The Russian Defence Forces took delivery of its new batch of five new 55Zh6M Nebo-M mobile multiband radar systems, developed by Nizhny Novgorod Research Institute of Radio Engineering (NNIIRT).

A total of 10 Nebo-M mobile multiband radar systems were delivered for Russian Defence Forces.

The Nebo-M anti-missile radar facility systems are the part of a responsive measure to a threat stemming from NATO anti-ballistic missile systems in Eastern Europe, that was said by colonel Aleksey Zolotuhin, a spokesman for the Russian Defense Ministry’s press service.

The new Nebo-M 3-D radar system features a programmable multi-band design. The complex includes central data fusion and command post module as well as three radars, all deployed on separate high-mobility 8 x 8 24-ton vehicles.

According to Aviatioweek, radars feed data to the command post using high-speed narrow-beam digital data links in the microwave band.

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.
