Description: The Shmel long-range, air surveillance radar was developed by the Russian Federation to equip the A-50 Mainstay Airborne Early Warning and Control (AEW&C) aircraft. The Shmel radar has a maximum detection range of 300 kilometers against fighter sized aircraft and 800 kilometers against missile launches while tracking up to 200 airborne targets simultaneously. The radar has the capability of directing up to 30 interceptor aircraft, such as the Mig-31, against the same number of intended targets simultaneously. The Shmel radar was first deployed by the Russian Air Force in 2008 onboard the A-50E/M surveillance aircraft.
