Details of how Russian S-400s detect American stealths revealed

The principles of operation of the Russian S-400 air defense systems against the American F-35 and F-22 have become known.

Experts for the first time recognized the superiority of the Russian S-400 air defense systems against stealth fighters, including the American F-35 and F-22, and also revealed details of how the Russian S-400 detects small radar targets.

According to the information provided, the radars of the Russian S-400 complexes use special wave ranges, which make it possible to bypass the stealth protection, however, in this case, the detection range is no more than 300 kilometers.

“To capture invisible targets, the S-400 is equipped with two VHF and UHF radars. The repeater of these two stations is a passive radar with a target detection range of up to 700 km. The signal of the stealth aircraft detected by these passive radars from a very long distance is transmitted to the UHF radar "Protivnik-G". A feature of this radar station is the presence of a 5,5x7 m digital antenna. Along with this, the Protivnik-G station is equipped with powerful computers, therefore, the components of the stealth aircraft are transmitted to the control posts of the S-400 air defense missile systems, and also transmits a signal to the control radars of the centimeter range of the S-400 system ", - reports the publication" Sokha ".

Thus, the attempts of the American military to quietly get close to the Russian radars and detect them using standard methods are absolutely ineffective, while taking into account the use of repeaters, the detection zone of the Russian S-400 air defense systems will significantly increase.

It should be noted that the export versions of the S-400 air defense system are not equipped with additional radars and a repeater and, therefore, they detect targets at much shorter distances, but at the same time they also remain quite effective.

The theory of edge waves of the physical theory of diffraction, on which stealth technologies are based, was worked by the Soviet scientist Pyotr Efimovich Ufimtsev. But he also announced at the Berlin conference about the methods of detecting subtle targets with the help of radar, and for this old Soviet developments could be used, let alone the S-400e, especially the S-500e ...! As they say, there is always an antidote for every poison!
