Deputy CEO of Ukrainian company Piranha Tech, Yuriy Momot, told about a new development that will be able to effectively counter Russian attacks

He said this on Espreso TV.

"One of the radars that should work in this system is a so-called firing radar station with a firing control module. It will contain data on the weapon to be used, the range of impact, and the caliber of a particular firearm. It will guide, take into account all the characteristics of this weapon and independently aim at the target," Momot said.

There are two stations in the active radar system. One station is constantly detecting, so to speak, a lookout station. The detection range is up to about 100 km, depending on the target, he said.

"The smaller the target, the shorter the detection distance will be. This radar will operate with low power, it is difficult to detect, but it will see up to 100 km. This antenna needs to be raised to a height of three meters. That is, the observation room sees, transmits this to the firing room, and the firing room then fires. This process can be automated. The radar will see the target and direct the weapon to it," he said.

In general, detection systems are divided into active and passive. Piranha Tech is working in two directions and has already developed technical documentation for two radar stations, Momot said.

"We are currently in the process of formulating the procurement of the necessary spare parts for active radar stations, as they are in great demand. We will need to talk about creating a low-altitude radar field over the territory of Ukraine. Then the terrain and riverbeds will not interfere with the view of unmanned aerial vehicles moving across Ukraine and trying to destroy our infrastructure facilities that are not in the combat zone," he said.

According to him, the system will first be tested, accepted for procurement, and armed. If these characteristics are confirmed, they will be scaled up through orders.

  • Valeriy Romanenko, an aviation expert and leading researcher at the State Aviation Museum, explained that thanks to electronic warfare systems, Ukraine can effectively influence the navigation systems of Russian missiles, forcing them to deviate from their course.
