“Up to five Resonans-N radars have to be deployed in the Far East by 2027 according to the arms program. The first one will be deployed in Sakhalin region. The Defense Ministry will determine the exact location,” the source said.

TASS could not obtain an official confirmation of the report.

A source previously told TASS that training of operators of Resonans-N will begin in 2022 in the air defense center in Vladimir region.

The 45th air force and defense army of the Northern fleet currently has three four-module round-view Resonans-N and another two are being deployed in the Arctic.

Resonans-N operates in the meter band by the resonance of waves and detects stealth and hypersonic targets flying at 20 speeds of sound. The radar can detect and provide guidance at aerodynamic targets at a distance of 600 km and ballistic targets at a distance of 1200 km and an altitude of 100 km.
