The dates of deliveries of the A-100 Premier AWACS aircraft to the Russian Air Force

Information was published on the upcoming delivery to the Russian Aerospace Forces of a promising AWACS aircraft (long-range radar detection). We are talking about the aircraft A-100 "Premier", which is attributed to a new generation of funds aviation in its class.


As with reference to own sources сообщает RIA News, tests of the A-100 Premier AWACS aircraft continue on schedule. Moreover, the delivery to the Russian Aerospace Forces of this means of aviation is scheduled for 2024.

A-100 "Premier" is an aircraft that was created on the basis of a transport aircraft in the version of IL-76MD-90A. Moreover, the aircraft is capable not only of radar monitoring, but also of guidance. To do this, it is equipped with the latest radio equipment. Using the latest radio-technical content, an aircraft can track previously discovered targets by transmitting data about them, for example, to aircraft of a fighter wing involved in an operation.

The length of the aircraft is 46,6 m, height - 14,76 m, cruising speed - about 800 km / h. The crew, according to some reports, 6 people.

About any specific parameters for detecting targets and pointing at them so far, for obvious reasons, not reported.

Today, without this kind of aircraft with modern electronic “stuffing”, it is more difficult to carry out combat missions against a well-equipped enemy. In the arsenal, NATO has its own version of the AWACS aircraft. This is an E-3 Sentry in various versions.

The parameters of its on-board equipment are such that one side is capable of monitoring the territory of an area of ​​about 300 thousand square kilometers. He is also able to detect aviation at a distance of 500-650 km, depending on the height of its flight.

        I'm more tired of the order (even news about the coronovirus from each iron), reports of a shift to the right. That's where the eye is already twitching.

    Re-equipment of the aircraft began in 2014. Until they begin to release, the "filling" and become morally and physically obsolete. 10 years in electronics - a change of generations.

    But Stalin would have said: "Our country needs these airplanes like air!"
    Especially after the loss of our AWACS aircraft in Syria ...
    We need both airplanes and specialists.

          Paul, IL-20, is a radio engineering, not radar reconnaissance aircraft.
          AWACS - early warning radar detection.
          And shot down the IL-20RT (electronic intelligence).
          Furstein?

    When I first heard about this the A-100, I expected to see a DRLOiU aircraft based on some wide or mid-body passenger with AFAR flat antennas. Well, with AFAR it’s clear that we don’t have friendship with her, but why exactly IL-76?

      Superjet has a bunch of imported parts. We do not have mass-produced turboprop aircraft. IL-96 and Tu-214 have the same ps-90 engines. Apparently the plane with the ramp was more convenient for placing the antenna and equipment.

        This aircraft was developed in the 70-80s and on an element base corresponding to that time. Another tube equipment with CRT "tubes". The weight of the equipment without taking into account the weight of the "mushroom" is about 20 tons. Then the choice of the IL-76 was fully justified. But almost half a century has passed since then. A completely different microelectronics, there are no CRTs. But the plane is still the same and the same "mushroom". Why? I'm just wondering. Isn’t it better to use something more designed for a long stay in the air, some long-distance or medium-haul passenger instead? I am silent about AFAR, we have real problems with the creation of such radars.

