The Russia’s Armed Forces, testing one of the stations of over-the-horizon detection of the early-warning system (EWS) received confirmation that it is able to detect launches of potential enemy’s cruise missiles, CEO of RTI, general designer of EWS Sergey Boev said in an interview with “Kommersant”.
“These means of aerospace attack (cruise missiles) are a new challenge for us. The country’s security depends on how quickly we find the target, that’s why we are conducting the work on creation of adequate resources to respond such threats. In the first place, these are stations of over-the-horizon detection, one of them is now being adjusted at the western radio center. According to the test results, we received confirmation that this station is really capable of detecting such carriers as cruise missiles, “- said Boev.
