Russia’s Defense Ministry will receive three Polyana-D4M1 air defense missile brigade automated command and control systems in November, CEO of the Radio Plant in Penza in the Volga area Oleg Ratnikov said.
The Radio Plant is the producer of the Polyana-D4M1 air defense missile brigade Automated Command and Control System (ACCS).
“Two Polyana-D4M1 air defense missile brigade automated command and control systems have been manufactured by the plant, accepted by the Defense Ministry and dispatched to units,” Ratnikov said on the single military hardware acceptance day.
“The third system has been produced and then accepted by Defense Ministry representatives. The system is planned to be dispatched on November 3, 2016,” he added.
According to the CEO, the system is designed for effective command and control of an air defense missile brigade or a composite air defense force operating the S-300 (NATO reporting name: SA-10 Grumble) and Buk (SA-17 Grizzly) surface-to-air missile systems.
“The system can simultaneously track up to 255 aerial targets at a visibility distance of 6,000 kilometers [3,728 miles],” Ratnikov said.
The 9S52M1 Polyana-D4M1 air defence brigade (mixed grouping) automated command and control system is designed to provide automated control of separate air defence missile systems, and their ombinations, making up air defence grouping, with the S-300, Buk, Tor AD missile systems and Tunguska gun-missile systems, via relevant command and control posts.
