Russian Aerospace Defense Force will be equipped with dozens of new radars this year.
The Russian Aerospace Defense Force will add dozens of radars this year, a force spokesman said Wednesday, January 8, 2013. The list includes six Nebo-M active electronically scanned arrays (AESA) and a mix of 23 Podlyot low-altitude and Sopka medium- and high-altitude radars, the spokesman told journalists.
     
The Russian Aerospace Defense Force will add dozens of radars this year, a force spokesman said Wednesday, January 8, 2013. The list includes six Nebo-M active electronically scanned arrays (AESA) and a mix of 23 Podlyot low-altitude and Sopka medium- and high-altitude radars, the spokesman told journalists.
The RLM-D component of the Nebo-M-radar is a derivative of the L-band Protivnik-G/GE-series radar.
     

An unspecified number of modernized Kasta and Desna radars is also on the list.

The Aerospace Defense Force also plans to add a regiment of S-400 Triumph air defense missile systems in 2014, the force’s commander Alexander Golovko said earlier.

The force will also prioritize deployment of Voronezh-M early warning radars in Orenburg Region in the Urals and Siberia’s Altai and Krasnoyarsk regions, Golovko said.

Last year, the Russian military added about 20 radars of different classes and modifications, including Gamma-S, Nebo-U and Podlyot-K.

The Nebo radar is designed to automatically detect, measure co-ordinates of and track a wide range of modern airborne platforms, including strategic and tactical aircraft, ASALM-type air-launched missiles, ballistic targets such as small-size hypersonic cruise missiles warheads, low-observable targets, in particular those embodying stealth technology; to identify targets as friend or foe; to detect active ECM threats; to transfer radar surveillance data to automated control systems, and to display individual and flight-related information at the radar's workstations.

The Gamma radar is designed to acquire and track a wide spectrum of up-to date and prospective air threats, including airl aunched 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.
