Russia will develop microwave radars for unmanned helicopters

In Russia, the development of microwave radars for unmanned and small-sized helicopters has begun, the corresponding agreement was signed by the Helicopter Center and the Ruselectronics holding. This was reported by the press service of Rostec.


The Salyut Research and Production Enterprise, which is part of the holding, will directly develop the new equipment. It is planned that the new equipment will simplify the control of helicopters and will be much cheaper than the optical systems currently installed on combat vehicles. The equipment of the Russian Helicopters holding will be equipped with new radar complexes.

The parties agreed to start long-term cooperation in the field of equipping helicopters with electronic complexes of a new generation

- said in a statement.

Alexander Bushuev, general director of NPP Salyut, said that another reason for the development of new equipment is that existing helicopter radars cannot be installed on small-sized unmanned helicopters due to their large dimensions and weight.

Microwave radiation will make it possible to form a detailed radar image of the external environment even in difficult weather conditions. The system also provides for timely warning of the pilot about threats in poor visibility conditions.

- said the press service of "Rostec".

      ............. no, based on the sawdust boiler! wink

    So all radio locators work in the microwave range. What's the news then. Or the director heard a new word somewhere. I can adjust the emitter on a cheap basis, my microwave has come up.

      The author has forgotten the word magnetron.

      I would write that all parameters are achieved through the use of the microwave millimeter range.

      Hello to you !!! Microwave is centimeter range! It is used mainly at short ranges due to the stronger absorption of short waves in the atmosphere), at medium and long ranges, radars use the decimeter and meter ranges, and over-the-horizon - even more decameter ranges (from 10 to 100 meters)! !!

        So it is so, only these ranges are clogged with radio stations, there it is difficult to catch the desired radio station, And the locator can go blind. The Americans in Yugoslavia caught a microwave oven in 10 kilometers. The British jammed the Germans.

          Yes, NO, Sasha! For this, there is a "noise cancellation" system !!!
          If you want - I will try to explain in a "personal".
          PS I served in RTV myself !!!

        There are transparency windows in the atmosphere in the millimeter range where absorption is acceptable.

      " and will be much cheaper than the optical systems currently installed on combat vehicles"
      That is, we are talking about systems for obtaining radar images

    Microwave radiation will allow the formation detailed radar image external environment even in difficult weather conditions

    In short, ROFAR is bearing fruit, on the basis of its developments everything is tightened)))
    And this is good ...

    What is short range - hundreds of kilometers. is it small? Basically all aircraft radars use a 2-4 cm range.
