The Russian military explained the reason for the delivery of the Oko-3 ground penetrating radar to the Khmeimim base in Syria

25

The Russian military explained the reason for the delivery of a georadar to the Khmeimim military base in the Syrian Arab Republic. We are talking about the Oko-3 system, which is designed for soil research.


In particular, the GPR is capable of detecting voids in the ground, which makes it possible to use it to detect possible undermines.

According to the deputy chief of the engineering troops of the Russian contingent in Syria, Lieutenant Colonel Pavel Reutsky, this kind of undermining can be created by militants to carry out sabotage actions. In different parts of Syria, militants of various groups used just such tactics to commit terrorist acts or to transfer weapons closer to one or another object with the aim of its subsequent shelling from a minimum distance. For example, this kind of action was carried out against the posts and bases of the Syrian government army.

The Oko-3 system is capable of detecting voids not only in soil layers, but also in other environments, for example, in concrete. The use of such a georadar is capable of disrupting any plan of the militants to conduct the so-called tunnel war.



Some characteristics of the GPR: it is capable of detecting voids at a depth of 50 m, operates at temperatures up to 55 degrees Celsius, has a screen for displaying GPR profiles, provides for the connection of a navigation unit that allows you to accurately track the coordinates of voids in the ground. Data scanning can be carried out both in planar mode and in 3D. It can work remotely by connecting a radio modem.

    A very competent decision, it is strange that it was not there initially.

      The same question came up on reading, but as the saying goes, better late than never. It has such a good feature for Syria that you can use it from an armored car without leaving it.

      In principle, it is impossible to foresee everything. Therefore, everything is decided by the possibility of threats. Since it was just now that they brought it in, the threats have intensified. Apparently the intelligence spotted some sort of swarming.

        So he is in Syria, I suspect, not only at the base would be useful.

          And where else?) Look for tunnels near each checkpoint?) The point is not in finding it, but in constant monitoring. Although I'm sure there are sensors around the perimeter, like Tabun. Digging will be spotted quickly. Fig knows in short

            There below, in the comment, options for its use are described.
            Records with weapons and medicines, for example, to detect.

              In order to detect something, you need to monitor it constantly. Literally every day. I'm talking about that. One complex is not enough for this. Plus, I repeat that our aircraft have been using seismic sensors for a very long time, even at the level of reconnaissance groups. I am silent about the bases.

              Such a machine is needed in every department dealing with IRD, as well as a nonlinear locator.

              To provide engineering reconnaissance at a speed of 3 km / h, from mines at a distance of up to 100 meters from the road (anti-aircraft) and fire weapons up to 2 km (SWR or automatic cannon 20-23 mm).

      Yes, I think I was. Or there was an analogue. And the article looks like an ad. However, the thing is useful if used correctly.

    A good thing in general, in principle, in the national economy, and not only in military affairs.
    I put it on a pickup truck and go around exploring the necessary areas ... I wonder if such a ground penetrating radar is capable of detecting IEDs and minefields and minefields, as well as buried metal structures.
    It would be nice for archaeologists to work with such a device.

      This is how they work. True, this is not yet the standard standard equipment for each field team.

      Of course it can, but not for long, 100% detection guarantee

    It looks like the main purpose is to study the condition of the runways.

    less than 6 years have passed, finally began to use on the base !? You can also advise placing 3D lidars around the base perimeter, or even better, screw it to the Armor with the second channel for detecting subtle and low-flying small targets, for its optical sighting complex, though expensive - these are all "pribluda", active quantum optics winked , but the war will write off everything, from the budget of the great country of the Future !!!

      In hindsight, everyone is smart. In Shashlykistan, representatives of the "civilized country" of North America laid technological roads along the glacier, and used it until the bulldozer fell inward, into the ice cavity by 27 meters. Then the georadar was brought, you guessed it!
      He moved it along the ice slopes, engineers painted the insides of the glacier. It was 20 years or more ago.

    In general, there is such a system in the RF Aerospace Forces, which brings down everything that is at a depth of 300 meters ... Really everything. That's all for now.

      There is no such system. And even up to 300 meters ..... There is Zheleznogorsk near Krasnoyarsk, there is a lot of things under the mountain, even an electric train runs !!!! Neither from the top nor through the entrance can be taken with bombs ... hi

    That's right, you need to acquaint the barmaley with the classics.
    About how many wonderful discoveries
    Preparing georadar "Oka" ...
    By the way, archaeologists will be delighted with the possible results of using GPR.

    Before that, the perimeter of the base underground was not controlled?
