Ukraine to unveil new counter-battery radar during India Show 2019
Ukrainian state-owned company SpetsTechnoExport, part of the UkrOboronProm, is planning to unveil a new and improved version of its radar systems during Aero India 2019 exhibition in Bangalore.
According to a statement released by the SpetsTechnoExport, the company will unveil some models and concepts of new radar systems, including counter-battery radar 1L221Е at the Aero India 2019.
The new 1L221Е is developing to help protect deployed warfighters from rockets, mortar rounds, and artillery shells.
It is a radar complex, equipped with the digital active phased antenna array (DAPAA). Complex provides the reliable and high-accuracy detection of coordinates for the first shot (launch) for the entire fire depth, issues the target detections for automated fire control systems, can adjust artillery and missile systems, verifies the shooting systems classes (mortars, artillery, tactical missiles), detects the coordinates of impact point for mines, shells or missiles, provides the detection and tracking of low RCS targets of UAV type.
1L221Е Radar complex maintains the reconnaissance and spotting modes simultaneously in the azimuth sector.
For reference, Ukraine is among the top-ten countries in the world developing and producing radar technologies.
Following the demise of the USSR, the country has been able to retain a nearly self-sufficient radar R&D and production industry and manufacturing capacities for radar electronic hardware and associated subsystems. Ukrainian industries have been producing new radar products while upgrading and updating already proven technologies.
