Using a new type of radar, Russia is about to establish a global early warning network rivaling that of the USSR.
According to the Rossiyskaya Gazeta newspaper, the mainstay of this global defense system will be formed of the third generation Voronezh-type radar stations.
The Voronezh-class radar system includes three variants, including the Voronezh M, Voronezh-DM (using VHF and UHF), and the Voronezh-VP ‘high potential’, assumed to be EHF (extremely high frequency). The system’s range is between 4,500 – 6,000 km, and it is capable of detecting objects at a height of up to 4,000 km.
Furthermore, Voronezh-class radar is made of factory-built modules and can therefore be rapidly constructed in about a year and a half, while it usually takes from 5 to 9 years to build a radar station of equal capabilities.
