A Rezonans-N radar, also called Rezonans-NE, capable of spotting Hypersonic missiles is scheduled to be operational around June  2021 in the Arctic Region. The radar is being installed in the Novaya Zemlya archipelago. This is the third unit to be operational. The first two are deployed near the towns of Shoina located on the Kanin Peninsula in northern Nenets Autonomous Okrug and Indiga in the Nenets Autonomous District in the north of the European part of Russia.

Two radars are coming up in  in Gremikha and Zapolyarnoye, about 30 km away from the Russian-Norwegian border.These units will conduct round-the-clock surveillance of airspace above the northern regions of Norway and Finland.

Rezonans-N radar operate in the meter band and employ the principle of wave resonance, allowing it to detect stealth aircraft and hypersonic targets flying at a speed of up to Mach 20. The radar is capable of detecting targets at a distance of 600 km and at a range of 1,200 km on ballistic targets, at an altitude of up to 100 km.

These radars will guard the airspace which protects the Russian Northern Fleet.

As per the Rezonans-N brochure, the radar system includes up to four radar modules, each of it provides control in the azimuth sector of 90 degrees and can operate independently. Each radar module consists of a transmit antenna-feeder device, receive azimuth and elevation antenna-feeder devices, and a power amplifier. The radar data receiving and processing system provides data reception and processing in each of the four modules. Radar equipment is housed in containers. The probing signal generator and radar data receiving and processing equipment are digital and controlled by special processors. A solid power amplifier is used. The four modules cover 360-degree and r and occupies a 100 x 100 m area.
