“The first six radars have been delivered to air defense units which are part of airborne and air-assault brigades stationed in Novorossiisk, Ivanovo and Tula,” Col. Alexander Kucherenko said.
The testing of Garmon portable radars will continue until the end of 2012.
According to various sources, the Garmon (1L122M) radar is designed to detect and track at least three types of airborne targets despite active electronic countermeasures.
The system weighs about 30kg and consists of an antenna array, a CPU, a tactical display and a Glonass receiver.
