The mobile 3-D air surveillance radar for low, medium and high altitudes with coordinate and track outputs, operating off-line or as a part of regional and national automatic control post (ACP) is designed to be used: - as a part of anti-aircraft missile troops to issue targeting to...
The Iskra 80K6T is designed to detect targets and operate in-concert with the surface-to-air missile (SAM) systems used by the Ukrainian Armed Forces. The 80K6T will also be able to operate as part of a network-enabled force within Ukraine.
The 80K6T is an S-band 3D radar, it can provide information of the target’s range, azimuth and altitude. With a maximum detection range of 500 km and maximum altitude coverage of 40 km, the 80K6T can track up to 500 targets simultaneously.
The 80K6T can pick-up fighter-sized targets – i.e. 3m2 RCS (radar cross-section) – at 350 km and at altitudes of 10 to 30 km. Iskra says that the 806KT has scanning intervals of 5, 10 and 20 seconds.
Each of the 80K6T’s solid-state transceivers has a peak power of 30 kW. It can emit up to 16 beams can detect small targets, including terrain-hugging cruise missiles. Iskra states that the 80K6T provides radar clutter suppression and has strong defensibility against enemy electronic warfare (EW) jamming.
Logistically, the 80K6T comprises of two transportable pieces – the radar equipment and the radar station for operators and the power generators. It can be ferried using light transport aircraft. As per Iskra, the radar can be deployed in 15 to 20 minutes.
