The Gamma-С1 digital radar station (RLS) has stepped on combat duty to control airspace in the Kirov region, the press service of the Central Military District (CER) reports.

Digital radar "Gamma-S1" took up combat duty in the Kirov region

The equipment entered the state defense order for the armament of the radio engineering troops (RTV) of the Central Military District
- it is told in the message of military department

Gamma-C1 radar is designed to control airspace with a viewing range of 10 to 300 km. Detects and accompanies a wide class of modern and promising air attack weapons, including aviation rockets under electronic suppression. It ensures the automatic issuance of track information about objects to the duty aviation forces. The calculation is three people, the deployment time does not exceed 40 minutes, the press release said.

It is also noted that daily CTV TsVO "conduct radar control of the airspace of 29 subjects of the Russian Federation, tracking the movement of more than 500 aircraft, of which around the state border 200.

      On January 12, 2018, the second new divisional S-400 Triumph anti-aircraft missile system set will take up combat duty in the Crimea in Sevastopol and will control airspace over Chongar and Armenian on the border with Ukraine,

    ... I think a useful thing in terms of controlling the "air" and therefore will work for the good ...

    the more different radars we have - different ranges, the more complicated our air defense map is, opener which will have to spend a lot of time, which will result in unacceptable losses of IOS

    It seems that our airspace survey has become layered in the main directions, and this is timely, because even Bandera people intended to use drones against Russia. What actually was already on the border of Belgorod and Kharkov regions.

    Nothing changes!
    The head of the radar will also be a car mechanic. Only in a trailer means cheap, but we do not need cheap stuff.

    How many different radars are already in our aircraft ??? Of course, it pleases that the sky of the Motherland is becoming safer, but there are so many different techniques ..... or it is specially done and each radar operates in its own ranges.

    Judging by the photo, the radar can work as part of the S-400. To protect vital centers, you can create quite interesting things. We have an object of protection, transport infrastructure (usually present) and dominant heights. At one time, sludge deadlocks were built for the BZHRK, something like this can be arranged at the prevailing heights, if their remoteness does not exceed 700m. from existing paths. Accordingly, such an additional locator should have properties that are not available to soil relatives.
    The lifting mechanism is equipped with two platforms. Standard with radar and specialized with a laser locator. LE - completion of a laser locator that participated in the Terra project.

    Advantages over soil. The radar can be raised to a great height. The laser locator is able to see any targets. Stealth technologies do not work against him. The range of LE-1 at the Sary-Shagan range was 400 km. which is quite suitable for the S-400. To suppress such a locator is a rather problematic task, so the fat body will have to be hidden in the cliffs.
    A huge disadvantage of such a locator is its high energy intensity, but this problem is completely solvable on a railway carrier. Of course, natural phenomena such as rain, snow, fog reduce the detection range, but they are not allies of aviation either. In case of severe weather deterioration, on-site calculation changes the platform and uses the standard radar.
