OVERVIEW: The P-19 radar with the Kasta 2E1 Upgrade (NATO name: FLAT FACE E) is an mobile, 2-D early warning radar operating in the "C" Band.
DETAILS: The Kasta 2E1/ FLAT FACE E is a mobile early warning radar. The system features high jamming immunity and is reportedly reliable and easy to maintain. It also incorporates an IFF. The Kasta 2E1 and 2E2 are redesigned derivatives of the P-19 using a new carrier chassis and mostly digital hardware. The antenna aperture is also increased, improving range performance. Weapon systems associated with the P-19 include the SA-2 GUIDELINE, SA-3 GOA, SA-6 GAINFUL and SA-8 GEKO, as well as the SA-60 57mm AAA gun.
Frequency: 825-890 Mhz (C-Band) Power output: PRF: Range Resolution: 300 m/ 1.1 degrees azimuth Runup time: up to 3.3 minutes Set up time: up to 20 minutes
Detection Ranges (14 m/50 m tower height) 100 m altitude: 32 / 53 km 1000m: 95 / 105 km 4000 m alt.: 150 km
NOTES: The P-19 Kasta 2E1 system is mounted in two vehicles: an antenna mounted on a single truck and the electronic equipment contained in a second truck, which tows a generator trailer. Because of their low power-aperture ratings this family of radars is not regarded as being very effective against low-observable aircraft and drones.
