    Cruise missile attack for Russia would by more danger than balistic missile. Russia would be a problem with the early detection of this missiles.
    There is no country in the world safe from cruise missile attack.

    The job of the VKKO however is to monitor the space and air above Russia so give them a few years and I suspect with a mix of ground, air and space based radar and optical sensors they will have most of Russian air space covered.

    It's true that hypersonic missiles will leave a very small reaction time and a narrow window of opportunity for interception.

    Early-warning Radars will be unable to track such targets but I'd imagine that with their hypersonic speed; such cruise missiles would have to travel at a high altitude anyway. And they'd have a hell of a signature (correct me if I'm wrong). So it should be possible to detect them and react in time.

    Everything worth hitting has radar coverage and SAM coverage.

    Radar and SAM coverage will increase dramatically over time.

    Note hypersonic cruise missiles are fast but also HAVE to fly at high altitudes.

    There are not many things that are hypersonic at sea level for any realistic distance.

    Military thinking about resuscitation Crimean radar "Dnepr"

    After the restoration of the station warning missile strike can be used to monitor the situation in the Black Sea



    Moscow. July 28. INTERFAX.RU - The Russian Defense Ministry is studying the possibility of restoration and modernization of the radar missile warning "Dnepr", stationed in Sevastopol, "Interfax" a source familiar with the situation. "The experts appreciated the technical condition of the radar facility in Sebastopol. Study the possibility of resuscitation and modernization in favor of missile and air defense," - said the agency interlocutor. At the same time, he said, to a plan to radically modernize Sevastopol. It is fundamentally about how to install a new radar filling the new generation, which will significantly increase the performance characteristics of the Sevastopol radars. Commenting on the announcement, former commander of the Army missile warning Lieutenant General Nikolai Rodionov said that radar "Dnepr" after the upgrade will be useful to monitor the situation in the Black Sea, and the recovery will not require much effort, as the station is in a satisfactory condition. "As far as I know, the decision to upgrade the radar in Sevastopol can be taken in the near future. This is quite true, as the station covers all the Black Sea. Extra information does not happen" - said Rodionov "Interfax". Radar "Dnepr" of missile attack warning (EWS) in Sevastopol until the beginning of 2009 stood with a similar village to Mukachevo (Transcarpathia, Ukraine) on duty in the interests of the Russian Federation in accordance with the Russian-Ukrainian agreement of 1997. The information in these radar leading space surveillance over Central and Southern Europe, as well as the Mediterranean, came to a central command post EWS Russian Space Forces. Similar stations "Dnepr" operate today in Russia, including in Murmansk and Irkutsk. Station "Dnipro" in Sevastopol bedspreads, including the Middle East, and was able to pinpoint the ballistic missiles of various ranges based on 2,5 - 3,5 thousand km. In February 2008, Russia completes governmental testing station of a new series of "Voronezh-DM" in Armavir, unilaterally withdrew from the Ukrainian-Russian intergovernmental agreement on EWS 1997 and renounced the use of Ukrainian radar information.

    Voronezh-M early-warning radar in Orsk located

    Construction of the early-warning radar in Orsk is very much underway. Here is the radar - at 51.273346, 58.959030. It is looking almost directly South (170 degrees).

    http://russianforces.org/blog/2014/09/voronezh-m_early-warning_radar.shtml

    Google Earth tells us that there was nothing there just a year go - the image from 26 June 2013 shows only some marks where the new radar will be built.

    Updated map of Russian early-warning radars

    What a difference a year makes - since the last update in August 2013, we now can see three more early-warning radars - in Yeniseysk (Voronezh-DM), near Barnaul (Voronezh-DM), and near Orsk (Voronezh-M).

    The Yeniseysk radar covers very much the same sector that was supposed to be covered by the old Daryal radar that was built nearby in the 1980s. The radars in Barnaul and Orsk look almost directly South.

    Here is an updated Google Earth file that shows locations of the new (and old) radars and the sectors they cover.

    Russian Federation will launch the first new satellites, missile warning in 2015




    Yalta, October 3. / TASS /. First satellites from the future orbital constellation of space-tier system of missile warning will be launched next year, told Trend. TASS CEO "Radio Engineering Institute. Mints" (RTI) and general designer Sergei Loot system.


    He recalled that the now developed a single space system, which will be the space echelon of the missile attack warning.


    "First launches will be in the next year", - assured the fighting. He, however, did not specify how many satellites will in future grouping.


    According to the fights, the results obtained by the developers of a single space system in the corporation "Comet", "give confidence that the first test, and the first launches will be successful." "Ultimately, we build up to the desired composition of the group," - he added.



    CEO of RTI noted that the new satellites will have a number of new features, they will integrate new solutions.


    While Western sanctions, according to the head of the company, should not seriously affect the timing of, or the quality of performance of the system. "We have long been engaged in the development of electronic-component base, and I expect that we will have a number of solutions to replace their imported" - said the fighting.'




    Earlier it was reported that in April, stopped working last geostationary satellite system "Eye-1", created in the 1990s to detect launches of intercontinental ballistic missiles. Then, the military said that of the six devices, operating on highly elliptical orbit, there were only two, because of what they can accomplish their tasks only three hours a day. Nevertheless, in the space industry have stated that the loss of the satellite will not affect the effectiveness of the system of missile warning, which is based mainly on the ground radar stations. At the same time experts have stated that the first satellite of this system will be launched into orbit by the end of the year.


