Russia has developed a new radar module capable of detecting small targets

33

The Russian military may be armed with a new radar module capable of detecting flying targets the size of a sheet of A4 paper. The novelty was developed in the Tula JSC "Central Design Bureau of Apparatus".


According to the deputy chief of the air defense forces and aviation ZVO Colonel Viktor Pigarev, the military has already tested a new experimental module and highly appreciated the novelty. During the tests, he confirmed the inherent characteristics for the detection of small planes and helicopters and drones the size of a standard A4 sheet of paper. Currently, the issue of putting the module into service is being addressed.

The radar module itself with AFAR is part of the target detection station. According to the developers, the module is easily integrated into the work of the automated control and target designation systems already in service, as well as promising models.

During the tests, the new module was able to detect a small-sized drone flying at an ultra-low altitude, after which it transmitted information through the automated control system to the Pantsir-S1 anti-aircraft complex. As a result of the interaction of the detection station and the air defense missile system, the target was destroyed.

(...) after being adopted, this development, due to its efficiency and economy, will significantly improve the low-altitude radar field (...)

- said Pigarev.

    Dear editors, what does a photo of a certain American serviceman have to do with the article?

      So a drone to be detected and then destroyed, someone has to launch)

      What does a photo of an American soldier have to do with the article?

      A potential client of the new development of TsKBA, for clarity, the dimensions of the A4 format in the photo are not enough, is that better? bully

        So much better, good fresh thought. It is a pity that we did not catch everything the author's idea was.

      By the way, what is "ultra-low altitude"?
      Is it at the knee level or at the level of the coal boiler pipe?

        If I'm not mistaken, 30 m is an extremely low height)).

        Ultra low? I do not know! And I heard about ultra-small .. extremely low heights! Ultra-low heights begin, somewhere below 150 m ...

          - MV - low altitude - below 900 meters above flat terrain, PMV - extremely low altitude - below 200 m above flat terrain.
          There are no "ultra-low" and ultra-small ", this is journalistic chatter.

            From the aviators themselves I heard the expression: "extremely low heights ..." ... And "ultra-low heights" I often met in articles even in "paramilitary" magazines!

                      Here you can’t do anything: magazine whores like to use foreign-sounding words, because it seems to them that they have leaned (at least in detail) against foreign-language media.

      Judging by the article, he is for air defense. If it is really small, you can put it on "Derivation-Air Defense" to destroy the UAB.

    And what is meant by A4 sheet? Its area? This is about 0,06m2, probably this is a small RCS, but objects with such RCS and other radars can detect, here the question is in the detection range.

      Considering the thickness of A4 sheet, the EPR can be much less laughing .

      This is about 0,06m2, probably a small EPR
      Hmm, now let's see how small and small this value is, for example:
      (an interesting study, there are Norwegians - on small drones, such as a quadcopter, https://www.astrosoft.ru/articles/radar/analiz-epr-mini-drona-polnyy-analiz-drona/)

      A bit of theory, specifically for the surface:
      - the formula for calculating the RCS of a rectangular plate with sides b and h located perpendicular to the sounding direction: σmax = 4 π b2 h2 / λ2 (2s are squares)!
      so:
      poultry (average RCS, for X-band): 0,01 mXNUMX;
      person: 1 sq.m .;
      passenger car: 100 sq.m .;
      truck: 200 sq.m .;
      moreover, if all objects, except for birds and humans, consist of metal alloys ...
      then - 0,06 sq.m, not bad enough, especially if the UAV still has propeller blades, as in the study I gave at the beginning in parentheses ...

    Or have you not yet decided whether this radar module is needed or not?

    Amusing presentation of information.
    It seems they boasted, but it is not clear what.
    What is a "paper-sized goal"? There is a standard concept of RCS of a target. If it is 0.06 sq. then this is not a record at all.
    Again, at what distance can it detect? 100 meters or 10 kilometers?
    Well, yes, what about the weight and dimensions of this module? A ton, two, maybe a 9-storey building?

    ... Who would have doubted that against any stealth there is a DARK EYE!
    What are the prospects for both .... yes, about the same! Cloaking technologies will be improved, and detection / control technologies will be improved against them.

      - In Russia, so far the radars for detecting inconspicuous targets are too large to be installed on mobile air defense systems of the Pantsir, Buk, Tor types. And this really requires urgent correction, - as shown by their wild swotting in Nagorno-Karabakh.

        Suppose, while no one can boast that an anti-aircraft missile is straight from the start, at a long distance, capable of detecting and guiding a small target .... guidance is carried out in several stages. Ali did I miss something?
        And the conflict in Karabakh showed that one must always work with brains, from and to, and nothing more.
