the signal to be jammed and tuning the jamming generator to the correct frequency - or barrage jamming - operating over a wide band of frequencies rather than at discrete frequencies.
