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 “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.
