At the MAKS-2019 airshow, designers of Vega presented the synthetic aperture radar RSA 0.1. The company’s representatives told Mil.Press Today that the distinctive features of the radar were its weight/dimensions characteristics: the compact transceiver weighs only 9.6 kg, and the antenna tips the scale at 1.2 kg.

The radar is designed to receive high-precision radar images of ground and sea surface objects in different weather conditions. The product relates to the side-scan radars.

Mikhail Kaplin, an engineer at Vega assures that the radar’s small size do not affect the scanning accuracy.
"Its resolution is 0.1 meter. That means if the distance between two objects is more than 10 cm, we can classify them as different assets even from 20 kilometers", explained the engineer.
The International Aviation & Space Salon (MAKS-2019) took place in Zhukovsky, Moscow Region, from August 27 to September 1. The show attracted at least half a million visitors.

Mil.Press publishes news about the exhibit in the thematic section MAKS.
