MOSCOW, May 04 /ITAR-TASS/. Five advanced radar stations called “All-Altitude Detector” were brought into service of the radio-technical regiments of the Russian Aerospace Defence Troops which are on combat duty for air defence of Russia’s capital, Moscow, and the central industrial district from the start of this year, Defence Ministry’s spokesman for Aerospace Defence Troops Col Aleksey Zolotukhin told Itar-Tass on Sunday.
New radar stations can detect simultaneously more than 100 targets, including airplanes, helicopters, remote-controlled aircrafts and missiles at a distance of up to 400 kilometres at low, middle and high altitudes of up to 100 kilometres, he noted.
“Radar station called “All-Altitude Detector” is designed to survey detection zones, for autoacquisition, selection of targets to give target indication to air defence systems and detect state belongingness of targets,” the colonel added.
As autonomic target marking systems new radar stations are also integrated in air defence missile systems S-400 Triumf which air defence regiments of the Aerospace Defence Troops are armed with, Zolotukhin noted.
“More than ten new radar systems of different modifications will be delivered to radio-technical units and formations of the Aerospace Defence Troops this year, including radar stations and systems Gamma-S, Nebo-U, Podlet-K and radar station titled ‘All-Altitude Detector’,” the colonel said.
Upgraded radar systems Desna, Kasta will also come into service of radio-technical detachments of the Aerospace Defence Troops this year, Zolotukhin added.
