MOSCOW, October 20 /TASS/. The United Instrument Corporation, which is part of the Rostec Company, will present a newly-designed Forpost radar at the INTERPOLITEX-2014 exhibition opening in Moscow on Tuesday, the corporation source told TASS on Monday.
The Forpost radar is an all-round system capable of detecting moving objects at a distance of up to 20 kilometers. The range resolution and the minimal distance between two neighboring fixed objects are 30 centimeters, Alexander Kalinin, department director at the United Instrument Corporation, said.
The new radar has been designed to detect ground, overwater and low-flying objects. It can track down at least 50 targets simultaneously and can detect border trespassers at a distance of 20 kilometers. Besides, adaptive detection algorithms have been built into the radar for automatic adjustment of changes in background images caused by growing grass in spring or fallen snow in winter. Previously, it took experts 20 days to solve the task.
"By comparison, Israeli systems have a maximum range of 6-8 kilometers. German-designed radars have almost the same maximum distance as our radar systems. But their range resolution is much worse,” Viktor Plyushchev, the deputy general designer of the Vega concern, said.
“Their range resolution is not 30 cm but 5m. Our ray has 60,000 range distance elements in one direction compared 6,000-8,000 in Israeli and German radars. Consequently, they cannot cover such a huge area simultaneously,” Plyushchev said.
The Forpost radar has already passed all test trials and is ready for batch production.
