Military Review

The Russian military showed the "Monolith" radar from the inside

44

During the events of 2014, which later became known as the Crimean Spring, the Russian military, using the Monolith multifunctional radar station, discovered the American destroyer Donald Cook of the Arleigh Burke project in the Black Sea approaching the peninsula. When the US Navy warship realized they had been spotted and targeted, they had to change course.


Recently, this equipment was examined by the journalists of the Zvezda TV channel, to whom the Russian military showed the Monolith radar station from the inside. During his visit and conversation with Sergei Piunovsky, the head of the sector of the Typhoon enterprise, which is the manufacturer of this equipment, he was removed plot for the transmission "Military acceptance".


Journalists note that this is the first filming made inside this surface and air reconnaissance complex. Even with a cursory glance, you can see how many diverse and complex techniques are inside.

There is so much equipment at the command post of the complex that eyes widen.

- the host of the program shared his impressions.

At the command post of the complex, five people are observing, who classify and accompany the detected targets.

The video also showed the radar antenna, which became legendary after the events of the Crimean Spring.

    A radar rotates under a cylindrical dome.
    It is strange that they did not make a conical tower with 4 AFARs.

      The complex is mobile. Four canvases will require more power (2-4 times) from the source than one rotating one. IMHO.

        4 AFAR canvases = 4 times the required power + 4 times the cost, while the ground-based anti-ship missile system does not need to accurately track targets in real time on all 4 sides, like an air defense

          What explanation is there - just a guess. In principle, you can imagine a mobile system with four canvases, connected in turn, but why fence such a vegetable garden? smile drinks

            As for the power consumption, this is true for the AFAR, for the PFAR the energy costs for the canvases will be small. Connect one by one, or not one by one, the power will still be supplied to all blades, otherwise the performance will be limited by the power switching time.

              On all canvases in the reception mode, yes, the costs are minimal, you can keep connected constantly. But for a radiator (a single one for PFAR or all elements of an AFAR), the input power must be the same. Physics cannot be fooled. And here everything depends on the power of the mobile power source.

                Not. Count for yourself. At AFAR, for example, power is supplied to 2 canvases, while at each moment of time only one web is actually involved, respectively, only one contributes to the radiated power, and the second, so to speak, is in the "hot standby", but it even consumes the power supply. In PFAR, almost all the power supply goes to one signal source, and to antennas only to phase-shifting elements.

      does not rotate under the hood
      it is not cylindrical

      just a bad angle
      the whole hood turns
      it does not have a circular view, it is an over-the-horizon radar, it works in a relatively narrow sector, so it does not need 4 canvases

          does not rotate for viewing around
          It just rotates, as can be seen in the video. Typical surveillance radar.

            this is an over-the-horizon radar. it makes no sense for her to control something in her deep rear.
            the antenna can be rotated 360 degrees, that's understandable.

              It does not matter whether it is over the horizon or not (we will not compare warm with soft). Any surveillance radar will rotate, although there are usually no targets in the rear.

                Zagorizontnaya has a blind zone near, so it can observe not in the rear, but in the deep rear.
                and it is not survey, but multifunctional.
                its main task is to search for surface targets and target designation for anti-ship missile complexes, in essence, it involves work in the sector.
                using his full rotation means overloading the station with unnecessary information

                  Surveillance radar can be multifunctional and vice versa. These are not mutually exclusive concepts! One of the operating modes of the multifunctional radar can be over-the-horizon, so there are no significant blind spots. Here is a similar ship surveillance radar with over-the-horizon operation: Mineral-ME1 Source: http://bastion-karpenko.ru/imds-2019-news-4/ VTS "BASTION" AVKarpenko.
                  Also keep in mind that land can be surrounded on all or most of the sides by the sea. wink

          May 24, 2014, if ITAR-TASS is not lying winked :
          American missile cruiser with universal missile weapon (URO) Vella Gulf, Ticonderoga class with Aegis system on board, entered the Black Sea. Itar-Tass was informed about this by a source in the military-diplomatic corps. "At about 18.30 Moscow time, the cruiser completed the passage of the strait zone of Turkey and entered the Black Sea"

        The AN / SPY-1 radar canvases are shown in the photo, and this is an air defense and missile defense radar. It is correct to compare it with the S-300 or S-400 radar. The analogue of the Monolith on Ticonderoga will be AN / SPS-49, the reflector of which can be seen in the photo in the upper left corner behind the mast

    I'll be cruel, but a good machine! But we, as our "daily bread", need AWACS aircraft, in sufficient quantity to cover such operations - once. The two need to have a space group capable of tracking the ships of potential enemies.

      We NEED a modern electronic industry !!! The system of training personnel from skilled workers to young, talented specialists who will be able to pick up and continue the work of our outstanding developers, designers of the Soviet school !!!

        I understand you very much. But. I remember how I saved up a few rubles to buy a book for myself in the Book World (I grew up without a father, there was little money in my family, I did not disdain to hand over bottles). I went to the reading room, spent hours redrawing radio diagrams from magazines ... And now I look at young people growing up, and I don't understand what we have done

          It happens, he himself, but the family is the basis of everything and we were not left alone, without help ... but we had to learn and work as a laboratory assistant. True, I inherited a good inheritance from my father, a lot of specialized literature and a full set of nishtyaks of a Soviet radio amateur! Then he himself with a mustache.
          But the knowledge, the skills obtained by your labor, remain with you forever !!! And it helped a lot in further service, work and life in general!
          Now I teach the younger generation everything that I know and can ... there are, there are talents and very enthusiastic boys !!! I hope they will not stop there, because they themselves are passionate about it, and I try to convey to them the basic knowledge and skills to the maximum, as much as they can master.
          Now this is the only way, if there is no way to find children's creativity circles ...

          That now, and so everything is automated to the maximum ... but, it is not always possible to transfer everything to automatic mode ... errors have a place to be. It is too early to discount the human brain, senses, intuition ... although, in some cases, intelligent machines replace humans almost completely ... where data analysis and the speed of decision-making are already beyond human capabilities.
