New radar "Sky-UM" covered the southern direction

In the Rostov region, a new three-coordinate radar station of medium and high altitudes "Nebo-UM" took up combat duty, covering the southern direction. This was reported by the press service of the Southern Military District.


The new radar will significantly increase the ability to detect a variety of air targets, including low-flying and low-reflective targets. The three-coordinate radar station of medium and high altitudes "Nebo-UM" continues the series of radar systems "Nebo-U" with a changed composition of equipment, made on a new element base

- said in a statement.

Radar "Sky-UM" refers to stations of medium and high altitude standby mode. The radar is capable of equally effectively detecting and tracking both dynamic (aircraft and cruise missiles) and ballistic (ICBM warheads) targets. It is noted that the station equipment allows not only to detect and track targets, but also to determine their nationality. After that, the information is transmitted to the command post or to the operators of the anti-aircraft complexes. In addition, the station is capable of detecting electronic warfare sources and transmitting their coordinates to combat crews for further destruction.

As noted in the Southern Military District, in total in 2020, the district received 8 new and modernized radar stations, including Sky-UM, Podlet-K1, RLS39N6 and Desna. In addition, the Terek radar station, as well as a number of altimeters, underwent a deep modernization at the MIC plant. In the near future, all stations will take up combat duty.

    Cool machine!
    Meter range.
    Two "sticks" are vertical exactly AFU station P-12.
    However, there are eleven times more elements.
    Well, the AFD from the P-12 is never AFAR.

      The main thing is that any "Stealth" sees it as a native and can give target designation immediately in 3D.

      A kind gift for the Turks and others like them!

        It won't reach Turkey. From the south, I think, no further than Krasnodar. It will cover the sky from the west, Bandera Ukraine.

      Old. Development of 1987.
      But comparing it with the P-12 is too much. The P-12 has been in service since 1953, you would compare it with the Redoubt.

        Rather P-18 on steroids. He served on such (both the 12th and 18th), 79-81 years of the last century. The development is really old, if about the very principle of construction. And yet, it is still being produced. It stands at almost every more or less large airfield (in one form or another / model). The electronics, of course, are most likely refurbished. However, there is such a design that there is nowhere to particularly improve it, except for the controls and some kind of tricky impulse tuning modes from interference. All the improvements in performance characteristics of similar ones are only a linear increase in the power of the transmitter and the size of the emitter. The main thing here is the meter range (there is a lot of space on the ground), this is an "analog" radar, which shows a direct object on the indicator, and not some "digital" map. And yes, all these stealths against her are like a bare ass to a hedgehog.))

    I wonder how, if it refers to stations of medium and high altitudes?
    Or illiterate "humanitarians" work in the prescentre of the district troops, like those who draw news about " supersonic anti-aircraft lasers "?

      Well, if the "central" press service of the Ministry of Defense manages to teleport ships located in the north to the Black Sea - what to expect from the district press service? smile

      The question is actually interesting. Indeed, the utilization factor of the radio horizon in the meter range is less than dm. and even more so see the ranges. But at the same time, the power of the reflected signals from local surface objects is an order of magnitude less, and the frequency stability and, accordingly, the ability to suppress these reflections, on the contrary, is much better. Therefore, paradoxically, meter stations have always detected and accompanied low-altitude targets no worse than radars specially designed for this, and mountain conditions are so much better.

        In this case, the radar "m" range when working on low-altitude targets are blind, from the south and east there are high-rise buildings in the capital of the Southern Federal District of Rostov-on-Don. But it allows you to view the sky from the side of the square and control the air situation in the LPR.
        As for the mountain conditions, this is provided that it is located on a flat area S1x1 km at the very top. For these purposes, there are other types of radar "cm" range.
