ArmInfo. Antihail Russian company, in addition to the previously stipulated 2 anti-hail missile installations, will provide Armenia with another one, out of 2 will be installed in the Aragatsotn district  of Armenia, 1 in Armavir.

According to Armenian MES press service, the  head of the department visited the radar station of the Artashavan community in Aragatsotn, got acquainted with the progress of its modernization in the framework of Government's program for the introduction of a new anti-hail missile defense system. The radar will serve these installations. At this stage, the station in 1973 is equipped with new digital equipment with the help of specialists from Russia.

"New antihail missile  launchers will be delivered to Armenia next month, and launched in October this will ensure reliable protection against the hail of 45 thousand hectares of agricultural land," the ministry reports.

To note, in September in Armavir and Aragatsotn districts a new system of anti-hail missile defense will be tested in the pilot version. Earlier, under the order of the Ministry of Emergency Situations, the company Antihail carried out research on the basis of which it presented mechanisms and possibilities for the modernization of the Armenian anti-hail systems. Speech, first of all, is about the possibility of automatic application of missile technologies in order to reduce the damage to agricultural crops. According to preliminary estimates, every year the country's agriculture is losing about 5-6 percent of the crop from hail loss. Meanwhile, the use of advanced missile technology will allow 80-90% to reduce this damage.  Modernization is subject to radar stations, the presence of which will effectively use anti-hail facilities and aircraft. Research company Antihail was conducted on an area of 1.134 million hectares, compiled a map of the most suitable sites for station location. Their installation will minimize the human factor, it will be managed from a single center. In addition, missiles do not pose a threat of explosion, they are safe for aircraft, because of the maximum height of 5-6 km. The application of the new system will be effective not only for agriculture, but also for the smooth operation of civil aviation. The presented system is accessible and effective, capable of being used for 15-20 years. According to official data, as of the end of October 2016, according to the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Armenia, there are 496 anti-hail stations in the republic, but 5000 stations are needed to protect farms from hail.
