    The mobile multi-range programmable Nebo-M complex can provide information on small-sized aerodynamic and hypersonic targets in difficult jamming background.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Russian Strategic Missile Defense troops have begun deploying the new Nebo-M (Heaven-M) anti-missile radar facility systems, a spokesman from the Russian Defense Ministry’s press service said Thursday.

    “The mobile multi-range programmable Nebo-M complex is capable of performing tasks of providing information on small-sized aerodynamic and hypersonic targets in difficult jamming background, as well as provide information for anti-missile weapon systems,” the spokesman said.

    The deployment, construction and development of Russia’s anti-missile systems have become a top priority for the Russian Defense Ministry, predominantly due to the expansion of a US anti-ballistic missile system in Eastern Europe, in particular in Romania, Turkey and Poland, as well as in Spain.

    As a responsive measure, in October, the Russian Defense Ministry unveiled plans to build several new anti-missile radars in order to cover the entire territory of Russia over a five year period.
