Ukrainian Defense Ministry buys 19 emitters for helicopter stations of optical-electronic suppression of ADROS KT-01AB missiles, reports Messenger of Mordovia.


The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine decided to protect its helicopters from guided missiles


The equipment will be delivered to the 16th separate army brigade aviationbased at Brody airfield in the Lviv region.

According to the product manufacturers, ADROS was intended to “provide highly effective active protection of helicopters against guided missiles with infrared homing heads of various types”.

Among the guided missiles against which the station is to operate are indicated the Soviet “Needle” and “Needle-1”, as well as the American “Stingers” and their analogues.

“The events of the summer of 2014 in the Donbas demonstrated that among the downed helicopters were, among other things, helicopters equipped with ADROS. However, these stations of optoelectronic suppression could not neutralize the militia’s MANPADS missiles, ”writes the publication with reference to Diana Mikhailova’s blog.

At the same time, the author assumes that the products sold have undergone some improvement, “otherwise this deal will become another attempt to cut the Ukrainian budget and will surely turn into new losses for Poroshenko’s falcons.”

    Moreover, the author admits that the products sold have undergone some improvement, “otherwise this transaction will be another attempt to cut the Ukrainian budget and will necessarily result in new losses for the Poroshenko“ falcons ”. with any cut, sawdust is sprinkled - nothing new was invented request

    “The events of the summer of 2014 in the Donbass demonstrated that among the downed helicopters there were, among other things, rotorcraft equipped with ADROS. However, these optoelectronic suppression stations could not neutralize the militia’s MANPADS missiles. ”

    And the men didn’t know (s) ....

    Why ukroboronprom is good for LDNR - it is promoting its dubious successes as breakthrough ones. In practice, these improvements for the most part are zilch, about which the Ukrainian authorities are diligently silent, because the budget has already been cut, awards and fees have been spent. I would like to clarify, how many APU vehicles are left in the ranks, which this device can hypothetically protect?

      They have helicopters. As for the device, I am tormented by suspicions that a fly swatter rolled up from a newspaper is more effective against missiles.

        In vain. This thing is a heater, around which a fixed grid and a rotating one. As a result, the infrared radiation is “flickering”. If you know the frequency of the modulating disk of the GOS-rocket (And for the Needle, they know it perfectly), then we get a noise leading away in an angle. Similar to the ancient conical scanning radar method. I do not think that in artisanal conditions someone will "modify" old MANPADS.

          But only in Afghanistan, the stingers came precisely to the "linden".

            Do you have statistics? Of course not. Do you know why? Because in rare cases, when it was possible to take the wreckage for examination, only months later they sparingly finished it in the part concerning "Intrusion of foreign metal .... presumably ...". And the L-166 was a meter away from the EVU (ears), so with all the desire to determine where the Stinger was heading, it would not work. Soviet designers were not rams. I don’t know about the present.

              I will not argue. But the fact that the crews say so "beware" to include "linden" is a fact.

    An interesting thing, similar to "LIPU" (L-166). Two circular grilles, one is motionless, the second is spinning. In the center is a heating spiral in glass. Just right for 220 - stuck and heated when it was cold. Now it’s difficult to put a hindrance in the corner, even knowing what they pulled. The missiles are getting smarter.

    Without such systems it’s dangerous to fly, they can shoot down even at low altitude

      at low altitude and in a tight line of 23mm shells you can run into .. along the way in Ukraine it’s dangerous to fly at all ... at any height.

        Judging by the result, then a sledgehammer! But in fact it’s not clear.

    In order to protect Ukrainian helicopters from missiles, I propose lubricating Ukrainian helicopters with fat, they will become slippery and the missiles will simply slide off, as soon as they reach the target.
    You can soap of course ... but it will not slip when it dries.
