In the Latvian army entered the TPS-77 MRR multifunctional radar to monitor the airspace. This was reported by the publication of the Ministry of Defense of Latvia Sargs.lv. Latvian Armed Forces have already conducted a test test


In Latvia, tested the new American radar


The country's defense minister, Raymond Bergmanis, said that the multifunctional radar that had arrived in the Latvian army would strengthen surveillance of the airspace.

The purchase of radar will make a great contribution to strengthening the combat effectiveness and modernization of the National Armed Forces, allowing you to adequately respond to the modern threats that NATO countries face. Observing low flights and identifying targets is a vital part of protecting Latvian airspace. Modern technology allows you to connect a multifunctional locator with radar systems worldwide
- quotes the press service of the Ministry of Defense of the words of the Minister Raymond Bergmanis.

Latvia will purchase three TPS-77 MRR radars, manufactured by Lockheed Martin, a military-industrial corporation, the corresponding agreement was signed in October 2015, RIA reports News

Health care is tough, a 3-year-old child has a temperature of 40, they can’t be knocked down, we call an ambulance, and they say we won’t be able to help, try it yourself or go to the children's hospital there in the order of priority, where everyone is sitting with fractures, wounds, infections .

      They will watch and rejoice before the moment of the explosion, what cool American equipment they have.
      At the end of the 70's, I dragged my younger brother out of a business trip by Sharp, a two-cassette player, and after a month of his youth and stupidity, he turned his head off. So for two years I did not say anything. Sharpe stood around the cassette scattered around - as if he had just turned it off. My nerves were safe - it was a shame to admit .....
      So these - they will sit, watch and quietly (or loudly) rejoice at what cool equipment they have. Though useless ....

      But it must be borne in mind that the Baltic airspace surveillance system, aka BaltNet, is integrated into the air defense of Western Europe. If no information comes from the Baltic radars, they will begin the countdown. Those who muddied this harlot have clearly calculated: if an air strike comes from the east, then the radars in the Baltic states will “cover” first of all

    Latvia will purchase three TPS-77 MRR radars

    Currently, the Latvian Air Force as part of the airspace control squadron already has two AN / TPS-77 radars, purchased under a 2007 contract worth $ 44 million and deployed at radar stations in the areas of Kala (Ventspils) and Lielvard, as well as one more In 2003, the radar was a fully stationary version of AN / FPS-117 at a radar station in the Audrini area. In the summer of 2015, Lockheed Martin signed a contract for the repair and modernization of the Latvian AN / FPS-117 radar.

        hi ... healthy. About EPR hardly
        The towed radar AN / TPS-77, developed by Lockheed Martin on the basis of the AN / FPS-117 radar, is designed to detect air targets at ranges up to 400 km and altitudes up to 30 km. This three-coordinate pulsed-Doppler radar of the L-band (1,215-1,4 GHz) provides the air defense systems with data on azimuth, altitude and distance to the target, including in difficult weather conditions and in the conditions of electronic countermeasures. AN / TPS-77 allows you to perform airspace control and air traffic control tasks. The TPS-77 mobile radar provides continuous high-quality detection of air targets at a distance of up to 250 nautical miles (400 km) at altitudes up to 30 km. The radar provides the stable delivery of anti-aircraft defense data to the distance to the object, azimuth and altitude of the target under adverse weather conditions and exposure to electromagnetic interference. The radar can be transported by truck and deployed within 30 minutes. The estimated operational life of the station is 15 years.

          Statements of the Latvian military department about the "strategic range" of the radar are slightly exaggerated. The instrumental target detection range with an EPR of more than 5 m2 does not exceed 470 km, and small-sized targets of the MiG-35 type do not exceed 300 km. This radar operates in the D / L-band of decimeter waves (lower frequencies of DM waves) with a frequency of 1,22 to 1,4 GHz, therefore AN / TPS-77 is an exclusively surveillance system that can provide only early detection and tracking of airborne objects.

          The reliability of the radar is confirmed by the use of AFAR with an aperture area of ​​27,1 m2. The time between failures is more than 2000 hours. Compared to our Opponent-G DRLA radar, the accuracy of the American AN / TPS-77 is 35% lower, so at a distance of 250 km, the Opponent-G determines the coordinates of the target’s height with an accuracy of +/- 628 m, and AN / TPS-77 - +/- 920 m. At the same time, the American radar has a ceiling for detecting targets of only 30500 m, and Opponent-G "looks" into a low Earth orbit up to 200 km high.

          This is possible due to the more advanced design of the flat headlamp "Opponent-G" in comparison with the planar AFAR of the American station. Our radar uses a phase synthesis of 20 rays of the cosec2 type, while the American one uses a simple pencil ray that can deviate up to +20 degrees in elevation scanning mode while the 5H69 Opponent-G looks up to + 60 degrees in elevation. That is, the “field of view" of AN / TPS-77 and the viewing height are much lower than those of our radars, and therefore, all air attack tools located above 30 km or above the viewing angle of the American radar at 20 degrees are not detected can be a serious threat in the absence of additional radars in the risk zone.

                As I wrote above, the problem is that the airspace surveillance system is integrated into the air defense of Western Europe, all the information immediately goes through Zokniay to the west. A sort of early warning line
                And there are no active means of air defense in Latvia, we don’t consider Bofors guns

    The Latvian army itself is of course nothing and three radars for her as a dead poultice. But these three radars are integrated into a single NATO airspace control system and are another brick of a unified system for monitoring the situation and commanding the alliance’s troops, which will require additional efforts to neutralize ... That's how a little network around our borders and weaves - along the battalion, by radar, by air link ... So you can laugh as much as you like and throw hats, and then at one moment you will find a powerful control network and infrastructure for deployment along the entire border and waiting for the arrival of transports with large forces ... And then only a hat is not enough, and smiling will become inappropriate ...
