    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.

    Forewarned is Forearmed: Russia Boosts Its Missile Defense Capabilities

    Using a new type of radar, Russia is about to establish a global early warning network rivaling that of the USSR.

    According to the Rossiyskaya Gazeta newspaper, the mainstay of this global defense system will be formed of the third generation Voronezh-type radar stations.

    The Voronezh-class radar system includes three variants, including the Voronezh M, Voronezh-DM (using VHF and UHF), and the Voronezh-VP 'high potential', assumed to be EHF (extremely high frequency). The system's range is between 4,500 – 6,000 km, and it is capable of detecting objects at a height of up to 4,000 km.

    Furthermore, Voronezh-class radar is made of factory-built modules and can therefore be rapidly constructed in about a year and a half, while it usually takes from 5 to 9 years to build a radar station of equal capabilities.

    Following the dissolution of the USSR, Russia's early warning capability was dealt a severe blow as many of its elements located in the former Soviet republics were promptly shut down by the new authorities. Now however, with the implementation of cutting-edge technologies, the new network is set to surpass its Soviet predecessor and provide early-warning coverage for the entire territory of Russia.

    Meanwhile, Russian Armed Forces have deployed two batteries of K-300P Bastion coastal defense missile systems at the Kola Peninsula. According to the Izvestiya newspaper, the deployed weapons cover about 1,500 kilometers of Russia’s coastline in the region and effectively transform a sizeable portion of the Barents Sea into a 'dead zone' for NATO warships.

    A K-300P battery consists of 12 mobile launchers equipped with P-800 Oniks anti-ship missiles with a range of 300 kilometers.

    Following a recent deployment of this type of missile launchers to Crimea, Russia can now engage and destroy any hostile target in both the Black Sea and the Barents Sea, the newspaper remarks, pointing out that the country’s Ministry of Defense didn’t specify where it might deploy these weapons next.

    Aegis in Romania! Two can play at that game.

    Russia will modernize an early warning radar station located near Sevastopol in Crimea to detect possible missile launches from the Black Sea and the Mediterranean, according to the newspaper Izvestia.

    The Russian Defense Ministry plans to restore and modernize the Dnepr early warning radar station near Sevastopol, Crimea, the newspaper Izvestia quoted a source in the military-industrial complex as saying on Tuesday. When restored, the station will be capable of tracking down hypersonic, cruise and ballistic missiles launched from ships in the Mediterranean Sea and the Black Sea at ranges of up to 3,000 kilometers.

    The source said that the Dnepr station's equipment will operate in the super-high frequency band, which is expected to increase the effectiveness of the Russian radar station in the city of Armavir, which operates in the ultra-high frequency band. Izvestia quoted military expert Vadim Kozyulin as saying that the Dnepr radar station will help provide Russia with all-round defense against sophisticated missile attacks. " For example, it takes a US Tomahawk cruise missile about two hours to reach Moscow, and duly detecting such a missile will be precisely the task of the new Russian radar station near Sevastopol," Kozyulin said.

    The Dnepr early warning radar was built in 1968 and was used to monitor the Black Sea, Southern and Central Europe, as well as parts of the Middle East. After the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 it was transferred to Ukrainian sovereignty, but continued to provide data for the Russian military under lease. In 2009, Russia canceled the deal due to the fact that the Dnepr radar's coverage could be substituted by a new Voronezh radar station in Armavir.

    New early-warning radar in Olenegorsk is under construction

    Construction of the new early-warning radar at the Olenegorsk site began in the spring of 2016. At this point it's just a hole in the ground and the flat terrain makes geolocation rather difficult. But the new site is probably not far from the old Dnepr/Daugava site.

    This is probably the last in the series of new early-warning radars that Russia will build in the coming years. At least that was the plan in 2013. It appears that the new Olenegorsk radar will be of the Voronezh-VP type, similar to those built in Mishelevka and Vorkuta.

    The construction of the early-warning radar in Vorkuta that began in September 2015 has made enough progress to be visible from space.

    New Voronezh EW radar being installed in Yeniseisk detected it's first ballistic object over North America.

