Rosoboronexport has unveiled a new 59N6-TE mobile three-dimensional radar capable of detecting hypersonic targets.
The radar has been developed by “Nizhniy Novgorod Research Institute of Radio Engineering” (NNIIRT).
“Today, Rosoboronexport is introducing the export version of our new radar that is capable of detecting hypersonic targets,” said Rosoboronexport’s Director General Alexander Mikheev.
The 59N6-TE mobile three-dimensional station utilizes Russian hardware components with digital processing and signal generation. It is fully solid-state and has high potential together with enhanced jamming resistance, Rosoboronexport said in a release Thursday.
The 59N6-ТЕ is a medium and high altitude radar having a decimeter wavelength range. Apart from hypersonic targets, it also effectively detects aerodynamic and ballistic targets.
The radar is capable of detecting targets flying at a speed of up to 8,000kmph, range of up to 450km and at an altitude of up to 200km. It provides range, azimuth and altitude of aerial targets.
After detection, it exchanges radar information with C4I complexes. It operates in conditions of jamming and carries out direction finding of active noise jammers.
The station has an automatic and a semi-automatic mode of aerial targets’ acquisition and tracking.
In real time mode, it can simultaneously track no less than 1,000 hostile objects and recognize 8 classes of targets, which includes selection of anti-radar missiles and warning its own combat crew of the danger of elimination, inter alia, by high precision munitions and homing missiles.
The 59N6-ТЕ radar also includes equipment for the recognition of detected aerial targets in international radar recognition systems Mk-XA and ATC RBS.
The 59N6-ТЕ radar set includes an antenna-hardware complex and an indicator post, placed on a standard vehicle chassis of the “KAMAZ-6560” type. There are also options to place the item on a single vehicle chassis, deploy it in a stationary version or to place the radar antenna system on a high tower support and other installations.
Besides, the station is equipped with remote operator’s work stations, which may stay at a distance of up to 1km from the indicator post if connected via glass fiber links, and up to 15km in case of using a radio link.
“In am confident that in present-day conditions and with obvious prospects of hypersonic technologies, the 59N6-ТЕ radar will take top positions in its market segment. We rely on high demand for the radar in the countries of the Asia-Pacific region, the Middle East and North Africa,” added Alexander Mikheev.
