The development of the Infauna began in 2005 and was completed in 2009. This year, it was planned to complete the factory testing with a first production schedule to begin 2010. In 2011 the first vehicle was ready to deliver to the Russian army. In January 2012, four vehicles Infauna were delivered to the Russian airborne units of electronic warfare. There is no foreign equivalent of the “Infauna”.

Equipment
The Infauna equipment set includes the traditional tools of electronic warfare systems for jamming and communication management, and also opto-electronic equipment.
Design and protection
The Infauna electronic warfare communication complex vehicle is based on a modified chassis of the wheeled armoured vehicle personnel carrier BTR-80 named K1SH1 (version UNSh-12). The turret of the standard BTR-80 is removed to be replaced by a big antenna which is used for jamming. The middle part of the hull is larger and higher than the standard BTR-80 to accommodate equipment and military personnel. The front of the hull has four hatches, and single door is mounted to each side center of the hull. The hull provides a protection against small arms firing and shell splinters. The standard equipment of Infauna includes NBC protection system and night vision.
Propulsion
As the standard BTR-80, the Infauna is motorized with a YaMZ-238M2 V-8 turbocharged diesel engine developing 240 hp coupled to a manual transmission with 5 forward and 1 reverse gears. The vehicle can run at a maximum road speed of 80 km/h with a maximum range of 600 km.
Combat use
The main tasks of the Infauna vehicle is the protection of road, combat vehicles and personnel against radio-controlled mines and explosive devices, and providing jamming against radio communication systems of enemy at the battalion level. The Infauna can produce aerosol interference which is used for protection against high precision weapons with laser and video-management systems.
