Russia will secure itself from the north

The Russian military department is installing a network of "Resonance-N" radar stations in the Arctic, and 5 radars of this type will operate there by the end of the year.

According to available data, by the end of the second quarter of this year, the radar station deployed on Novaya Zemlya in 2019 will be put on alert, 2 more stations will be switched on by the end of the year - the fourth in Zapolyarny and the fifth in Gremikha. The first and second radars are already on alert in the areas of the settlement of Indiga and the Kanin Nos peninsula.

It is indicated that the radar station in Zapolyarny, installed 30 km from the border with Norway, will provide total control over the northern territories of Norway and Finland. The entire network of the "Resonance" radar station, spread out in the Arctic, will cover the northern direction.

Earlier it became known that "Resonance-N" can detect ballistic and cruise missiles, hypersonic targets with a flight speed of up to Mach 20, and aircraft supporting stealth technology. The station can detect, recognize and give target designation for air aerodynamic targets at a distance of 600 km, for ballistic targets - up to 1200 km, at an altitude of up to 100 km. RLDS are capable of operating in a fairly wide temperature range from -70 to +50 degrees Celsius.
