New compact satellite communication station ready for delivery to the troops

By the end of the year, the Russian Ministry of Defense will receive the latest compact satellite communication stations R-444-NM. This was reported by the press service of the Ruselectronics holding (part of Rostec).


According to the report, state tests of the new small-sized satellite communication station R-444-NM have been completed, and by the end of this year the station should be accepted for supply by the Russian Armed Forces. The new equipment makes it possible to organize a mobile communications network for special and civil purposes far from the telecommunications infrastructure. The complex can transmit speech, digital and text messages. Station deployment takes less than one minute.

The portable satellite communication station R-444-NM has weight and size characteristics one and a half times less in comparison with existing analogues due to the use of a phased antenna array. State tests of the new station have now been completed, the acceptance of equipment for supply is expected by the end of 2020

- Said the press service.

The R-44-NM satellite communication station was developed primarily for the Russian army, but can be used in other structures.

The station works with spacecraft in geostationary orbit and creates a mobile communications network on the ground for 255 users with a data transfer rate of up to 64 kbit / s

- said in "Ruselectronics".

The weight of the kit does not exceed 7,5 kg. The station includes a control panel built into the handset, a compact flat monoblock, including an antenna module and a modem. The battery provides the station operation in duplex mode for 4 hours.

    In my time, a satellite communication system was mounted on a Ural car. And now .........

        Aga EU 1036 one processor 100 sq.m. And working capacity is just a "dream".

        I remember RATAN-600 (the radio astronomy telescope of the Academy of Sciences) was controlled by such an apparatus called Elektronika 1111. So it was two full-weight three-door cabinets in size, and Kamaz might not be enough in weight

          But when you establish a connection on her, what a satisfaction! They actually worked, wiping the sweat from the forehead. At 88 in Mongolia from the Sain Shanda area, they swung as much as 47 km! At 405k! The divisional communications chief, to celebrate, rolled out a bubble of cognac ...

        Everything is there! Until the resource is depleted, there will be no replacement

      laughing It is good that at that time, the Urals were enough for the transportation of dry mixes. Now they are also playing and not only in the Urals. Which are a thousand times more powerful than the R-444-NM. But even in a backpack, such a CCC will not fit.

      Museum exhibit. Beauty.

        Have you seen the sea-based Volna-S? They didn't put it on any steamer, dimensions, you know ...

    And what I liked was that, in fact, everything was ready for delivery, and not, as usual, the development of a project and so on.

    So SIM cards will probably be needed for phones. And to pay someone, commissars or battalion commander.

    64KB / s is not weak, not so long ago (although a long time ago ...) one of my first sales was an external modem for 2800B / s, it cost about 200 American money then, but here a backpack with a connection working on half of the ball got lost , it became boring - you can upload not only pictures, but also videos ... :-)

    Finally, the phased array reached the military signalmen. Interestingly, the PAR itself is able to find and orient itself to the satellite or does it still need to be turned manually every time?

    Russian Ministry of Defense by the end of the year will get into service the newest compact stations of satellite communication R-444-NM. This was reported by the press service of the Ruselectronics holding (part of Rostec).
    ....
    by the end of this year station must be accepted for supply Armed forces of Russia.

    Whether the information was presented incorrectly, or something is wrong here - to adopt and accept for supply are two big differences, the author of the message apparently does not know this. So we will wait for the end of the year to understand at least the level of its application in the troops.

    7,5 kg. - this is good, but duplex, i.e., you need to work with a microphone, but what about encryption? And can the battery be charged from anything, such as a car radiator?