    MOSCOW, October 5 -. RIA Novosti latest radar high prefabrication (RLS VZG) "Voronezh-DM" in the district of Yeniseisk Krasnoyarsk Territory for the first time discovered on the northeast missile-direction real ballistic target, told RIA Novosti press-service of the concern "RTI" .

    In Russia in the early 2000s, it was decided to create a series of high-tech radar VZG "Voronezh-DM", including in the Yenisei region, for improving the national warning system (EWS). This early warning radar is designed to control the previously naked northeastern missile-dangerous directions - from North America. This radar is able to determine the exact coordinates of the starting place ballistic targets and to accompany them.

    "The real ballistic target with a precise definition of its trajectory characteristics of the first discovered radar VZG" Voronezh-DM ", located in the city of Yeniseisk District (Krasnoyarsk region). Thus, confirmed the correctness of the decisions made on the establishment of a number of radar early warning in order to ensure the country's defense" - said the press service of the company.

    What kind of a ballistic target was detected and at what time, not officially reported.

    General Director of OJSC "RTI", general designer Sergey Boev national early warning system for the successful implementation of the most important tasks of the state expressed his gratitude to the labor collectives of JSC "SPC" NIIDAR ", JSC" Radio Engineering Institute named after Academician AL Mintz "and other enterprises involved in the creation of the radar.

    Voronezh-DM type radar station

    Post  JohninMK on Mon Nov 21, 2016 1:24 am

    Russian defense enterprises are to build a heavy-duty radar station to warn of potential missile strikes on Russia, according to Sergei Boyev, chief executive of the holding company that will construct the missile attack warning system.

    The Voronezh-DM type radar station will be deployed in Russia's northwest near the city of Murmansk (1,160 miles north of Moscow), where Boyev says it "will cover the main missile-threat direction" in the western area.

    The new station will be able to detect ballistic, space and aerodynamic objects, including cruise missiles.

    A continuous radar coverage along the perimeter of Russia is now in place, with 7 stations. https://regnum.ru/news/polit/2220812.html?utm_medium=referral&utm_source=lentainform&utm_campaign=regnum.ru&utm_term=1245878s10306&utm_content=4961283

    The article says 10 stations r planned-so, r the 7 already built enough or not? I guess now they don't have to use their AWACS & MiG-31 planes as much for routine/extra AD patrolling along their borders!

    Well, not really. The smallest blind spot on Russia's missile detection shield could be easily exploited by a potential enemy.

    This is the map of the currently working/under construction/proposed "Voronezh"radars.


    From here: Arrow http://www.milkavkaz.net/2016/08/kakovo-sostoyanie-protivoraketnoj-oborony-vks-rf.html

    I listed them for you: (Operational, under construction, proposed)

    (from West to East)

    - Pionerskiy (Voronezh-DM) (Kaliningrad)
    - Lekhtusi (Voronezh-M) (Leningrad region)
    - Olenegorsk (Voronezh-VP) (Murmansk region)
    - Armavir (Voronezh-DM) (Krasnodar region)
    - Orsk (Voronezh-M) (Orenburg region)
    - Vorgashor (Voronezh-M) (Komi Republic)
    - Barnaul (Voronezh-DM) (Altay region)
    - Yeniseisk (Voronezh-DM) (Krasnoyarsk region)
    - Mishelevka (Voronezh-DM) (Irkutsk region)
    - Zeya (Voronezh-DM) (Amur region)

    In the list, I counted 6 in operational red, not 7. Agreed, it makes sense to have  more than absolute minimum to ensure & constant coverage + allow for maintenance, attrition/hostile action, natural disasters, etc. I can't access the map u posted.

    It's clear to me that the radars in Barnaul & Vorgashor will cover the gap in W.Siberia, N.Russia, Barents & Kara Seas & up to the N.Pole, Ukraine, Belarus, E.Poland & the Baltics. Pretty good way to monitor air & naval activity around the perimeter of Eurasia! They could also share intel. with China, N.Korea & Iran, if need be! But, can these radars detect low flying UAVs & cruise missiles?
