New radar stations will cover the Northern Sea Route from US and NATO aviation

The Russian Ministry of Defense is working on the issue of covering the Northern Sea Route with new radar stations in order to control the airspace along the entire length of the NSR. Recently, there has been a significant increase in flights aviation USA and NATO in the Arctic region.


Currently, several separate radio engineering companies equipped with radars are deployed along the Northern Sea Route. The military department plans to transform them into battalions with the prospect of deploying separate regiments. These units and units will be included in the 1st and 3rd air defense divisions of the 45th Army of the Air Force and Air Defense of the Northern fleet.

At the same time, these units will be saturated with new radars "Resonance-N", "Sky-M", "Sopka", as well as advanced radars capable of detecting all air targets, from missiles and aircraft to hypersonic weapons and drones. Details of the planned transformations were not disclosed.

As reported "News" citing military sources, at present, radar posts are deployed on the archipelagos of Franz Josef Land, Novaya Zemlya, Severnaya Zemlya, the New Siberian Islands, in the Tiksi region, on Wrangel Island and Cape Schmidt. For complete control of the skies over the Arctic, several more radars will be deployed along the Northern Sea Route.

It is noted that the United States is very much interested in the Northern Sea Route, which originally belongs to Russia. Moreover, the interest in it comes both from a military point of view and from an economic point of view. Although Washington does not officially dispute the ownership of the Northern Sea Route to Russia, it is already beginning to try to take possession of it. Just a couple of years ago, articles appeared in the Western media calling for the transfer of the Northern Sea Route under the control of "world society."

        Radar means of detection and not fire impact. The phrase should sound differently.

        Exactly. Taburetkin tried. He minimized expenses, optimized the composition, and sold, sold ... you can imagine that there on the North coast whole military towns were sold and sold at a price as if they were built in the center of Moscow. Naturally, everything fell into decay. Automatic radars were destroyed, and not only them. But then they found oil and gas. And again they began to revive the defense, build towns, return the army and navy.

          Back in 1990, we began to receive equipment from the north. Even then, entire towns and parts of the islands were destroyed. And in 1995 the last remnants went

      The "world community" is a collective image that the United States is trying to secure for itself, hiding behind various blocs, "sevens" and simply the threat of a financial and economic blockade.

      Not enough to in the territorial waters of the Russian Federation in the area of ​​the NSR, any underwater, aviation or some other enemy could not appear. Moreover, some hot American heads planned the landing of sabotage groups precisely across the rivers of Siberia.

    Spied on: "Sky-M" radar - all-round visibility from 10 to 600 km., In height up to 80 km., In azimuth - 360 degrees. Detects all aerial targets, including stealth and UAVs. Impressed!

      there would be ZGRLS useful but they seem to be poorly shine through the poles.
      I hope they will overcome it, for very good opportunities

        In Mordovia, this was built, in the plans for the construction of two more ...
        According to known data, the transmitting part of the "Container" is deployed near the town of Gorodets (Nizhny Novgorod Region), and the receiving antennas are operating near the town of Kovylkino (Mordovia). The prototype 29B6 is deployed in the central part of Russia; its position was chosen taking into account the "dead zone" of 900 km. From the chosen position, the complex is able to monitor the situation in the airspace of the countries of Eastern and Central Europe, Scandinavia and even the Middle East.
        According to current plans, in the foreseeable future, three more over-the-horizon 29B6 radars will be built and put on duty in different regions of Russia. The Nizhny Novgorod-Mordovian complex follows the western direction, three other stations will be responsible for the Arctic, East and South.

          The container, alas, does not work there, at the poles the ionosphere differs from other directions (aurora borealis, etc.).

    The Russian Ministry of Defense is working on the issue of covering the Northern Sea Route with new radar stations in order to control the airspace along the entire length of the NSR.

    And the Ministry of Defense can work out questions on the deployment of missile systems along the NSR of the type: "Answer" - "Hello, suddenly, out of nowhere, taken in the territorial waters of US nuclear submarines." The same one that "Marshal Shapleshnikov" experienced ... Can you imagine what training opportunities will be available to anti-submarine men. And the tragedy of "Kursk" may no longer be ...

    I just found those times when they destroyed all the radars in Chukotka in the early 90s, when anti-aircraft gunners were disbanded in batches and taken out :(
    It was a very miserable and sad sight.
    I think that the whole thing was destroyed not only in Chukotka, now it will have to be rebuilt for a lot of money.

      Andrey, I don't know how much it costs, but I think the West will "sponsor" us with its spot gas prices. wink

      On the Rybachiy peninsula, a lot of various non-ferrous and ferrous metals were thrown. And once there was a closed area. Not every figure could freely enter the area.

    This is good, but you also need a chain of coastal sonar stations to monitor US submarines in the north, like the American SOSUS. They have a solid "fence" covering the Pacific and Atlantic coasts of the United States, and in the north - Canada.

    Eh ... Less than two months later, the President of the Russian Federation announced that the entire territory of the Russian Federation was covered with a radar umbrella. It turns out that the president was lying, he was lying.
    And again they step on the same rake of the 1977 model, the experiment of Brezhnev, Ustinov, Ogarkov, when the air defense of the COUNTRY was reassigned to the military districts. Now, at the moment, the RTV VKS is engaged in radar reconnaissance, a little ZRV VKS, since the VKS has been the legal successor of the country's air defense since 1994. And on the ground forces, as well as the navy, they want to attach an unusual performance of combat missions. The air defense of the ground forces and the navy is not mediocre cover and reconnaissance in the theater of operations. And not objective. Why step on the same rake again. The decision on the offender is increased by three, and maybe more than the resolver. This time . Further . Will full-fledged combat units or "castrates" be deployed, where one "person" performs the work of 4 \ 6 specialists? Will the protection be carried out by separate units or, as usual, "the rescue of the drowning is the work of the drowning themselves." Rotation? As in contracts signed by contractors - a comfortable hostel is provided. I will be glad if the "female lover", as the Minister of Defense, provides everyone with comfortable housing for the duration of the service, and not doghouses from under the cisterns. And without the officer's triathlon: water, firewood, slops.
