The Russian Defense Ministry will purchase eighteen MR-232 Bussol-S stationary coastal radar stations before 2020 to control the surface picture.
The contract costs a total of 105.3 million rubles.

The radar station can detect all kinds of – floating objects: from a fishing boat to an ocean liner ship. Bussol-S has another distinguishing feature, which differs it from all the existing radio-technical means that are in service with Russian fleet units. The radar’s operation range of up to 40 kilometers makes it possible to track the situation not only in the territorial waters but also at approaches to them.
