Radar of the Future: Russian Army to Get Advanced Stealth Drone Hunter

Moscow (Sputnik) Nov 25, 2016


Watch a video on the technology here.

The Zavod Electromash plant in the Russian city of Nizhny Novgorod has created a unique stealth robotic system capable of detecting unmanned aerial vehicles, Zavod Electromash spokesman Valery Pyatkin told Sputnik. In an interview with Sputnik, Valery Pyatkin, spokesman for the Nizhny Novgorod-based Zavod Electromash plant, said that they had developed an advanced stealth robotic system capable of detecting reconnaissance and attack drones.

The mobile optical-radar, non-emitting complex is due to enter service at the Russian Armed Forces after the wrap-up of the development work which will last until mid-2017 at the earliest, according to Pyatkin. "The 20-kg system includes the receiving antenna and software-hardware complex to process and display information. The system can be supplemented with optical electronics for reconnaissance purposes", he said.

He added that aside from tracked vehicles, the remotely operated system can be based on small truck chassis, including a SUV or a minivan. The detection range is over 20 kilometers, with a radar accuracy of about 10 meters.

Pyatkin specifically pointed to the system's unique characteristics. "First and foremost, the absence of active radiation makes the system very stealthy, not allowing the enemy to detect and destroy it with anti-radar means; secondly, the system detects enemy attack and reconnaissance drones which observe radio silence mode; also, the system can effectively detect sophisticated enemy stealth drones of various types," he said.

Pyatkin touted non-emitting radiolocation as a promising trend in the development of modern radar systems on the whole. Non-emitting radar systems use signals from those transmitters which are not related to systems, Pyatkin explained, citing TV and radio broadcasting systems, mobile connection as well as broadcasting, navigation and communications satellites.

Non-emitting radar systems detect an object by comparing and processing the signals, which include a direct signal from another transmitter and the same signal reflected from an object.

DARPA doubles down on Tern by funding 2nd test vehicle
Washington DC (SPX) Nov 21, 2016
Tern, a joint program between DARPA and the U.S. Navy's Office of Naval Research (ONR), seeks to greatly increase the effectiveness of forward-deployed small-deck ships such as destroyers and frigates by enabling them to serve as mobile launch and recovery sites for specially designed unmanned air systems (UASs). DARPA last year awarded Phase 3 of Tern to a team led by the Northrop Grumman ... read more
