Russian Army will be getting Advanced Stealth Drone Hunter which is capable of detecting unmanned aerial vehicles over 20 km range with radar accuracy of 10 meters.
The Zavod Electromash plant in the Russian city of Nizhny Novgorod has created the stealth robotic system, the plant’s spokesman Valery Pyatkin was quoted as saying by Sputnik News today.
The mobile optical-radar, non-emitting complex is due to enter service at the Russian Armed Forces following the completion of development work probably in mid 2017.
"The 20-kg system is equipped with receiving antenna, software-hardware complex to process and display information. The system can be supplemented with optical electronics for reconnaissance purposes", he said.
Apart from tracked vehicles, the remotely operated system can be based on small truck chassis, including a SUV or a minivan.
The major feature is that the absence of active radiation makes the system stealthy, not allowing the enemy to detect and destroy it with anti-radar means.
Another major feature is that the system detects enemy attack and reconnaissance drones which observe radio silence mode; also, the system can effectively detect sophisticated enemy stealth drones of various types, he said.
Non-emitting radar systems use signals from those transmitters which are not related to systems such as TV and radio broadcasting systems, mobile connection as well as broadcasting, navigation and communications satellites.
Non-emitting radar systems detect an object by comparing and processing the signals, which include a direct signal from another transmitter and the same signal reflected from an object.
