MOSCOW, February 15 (RIA Novosti) - Russia’s air-defense systems manufacturer Almaz-Antei will for the first time show mockup models of advanced battlefield surveillance radar systems at the IDEX-2013 international arms exhibition in Abu Dhabi, the company said on Friday.
Almaz-Antei will display models of FARA-PV, a modernized, portable short-range battlefield surveillance radar with a panoramic display, and Project 1L277, a short-range solid-state ground surveillance radar.
The radars are designed for day/night and all-weather location of moving targets (personnel and vehicles) and stationary objects. They feature automatic transmission of data to the user and can be used to adjust artillery fire.
Project 1L277 can track up to 20 targets and is capable of automatic moving target recognition.
Representatives of nine defense firms affiliated with Almaz-Antei will take part in the exhibition. IDEX-2013 will run from February 17-22.
