Ukroboronprom

State-owned Iskra Research and Production Complex, which is part of the state defense conglomerate Ukroboronprom, manufactured and handed over to the Armed Forces a new 3D radar system 35D6M.

The new station is capable of operating in almost any climatic conditions, as well as in mountainous terrain, Ukroboronprom said in a statement.

The radar has better tactical and technical characteristics than its predecessors, including longer range, improved trajectory processing parameters, and expanded functionality powered by hi-end software solutions.

The radar can also be supplemented with equipment for direct interaction with anti-aircraft missile systems if required. But the most important thing is the 35D6M's ability to operate in almost any climatic conditions and in mountainous terrain," the report reads.
