Rosoboronexport's fifth generation 59NE Protivnik-GE universal mobile 3D radar station has entered service with Russian military air defence units in the Central Military District, the Russian Ministry of Defence announced on 26 June.

The Protivnik-GE radar is designed to control airspace, detect air targets, determine their high-resolution coordinates (azimuth, distance, altitude), speeds and flight trajectories at long ranges and high altitudes.

The station is able to operate under conditions of extreme radio interference as part of automated air defence control systems, rapid reaction forces and air traffic control systems.

In intense radio interference conditions, the radar is able to give information simultaneously for guiding aircraft and targeting anti-aircraft missile battalions without additional refinements.
