Description: The article is devoted to the problem protection of modernized radar type P-18MA and P-18 Malakhit from pulse noise. These radars have considerably better technical characteristics and demonstrated their effectiveness, first of all, with the detection of small-scale targets such as unmanned aerial vehicles and even individual rocket systems of rocket fire in certain areas of the trajectory, which causes their involvement to illuminate the airspace over the zone of air pollution. An analysis structure of probing signal was performed, indicating that the component is used to view the detection zone. To view long distances, a long time is used, a complex radio impulse with intra-pulse modulation that potentially provides high quality pulse noise selection. The near zone is viewed by a simple radio pulse which has much worse potential for eliminating impulse noise. The experience use of radiotechnics units during the ATOs indicates that it is in this zone a large proportion of low-volume airspace are found, in particular, unmanned aerial vehicles, the tactics of which involve the use of heights of up to 100 meters. To improve the quality of noise protection in the near zone, it is suggested to use a multi-frequency probing signal, a variant of the pulse noise selection device is proposed, its efficiency is estimated and the optimal number of frequency subchannels is determined. Methods of mathematical statistics were used to make calculations, the results of calculations were estimated using the method of comparative analysis. The dependence of the probability of pulse noise selection on the number of frequency subchannels for different intensity of influences is obtained. It is shown that the probability of correct separation grows with the growth of the number frequency subchannels. In the low intensity effects of the quality distinction is reduced. This is due to the effect of masking their own noises. With increasing intensity of influence, the quality of differentiation increases, but not so much. This is due to a decrease in the effect of masking noise. Further increase in the intensity of significant influence does not, because the effect of noise is very small. Sufficiently qualitative selection of impulse interferences is provided already at application of two - three frequency subchannels.
