KRET's non-lethal smart weapon

39
KRET's non-lethal smart weaponRussian aviation Khibiny’s electronic countermeasures complex (EEC) became known even to housewives after the incident with the Donald Cook, an American destroyer that entered the Black Sea. Let us briefly recall the essence of the matter.


15 April 2014, one of the Internet sites in the section "Conjectures" published an article "Khibiny" against "Aegis" or What did the Pentagon so much scare? ". The author spoke about the overflight of the Su-24, which has the Khibiny complex, the US warship Donald Cook, which was located in the Black Sea. The work of the equipment on board the destroyer was completely suppressed by the Khibiny complex, which disarmed the ship.

The article was later removed from the site as incorrect. The Russian military nonetheless acknowledged: the overflight was, our plane did not commit any hostile actions, the Khibiny complex was not installed on the Su-24 aircraft. The latter is a controversial issue. At least because the model of the Su-24M with a container of electronic countermeasure equipment KS-418 was exhibited at one of the MAKS air show.

PENTAGON IS AUTHORIZED TO APPLY

The reality of the incident was indirectly confirmed by the official representative of the Pentagon, calling the actions of the Su-24 pilot provocative. According to him, the Russian aircraft, apparently, did not have military weapons on its board, but 12 once passed near the US Navy ship. Actually, there is nothing strange that far from being a new front bomber without weapons passed several times near the newest US-armed destroyer armed to the teeth. Such overflights of ships were before practically at each meeting of probable opponents.

After the incident, as reported by the media, 27 man of the crew of "Donald Cook" wrote a letter of resignation. The Pentagon’s statement, by the way, claimed that the actions of the Russian Su-24 demoralized the crew of the ship. According to many military experts, the reason is in the use of the Khibiny complex by our bomber. And the American crew has demoralized its own powerlessness. According to experts, the destroyer from a distance spotted the Su-24 approach, brought the weapon into a state of readiness for use. And suddenly all his screens went out - so suddenly the screen of a mobile phone goes out. The Aegis system did not work. The screens came to life when the "drying" went to the Russian coast.

Skeptics claim that the Su-24 could not immobilize the destroyer due to lack of interference power, which happened - the result of work from the shore of another complex - “Krasuha-4”. But one way or another, the sediment remained. The reason, apparently, is that both the Russian military and the creators of Khibiny were modestly afraid of “international scandal”.

And one more conclusion from what happened: a non-lethal weapon, such as the Khibiny complex, or, alternatively, a smart weapon, in its effectiveness can be compared with a weapon of destruction.

OPERATING PRINCIPLE

As the developers of the complex say, it is intended for radio direction finding of the probing signal of the irradiation source with subsequent substitution of the signal parameters. That is, after receiving radiation from an airplane radar or enemy air defense system, this signal is distorted beyond recognition with the help of special equipment. As a result, the opponent who received him remains at a loss: what to do with “this”? As a result, the aircraft carrier KREP will be seen with great delay, if at all seen, as it will be disguised against the background of false targets. The enemy will face great difficulties in determining the distance to the target, its speed and angular position.

The complex provides individual protection of aircraft against rocket attacks of enemy fighters and ground-based air defense systems, creating a protective electronic field around the aircraft, as a result of the radar and guided missiles lose their target. Our planes become invisible to the enemy. The technology for realizing this is that, upon receiving an analog microwave signal from a target, the EW complex converts it to digital form, processes it, “endows” with interfering modulation, again converts it to analog form, and emits in the direction of the target - the enemy’s weapon is “blinded”.

The Khibiny complex is equipped with front-flight aviation aircraft. In terms of the composition of equipment and apparatus, the problems to be solved and the effectiveness of its use, it surpasses almost all EW tools that are in service with many foreign countries.

Born in Kaluga

And now a little stories. The work on creating the prototype of the Khibiny KREP began at the Kaluga Radio Engineering Research Institute (KNIRTI is a member of the KRET. - “NVO”) at the end of the 80s. The first samples of "Khibiny" were not suitable for installation on an aircraft in terms of weight and dimensions, but KNIRTI established close cooperation with the Sukhoi Design Bureau, as a result the problem was solved. In 1990, the first sample of the Khibiny passed acceptance tests, but the collapse of the USSR, the reduction in funding for military developments slowed down the course of development work.

The first flight of the aircraft with the Khibiny electronic countermeasures complex was made only in January of the 1995 year.

