Rubric: Russia, Industry

The Monolit-B coast-based reconnaissance system of sea-surface/aerial situation in the module configuration is easily transported, fits for any chassis, quickly deployed, and can operate as a self-propelled or a stationary version. At the International Maritime Defense Show (IMDS-2019), Typhoon Instrument Engineering Plant (member of Morinformsistema-Agat) presented this system to the wide public for the first time.

Monolit-B system is designed for long-range over-the-horison detection and tracking of sea surface and aerial targets.

Active radar of the system is capable to detect targets at the distance of up to 500 km, the passive one – up to 750 km.

Dmitry Kushnerev, deputy director for innovations at Typhoon plant said the system is made under the "container philosophy".
"The system’s dimensions are comparable with the 20-foot containers, with those twist locks and so. If needed, we can quickly unlock it, lift by a crane and put on another truck. Need KamAZ? Not an issue. MAN? No problem. What about TATRA? Piece of cake!", said the manufacturer’s deputy CEO.

For some applications, the Monolit-B system can be used without chassis, as a stationary reconnaissance system.

The crew of the self-propelled version consists of 5 men, the mobile and the stationary versions – 4 men.
