1L220-U, NATO designation: “Zoopark-2” (Cyrillic: 1Л220У «Зоопарк-2»), is an artillery detection radar operating in F-band. It is capable of detecting the positions of mortars, guns, rockets and tactical missile batteries. It can estimate impact points of enemy fire as well as provide fire correction for friendly artillery. The 1L220-U has an internal navigation and orientation system that enables autonomous operation.
The radar uses a passive phased array antenna with linear vertical polarization. The fully coherent transmitter is equipped with a traveling wave tube as power amplifier.
The 1L220-U was delivered to the Ukrainian Armed Forces starting in 1999.
