According to the ImportGenius website that tracks the import/export activity at shipping docks, the U.S. Army Contracting Command received the 3D mobile air-defense radar system from Ukraine.

The notice by the ImportGenius said that the U.S. Army Contracting Command center in Orlando has received 3D mobile air-defense radar system, called the 36D6M1-1, from Ukraine through SFTC “Progress”.

The 36D6M1-1is a mobile 3D airspace surveillance radar system that was developed by the SE “Scientific and Production Complex “Iskra” and is designed to be used as a part of modern automated Air Defense systems, Anti-Aircraft Missile Complexes and to detect low flying air targets under active and passive jamming as well as to provide Air Traffic Control both for military and civil purpose.

However, it is expected that the Ukrainian-made 3D mobile air-defense radar system could be used for technologies analysis and operational OPFOR training.

It is worth noting that previously business structures associated with Russia tried to disrupt the contract for supply Ukrainian 3D radar system to the United States.

According to the notice by the Ukrainian industrial group UkrOboronProm, the LLC” KIT ” tried to block the production process at the SE “Scientific and Production Complex “Iskra” by fake accusations in 2017.

KIT Ltd. wanted to deprive SE “Iskra” of the opportunity to produce important military equipment, accusing it of non-payment of royalties (payment for the use of the patented invention).

Also, the Ukrainian defense group added that  LLC “KIT” is a fictitious firm, with which the former management of the company entered into agreement, aiming for funds withdrawal. The court declared this agreement invalid, because LLC “KIT” did not meet UKROBORONPROM requirements, had no UOP accreditation and has nothing to do with the defense complex of Ukraine.

State-owned enterprise “Research and Production Complex” Iskra “is the leading developer and manufacturer of ground radar equipment for the defense complex of Ukraine. It is one of UOP enterprises.
