9S18M1-1 Snow Drift
9S18M1-1 Tube Arm target acquisition radar.
The 9K37 missile system utilises the 9S18 "Tube Arm" or 9S18M1 (NATO code name "Snow Drift") (Russian: СОЦ 9C18 "Купол"; English: dome) target acquisition radar in combination with the 9S35 or 9S35M1 "Fire Dome" H/I band tracking and engagement radar which is mounted on each TELAR. The Snow Drift target acquisition radar has a maximum detection range of 85 km and can detect an aircraft flying at 100m from 35 km away and even lower flying targets at a range of 20 km. Snow Drift is mounted on a chassis similar to that of the TELAR, as is the command vehicle. The control post which coordinates communications between the surveillance radar(s) and the launchers is able to communicate with up to six TELs at once. See picture #4727
