Description: The S-500 Prometey/Prometheus is the first Russian air and space defense system being developed to counter ballistic and hypersonic threats that could exist beyond 2020. As of summer 2009, the S-500 is in the blueprint stage an is expected to be rolled out in 2012. Designed to outperform the S-400 air defense system, it will provide the unique ability to shoot down hypersonic aircraft above 30,000 meters of altitude. The S-500 air-space defense system would be fully operational with the Russian Air Force by 2020. A new family of missiles will replace 48N6E2/E3 missiles, associated with S-300 and S-400 air defense systems, as the silver bullets of the Russian air defense systems. The S-500 missiles are related to the Bulava and Topol thermal technology developments and are intended to climb faster achieving awesome speeds of Mach 10 and ranges in excess of 600 kilometers. The whole S-500 system represents an entire new development not based on previous missile weapon systems.

The Mars mobile advanced radar system has been identified as a key sensor associated with the S-500 missile system. The advanced radar system will make possible to engage stealth and unmanned aircraft as well as ballistic missiles, hypersonic cruise missiles and low Earth satellites.
