The air defense missile systems – S-400, S-500 and ‘Vityaz’ will get an upgrade with new Tuf-MA and Tuf-M2 communication systems, currently being developed by the Russian air defense.

The new system will have the possibility of high-frequency tuning for electronic reconnaissance, equipping the defense missiles systems with a higher potential to evade enemy surveillance.

“The new S-400, S-500 and ‘Vityaz’ missiles will have the Tuf-MA and Tuf-M2 systems installed in them. This system will include a new modern design and digital signal processing systems that will decode signals and permit evading enemy,” the CEO of the United Instrument-Construction Corporation, Alexander Yakunin, was quoted as saying by Sputnik.

According to him the new system, “uses phased array antennas with digital beamforming, high frequency tuning for the protection against electronic reconnaissance and interference”.
