MOSCOW, January 8 (Itar-Tass) — The radio-technical units of the Russian Aerospace Defence Troops will put into service about 20 new radars of various modifications this year.
“The radars Gamma-S, Nebo-U, Podlet-K and advanced all-altitude detectors will come into service,” spokesman for the Russian Aerospace Defence Troops Col. Alexei Zolotukhin told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
“The modernized radar systems Desna, Kasta and etc will enter service as well,” he added.
The radar is an all-altitude detector, which is designed for the detection, automatic spotting, tracing, selecting the targets and giving the target commands to the air defence systems in the whole scope of altitudes (at small, middle and high altitudes). In 2012 the radio-technical regiments of the Aerospace Defence Troops, which support the air defence systems in the Moscow air defence zone, received six all-altitude detectors, he said.
