1017084527

The Russian anti-missile warning system has the primary task to detect a missile attack and pass on the data to the anti-missile defense system.

Based on the system of missile warning the information about the extent and source of attack provides the defenses with needed calculation to respond.

The anti-missile warning  system consists of a ground-based radar with a detection range of 6000 km and a group of orbiting satellites that can detect the launch of intercontinental missiles from anywhere in the world.

“The anti-missile warning system evaluates the energy of the ‘torch’ itself and based on that it registers what type of a ballistic missile it is.”

According to him, the early warning system is constructed in such a way that it is ‘multi-channeled’ and can function on mass launches of dozens of ballistic missiles.

However, he did not rule out the emergence of ambiguous situations with such a technology, in which case specialists join in the process.
