Multipurpose hemispherical radar demonstrated the possibility of detecting missiles, artillery shells and enemy mortar ammunition.The detection system of missiles, artillery shells and enemy mortar ammunition (Counter Rocket, Artillery, and Mortar, C-RAM) RPS-40 covers the sector in 180 degrees in width and 90 degrees in height. When the panels are tilted 45 degrees, the system combining four radar modules provides full hemispherical coverage, effectively detecting mortar and rocket attacks, as well as the threat of direct fire.

A new radar designed to improve the protection of forward-based units and advanced operational bases was recently tested in Israel by RADA Electronic Industries. Multi-purpose hemispherical radar RPS-40 is designed to detect missiles, artillery shells and mortar ammunition of the enemy.

Mortar and rocket attacks can be extremely dangerous for protruding military units, advanced operational bases or civilian targets. Early warning of personnel, allowing him to hide and the armed forces to use anti-battery fire, leads to a significant reduction in casualties.

During the tests, the radar detected numerous mortar shells and missiles fired within the radar coverage area. The system detected threats at the earliest stage and provided only an early warning without any false positives. According to RADA, the new radar provides a precise definition of the initial launch point (Point of Origin, POO) and point of impact (Point of Impact, POI), allowing the effective use of selective alert, countermeasures and counterstrikes.

RPS-40 detects, tracks, classifies and determines the coordinates of the place of the alleged fall of ammunition when they are fired at direct fire and along a hinged path of stationary or mobile forces; Such threats include missiles, artillery, mortars, ATGM, RPG and more. The system can be integrated into any protection system and / or combat information and control system and can be placed on stationary bases and posts or on board combat vehicles.

The tests were watched by representatives of the Israel Defense Forces and the defense industry. "Our next goal is to set up mass production by the middle of 2013," said Zvi Alon, general manager of RADA, adding that further tests are planned for the coming months, the purpose of which will be to confirm the tactical and technical characteristics of the system in additional operational activities. Alon expects that by the end of the 2013-th radar RADA will be adopted by individual customers.

        Apparently, only AFS is presented in the picture, the rest of the equipment is located elsewhere. Judging by the antennas, the detection range is 15-20 km, so l / s will not always have time to take cover. You won’t hide from the mortar even in the trenches, just a few seconds before your death you learn about it.

          This is not an area to be especially painted, these are not weddings of pop stars, as it were. I remember how in the late 70s the media often talked about cruise missiles of current probable friends, and KS-1 has been in service since 1953, many then who besides knew about her and the subsequent ones? Now, of course, the times are not the same, but traditions have remained
          And in the announced developments there is, as it were, a similar arena for the protection of armored vehicles, it’s not what it detects, it destroys the flying ammunition

    Useful invention. Especially against mortar attacks. After all, if you find the first mine still in the air, then there is time to take cover, and without this system, by the time the first mine breaks in the location of your unit in the air, there may already be (at least) a dozen mine-launched mines. And this is one mortar, and if there are several ... Yes, and to the rupture of the first mine, the calculation, which fired, could already retreat. Now it will be harder and more dangerous to do this, because from the moment of the first shot and even before the mine reaches the target they will find you.

      It can detect a projectile or mine, but in order to dodge and survive, in addition to incredible agility, you still need to know your exact coordinates on the ground in real time, then learn from the operator the coordinates of the "landing of the projectile, then compare them with your coordinates, and then make a decision; hide behind a bump or drift a hundred meters to the side.
      And in general, with such a attitude it is better not to serve in the army and not to fight. The chef at the general’s kitchen is the safest place, but it happens that unexpected gifts fly in there too.

    It’s good that’s just how it works in practice. Imagine - there is a military convoy on one of the machines, there is a radar, the system fixes an artillery shell - and then they have nowhere to go off the road. Or there is a group wherever in the mountains, in the forest, etc. who will miss this radar.

    I agree that the development is necessary, but its application is limited.

    Early warning of personnel, allowing him to take cover and the armed forces to use anti-battery fire, lead to a significant reduction in losses.
    It’s clear about the counterfire, but they’ll take cover ... They won’t shoot from across the sea. It’s not said to read the thoughts of the enemy artillery, they need to run and dig faster than the bullet

    Everything is much simpler, this contraption reveals the location of the attackers, and then, logically, it should be covered by the fire of its artillery or aircraft or other means of destruction - a useful thing if there are means of destruction, but nevertheless, they invented a bicycle ... and we have there is also a hillock - they just came up with their own ... the militants do not shine - for why would they cover their positions !? with grenade launcher or RPG-7 !? it is for the army, not for partisans or terrorists ...
    Here is the same "Zoo-1" (GRAU 1L219M index) "Zoo-1" (GRAU 1L219M index) - the radar of reconnaissance and fire control (counter-battery radar). The radar system is intended for reconnaissance of the firing positions of enemy missile and artillery weapons (mortar positions, artillery positions, MLRS positions, tactical missile launchers and air defense systems). "Zoo-1" performs the calculation of the trajectories of missiles and shells, is able to adjust the fire of its artillery assets, monitor airspace and monitor unmanned aerial vehicles

    Here are the overseas "friends" FIREFINDER radar complex (USA). The US ground forces use the FIREFINDFR radar complex to solve counter-battery warfare tasks, which includes three AN / TPQ-36 (V) radars and two AN / TPQ-37 (V) radars.

