MOSCOW, Russia – The Russian Defense deployed in the Arctic the Resonans-N mobile radar complex with artificial intelligence elements. The system is capable of detecting cruise missiles at a distance of 1,100 km. It is vital for Russia to control this area, from where a potential enemy can attack the Urals, Siberia and Central Russia.
According to the Russian newspaper Izvestia, the Resonans-N radar entered the service of the North Fleet at the end of last year and has technologies especially important for the protection of the Arctic region.
This system easily detects ballistic and cruise missiles, hypersonic aircraft, minidrones, helicopters and airplanes with stealth technology. During the development of Resonans-N, the latest artificial intelligence technologies, with self-learning capabilities, were implemented for the mathematical processing of large datasets.
Your locator can automatically exchange data with other radars. This equipment can detect aerial targets within a radius of 1,100 km and send information on the location of air defense units that are at a distance of up to 600 km.
It is worth mentioning that the new complex should improve the capabilities of the air defense group in the Arctic region, where after the collapse of the USSR many areas no longer have coverage. To solve the problem, the 45th Army of the Air Force and the Air Defense of the North Fleet was formed in 2015.
For the United States, the shortest way to reach Russia’s borders is to cross the Arctic, so reliable protection against strategic aviation and cruise missiles in the Arctic is needed, said Aleksandr Gorkov, former head of the Anti-Aircraft Missile Forces to Izvestia.
“The North command, which is being implemented in the Arctic region, performs a wide range of strategic tasks: first, the protection of the Northern Fleet’s forces and resources, which carry out particularly important missions. It is also important to ensure the safety of the industrial areas of Siberia, the Urals and Central Russia,” summarizes Gorkov.
