Mr. Mikheyev said there is a need for electronic warfare weapons.
"The radio-photonic radar will be able to see farther than existing radars, in our estimates. And, as we irradiate an enemy in an unprecedentedly wide range of frequencies, we'll know its position with the highest accuracy and after processing, we'll get an almost photographic image of it — radio vision. ... This is important for determining the type [of an aircraft]: The plane's computer will immediately and automatically identify a flying object, for example, an F-18 with specific types of missile armament," Mr. Mikheyev said.
