Officials say the portable station will allow tracking "within the 200-mile exclusive economic zone."

It is also reported Laguna-M will be able to track ships and vessels in the 120-degree sector, determining the coordinates and course parameters "with high enough accuracy."

The device will be able to identify vessels beyond the horizon. According to FlotProm, the station will be used "in the southern regions of Russia."
