Russia’s Radio-Electronic Technologies Concern (KRET) – a subsidiary of the Rostec state corporation – unveiled the N025E mast-mounted radar for the Mil Mi-28N/NE ‘Havoc-B’ combat helicopters during the HeliRussia 2018 exhibition in Moscow.
The N025E is an all-weather, Ka-band radar that is designed to detect moving and stationary objects. It comprises a swivelling parabolic antenna and a processing unit, with the antenna housed in a mast-mounted dome above the main rotor and the processing unit integrated into the helicopter’s fuselage.
The radar can perform simultaneous tracking of up to four ground or air target at ranges of up to 20 km, and facilitates low-level flight by keeping track of obstacles. It can also detect a dangerous meteorological formation out to 100 km.
It has a traverse angle of 180° and a field of view of -25° to +15°, and searches for ground targets in a 90° sector with a deflection angle of 35°.
