Britain will create a new control system for the Air Force

39
The British Defense Ministry will spend £ 80 million on a new computer control system of the Air Force, which will more effectively and quickly identify attempts to bring foreign aircraft to the air borders of the kingdom, reports RIA News.




The Ministry of Defense is investing 80 million pounds in a new computer system, which will increase the speed and accuracy of the Air Force. Known as the Guardian project, the new system will support the ability of early detection and rapid response to the actions of potentially hostile or suspicious aircraft that may pose a threat to British sovereignty, belong to the terrorists or forces that are backed by states. The new system will replace the existing, located in the UK and the Falkland Islands,
reads a written statement from Secretary of Defense Gavin Williamson.

It is reported that the new system will allow pilots to act in close coordination with NATO air forces. “Based on computer technology, the system will provide the commanders with a dynamic and real-time picture of the airspace near the British borders,” said the head of department.

The installation tender was won by IBM.

The minister recalled that "since 2013, the British Air Force 68 fighters once took off to accompany or monitor suspicious aircraft." And half of these emergency departures came in support of Russian aircraft.

These breakthrough technologies will give our Air Force an advantage over rapidly changing and ever-increasing global threats,
the statement said.

Previously, Williamson, known for his shocking and unrestrained attacks on Moscow, promised by the summer of this year to present a large strategy for the rearmament of the Ground Forces, the Air Force and fleet.

The multibillion-dollar costs of modernizing the armed forces at the Kingdom’s Ministry of Defense are attributed to increased threats, including from Russia.

      They need to increase the number of aircraft. Typhoon and Tornado - the basis of the British Air Force. But the first is raw, and the second is already narrower. And the first are more on the ground. Interestingly, a hundred UK fighters are able to lift into the sky? And what about the F-35 tests? With the cost of it, England could undermine the budget of the Air Force. hi

              Glory here to hint at an occupation at least unpromising ... smile Sovereignty, as it were, implies independence. We do not seem to need them, Assad, too, is unlikely to Iran (the climate is not theirs). Depend entirely on the United States, from whom sovereignty defends the issue of questions ... request

        There was nothing to creak about it. In our information age, the air defense subsystems are becoming very fast and global, so if the British have the headstock to upgrade such capabilities, then it’s a sin not to use it. Most likely, such an upgrade is waiting for the entire NATO bloc to receive data from the advanced points in the Baltic states or in Norway would be distributed almost instantly to the military headquarters of the participating countries and directly to the duty units of the air defense.

        They undermined their defenses when they lay down under the allies. Funding problems are solved by “cutting off” even successful programs: the deaths of their fighters in Afghanistan, when they could not pull out their own and the “allies” threw, did not teach anything: politicians don't give a damn.
        And by the way about typhoons, as the ex raf pilot told me: they do not belong to raf, they belong to the manufacturer, raf rents them, as it were.

        They live in the last century. A normal country no longer needs to enter their airspace to bring all this armada into scrap metal directly on the ground. Although the most powerful army in Europe, they can also dismiss it. Apparently, their newly made Sumerian partners are not very trusted, and they are ready to throw all 2 and a half aircraft into battle.

      Question-Why? The Britons have Cerberus in the face of the US military machine ... For a long time, Great Britain is not a sovereign country, but one of the territorial enclaves of the United States. I will say more, they and the Challengers are not needed for nothing. The only thing that is somehow relevant for them is the fleet.

    As I understand it, it is enough to replace the software on the old British fighters and this will be a breakthrough in the tasks of protecting the country from Russian?
    And then I all soared over turbines, weapons, but the Americans in general in the "stealth" hit an adult!

    80 million pounds in a new computer system that will increase the speed and accuracy of the Air Force
    They used up more for staging chemical attacks in Syria and provocations with the Skripals. Although a new toy for the generals and some correction of the financial situation of customers of Russophobic scandals should be enough.

Known as the Guardian project, the new system will support the ability to detect and respond quickly to the actions of potentially hostile or suspicious aircraft that could threaten British sovereignty, belong to terrorists, or the forces behind states. The new system will replace existing ones located in the UK and the Falkland Islands

    What are we talking about? If it’s about speed and accuracy, then these are guidance and control systems, and then what about the early detection system? Or will it be two in one? Yeah ... Recently, Westerners have become increasingly difficult to understand ... Indeed, it seems like another knocking out of money.

    The normal desire of the generals, and politicians, too, to become stronger .... only the alternative is sour, you will spend money on armaments, without a real prospect you will sell a lot, everyone in a row, you will have expensive and hardly good weapons! There will be much to be missed inside!
    However, we can spit on financial discipline and print pounds with wagons .... like striped, but it’s not difficult to guess how to get out of it! They are not hegemons, however!
    However, figs at them, they can ask the Minister of War of Babskikh Diseases for advice, she knows!

      In fact, Britain was once considered the "Queen of the Seas" and was the largest empire ... keywords WHEN IT WAS! It is still not a weak state, but not militarily! A calm life under the umbrella of a big brother can have different consequences.

    Why do they need it? For fun and by inertia, they are called great ... they hope to sit out again on the island ... pragmatically shaved to the bone ... they don’t need super powerful and large armed forces ... and what they have is enough to participate in the US gambles and police missions by small contingents away from home. And the pshekas / pawns are just in their place and should fall under the distribution if something happens ...