    Anti-battery radar station EQ-36 (USA). This radar, developed under the FIREFINDER radar complex modernization program, provides for the firing of mortar positions of mortars, artillery guns, MLRS of the enemy at ranges from 0,5 to 60 km and the adjustment of fire of its artillery. The developer of the station is the American firm Lockheed Martin.

    Portable anti-battery radar AN / TPQ-48 (V) 2A (USA). This station, originally developed for special operations forces, was designed to detect, classify and locate mainly the positions of firing mortars, as well as launchers of unguided rockets and UAVs at ranges from 0,5 to 10 km. Unlike portable radars, it operates in the L-frequency range and provides all-round visibility and detection from any direction.

    The problems of the Middle East prisoner of America are not at all in the enemy artillery. The Israeli leadership should think about why, even when mentioning the name of this country, most people dislike it, and all immediate neighbors are enemies of the Jewish state? Understanding this problem and trying to find just ways to solve it would be a more effective way to ensure military security.

      In fraternal Russia, unit-level portable radars have been in service for at least a couple of years

    This device, like the "Zoo" together with its foreign counterparts, serves primarily for counter-battery warfare. After detecting the flying shells, the time to take cover will be minuscule, and even more so to remove the technique from under the blow.

    What is what, but the kosher service has been delivered in terms of saving the lives of fighters. And this unit will be able to prove its professional suitability only in real combat conditions.

    If this radar can be calculated by means of RTR, then it is possible to destroy. It is time to invent an anti-radar mine ... But to counter partisans or a technically backward enemy, it’s the very thing. What is the approximate cost of the complex?

    During testing, the radar detected numerous mortar shells and missiles fired within the radar coverage area.

    Everything is clear and understandable. The problem is different. While information about the point of impact reaches the fighter located near that point, most likely, it will be too late for him to run away.
    Or is there a method - they discovered the shelling of the area and all in chorus "made" legs from there, leaving that radar to the mercy of fate?
    Now, if this radar is connected with the "Iron Dome", then it will be possible to notice a probable "arrival" from this structure.

      The article states that this device can be paired with various systems. For example, the radar gives a warning about the place where the mines fell, and the BIUS notifies the fighters at this point.

        So consider yourself. Flight time + detection time + delay in the transmission of information + reaction time of an ordinary person. He will just be able to get up in order to catch more fragments. And it won't have time to dig deeper. And it looks like it will be too expensive to pair with the "dome". The budget is not enough. Moreover, that "dome" has already "shown" itself. Advertising is one thing, fact is another!

          All the same, it gives some head start. There is a difference if the soldiers lie down even before the first mines fall, because they sounded the warning signal in the headphones.

    An interesting device.

    Our "Zoo" is a powerful means of counter-battery combat with the detection range of 20-40 km, depending on the category of launch or firing of the enemy. It should be staffed in art units.

    Here the equipment is more modest: 5-10 km. But he also has corresponding tasks - front cover. For example, companies in defense or a checkpoint.
    The operator can yell with good language about danger and the people will have a few seconds to stupidly fall to the ground, this is already very good, believe me.
    And the equipment immediately gives out the direction of fire and the enemy’s place, which also reduces the time of return fire as well as its effectiveness. And then, during the shelling, as a rule, they start firing in all directions, trying to grope the enemy or simply lay off under mortar fire, for example.

    And if several such radars are included in the same system, then the guarantee of the destruction of the enemy increases significantly (return fire from other companies or artillery attached to the unit). A sort of network of "miniZoo". Not bad.
    It will be even better if these numerous stations collect data into a central and powerful "Zoo".
    Amer tested and more reduced systems for determining the location of the source of fire, to protect the columns, installed on the hammers, but they seemed to get a lot of bunts.

    It’s interesting how all the equipment looks, otherwise the photo shows only antennas.
    Thanks for the info, professor.

      Tie the system on such a mortar and ...

    could indicate in the article even the dimensions of this device, otherwise nothing is clear from it. Well, for advertising, it would be nice to indicate the radius of target detection.

    Guys, I'm shocked by your degradation! when "vashy" are at the checkpoint -my aunt is going home -examination -tightly matsat her -she asks "why the hell are you doing this?" he replies: "but I want to fuck, if I don't want to, I will not fuck." and you stick around here and on the technology of the discussion breed. Finish this fuss (war), there are no Nazis and Benders here. And if you don't think so, then the 25 frame technology was applied to you ... if anyone does not know what it is, type a request in Wikipedia!

    He asked about our systems, but received an answer about the Israeli ones. You tell me more about Indian and Chinese.
