Russia has deployed the radar complex "Resonance-in", capable of discovering hidden targets and faster than sound, in the archipelago of Novaya Zemalia. The complex will take up a combat mission in November 2019.
Ivan Nazarenko, director general of the Research Center, "Resonance" said this is the third such radar in the Arctic. The station is connected, built and ready for combat use. Now, an interdepartmental committee is working to receive and transfer the radar to the Northern Fleet air defense.
According to him, four plants have already been transferred to the army, the fifth in the final stage of production. All Resonance radars are designed to control airspace over the North Pole. The extent to which the radar operates can effectively detect stealth targets and supersonic missiles flying at Mach 20.
Radar uses the principle of resonance reflection of radio waves from an object, resulting in a sharp increase in its effective reflective surface, and the range of detection and target range for aerodynamic targets is 600 kilometers at an altitude of 100 kilometers and for ballistic targets - 1200 kilometers.
