Russia’s Nebo-M radars can detect advanced aircraft, including F-22 Raptor and F-35 Lightning II of the United States, Almaz-Antey Director General Yan Novikov said.
“The Nebo-M radar is the menace to stealth technologies. It can see F-22, F-35 and so on perfectly well,” Novikov said during the New Knowledge educational marathon on Saturday, quoted by TASS.
He official went on to say that Almaz-Antey, the chief developer and maker of Russian aerospace defense systems, produces more than 30 types of mobile multi-funcional radar systems.
According to the specifications of the export version of Nebo-M (55Zh6ME), radar envelope in circular scan mode is 10-600 km, in in sector scan mode – 10-1800 km. It interrogates, receives, processes, identifies, displays radar data coming through the friend-or-foe identification channel and feeds it users. The system is said to combine advantages of various frequency bands, to ensure
the high rate of information updating, including data on high-speed and maneuvering air targets, long-range detection of ballistic missile launches. The Nebo-M can exchange radar data in C4I environment.
Another major Russian development in the field of long-range radar systems is Rezonance-NE. It is a high frequency radar against stealth aircraft that covers up to 1,100 km distance. It is said to be able to detect hypersonic ballistic missiles.
