"AN/TPQ-49 anti-mortar radars will make effective action against enemy artillery. These devices are able to immediately determine the place from which the fire is conducted, missile and artillery systems. The range is from 50 meters to 10 kilometers. The accuracy of determining the coordinates of the enemy is up to 75 meters at a distance of 5 kilometers. Modern AN/TPQ-49 radars are in service around the world," the press service of the state concern said.

The AN/TPQ-49 counterfire radar provides continuous 360 degree surveillance and 3-D RAM location using a non-rotating, electronically steered antenna. Its full azimuth coverage allows it to simultaneously detect and track multiple rounds fired from separate locations within a 315 square kilometer surveillance area. It can also be configured to scan less than 360 degrees, providing focused sector coverage with more frequent update rates.

Once RAM is detected, the radar sends an early warning message indicating a round is incoming. After sufficient data is collected to enable an accurate point of origin, the weapon’s location is reported back to an integrated command and control station or short range air defense system for a counterfire response.