            promising radar E2G / -2097 MMR –MS-MMR "MAGEN" - a rotating three-dimensional radar with two triangular active phased antenna arrays (AFAR). Development of the Israeli Aviation Industry (IAI)
            The letters MS in the name of the new variant mean Multi-Sensor, i.e. The new system combines a number of sensors (both active and passive), most of which, like EL / M-2084, are manufactured by ELTA, a subsidiary of IAI. The basis of the system is the EL / M-2084 itself (S-frequency radar), another high-frequency radar, IFF (Identification friend or foe), ADS-B (Automatic Dependent Surveillance) sensors are combined with it - Broadcasting), as well as electronic intelligence system (SIGINT), TV and IR cameras (EO / IR) and missile launch recognition sensor (LDS - Launch Detector Sensor).
            This combination helps to create the most complete picture of the air situation (ASP - Air Situational Picture) in order to detect low ESR aircraft, such as stealth aircraft, small UAVs, multicopter, barrage, cruise missiles, heavy artillery missiles, dropped air weapons, ATGMs long range. MS-MMR provides improved classification and identification of targets, recognizes very close targets, including against the background of natural and artificially created interference.
            \ MS-MMR significantly increases the reliability of the created picture of the air situation and can effectively handle new types of small, low, slow and freezing threats with low ESR, as well as guided and unguided missiles at various ranges. Since all sensors are integrated within the same system, MS-MMR provides one output of all data to the control and monitoring system (C2 - Command and Control), which greatly simplifies and accelerates the understanding of the situation.
            MS-MMR is built on a modular basis. Depending on the wishes of the customer, the MS-MMR can be purchased in full, or with a part of additional sensors, or the usual version of MMR will be purchased. A completely passive mode of operation is also possible - radar and IFF are disabled, only passive parts of the system work.
            Appendix: TTX E2G / -2097 MMR –MS-MMR "MAGEN"
            E2G / -2097 MMR –MS-MMR "MAGEN" - S-band radar family (S-band, i.e. wavelength within 7.5-15 cm, frequency from 2 to 4 MHz) with active phased array antenna (AFAR ) It is used for air defense tasks (AD - Air Defense) and for detecting enemy artillery positions (Artillery Weapon Location Radar, WLR). It can be supplied to customers in configurations of various sizes. Air transportable (on aircraft of class S-130 and above).
            Range, AD - 474 km (256 nautical miles);
            Range, WLR - 170 km;
            Azimuth review, AD - 120 degrees (without rotation), 360 degrees (with rotation);
            Azimuth review, WLR - 120 degrees;
            Elevation angle overview - up to 50 degrees (WLR and AD), up to a height of 30.48 km (100,000 feet, AD);
            Accuracy, AD mode - high, in all three coordinates (3D);
            Accuracy, WLR mode - 0.3% CVO (i.e., at a maximum range of 100 km, the error will be 300 meters);
            The number of simultaneously followed targets, AD - 1,100;
            The number of simultaneously monitored goals, WLR - 200 per minute.

            Radar capabilities: E2G / -2097 MMR –MS-MMR "MAGEN"

            In the WLR mode, artillery shells, mines, guided and unguided missiles are detected; the position of enemy artillery or launcher positions is calculated; the artillery fire can be adjusted;

            In AD mode, all types of air targets are detected and recognized; information is quickly updated to track speedy and maneuverable targets; in essence, a real-time picture of the air situation is created; possible control of air defense systems and missile defense systems;

            It can be used for air traffic control according to the standards of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO);

            The radar has a remote control;

            High noise immunity;

            Advanced signal processing techniques;

            High reliability and slow wear.

          As such, there is no problem with AFAR; the S-400 has one of the posts with AFAR. Yes, and the A-100 should also have three AFAR antennas. There seems to be a problem with other electronics and communication systems (there were a lot of imported ones).

            Have you studied the materiel? Where, if not a secret? On Wikipedia? Yes, there is an AFAR. There are a lot of things there. But on the website of Vega itself it is indicated: "phased antenna array" and "unique antenna system." About the active PAR, not a word. So where does the information come from, specialist? By the way, there was only one person on the site who works directly on the A-100 and who is truly a specialist. Unfortunately, he has not written comments here for a couple of years. By the way, I asked him a question, why exactly IL-76. But he is watching from his bell tower. Answer: An An-124 Ruslan would be better suited for me, in the 76th I don’t fit everything I would like ...

          The first in our country AWACS - there was no distant radar detection and control. We had AK RLDN - an aviation complex for early radar detection and guidance. The creation and testing of such a complex is a very difficult technical task. The tests of the A-50 went on for more than 10 years and ended with its adoption for trial operation in the army. Only after several years of trial operation, it was adopted. The difference between AK RDN and AWACS can be seen from the name. In AWACS, the guidance task is accomplished by issuing target designation to a fighter. Actually, the guidance problem is solved in the fighter's digital computer. In AK RLDN, the guidance task for each type of fighter is solved on board the complex. The crew consisted of 3 guidance navigators and + calculation commander - navigator. Thus, there was the possibility of pointing at an intercept and withdrawal to a ground target of an aircraft without a computer.
          The second change of the airframe generates a large number of tasks already solved on previous machines. In the manufacture of the first A-50s in Tashkent, military representatives refused to accept its stuffing - the electronic complex itself. Therefore, all the planes passed through me. Each side had its own specificity for false marks. And this is with the same form of a glider.
          Of course, there are questions to the IL-76 regarding shading of the tail of a wide viewing sector in the rear hemisphere. However, they learned to deal with this phenomenon and did not begin to change the carrier.

