“A counter-battery radar has undergone field test operations within the framework of state tests. They were successful enough. The radar is currently in the workshop and is being prepared for the next stages of state tests, which we must complete by the end of May. We expect this item of equipment to be put into service,” Yuriy Pashchenko, the director of the State Enterprise “Iskra” said, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
According to him, the design of this radar is a breakthrough in domestic radio detection and ranging. After all, such type of military equipment has been designed and manufactured in Ukraine for the first time.
“Ukraine has not had such equipment. The armed forces need it very much. We have heard the feedback from the officers who serve in the Joint Forces Operation area. They are waiting for this radar, and we will do everything that depends on us to put it into the service of the armed forces in the near future," the director of the state enterprise said.
Zoopark-3 counter-battery radar (1L220UK) is intended for detecting the location of the enemy artillery. The radar can "see" all the artillery weapons of the enemy: mortars, cannon artillery, air defense missile systems. It helps to determine where the projectile was fired from, a place of its fall and burst.
