Detection Ranges (Fighter-size aircraft) 500 m altitude: 60 km 10,000 m altitude: 250 km 27,000 m altitude: 350 km
NOTES: IOC 1986. Capable of being used as part of a radar system to provide a valuable early warning capability against low observable aircraft. As part of an IADS system, the 1L13 Nebo would be used to cue the high power aperture X-band systems to a small acquisition box in which the VLO aircraft can be found.
