intresting graph there
Any information about this radar?
You aren't suspicious that those claims is little bit overexaggerating? How does it cost?
Cosmic eye: what the newest Russian radar station "Sula" is capable of
It is the newest radar station for observing space objects..
The peculiarity of the product lies in the modest size of the antenna strip, which allows monitoring the situation at a distance of up to 6 thousand km. The station has a sectional-modular principle of architecture, which allows it to be deployed in a short time on the ground or on the territory of a military unit. Experts believe the Sula is capable of effectively tracking space debris, satellites and ballistic missile warheads.
A distinctive feature of the Sula radar is the presence of a module in which receiving and transmitting devices are integrated.
This made it possible to make the station quite compact.
For example, the size of an antenna web capable of scanning space at a distance of up to 6 thousand km is 8 × 8 meters.
The radar antenna is based on a modular digital active phased array antenna (AFAR).
According to the developer, it provides the station with "high information characteristics, bandwidth and noise immunity."
AFAR is superior to passive radars in terms of power, reliability and range, the developers note.
In addition, the active antenna is capable of detecting more objects due to the increased range of deflection angles of the main beam.
The pulse radiated power of "Sula" is 500 kW.
The area of responsibility of the station is almost the entire upper hemisphere, and the sector of electronic scanning is a cone with an apex angle of 40 degrees.
"Sula" operates in the frequency range of decimeter and centimeter wavelengths, making it possible to track the movement of satellites, space debris and other objects in orbit.
At a distance of 1.5 thousand km, the radar is capable of detecting objects with an effective scattering area (ESR) of 0.01 sq m..
The enterprise negotiates the type and characteristics of data transmission channels with the customer on an individual basis.
The future operator is invited to use satellite systems, radio relay systems, fiber-optic lines and other means.
As Sheludko said in an interview with RT, "Sula" is controlled from a command and computing center, made in a pre-fabricated module.
The entire infrastructure of the radar station is a whole complex of technical structures with dimensions of no more than 300 × 400 meters.
The station includes an antenna post with a cooling and air conditioning system, communication and data transmission facilities, an engineering complex with an autonomous uninterruptible power supply system and a fire station, a meteorological station, a repair and training base.]]

they will always get riduculed for it. Just makes me confident that we have people who think out of the box in the militaryCheck this out; this is Russia's Black Sea Fleet's Vasily Bykov Project 22160 patrol ship and it's armed additionally with a Tor-M2KM air defense system on the aft helo landing pad. The Israelis also recently craned one of their iron cones onto one of their saars or whatever they call those. Makes you kinda wonder, who was the first to bring a pair of Avengers mounted on HUMVEE's to protect their two Mistrals LHD helicopter carriers and were laughed at and ridiculed? Oh yeah, the Egyptian Navy wasn't it?!
So I guess now that the Israelis copied the same idea it's ok? And now here the Russians pretty much did the same thing with a tracked Tor-M2 SAM system, I guess it was a pretty damn genius idea on behalf of the Egyptian Navy!

This news will help very much our defense industry. I think always the private sectors bring more "prosperous" projects than the state sectors. I hope with the privatization of our economy will help us to fight this global crisis despite the inflation etc..
