Description: The Russian Aerospace Defense Forces Voronezh is a family of long-range, early warning and surveillance radars designed to detect and track a wide range of threats such as ballistic missiles, aircraft and satellites. The Voronezh early warning system is capable of tracking up to 500 objects simultaneously and has been designed for energy efficiency. The Voronezh family is based on modular off-the-shelf radar technology. It comprises tens of modules that can be assembled in 12-24 months at a prepared concrete slab site. The modular approach of the Voronezh radar system makes them upgradeable and re-deployable to another area with ease. The radar family includes three variants: Voronezh-DM (4), Voronezh-M (2) and Voronezh-VP (1) . The first one entered into service in early 2009. Russia started construction of two more radars in 2016 in the Komi Republic and in the Amur Region. The tenth radar site construction is planned for 2017 in Murmansk Region.

The Voronezh-M is a long-range early warning radar using Very High Frequency (VHF). As of early 2016, Russia has deployed a Voronezh-M radar in Lekhtusi/ Lekhtoussi, Leningrad Region, near Saint-Petersburg monitoring the airspace from Morocco to Spitzbergen. The radar went into experimental service in March 2006 and achieved operational capability in 2009-2010. The radar will be upgraded in the near future to see the US East coast. A second Voronezh-M radar based in Orsk, Orenburg Region, will be operational before the end of 2016. Its construction started in August 2013.
