Two new radar stations to be placed into service in Russia in 2014

Moscow (Voice of Russia) Jan 06, 2014

The creation of the new-generation radar network will ensure that an all-over prompt-warning radar field will be formed by 2018, the ministry noted.

Two new radar stations of the missile warning system will be placed into service in Russia's Kaliningrad and Irkutsk regions this year, the Defence Ministry's press service and information department said.

Work to set up radar stations will also continue in the Krasnoyarsk, Altai, Orenburg and Arctic regions, the ministry said.

The main centre of missile attack warning has four new-generation radar stations at present - a Voronezh-M station on duty in the Leningrad Region and a Voronezh-DM in the Krasnodar Territory, and the other two - the Voronezh-DM in the Kaliningrad Region and the Voronezh-M in the Irkutsk Region - are on test duty.

The creation of the new-generation radar network will ensure that an all-over prompt-warning radar field will be formed by 2018, the ministry noted.

No less intensive is the work to form a united space system of detection and operational control. Construction is underway at command stations in Serpukhov and Komsomolsk-on-Amur and the Plesetsk space centre, the information department said.

The active development of the Russian system of missile attack warning will ensure missile detection and radar control in all directions, the ministry assured.

In 2013, duty forces of the warning system and missile defence detected about 40 launches of foreign and Russian missiles and space rockets. No missiles or rockets were missed in the Russian control zone. It proves the Russian systems' high readiness.

Russia rebuilding lost radar coverage
Moscow (Voice of Russia) Dec 22, 2013
The commissioning of a Konteyner radar station in the Russian region of Mordovia east-southeast of Moscow has marked the completion of the latest part of Russia's programme to patch up its radar surveillance coverage, which developed huge gaps after many of the Soviet radar stations were taken over by new states and many others fell into post-Soviet disrepair. Adding to this misery is the ... read more
