    Rostec has developed a radar optical station for protection of the Russian state borders and critical facilities, the UIMC's press service said Friday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russia's United Instrument Manufacturing Corporation (UIMC) has developed a radar optical station for protection of the state borders and critical facilities, which is capable to detect the movement of people and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), the UIMC's press service said Friday.

    The station consists of the all-round looking radar Forpost and the electrooptical module Polet-1, which are capable of detecting moving objects at a distance of up to 12.4 miles.

    "The station, developed by our Vega [Radio Engineering] Corporation, allows to get full and reliable information about the situation at the protected territories and objects. Unlike the majority of other radar stations it is capable to detect not only land targets, but also low-flying UAVs, that considerably increases the efficiency of such a monitoring system… Separate elements of the radar optical station are currently undergoing trial operation and showing good results," UIMC's Deputy General Director Sergei Skokov said as quoted in the press service's statement.

    The station is equipped with the Russia made software which provides the automated interaction of all elements, the press service said.

    The UIMC was established in March 2014 within State Corporation Rostec as a specialist company uniting research and production facilities of radio and electronic sector of Russia.
