According to a recent article presented by Asia Africa Intelligence Wire, 4/03/2002, the Russians exhibited a new radar system capable of tracking stealth aircraft. As usual, we can probably expect stealth and counter-stealth activities for years to come... More to look for at Area 51... Russia/ New radar system shown at arms exhibition in Nizhniy Novgorod
Text of report by Russian Public TV on 3 April
[Correspondent Yuriy Chukhin] This is the biggest exhibition of radioelectronic technology ever held in Russia
... [at] Nizhniy Novgorod...
[Vladimir Simonov, captioned as general director of the Russian Control Systems Agency, speaking at the opening ceremony] This is an unusual exhibition, because dual-purpose technology is being shown here for the first time, both military systems and their analogues adapted for civilian needs.
[Correspondent] Many items presented at the exhibition exist in a sole copy, like this radar known as Nebo-SVU and made in Nizhniy Novgorod. A heavy radar station is deployed and made ready for work in 30 minutes.
[Igor Krylov, captioned as senior researcher of the Nizhniy Novgorod Radiotechnical Institute] We are now in the control cabin of a radar station. You see two planes here [on a monitor]. They are at a distance of 200 km. The station can trace up to 200 targets at one moment and process the data automatically.
[Correspondent] The scientists proudly say that their radar can trace even the famous US Stealth fighter-bomber.
[Krylov] We can see the Stealth as clearly as any other plane.
