The Russian Aerospace Defence Troops have received the latest radar complex – the Nebo-M (Sky-M), the Ministry of Defence has announced. This powerful digital information system is designed for air defence combat missions and can be deployed in the Arctic, an emerging threat area for Russia.
It looks like a fancy seeding machine, and can detect small and inconspicuous targets, including hypersonic ones and those made using stealth technology. Nebo-M (Sky-M) is designed for air defence combat missions and to provide radar support to anti-aircraft troops.
The Nebo-M is fully automated, with digital information processing. When the complex detects a target, it is able to classify it on its own – whether it is a plane or a missile, and then transmit this information or the type of target to combat crews, or to the deployed air defence systems, for which the Nebo-M can serve as a pointer.
