Equipment of Air defense systems with search, search-and-track and track electro-optical systems must be done with allowance for the system’s structure, it’s task character, conventional posture and possibility of performance characteristics securing. If multi-target regime is required and multiple weapon delivery is needed, it is advisable to implement the Air-defense system with electro-optical systems of different type. Search-and-track systems provide search and tracking of several air targets in a given field of search, as well as guided missile fire control functions. To obtain data on target range, automatic precision guidance and laser illumination, embedded laser long-range surveillance scope must be implemented.
