“The fighter is becoming obsolete”: in India they decided to carry out the re-equipment of the Su-30


In India, they announced a developed program for the re-equipment of the Su-30 fighter. The Indian state-owned company HAL (Hindustan Aeronautics Limited) decided to carry out the re-equipment.


Indian media have reported that HAL plans to equip a Russian-designed fighter with a new cockpit with artificial intelligence. The materials referring to representatives of the state company indicate that the project started in November last year.

From the statement:

The digitalized cockpit should replace the analog cockpit of a Russian fighter. We are shifting the focus to the use of artificial intelligence, digital LCD screens. We intend to move away from analog sensors and switches on the panel.

It is noted that the artificial intelligence system developed in India is able to carry out commands and choose the best options when making decisions.

Project Engineer:

Pressing the button with the thumb of your left hand activates the VACS voice control system. This is a device weighing 2,7 kg, which with the help of artificial intelligence allows you to recognize the voice commands of crew members. For example, if the command “height and position” is given, the system will determine everything independently and inform the pilot of the necessary data. The system also allows voice selection. weapons.

It is stated that at the moment VACS allows speech recognition by 98%.

“But we intend to make it so that recognition is 100% complete,” the project engineer added.

The Indian media recall the statement of the retired Marshal aviation India Daljit Singh, who declared "obsolescence and reduced combat efficiency of Su-30MKI fighters."

    Mat in the list of kamand not included? And then, even before hypersonic fighter can disperse! Or, the plane interprets the command incorrectly, starts dancing in flight, the pilot with tea - forcibly - get drunk! !! belay

      Digitalization is certainly good, but just replacing fully analog devices is not a visionary move. As far as I know, we have it all duplicated. And in case of an unexpected failure of the electronics, or system glitches, analog devices will be needed.
      And as for voice commands, in my time it will take a lot more than to see on the devices and take action .. And it happens that a person has such a thing that they forget the word, I’m not talking about overloads. Here is a "joke" that will be ..

        I also thought about overloads. Speak up and that may change. Does AI recognize the “new” host?

          Yes, and touch control in an airplane? And how in case of vibration to get to the desired panel segment or point? Should I completely go away from the mechanics in the cab?

          I don’t think that the system will be tuned to the timbre of the voice of a particular pilot, because they can change ... For example: voice assistants Siri, Alice, Google - it doesn’t matter who asks a question to your iPhone or smartphone, the main thing is an understandable question or command.

            Not a good example. Compare toys created by and large for entertainment, with combat systems, as it is not quite right. What works beautifully in science fiction films is sometimes not really applicable in reality. And the craze for digitalization will not bring to good. Americans have been year after year, the software environment for their F-35, can not bring to mind. I’m silent about the Boeing, with the latest disasters. And the Indians simply PR, when they themselves still have the MIG-21 in service. So it’s beautiful to sketch, no one bothers. Let them dance on.

              A normal example. I do not compare toys with combat systems, but the principle of operation. And no one in their right mind will tune AI to the timbre of the voice of a certain person - sometimes they kill in a war. And how then to be - to reconfigure the equipment or look for a person with a similar timbre of voice? And, as already mentioned above, during overloads and for the pilot, the voice changes, so the setting should be on the team, not the voice ...

            It depends on what overload. A familiar pilot said, it happened that you don’t understand - you rattle felts, you hoarse felts.

        The Su-35 has no analogue display indicators, no one complains. Duplication is purely due to two monitors.

          It’s not for display meters, but for touch and voice control. Reading readings and introducing commands are like two big differences.

        Do not say, in voice there is an opportunity, without being distracted from the main action, to make additional ones. For example, take aim and make weapons at the same time, or work on the ground, aim, and with your voice control altitude and speed, without looking

        “Dry, of course, is an excellent and powerful platform. In terms of combat load and flight range, it is of high value, but the reality is that the program was originally launched in 1997, and since then there have been numerous technological advances that require aircraft updates "..
        The tasks are clear, what's stopping you?
        Radar with AFAR, there is a radio-electronic suppression station SAP-518SM for Su-30SM.

    It is very interesting to know how speech recognition will occur during congestion. In principle, the re-equipment is logical, the aircraft has been developed for a long time and has been in operation for a long time, a lot has changed in the information field during this time, and the new generation of pilots is more likely to work with digital indicators ...

    We thought carefully before starting to distort what works!
    Someone has a special trust in their ... developers, modernizers?

    A little more, a little more Indian intelligence and there will be speech recognition like in the cheapest smartphone.

    Do they have permission from the design bureau to make changes to the serial design? Or they’ll “design” them so that they begin to fight, but “The Russian plane has lost its unreliability”

    The question is not that they will break the car with their crooked handles, but that it is outdated and more than them (and not only Indians) are not satisfied.
    That's what you need to talk about

    with the command "Jimi, Jimi" the fighter is gaining altitude .. and as soon as the pilot makes the sound of "hacha hacha" the fighter starts an attack with all airborne weapons. artificial Indian intelligence, implies when attacking an enemy fighter to go into a deep corkscrew with dances, and songs.
    -to lead the opponents into a stupor, and confusion! Well, I'll write about this later!)

    Nothing will come of them. To do this, you need to develop a new computer and assemble the aircraft “anew” around it. As ours did in the Su-35, with digital control of all systems. The cost of such a "remake" will be almost like the new Su-30mki.

    It's one thing when the "system" simply reports the current data on the devices, there are no problems. The output from this system goes only to the pilots' phones.
    And a completely different question is if this “system” is connected to the control of the aircraft through voice commands. Here it’s an order of magnitude more complicated.
    It’s logical to test innovations limited to the first option.