In addition to a complex of electronic countermeasures for individual protection, an incremental additional Khibin composition was created in suspension containers for group protection of aircraft. Currently, KNIRTI has mastered the mass production of these protection means and delivers them to the Russian Defense Ministry.

Participating from 2014 in the operation of the Russian HQS in Syria, the aircraft are equipped with the Khibiny and Khibiny-M complexes. They include electronic intelligence systems and active jamming systems. An export modification of the Khibiny complex - SAP was developed. The equipment of the Khibiny complex is installed in containers at the ends of the wings, as well as in the rear compartment.

Concern Radioelectronic Technologies (KRET) officially stated that Russian VKS aircraft are massively equipped with the latest Khibiny complexes: individual and group protection equipment is installed on the Su-34, the Khibiny-M complex is installed on the latest Su-35 and Su-27СМ3 . In this version, Russia offers for export the most advanced EW facilities, “run-in” in combat conditions in Syria.

The presentation of the Khibiny-M aviation protection complex, prepared by the Radio Electronic Technologies concern to MAKS-2017, mentions the purpose of the equipment: providing individual protection for Su-35 and Su-27СМ3 aircraft against attacks by interceptor missile systems and air defense systems. Types of suppressed objects: airborne radar F-14, F-22, F-35, Rafale, Patriot, TLVS, SAMP, AMRAAM guided missiles. The likelihood of a breakdown of an attack is estimated to be at least 0,9.

EXPORT VARIANT

Each product manufactured by JSC Concern Radioelectronic Technologies is in its own way unique and inimitable. They combine the highest scientific and technical achievements of the Russian military industrial complex. Among the main domestic producers of EW funds, KRET is undoubtedly leading. Its market share is up to 60%. Means and EW complexes developed by the concern are equipped with Su-25, Su-27CM-NNXX, Su-3CM, Su-30, Su-34С, Il-35, Il-76, Il-78, Helicopters, Tu-96, Helicopters, Helicopters and Helicopters, helicopters, helicopters, helicopters, helicopters, and helicopters; , Mi-214, Mi-8, Mi-26 and Ka-28, surface ships of the projects 35, 52, 1144, 1164, 1155, 956, 11540, 22350.

The most favorable situation for the group is in the market for aviation systems and EW facilities. This is due to the growing demand for these funds in the world. The conditions are dictated by the expected growth in the supply of Russian aircraft, as well as the increase in the share of aircraft supplied with EW equipment for individual and group protection. In addition, it is expected that foreign states will purchase EW funds when modernizing their own fleet of Russian-made aircraft and helicopters.

        Do you want to discover in advance the capabilities of our electronic warfare?
        To enable the adversary to remove the signal parameters, the number of emitters that the system can counteract, range, etc.
        Those. Do you offer to give them the opportunity to work out a reaction in advance?
        A very ill-conceived decision is harmful.
        The adversary should not provoke the use, in order to obtain the parameters of electronic warfare systems - let them remain ignorant - one demonstration (check) is quite enough.

        According to the actions of our EW battalion, the adversary in the GSVG remembers how the F-16 squadrons that were relocating from Italy (almost until the fuel was completely depleted) "crushed" the squadron AWACS from the airspace of West Germany.

      Our EW battalion in the GSVG - even in those years carried out tasks of this kind - disrupt the orientation of aircraft by suppressing the signals of radio beacons, interrupt communications with the air traffic controller of the flight zone, suppress the transmission of information by the flight dispatcher, and force them to leave the zone.
      Of course, it’s difficult to “break up” a reconnaissance aircraft or AWACS (disrupting a rendezvous with an air tanker), creating conditions for losing orientation - on large sides, in addition to standard radio navigation aids, there are inertial navigation systems, there are navigators in the end, but complicate their lives - it was possible in those years.
      But for single-seat aircraft or unmanned aerial vehicles - it is quite possible to create conditions, orientation losses close to catastrophic - there were precedents.

    After the incident, as reported by the media, 27 crew of Donald Cook wrote a letter of resignation. The Pentagon statement, incidentally, stated that the actions of the Russian Su-24 demoralized the crew of the ship. According to many military experts, the reason is the use of the Khibiny complex by our bomber. And the American crew demoralized their own powerlessness.

      And suddenly all its screens went blank - so suddenly the screen of a mobile phone goes blank. The Aegis system did not work ...

      And they are not a bit embarrassed that EW does not work like this, EW interferes, and does not cut down electricity like EMP. No.