    System Reconnaissance


    Engineering design of the system of aerospace exploration completed this year, said fights.


    "We will finish this year, technical design, then will be the stage of development of the design documentation," - said the agency interlocutor.


    As explained TASS source in the defense industry, in Russia, a system of aerospace defense, one component of which will be referred to aerospace exploration. "This component must provide information on detected targets for weapons. He must track promising means of destruction, including clean space" - said the source.


    Station "Voronezh" will be launched by 2018


    New radar station "Voronezh-DM" and "Voronezh-M" ground echelon of the Russian system of missile warning (EWS) will be commissioned in time, certain fights.


    He recalled that this year must earn passing state tests now station in Irkutsk and Kaliningrad regions.


    "Today we are actively preparing for the statement on the pilot alert two more stations - Barnaul and Orsk" - added Loot.


    Earlier it was reported that by the end of the year can step up experimental combat duty station "Voronezh-DM" in the Altai and Krasnoyarsk territories.


    "We expect that we will have time to do so, as promised supreme commander. We promised two years ahead of time to do everything, not 2020, and 2018. As we walk in the schedule, and I am absolutely convinced that we have this chart will survive, "- said the agency interlocutor.


    Complexes S- and L-band


    RTI is developing a mobile radar systems operating in S- and L-bands (frequency ranges 1-2 and 2-4 GHz). The use of these bands will allow stations to operate with greater precision, also reported fighting.


    "We are currently developing a new generation of stations that will be mobile and will be based on the sea or land mobile systems (including rail or road)", - said the fighting.


    It is said that the new station would operate "is not in meters not decimetres, they will be the S-band, L-band", wherein the wavelength ranges from 7.5 to 15 and from 15 to 30 cm, respectively.


    According to him, RTI must complete the development in 2015, and already in 2016 to start the construction and testing of a new generation stations.


    "This is different from anything we've done before, - the source said. - Today, this range is considered to be very promising, here we go almost at the same pace with the Americans, who are also very active in developing such systems."

    Russia Starts Construction of Two New Anti-Missile Radars: Defense Official

    In October, Russia announced that an early warning radar station in western Kaliningrad Region would be put on full combat duty in December 2014.

    MOSCOW, December 1 (Sputnik) — The construction of two anti-missile radars has begun in the European part of Russia, in the Orenburg Region and the Komi Republic, the commander of the Russian Aerospace Defense Forces said Monday.

    "The construction of new-generation radar stations… began in the Orenburg region and in the Komi Republic," Lt. Gen. Aleksander Golovko told journalists.

    In October, Russia announced that an early warning radar station in western Kaliningrad Region would be put on full combat duty in December 2014. The move came after the United States announced in May the opening of a Patriot missile base in northern Poland, some 50 miles from the Kaliningrad Region.

    Earlier in the same month, the Russian Defense Ministry said it planned to complete the construction of several new anti-missile radars able to cover the entire territory of Russia within five years.

    Two new generation radars to be commissioned ahead of time in Russia's Siberia

    The deadlines for deploying new generation Voronezh-M and Voronezh-DM radars were revised and moved from 2020 to 2018 in view of US plans for deploying missile defense systems in Europe and Alaska.

    MOSCOW, February 17. /TASS/. The Russian Defense Ministry has tightened the deadlines for commissioning two new generation missile attack early warning radars, the general director of the Minsk Radio Engineering Institute, Sergey Boyev, told the media on Tuesday.

    "The Defense Ministry has asked us to commission two more facilities ahead of time. We will do our best, of course. There are updated schedules already. The concern’s entire industrial segment has been shifted to a more intensive mode of operation," he said.

    Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu issued orders to ensure the radars’ early commissioning in late 2014. Besides, the deadlines for deploying new generation Voronezh-M and Voronezh-DM radars have been revised and moved from 2020 to 2018 in view of US plans for deploying missile defense systems in Europe and Alaska.

    The plans for building radars in other regions of the country are proceeding in accordance with plans.

    "Then there will follow the other radars - in Orsk (the Urals), Murmansk and Vorkuta (the Arctic). Everything will be accomplished on time," Boyev said.

    The high factory readiness radars from the Mints Radio Engineering Institute possess far higher technical and tactical parameters than the previous generation radars. They consume far less energy, take up far less space and require fewer personnel. The Voronezh-DM radar has a range of 6,000 kilometers. It is capable of identifying, tracking and classifying modern and future air and space attack weapons, including ballistic and aerodynamic ones.

    After all is about how much enemys you can see, how far you can, how much missiles and ICBMs. And early warning means you have time to push the button called "defense"

    Russia Begins Construction of Anti-Missile Radar in Arctic

    The construction and renovation of the missile attack warning system is set to be completed by 2020, according to the Russian Aerospace Defense Forces.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Construction of a cutting-edge missile attack early warning radar station has begun in the Arctic, Russia’s Aerospace Defense Forces Deputy Commander said Saturday.

    "Just the other day, on September 24, in the north of the country in Vorkuta, we laid the foundation stone in the construction of new early-warning radar, which will not only replace our stations in Pechora and Olenegorsk but will also supplement them," Maj. Gen. Anatoly Nestechuk told the Rusnovosti radio station.

    Nestechuk added that the Usolye-Sibirskoye radar station was currently tracking all missile launches from the territories of China, the Sea of Okhotsk and the Pacific Ocean.
