According to the report, this state-of-the-art technology provides a three-in-one replacement for Iskra's other recent product releases – the 1L220UK counter-battery radar and 36D6M/80K6 series surveillance radars.
"The L1300 Mongoose is a multifunctional radar that can operate in surveillance mode – that is to scan the airspace at reasonably long range. It can switch over to counter-battery mode and deliver functionality of a quality counter-battery radar, and it can provide guidance data for a guided munition," Iskra CEO Yuri Pashchenko told the Security Talks program.
The L1300 could soon become a robust pivotal core of Ukraine's nationwide air defense system, providing the detection of and protection from "long-range" threats and operating allied to other domestically developed capabilities like the SAM systems currently being developed by DKKB Luch and KB Yuzhnoye/Pivdenne, Pashchenko said.
"In Ukraine, this radar could make up a basis for a nationwide air defense system similar to Israel's Iron Dome. When paired with domestically manufactured weapon-fire capabilities, this could make the basis for a recon-strike complex. This, I am confident, is where future belongs to," Pashchenko said.
