Armed Forces of Ukraine mastering Israeli early-warning radar system in Poland
The Ukrainian and Israeli military are working together on the territory of Poland to implement an early-warning radar system in Ukraine.
Eli Cohen, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Israel, made the announcement, Ukrinform reports.
The system is designed to detect missiles and drones, as well as track their trajectory.
“As we speak, the Israeli and Ukrainian military are working together in Poland to implement our warning system, which will save the lives of civilians in Ukraine,” he said.
It is expected that the Israeli system will allow air warning sirens to be activated more quickly only in those places where there is a real danger of missile fire or an attack by enemy drones.
Earlier, Ukraine’s Ambassador to Israel, Yevhen Korniichuk, stated that the initial deployment would be a pilot that at best would cover a city like Kyiv. If everything works well, the system will later be delivered to other regions of Ukraine.
According to Korniichuk, this is the same system that has been used in Israel for a long time.
The Ambassador noted that the Red Color alert system, also known as Tzeva Adom, is specifically adapted to our realities.
Tzeva Adom is designed to detect missiles and drones. The trajectory of the movement is tracked with the radars that monitor the airspace in the direction of the territories from which shelling is usually carried out.
The system also calculates the time of approach – the siren gives a special signal that indicates how many minutes/seconds people have to hide.
One of the significant advantages of this system is its ability to calculate a relatively precise time and place of impact for launched missiles, which allows the area of operation of the warning system to be localized to a specific city.
However, the operating conditions and capabilities of this system in Ukraine will differ because of the weapons’ specifics used by Russia against Ukraine.
