Ukraine has intensified its efforts to create a national air defense system Dnepr


Ukraine has intensified work to create a multi-aircraft missile system of medium-range "Dnepr". Promising complex designed in the ground and ship variant.

According to available information, the Ministry of Defence has set deadlines for prospective developers SAM. Since the first prototype should be ready in 2014. As conceived by the military leadership, SAM "Dnepr" must be installed on the project 58250 corvettes. In case of violation of or non-compliance of the tactical and technical characteristics, the complex will be replaced with the French equivalent of SAM «ASTER-15."

The newest Ukrainian medium-range air defense system "Dnepr" the product synergies Ukrainian defense companies:

— NPK Spark (multi-function radar station missile guidance);

— NPP "Aerotekhnika" (para. command and control for the "Dnepr");

— "Ray" (flares);

— Lviv Neary (developer GOS) — KrAZ (chassis).

Overall project management "Ukroboronservis." The main purpose of prospective air defense complex "Dnepr" is the struggle with modern and advanced aerodynamic means of air attack in a difficult interference situation, issue of generalized information about the traffic situation and the information on the results of the battle for higher command post.
