MOSCOW, February 19. /TASS/. The Russian Aerospace Defense Forces (ADF) have launched the deployment of the new Nebo-M radar system, ADF spokesman Colonel Alexey Zolotukhin told journalists on Thursday.
The radar system is capable of detecting small aerodynamic and hypersonic targets, he added. Such systems are notable for a significantly increased operational range and high rates of updating data on ballistic and hypersonic targets.
"The use of active phased array antennas improves the characteristics of target detection and tracking," Zolotukhin noted.
The number of operational personnel has been reduced twice after the introduction of digital automatic data processing and the system’s ability to determine the target’s class and other technical characteristics, he added.
Calculations for the radar systems are carried out in the Center for training personnel of Anti-Aircraft Missile Troops at the Military and Space Academy. From 2013, about 250 people have been trained to operate Nebo-M.
This year, four radar systems Nebo-M and Nebo-UM will become operational in the Eastern Military District, particularly in Zabaykalsky, Khabarovsk and Primorsky Krai.
