The 64L6 Gamma-S1 is a mobile, planar array 3D radar. The radar comprises the M1 vehicle, mounting a phased-array antenna with an integral turntable, a transceiver and a ground radar interrogator.

The 64L6 Gamma-S1 radar is designed to acquire and track a wide spectrum of up-to-date and prospective air threats, including air launched missiles, in conditions of natural clutter and electronic countermeasures, to operate as part of air force/air defence automated command and control systems, non-automated units and rapid reaction forces, as well as to transmit data to automated control posts and civil aviation air traffic control facilities. The radar can classify single targets, such as aircraft, missiles and decoys, by their signatures.

The Gamma-S1E is an all-weather radar operating in various climates at temperatures between -50°C and +50°C, in relative humidity totaling 98%, wind speed equaling up to 25 m/s and above-sea altitude amounting to 2,000 m. The radar is fitted with automated testing/monitoring equipment, air conditioning, automatic fire-alarm and fire extinguishing systems, other technical support assets.

The radar comprises the M1 vehicle, a 6x6 all-terrain truck chassis BAZ-690921, mounting a phased-array antenna with an integral turntable, a transceiver and a ground radar interrogator; the M2 vehicle, mounting control, signal processing, data display, recording/print out facility, communications and data link equipment; and the M3 vehicle, carrying spare parts, tools and accessories set; as well as two electric power plants in trailers, towed by M1 and M2 vehicles.

Provision is made for a four-operator remote control facility to control the radar from a distance of up to 1 km via a fibre-optic line or from 15km-distance - via a radiolink.