      Again there is no tax in the world. This conclusion seems to have been made on the basis of the fact that adequate armies try not to advertise their electronic warfare capabilities, rightly considering them to be a significant help in the factor of surprise. sad

      Khibiny (product L-175В) - Soviet / Russian aviation complex of electronic countermeasures (CREP). Tasks of the complex:
      1. Delays in detecting the KREP carrier aircraft as an object of attack for the enemy.
      2. Disguises a true object against a false background.
      3. Difficulties in measuring the distance to an object, its speed and angular position.
      4. Deterioration of the characteristics of the tracking mode “on the aisle” when scanning a beam of a radar antenna.
      5. Increases in time and difficulty in capturing an object when switching to continuous direction finding mode.

        What did you want to say? That Cook didn’t leave for Constanta after the flyby? Or that it was "according to the plan" of Khibiny or Kraukh or Everest with Kazbek - there is no difference. Cook walked along the Black Sea, circled his Su-24R and Suddenly Cook ran like a man blown up in a Romanian port. Here he took and ran away.

          Was the potential adversary demoralized?

          Yes, so much so that later continued "hikes."
          Only in 2015, NATO ships passed through the Bosphorus more than twenty times. The vessels moored not only in Varna, but also in nearby Burgas. And also in Georgian Batumi and Ukrainian Odessa. In 2016, alliance activity in the Black Sea declined slightly. But since the beginning of this year, resumed again. So, on Friday, the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine reported that the headquarters ship of the Polish Navy, Rear Admiral Chernitsky, and three minesweepers from the naval forces of Germany, Turkey and Spain arrived in Odessa.

          NATO strengthens the grouping in the Black Sea. On the eve of the invisible frigate "Lafayette" F710 from France to the Bulgarian port of Varna.

          For the whole day, the Russian Ministry of Defense could not find a clear explanation for the press where the Baltic Fleet ships that had just arrived in St. Petersburg so quickly went to participate in the May 9 parade. As Fontanka found out that Victory Day smells of gunpowder, the Baltic Fleet was reminded by an American destroyer who had approached the internal waters of Russia at a distance sufficient for a potential missile strike.


          all thoughts of the Russian Defense Ministry on 9 May were directed to the Gdansk Bay, where the USS Carney (DDG-64) entered / the same type of Karni destroyer Porter recently launched 59 tomahawks in Syria. /

            Yes? And at first they seemed to write that "joint maneuvers with the Romanian Navy" were outlined ... too lazy to stir up the Internet ...

              In the harbor of the port of Constanta? He went to Odessa, to demonstrate the flag and support. On the way to conduct reconnaissance and provoke the Crimea.
              By the BO Bal Ball, it was still highlighted.

                It seems that the report comes from the conning tower of Donald Cook ...
                The fact that he was going to Odessa was indeed announced by the Americans themselves. But the fact that he rushed to Constanta, suddenly - did not comment. In addition, the Americans themselves, upon the arrival of the ship in Constanta, made a reservation about the 27 resigned, this is not the notion of an “evil” KGB. So the cause-effect relationship is obvious - flying around the ship (or irradiating electronic warfare from the coast, we certainly don’t know) - changing plans and “pushing” to Constanta - dismissing part of the crew.
                Maybe the Su-24 has nothing to do with it, but, as they say, spoons have been found, but the sediment remains.

                    There is no reference. The source of this stuffing is a site made by us. The author did not provide any evidence, although he painted and disconnected in colors, and 27 left. When this story spun and even showed through the federal media, the author issued a refutation in which he admitted that all this is just his assumptions. Of course, nobody remembers the second article. Nobody even indirectly confirmed the laughter of this whole tale.

    And suddenly all its screens went blank - so suddenly the screen of a mobile phone goes blank. The Aegis system did not work. Screens came to life

    and when the screens came to life, they began to show the film "Lenin in October."
    The lights are always off before the show, there are probably three more calls. laughing

    How much can you procrastinate? The presented complex is a light invisible hat. Well, or an attempt to such a hat. It cannot suppress the work of ship systems. Because and was not created for this.

    This, of course, is great! Well done !!! Is it possible to develop such electronic defense means that would allow changing the flight path of a rocket to the exact opposite, i.e. redirect the missile to the installation that released it, which would lead to the fact that this installation, for example, "Patriot" would be destroyed.

      Well, while the porridge is cooked, anecdotes are apparently read, so the ash root is also known about the Khibiny.
