Su-57 is able to perform tasks at almost 100 percent in automatic mode

52
The fifth-generation export model of the Su-57E fighter is the latest combat aircraft of the Russian military space forces. Its performance characteristics allow it to carry out any combat missions in the most difficult weather conditions. At the same time, Sukhoi can attack both air targets at oncoming courses or “beyond the horizon”, and ground targets. According to the Chinese edition of Sina, the 5 fighter of the Su-57 generation of the Russian Aerospace Forces can operate in automatic mode at almost 100%.


Su-57 is able to perform tasks at almost 100 percent in automatic mode


This model of Sukhoi Design Bureau was developed as an invisible aircraft. Compared with the fourth generation of fighters, the Su-57 has reduced visibility in the radar and infrared ranges. Additional advantages of fifth-generation fighters in relation to their predecessors are more radio-protected avionics and all types weapons on board the aircraft, as well as its cruising speed in supersonic mode.

In addition, the Su-57E surpasses all 4 ++ generation fighters in other key combat and aerodynamic characteristics. To begin with, it is more multifunctional. It fully implements the concept of combining automation and “artificial intelligence” technologies in air combat. At the same time, the fighter’s arsenal includes high-precision guided long-range missiles, with which the pilot can aim and destroy several targets at once. And last but not least, the exceptional maneuverability of this aircraft.

Obviously, the most advanced innovation of this military equipment of the domestic aviation industry is the “artificial intelligence” (AI) technology, which is the basis of the Su-57E information management system. It is the use of AI that provides an unprecedentedly high degree of automation of the latest Sukhoi Design Bureau fighter. Based on the performance characteristics of the aircraft, it can solve up to 90% of the tasks in automatic mode. This is really one of the best indicators to date.

With such autonomous work, the pilot selects the best solution from the proposed list of actions. While the final choice still remains with the pilot, as well as his decision to press the trigger at one time or another. True, there is an option for a fully autonomous flight of the aircraft according to the program laid on the ground. In this case, the commander of the Su-57 will only determine the best moment of the beginning of the attack. Moreover, in critical cases of loss of consciousness or serious injury to the pilot, the autonomous on-board control will be able to save the fighter.

Aircraft at this level of technology are closely approaching unmanned aerial vehicles with a maximum degree of robotization and autonomy. A central role in such aircraft technology is played by its electronic “brains” - the “information management system” (IMS).

IMS is a set of on-board software (software), in which the maximum knowledge of specialized design engineers and the real experience of a large number of professional pilots are embedded. In another way, this system is called an “invisible pilot” or “electronic pilot”. Moreover, in other areas of industry, such complexes are also actively developed and applied, often calling them "expert systems." So the Su-57 IMS is like the newest militaryaviation "Expert system".

The primary task of the IMS software suite is the constant recording of data from on-board sensors and devices about the enemy within the identification radius, a comprehensive analysis of this input information and the development of a number of pilot recommendations for further actions. Computers of modern avionics cope with these tasks quite easily. But the choice of the final decision is still up to the pilot, who at the same time relies on his personal experience and professional training.

Work in this direction began about 15 years ago, when there were no expert systems in the field of aviation at all. The project manager for the development of the domestic information and control system of the aircraft was Dmitry Gribov. He recalled that there were plenty of problems in creating aviation expert systems, up to the lack of reliable computer peripherals. However, despite this, now the artificial intelligence of the IMS Su-57 already knows how, after processing the data collected by the on-board sensors, to give the pilot a set of optimized solutions.

So, now on-board fighter systems can accurately assess the degree of threat of a particular missile, and based on this analysis, the ICS offers the pilot options for evading or destroying, in fact, a flying target. This significantly increases the combat effectiveness of the aircraft.

It is noteworthy that in the pre-computer era, the cost of any aircraft was determined only by the price of its "hardware" - construction and equipment. But at the moment, the software and on-board electronics of the aircraft can be several orders of magnitude more expensive than the rest of the aircraft equipment. It is logical that, starting with the Su-57 with its powerful artificial intelligence IMS, the cost of on-board software began to be included in the total design cost of aircraft.

      Fifteen years later, we will hear from the youth "Can you imagine, but earlier people were put on airplanes for some reason."
      But history repeats itself. At the end of the war, the Germans put a man in the Bachem Nutter interceptor for some reason. In fact, a disposable anti-aircraft missile, first guided by an autopilot and finally by a human. Now it is "wild".

        The Germans had a project - A-9 / A-10, to attack US cities. In general, a large FAA. Since it was unrealistic to get at such a distance, the plans were to put a man there. A sabotage group installed a beacon, the pilot in the final section took aim and jumped with a parachute. Then he had to pick up a submarine. Things didn’t reach the implementation, they didn’t have time ... From the point of view of today's times - the game is utter.

    Su-57E does not yet exist in iron and its exact performance characteristics are not defined. This is not a constant, because the parameters and capabilities will vary depending on the customer's specifications and the terms of the export contracts.

    But about autonomy and automatic mode - this is all close to the truth. And this is one of the necessities for effective work with the Hunter and its future iterations. The pilot will have to choose the most convenient of the ready-made behavior solutions in real time. Today the only realistic scenario for "live" control of a UAV from an airplane. No second joysticks and navigators on the Su-30, no matter how some may say here.

      At the same time, at the beginning of the entry into the hunter's troops, the combat characteristics of the SU-57 will be significantly expanded.

The effect is the same as the first time Su-27 entered the database. He won against all Westerners in everything and for a clear advantage, only the Dinosaur outperformed, and the development of avionics in Rafal and Typhoon

              Stealth is not forever, but until the next breakthrough in detection tools.
              For example, can you tell something intelligible about the capabilities of the radio-photon locator (as I understand it, the name has not yet settled down)?
              I think that no one can either, and not because it is secret, but because it is not clear until the first experimental data have been obtained that reveal the prospects of the method.
              In the meantime, none of this exists.

      You can understand, and agree, too, but in close combat, if there are more than one enemy aircraft, the fears will somehow increase that there may not be enough time for the pilot to choose a victorious algorithm of behavior (choosing the best solution from a subset of acceptable and recommended ) ...

    I am always confused by the large amount of electronics in military technology. Yes, its presence helps to solve many problems, intermediate comprehension of which would take time, but ... how vulnerable are all these AI, ICS, etc. After all, it is not for nothing that they say that for every poison, you can find an antidote. I wonder if today there are electronic warfare means capable of making an "artificial Deb and la" out of an "artificial clever man" on the same fifth-generation aircraft (and not only ours from the Russian Federation)?

        I think AI will have enough brains to tune to other frequencies in case of suppression. For example, the communications and GLONASS are pressed down in the band up to 2500 MHz, and the AI ​​chick is tuned up, the processor is inertial for a while, the processor is noisy, and the AI ​​chic has switched to the backup well or even hide it in the RF paths in metal along with all the circuits and what will they do?

    It is also interesting that China does not intend to sell its J-20s until the appearance of a "good engine", and, despite the announced Xian WS-15, they again expect a "good engine" from Russia.
    And then there are the Iranians, who suddenly announced that the Chinese is better and cheaper, by as much as 13% ... You can see a marketing move, before starting negotiations with Russia, on the possible purchase of the SU-57E. Everyone is cunning, everyone is used to the idea that Russia is "not greedy."

    It’s great that IMS has already worked on the aircraft. But as the author correctly observes, these systems are in demand everywhere today! And in the industrial and financial sectors and in general in the economy.
