Description: The SBI-16 Zaslon, 'Barrier' in English, is an state-of-the-art, long-range, passive phased array antenna radar system developed by the former Soviet Union for its Mig-31 high-speed interceptor. The Zaslon radar features the ability to search, detect, identify and track airborne targets in the forward and tail hemispheres using electronic scanning technology in both look-up and look-down modes. The radar's flexibility allows for operation in single or group modes sharing target information via a built-in data-link among four Mig-31s or with another three air defense fighters such as Mig-23, Mig-29 and Su-27. A group of four Mig-31s covers an area of 800 kilometers wide and 2,000 kilometers long. When operating in groups a single Mig-31's radar is enough to provide target data to the other aircraft with their radars being off. The radar system can operate in the presence of adverse weather and active and/or passive jamming as well as interacting with ground control systems and airborne early warning and control (AEW&C) aircraft.

The Zaslon-M is an upgraded, multi-mode version of the Zaslon phased array antenna radar developed by KRET Corporation for the Mig-31BM aircraft, which is also a modernized version of the Mig-31 interceptor. The modernization of the radar focused on the maximum detection range, use of new types of weapons, implementation of a digital receiver and avionics upgrade. The Zaslon-M can detect a fighter aircraft at a range of 320 kilometers with the ability to engage them at a distance of 280 kilometers. The upgraded radar can track up to 24 aircraft while engaging up to eight airborne targets simultaneously. The Zaslon-M also enables the use of air-to-air missiles, smart bombs and anti-radiation missiles.
