BR 2140

BR 2140 is operating in X-Band battlefield surveillance radar mounted on a 14 m tower as a superstructure on the mechanized infantry combat vehicle BMP-1 that got the Czech designation “Snĕžka”. It is coupled with a laser range finder and multiple visible lights, and infrared-sensitive cameras.

The radar can detect a person at a range of 9 km and a tank at a range of 33 km. It can measure artillery explosions with an accuracy of 20 m within the radar range for an artillery explosion being 15 km.

This radar is essentially a derivate of the EL/M-2140 radar. It entered service in 1997.
