Russian Voronezh-DM long range anti-missile radar stations are the latest generation of early warning radars which monitor Russian airspace for ballistic missile attacks
     
Within the next five years we plan to produce and put into service similar stations at other designated locations, covering the entire Russian territory with a continuous radar field,” Col. Oleg Stepanov said.

According to previous reports, new radar stations of the Voronezh class will be located in east Siberia's Krasnoyarsk Territory, in south Siberia’s Altai Republic and in the Orenburg region in south Urals.

The Voronezh-DM (77Ya6-DM) works in the decimeter range (UHF) and was designed by NPK NIIDAR. It has a range of 6,000 km and is capable of simultaneously tracking 500 objects.
