 Russia deploys new radar in the Arctic: thousands of kilometers without rotating antenna

[Global Network Military Report of January 23] According to Russian News, Russia has deployed a resonance-N mobile radar system with artificial intelligence components in the Arctic. The system can detect cruise missiles and UAVs 1,000 kilometers away. Reported that this technology is particularly important in the Arctic region, because the enemy may be from there to Ural, Siberia and central Russia to carry out attacks.

Russias Ministry of Defense told the News that resonance-N was incorporated into the Northern Fleet at the end of last year and served in the radio technology unit of the 45th Air Defense Group Army. Resonance-N is used to detect all kinds of air targets effectively and remotely. It can detect and classify flying objects with small reflective area, and can easily detect stealth cruise missiles and ballistic missiles, as well as hypersonic flight equipment, micro-UAVs, helicopters and stealth aircraft. In the R&D of Resonance-N, the latest cognitive technology for mathematical processing of large data is used to realize self-study.

The phased array equipped with Resonance-N greatly expands the capability of radar system, and the locator can automatically exchange data with other radar systems. The device can detect air targets in the range of 1100 kilometers and send target instructions to air defense equipment in the range of 600 kilometers.

Resonance-N is characterized by the absence of a rotating antenna and the circumferential scanning is performed by an electronic device. This greatly improves the reliability of the positioner, prolongs its service life and reduces energy consumption. The locator will not fail under the condition of electronic countermeasure or strong natural interference. All the components and software used in the production process of Resonance-N are made in Russia. Almost all the equipment is installed in trucks and containers, and can be quickly transferred to new areas according to tasks and environments. At the same time, the radar system has been specially upgraded to work in harsh conditions in the Arctic.

Reported that the new radar system will greatly enhance the defensive capabilities of air defense forces in the Arctic region. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, there was a loophole in the radar network. To address this problem, the 45th Air Defense Group Army of the Northern Fleet was formed in the Arctic in 2015 and a new air defense division was formed under it last year. Meanwhile, radio technology units deployed in the Joseph Islands, New Territories, the Northern Islands and the New Siberian Islands entered combat duty.

Lieutenant General Alexander Gorikov, former commander of the Russian air defense missile force, told the News that the shortest flight path from the United States to Russia is through the Arctic, so there is a need for a reliable defense system against strategic aircraft and cruise missiles.

The Northern Command, deployed in the Arctic, is responsible for a series of strategic tasks. The first is to protect the personnel and equipment of the Northern Fleet on major missions, he said. The bases and deployment sites of Russias most powerful nuclear fleet need to be well protected, and it is also important to ensure the safety of industrial zones in Siberia, Ural and central Russia.

The Russian army is actively upgrading its air defense equipment and plans to upgrade its air defense equipment in an all-round way by 2020. At present, all newly formed air defense missile brigades and air defense forces have been equipped with modern weapon systems, and 120 new air defense equipment have been installed in 2018 alone.
