55Zh6ME Nebo-M RLM-ME

The Nebo-M is a 3D radar system that features a programmable multi-band design. The radar complex is made up of a central data fusion, a command post module and three radars which are deployed on separate 8x8 24-ton trucks.
55Zh6ME Nebo-M RLM-ME is the VHF-Radar component of this radar system (in cyrillic: 55Ж6МЕ «Небо-МЕ»)

Nebo-M RLM-ME is a 3-D acquisition radar. It is the successor to the 1L13 Nebo-SV “Box Spring” and is easy to distinguish from it since the direction of polarization is vertical rather than horizontal. The system can be deployed or stowed in 40 minutes.
