Testing of this radar began in 2010. The first deliveries of "Podlet-K1" to the Air Defense Forces of the Russian Federation began in 2015.

The complex is designed to provide target guidance for S-300, S-400 and similar air defense systems.

The universal mobile solid-state three-coordinate radar station "Podlet-K1" was created to detect small-sized, low-speed and low-flying air targets at low and extremely low altitudes in a complex obstacle environment.

First of all, it is used to detect cruise missiles, unmanned aerial vehicles and other aviation systems.

It is these radars that the Russians are now supplementing the S-400 air defense systems in important directions.

According to the developers, "Podlet-K1" is allegedly capable of detecting aerial objects at a maximum distance of up to 300 kilometers at heights of up to 10 kilometers. At the same time, the number of targets simultaneously accompanied by the complex is at least 200.