            I remember a few years ago there was a whole series of articles that Vega had serious problems with the development of the Prime Minister, right up to the collapse of the entire project. Then everything seemed to quiet down.
            Regarding the IL-76, it is clear that we have already gone on a proven road. But for the sake of objectivity, in your opinion, which of the mass-produced cars would be preferable to us as a platform in the aggregate xk?

            could, but ... IL-96 was literally "eaten up" by American businessmen and local officials who were not interested in the development of the domestic aviation industry. In 2009, Minister of Industry and Trade Viktor Khristenko decided to discontinue the IL-96-300 passenger aircraft, "since the airliner is not able to compete with the latest Boeing and Airbus long-range passenger aircraft"
            As a result, the Voronezh Aviation Plant produced only 29 such aircraft. Most of them are operated in the "presidential" squadron.
            In 2015, they announced the resumption of production, but leapfrog with motors began. In general, things are still there (although in 2017 it was announced that a contract was signed between the S.V. Ilyushin Aviation Complex and the UAC for conducting an OKR to create the modernized IL-96-400M with the first flight in 2019.

            When creating the A-100 as a carrier (for lack of others), only two options were considered: the Ruslan An-124 and Il-76

        We and IL-76 have recently moved from Chkalovsky from Tashkent and the pace of construction is not too fast. And the needs are high. And in the BTA and in the version of IL-78. One would think about the Tu-204, IL-96, and now the MS-21.
        And one moment. A-100, this is a large and extremely expensive car, in any case they will not be built many. What is needed is also some more compact and cheap version of AWACS on some kind of short-range aircraft as a base.

            And by the way, it is a pity that they pushed into the box. Looking at the Tu-214R, we can assume that the AWACS at its base would look nice.

          The MC-21 has a composite wing. And there are still problems with him. The problems are solved, of course, but in fact from the production vehicles only IL-76 is.

            He, too, is not yet serial ..... as they launch into the series, I think they will make an anti-sanction glider and begin to sculpt special flanges. This is the only way out. Building a separate plane is wrong. B-737 as an example .... and civilian ramparts and Poseidon and AWAC machines (and from different manufacturers)

            The MS-21 has a composite wing, and there are still problems with it.

            =========
            Sergei! The problem is different! Composites as power structural elements for military aircraft - simply NOT ACCEPTABLE! They are more fragile compared to light alloys! For example: a large fragment or a small-caliber projectile, when hit in a wing box made of light alloys, will simply punch a hole in it, but a composite box will simply DESTROY under load!
            Composites can be used to produce hatches, chassis and bomb doors, cargo compartment doors, trim elements (i.e., that does not work under load), but only NOT POWER STRUCTURES of the structure!
            Those. MS-21 for the military - NOT SUITABLE - it is only for civilian purposes! hi

              I do not agree ..... this is not a military aircraft. The range of the AFAR allows it to be outside the zone of shelling. And the survivability of the B737 with the iron wing and composite is the same. They wrote about composites that they are less repairable .. you need to change the whole part.

              We need modern AWACS yesterday, to rely on the MS-21, which for civilian purposes does not yet exist. An attempt to create a composite combat aircraft has already been - this is a Su-47 with reverse sweep ("Golden Eagle"). As the design bureau saved money and did everything without TsAGI, the result was predictable - terrible buffeting on a number of modes.

              AK RLDN requires a metal wing to shield the reflected signals from the ground. Look at the photo of the A-50. He has under his "mushroom" small "wings" for this purpose added, which are not on serial IL 76.

          IL-76 can land on a dirt airfield, in military conditions for maneuver, refueling, emergency landing with subsequent take-off. This is a very winning option in front of the same E-3A based on the Boeing 707.
          But there were reports that there was a desire to make an AWACS aircraft based on the Tu-214 - up to 50 pieces and just with a two-sided flat AFAR on the back.
          But with the A-100, really some kind of crap is happening. And not only with him, but also with the modernization of the drill A-50s - as of 2015, 4 more were modernized. so nothing more is heard. But they are (drill) under 25 pcs. and upgrade them much easier and faster than building new ones, but ... apparently "insurmountable circumstances" do not allow. Or someone’s evil will.

