NVK Iskra finishes test of 90K6E radar

30th April 2020 - 17:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


NVK Iskra (a subsidiary of Ukroboronexport) has successfully completed testing export models of its 90K6E 3D mobile surveillance radar.

Two days of tests confirmed the ability of 90K6E to detect UAVs at low, medium and high altitudes for a variety of ranges, using its circular surveillance radar and transistor transmitter.

Yuri Pashchenko, director of the Iskra Scientific and Production Complex, said: ‘The positive results of these tests open to us the undeniable prospects of 90K6E to be exported. We already have a potential customer from one of the countries in the Middle East, for which the ability to determine UAVs is one of the basic requirements.’

The 90k6E radar was first unveiled in 2019 and is designed for use by anti-aircraft missile units. During testing, the radar was able to identify a Raybird 3 small tactical UAV which reached an altitude of 3000m and a speed of 160km/h.
