Beriev is curently developing two versions of airplanes based on Be-200, a AEWAC possibly named Be-250 (with a side radar being developed by Vega), and a second one named Be-300 as Search and Rescue aircraft and an anti-submarive version called Be-300 MP, which will be equipped with the Kasatka system, being developed by JSC Radar MMS. 

It's a combination of a radar and a firing control system. This system is going to be installed also on the amphibious version of Be-200 MP.