            This is not just a winning option, but a mandatory option for a military aircraft. And one of the reasons, I think, that they did not do at the bases of Tu and other civilian aircraft. In the USSR, all civilian aircraft that could be launched could land and take off from unpaved airfields, as they were a strategic reserve of the USSR Air Force Air Force.

              Looking with whom to equal. If with the A-50, then the range will be noticeably greater - thanks to more efficient engines and a lower weight of the equipment (you can increase the fuel supply, which is most likely to be realized.
              If with E-3A, then you also need to look at the engines (the planes are quite old) ... well, and refueling in the air.

      When I first heard about this the A-100, I expected to see a DRLOiU aircraft based on some wide or mid-body passenger with AFAR flat antennas. Well, with AFAR it’s clear that we don’t have friendship with her

      =========
      Yah! Just "friendship doesn’t work out"? And then what kind of flat panels (on the sides) behind the cockpit on the Tu-214R?

      This is exactly AFAR!
      The problem is that the signature of such a system resembles a "figure eight laid on its side" (that is, it looks well on the sides, and "dead zones" form in the front and rear hemispheres! Well, the front hemisphere can be covered with a nose radar (then the signature will resemble a “shamrock”), and the back - alas! And the signature of a rotating “plate” is the right circle!
      That's why AFAR flat panels are better suited for reconnaissance aircraft, and "plates" - for AWACS!

        The rear hemisphere closes with the fourth AFAR, as on the E-737 and the like.
        I did not say that we cannot do AFAR. It’s difficult for us to go to combat vehicles. Do you know a lot of equipment with AFAR that is in service with us? What in aviation, what in the Navy. This 214th is rather a pleasant exception. Everything else is more at exhibitions.
        And by the way, if for good, instead of two Tu-214R and A-100 there should be one machine that combines all their potential.

            AWACS - long-range radar detection. Air, surface, and in the A-100 and ground targets. And why Tu-214R hung with these canvases AFAR? It is only inferior in the detection range of aerial targets, and it also has an optical-thermal imaging station, which, as it were, does not need to.

Although the PS90 and avionics for the IL476 are mass-produced and will be produced ..... the same units can be set at 96-400. And besides AWACS, you can make a strat. Scout.

                Why all these difficulties? Do we have many military airfields capable of receiving IL-96?
                And the IL-76 will sit on any of the available ones, even on a dirt one.
                AND PRICE! Compare the prices of IL-76 and IL-96.
                + cost of maintenance, life cycle.
                If you really want to get a military special-purpose aircraft on the basis of a civilian, here you have the Tu-214 - on its base, both the RTR aircraft, and the anti-submarine, and the repeater, and AWACS are planning. About two engines, sufficient capacity and range (especially if refueling in the air is organized.
                Serial.

                    I’m only afraid that the General Staff will not agree with you. Too big for such a task.
                    If you look at his American counterpart, we see that it was created on the basis of a Boeing 707 (our analogue is IL-62). And this is on the element base of the 70s - 80s. Now the hardware is noticeably lighter and more compact, in the modernized A-50, about 2 times, the vacated space and mass were used to increase the fuel supply. Therefore, they want to order about 50 Tu-214 as DRLOs, although it is not yet known exactly whether there are a mushroom or a crest (flat, double-sided AFAR), there are different rumors ... But you immediately waved IL-96-400, it’s also useful load of 80 tons, what are you going to shove there? And the airfield for such an aircraft is needed not anyhow. And the Tu-214 has the same engines as the Il-96-400, but only TWO, so it will eat up 2 times less fuel per departure, it’s easier to refuel ...
                    By the way, their engines are not quite the same, different modifications, in draft - very different - 14,5 tons for the IL-76MD90A, versus 17,5 tons for the IL-96-400.
                    In addition, IL-96 will be able to produce only 2 pcs. per year in SERIAL production - these are the capacities of the Voronezh NEA, and will primarily go for the rearmament of the presidential air squad and in the Moscow Region as special airborne (command posts).
