"Admiral Kuznetsov" will receive the latest aviation flight control system

The Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft cruiser will be equipped with a digital radio engineering flight control system aviation, reported News.

As the newspaper was told at the Main Command of the Navy, the new "radio-technical complex will be designed to provide short-range navigation for aircraft, control their movement, ensure the approach and the landing itself." The main task of the system is to automate the landing of aircraft on the deck of a ship.

According to the military, "MiG-29K / KUB carrier-based fighters already have all the necessary equipment, but the automatic landing mode has not yet been tested." The difficulty here is that “one moving object must be guided onto another - moreover, strictly along a given trajectory and with exceptional accuracy, otherwise you can damage the aircraft.”

When in the 2000 for the Indian Navy, the former Soviet TAVKR Admiral Gorshkov was rebuilt, customers set the condition: “the ship must act around the clock, in any weather.” So the modernized radio-technical complex "Resistor" was created.

The patriarch of our carrier-based aviation horizontal take-off and landing Viktor G. Pugachev said that he did not see anything more complicated and dangerous in his flight work than landing at night on a ship. The pilot acts at the limit of their capabilities. Therefore, the first landing is marked especially
told test pilot Hero of Russia Oleg Mutovin.

He added that the Resistor complex showed itself well on the Indian aircraft carrier Vikramaditya.

If in the process of modernization "Kuznetsov" equip with a similar system, it will be a big breakthrough. This will allow you to calmly and accurately land at night and in adverse weather conditions. The combat capabilities of the ship will increase significantly,
noted Mutovin.

Currently, the Indian Navy is successfully operating the Resistor complex created in the Russian Federation. The system allows landing in the director mode (at the same time, the pilot manually tracks the indicators leading him to a given trajectory). Until a certain point, it passes automatically, but at the final stage, when approaching the ship, the pilots take control.

The complex, which will be installed on Kuznetsov, will ensure landing in a fully automatic mode.

    Good news! drinks It’s time to bring our only aircraft carrier to mind. I would like to note that once again foreign contracts save our defense industry. The article does not ambiguously say how technologies from the former Admiral Gorshkov are replicated on Kuznetsovo.

      If during the modernization process the Kuznetsov is equipped with such a system, this will be a big breakthrough.

      It's time.
      At present, the Indian Navy is successfully operating the Resistor complex created in the Russian Federation.

      But why "Kuznetsova" why equip, better than the Indians. what

        The Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft cruiser will be equipped with a digital radio engineering complex for aviation flight control

        They will install it, and then we will discuss it. The complex is needed, definitely.

          hello! hi complexes are good. definitely! but, damn it, it is better to check the aerofinisher cables again (and more than once)

    Have you forgotten about the planes? Old ones begin to crumble, but new ones are not ordered yet. Apparently they are waiting for something new, or as always: "Does the ataman have a dumb gold reserve?" request

    The automatic landing of the NII-33 fighters (VNIIRA JSC) worked out in 1964. Then we performed it on the MiG-21. This was my Ph.D. dissertation. Currently, Navigator JSC has conducted all studies with NIIIT JSC (developer of the Resistor complex). The article correctly noted that automation operates up to 270 meters to the edge of the stern of an aircraft carrier. Then the pilot takes control. These two organizations have forces that will bring the process to automation. It's necessary. Soon it will be necessary to control the flight and landing of drones (heavy). Everything will turn out.

    The radio navigation and landing complex for the Admiral Kuznetsov ship was created and delivered. It surpasses in its characteristics the analogue set for India. Serious comprehensive research is needed to ensure automatic landing. A lot of dissertations have been written on this subject, but not everything is in order with the implementation. But we are working on this problem and hope to soon ensure the landing of not only controlled aircraft but also drones.
