In Ukraine, tests of the BTR-4E with a system of "transparent" armor began

The Armed Forces of Ukraine began testing the so-called "transparent armor". A sample Land Platform Modernization Kit (LPMK) system is installed on the BTR-4E armored personnel carrier. This was announced by the head of the Ukrainian private company Limpid Armor Inc., which developed the system, Mikhail Grechikhin.


At the Yavorov training ground in the Lviv region of Ukraine, tests began on a sample of the Land Platform Modernization Kit (LPMK) system of the so-called "transparent" armor on the BTR-4E armored personnel carrier. This system consists of eight cameras with night channels installed around the perimeter of an armored personnel carrier, a server, monitors, and helmet-mounted headsets based on Microsoft HoloLens commercial smart glasses. The image from the cameras is transmitted to monitors and glasses, allowing the crew to "see" the situation around the car from all sides, as if the BTR body was missing.

The company introduced the concept of so-called transparent armor. It allows the crew to access improved situational awareness. Depending on the rotation of the head (helmet), the military sees the area they need. Time to update information to 2 milliseconds. The company also introduced the 14 recognition function for typical targets, which was very lacking. And further
from the most important: the system can be applied at night

- reported in the scientific center of the Ground Forces of the Armed Forces.

The development company said that the LPMK system can be installed on any type of armored vehicles. Tests of the BTR-4Е with the LPMK system are planned to be completed by the end of the 2020 year.

The bmpd blog, for its part, notes that similar systems of the so-called "transparent" armor have been developed in various countries for some time, but not a single system has been brought up to serial status.

    Do you see the armor? No. But she is ...
    It is worth noting that the Ukrainian company Limpid Armor Inc. (office in Kiev) is part of the NATO working group on scientific research and technology, whose tasks include the development of augmented reality standards for military personnel and platforms (using in combat conditions).

        The main thing is that they would not shoot each other inside the car.
        Outside then they see, but inside not a damn thing.
        With a fright, he will start shooting, thinking that he (a Ukrainian fighter) is on the battlefield and will shatter his neighbors.

              In perspective. the system is very good. Someone who rode in armored vehicles will appreciate it. It's just that it (the system) will be expensive and capricious. It's no secret that silence is rare on the battlefield. Yes, and weather conditions will greatly interfere with optics. yes

      Well done, joked, take a pie from the shelf.
      The creature could not in the article of two paragraphs ... Where is it written there presented?
      I understand that for some individuals, all news from / from Ukraine causes an acute attack of Petrosianism, but better keep yourself in your hands and keep your hands away from the keyboard.
      Threat. In Ukraine, in addition to the erupted scammers, there are a lot of adequate people who work, including in the defense industry, and naturally they are trying to introduce new technologies, and what's so funny?

        Limpid Armor Inc. has developed the ORIGINAL PROGRAM, which provides the "bonding" of streaming video. Thanks to eight cameras installed around the perimeter of the hull, the crew receives a panoramic view. The system can display to each crew member the indicators necessary for his functions: for someone, the speed of movement and fuel supply, and for someone - an aiming complex and a supply of shells for the gun. The company has implemented the recognition function of 14 typical targets, as well as one of the important points the system can be used at night

    Not a single country was able to bring to the series, and the Ukrainian private company was able to launch in the series in 2020. So who and what to believe? According to Ukrainian reports, they are ahead of the rest. Something is hard to believe ...

            And did not enter. They just thought and then everything collapsed in a relationship
            The initiators of the creation of the CIS were Russia, Belarus and Ukraine. But Ukraine did not ratify this treaty and was in observer status and then completely refused due to its Euroopeidity and orientation to the West

    What nonsense. This is called fpv. I’ve been flying a quadric in glasses with a gyro for about five years. Using 6 cameras and creating a virial ball of the image is just a software task that can be solved even in action cameras.

    I was glad for the neighbors. However, serious doubts arise about the applicability of this system in real combat. Something nearby explodes, the weather is disgusting, the bastards the opponents also turned on the electronic warfare. So, this system is priceless for playing war games with a computer.

      Well, let's say all-round cameras are there, is there an option with a helmet is another question.
      ps for me, you don’t need any helmet, remove the capsule with the crew and put the capsule with the computer or shove Fedor.

          And what is the usefulness of this helmet on the battlefield? The human eye is an insidious thing - it can also let an action movie with an RPG flicker in the window, and you need to twirl the Bosko. It will be much more effective if you follow the environment and direct the dub to danger will be a computer program.

            Firstly, you still create the program that will satisfy the requirements.
            And secondly, there is still an ethical aspect. Are you sure you are ready to entrust a computer program to kill a person?
            Usefulness of a helmet? in that it increases this very "situational awareness". It's one thing to watch what is happening outside through a triplex, another through a monitor screen, a completely different thing through an augmented reality system on a helmet. firstly, it is easier to protect a helmet from damage than a bunch of monitors, and secondly, sitting in a helmet and turning your head, you understand much better in which direction you are looking.

              They already exist for a long time, were tested on old computers.
              Yes, I’m ready, technology has long allowed and only the notorious ethics forbids sending robots to fight. But breaking the psyche of people does not prohibit anything.
              If we talk about usefulness, then it is worth mentioning the disadvantages, right? "Problems with focusing vision, partial obstruction of the central field of view, overload of peripheral vision, which is responsible for the entire spectrum of information about the relative speed of movement of objects and distance to them, too long a" distraction "to synthesized added pictures - all this is obviously negative and can be dangerous for a person. " All these are not my unfounded words, I took it from the site of JSC TsNTU "Dinamika".
              So, returning to my early words, why should this helmet for tankers if they can be removed from it and replaced with a robot, and the operator will sit in this cool helmet or a bunker with dozens of monitors?

                They already exist for a long time, were tested on old computers.

                Not true, old computers and then existing mathematical models could not reliably recognize and classify targets in automatic mode. By the way, not the fact that modern ones can.
                and only the notorious ethics forbids sending robots to fight

                Not true. If only ethics forbade robots would fight for a long time.
                All these are not my unfounded words, I took it from the website of TsNTU "Dynamics" JSC.

                They relate to what? To konretnoy implementation or to the idea in general in isolation from the level of technology? What if one succeeds in creating a setreartine not inferior in reality to the geometric parameters? And this, by the way, is only a matter of time.
                So, returning to my early words, why should this helmet for tankers if they can be removed from it and replaced with a robot, and the operator will sit in this cool helmet or a bunker with dozens of monitors?

                Great idea. And in it you do not see any flaws? What is your weak link in it?

    At UKRALIN not to introduce the main thing, but to show and ask for money for innovations .. And there, as usual, sawing-sharing and other subtleties of modern life .. So the "transparent" armor will be "ghostly" until the Ukrainian "craftsmen" build a pair skyscrapers in the Big Apple and do not buy a dozen yachts (islands) near Cyprus or the Cayman ..
