Назначение

The «Vostok» radar family is designed for detection of aerial platforms, measurement of their range, azimuth and range rate, automatic target tracking and classification,transmission of radar information into an integrated control system.
«Vostok» is a new fully Belarusian development capable of replacing not only the world-renowned P-18 radar, but long-range P-18, «Oborona» and similar radars as well.
«Vostok» considerably outperforms the VHF P-18, 5R84А, 1L13 and the existent foreign radar versions in the same class in terms of performance characteristics owing to employment of state-of-the-art in radar, modern digital technologies and advanced design and engineering solutions.

Composition
  • antenna equipment vehicle;
  • remote automated workstation (RAWS);
  • autonomous diesel power generator

Достоинства

  • long detection range, high accuracy of coordinate measurements;
  • high mobility;
  • effective detection of small-size and stealthy aerial platforms;
  • enhanced jamming immunity;
  • digital signal-forming and processing, modern highly efficient algorithms;
  • fully automatic operation mode, including detection and tracking of aerial platforms;
  • automatic functional check of all radar devices;
  • high radar concealment due to use of pseudonoise probing signal of low peak power;
  • effective protection against precision weapons.
Manufacturer’s technical support and SPTA supply outside the warranty period are provided throughout the system service life under separate agreements.
