The KITE SCREECH antenna supports a radar that provides airborne and sea surface target tracking data to anti-aircraft naval guns, i.e., 100mm or larger guns, on former Soviet Union (FSU) navy ships. The size of the circular parabolic dish appears to be nearly 2m (6 ft) in diameter. The antenna's complex feed structure is supported by three supporting arms. The antenna is  attached to a large, environmental container which possibly houses the electronics for the radar. The radar operates in the I and possibly K radio-bands (8-10 GHz and possibly 20-40 GHz). The target detection and tracking range is 11-22 km (8-12 mi.). This radar is on-board FSU large navy ships, i.e., cruisers, destroyers and possibly other ships.
