    OTH radars are more less accurate than radar operating in the L band.

    That sentance is wrong. I am thinking you meant OTH radar is less accurate than Lband radar systems.

    OTH radar are a great way to detect targets withought worry of the shape of planet, and pick up objects that could be considered a threat, and let other systems to be prepared to search and track for those targets. With newer technology, they have increased resolution as well as tracking/scanning accuracy greatly. May not be perfect but as long as you can distinguish a missile is approaching vs an aircraft.

    Hello to all,

    I'm new here and I'm particularely interested in radars.

    Who knows what type of radar is that one (and if possible its name) :

    https://i.servimg.com/u/f58/18/68/40/39/70001512.jpg


    It's near Astrakhan-Tinaki Air base

    5N56 radar - gigantic 3D radar with 800km range .....

    Only several of those where produced.

    Technically they're "mobile" but it took long to stow and deploy. (P-12 radar is "mobile" but took a day to stow and deploy)


    Hmm this is my first time hearing the 5N56 radar.

    Thanks Viktor for the info

    Hi zg18 and thanks for your answer

    P-37 is named "Bar Lock" by OTAN

    Here's a photo :

    Hi Viktor,

    Thanks for your answer.

    The article you joigned to your message shows a background photo that looks like what I'm searching about.

    Unfortunately, I don't speek russian.

    Does it talk about this radar ?

    I searched on Internet, but didn't find any infos about 5N56 radar

    Yes, the radar you are looking for is the radar on that photo but I dont speak Russian either so you have to ask TR1 for translation.

    I had a Russian link but lost it when my computer broke down and now I have this from some Czech defense forum that translates to this:

    What I found unusual is that microwave sources are horizontal, and antenna reflectors are vertical, like on height finders. (but apparently, these reflectors cannot rotate on a horizontal axis)

    That means that the beam is very thin in height (for zg18 : like P-37, but with a rotation of 90°  Wink )

    So it can come in mind that this radar has been developped to detect target moving from ground up to sky, like surface to surface missiles ?

    Nice! About 2 times more radar deliveres during 2014  russia 

    Russian Military to Strengthen Radar Defenses in 2014

    The list includes six Nebo-M active electronically scanned arrays (AESA) and a mix of 23 Podlyot low-altitude and Sopka medium- and high-altitude radars, the spokesman told journalists

    That list includes:

    - 6 NEBO-M radar systems
    - 23 Podlyot-K (low altitude), Sopka (medium- and high-altitude radars)
    - Unspecified number of modernized Kasta and Desna radars
    - Voronezh-M - prioritized

    During 2013 radar deliveries included about 20 radar systems

    - Gamma-S1, NEBO-U, Podlyot-K - not all are specified of course



    , Gamma-S1,

    - Podlyot-K is 96L7 radar on a mast (before referred as Lira but I guess with latter iteration the name changed too)

    - Sopka (western equivalent AN/FPS-117) is a civilian radar that will be integrated within military (no pics avaible as of yet, drawing only)

    Thanks for pictures and links.  thumbsup 

    Sopka radar looks like naval Fregat radar, but Podlyot more look like smaller Gamma-S radar. I think 200 km range is a little short for early warning radar, but excellent for covering shadow places of larger radars.

    Any informations, if Russian MoD still receive Nebo-SVU, Gamma-D and Protivnik radars?

    I dont know that Russian MoD has ever received Gamma-D? 64N6 is the one that Russian PVO troops picked instead of Gamma-D.

    Anyway, I dont know about other deliveries of Gamma-S1, Protivnik etc .... Im trying to pick up as much news as I can but situation is very slim or nothing.

    I don't think what is shown in the picture is really a radar.

    It actually is a directional steerable-beam command transmit/receive station for a ground-to-air data-link system.

    Raduga-SPK-75P is one such system. The transmit/receive stations of the Raduga-SPK-75P system, that I know of, have a lot of similarity to the one in your picture but are more complex. Actually the picture shown in the background of the article Victor posted is the Raduga-SPK-75P transmit/receive station I am referring to. The fact that it shows up in an article about 5N56 Shpaga radar is possibly due to a journalistic error in the article.

    Of course, from a technical point of view, these type of stations would have some intrinsic radar functionality in them, but that functionality is mainly for the purpose of them achieving their communication, command, and control roles.

    The text is about one of the general designers, not the radar itself unfortunately.

    http://vpk.name/news/103653_radiolokacionnaya_stanciya_55zh6um_niobii.html

    Article is about radar 55Zh6UM "Niobij", which production started in 2013 and they will continue to deliver them in 2014. Interestin is, that article mention, that Almaz-Antey deliver 9 Nebo-M complexes in 2013. It seems Russian MoD receive more radars, than we think.
