Russian developers will create an aerostatic complex based on the ATLANT airship to solve the problems of anti-missile and air defense.
“The Avgur aeronautical center, with the support of the Advanced Research Fund, plans to start developing a new aerostatic complex in the interests of missile and air defense in the near future,” Interfax reports with reference to its source in the department.
The new device will contribute to the creation of a single radar field in Russia. The equipment of the complex will allow to transmit commands in real time and will allow to effectively deal with various goals, including hypersonic ones.
“The complex should occupy a niche between the orbital group, in terms of monitoring space and airspace, and the grouping of Voronezh stations, C-300, C-400, C-500 anti-aircraft missile radar systems,” the source explained to the agency .
