Remote mine clearance machine "Foliage" will receive a new microwave gun

The Foliage remote demining vehicle (MDR), created for the Strategic Missile Forces, will receive a more powerful microwave cannon. This was reported by the press service of Rostec.


According to the report, during the modernization, the vehicle should receive a new microwave installation with increased pulse power, which will significantly increase the range of destruction of explosive devices. In addition, "Foliage" will receive new control and lighting systems.

There are plans to modernize the microwave installation with an increase in pulse power by at least five megawatts.

- said in a statement.

The "Foliage" remote mine clearance vehicle was developed by the Krasnodar Instrument Plant "Kaskad" specially for the Strategic Missile Forces. It is equipped with a system based on electromagnetic and inductive means capable of finding and eliminating explosive devices at a distance of up to 100 meters.

The MDR microwave cannon is used to destroy mines and explosive devices equipped with electronics. The radiation "burns" the electronic insides of the explosive device. Pressure mines are cleared or destroyed by sappers who are part of the crew. To neutralize artisanal explosive devices made using mobile phones, etc. Foliage uses radio signals at frequencies typical of civilian electronics.

The MDR tests were completed in 2018, and at the same time the serial production of "Listvy" was launched.

    It will burn electronics, but how will it burn ordinary pressure mines?

      how will it burn conventional pressure mines?

      No, but to counter the microwave, they will install an irradiation sensor and protection as soon as they receive the installation parameters

        It is not very difficult to simply shield from microwave frequencies.

    I'm more interested in, but can such a strong impulse be detected from the satellite?
    I mean, does it unmask a mobile PU for spacecraft?

      pressure mines are unlikely to see before they are triggered - sappers are going inside ... I think you can detect, of course, the radiation is not childish ... although there are so many radio emissions and other unmasking signs on the way of the column that I think these are trifles ... but directly at its position include, so I think it does not unmask ..

      They will not be detected, even with a power of five megawatts. The wavelength is too short, it is very well delayed and scattered by trees, shrubs, especially in summer. Well, with such a power, it will act for 200 meters, the main thing is not to get a person or other living creature into the affected area, it will fry .. smile

    precisely with the help of mobile phones ??? lol , it can be seen that these very mobile ones will be banned soon ..., because they are made with the help of them, those handicraft IEDs laughing
    The radiation "burns" the electronic insides of an explosive device
    exactly!? burns under the ground ???
    Pressure mines are cleared or destroyed by sappers who are part of the crew.
    closer to the reality of our day winked but not all IEDs are mines, and not every mine is a makeshift IED, with a mobile phone (or repeat ) !!! hi

      Well, if the electronics of the mine senses the technique passing over it, then it will also feel the microwave pulse. smile
      In addition, in addition to mines placed under the ground, there is a cloud of other systems that are placed on the surface and even above the surface.

      AND HOW MUCH there is that soil? You don't think that mines are buried 100 or 200 meters? Well, 10 -20 centimeters is too weak protection against a powerful microwave pulse!

        and if undermining on the "mechanics" !? An ordinary mechanical timer with two contacts and a lithium (alkaline, metal-hydride) battery, it doesn't really care about pulses, IEDs are not only electronic and remote-controlled, many different and ingenious designs were invented by a hungry and gloomy human genius ... wink

        why bury mines in the ground at all and on the road, if there are just such machines will pass !?, engineering ammunition 30 meters away on a tree trunk (with warheads like: with a matrix of shock cores), and disguised with leaves and needles :)) ) and observation from the air ... and sappers sailed with a microwave cannon, or rather, they perished right on the road ... No.

      Alas! Only EXTERNAL! You will not argue that the "Boomerang" or the BTR-82 or the BTR-90 somehow suspiciously resemble BTR-60 ?! wink

        There is no "Boomerang", but the BTR-82 is nothing more than a modified vehicle of the BTR-60 / BTR-70 line
        mostly with a different weapon module. BTR-90, in principle, too, but with a change in the position of the engine assembly

          Well, then, be so kind: name at least 10 GENERAL signs! (except for a 4-axle scheme with 2 front rotary pairs, a rear power plant and a landing "in the middle"!
          Such schemes - about half a dozen can be named .... As well as a 2-axle, bonnet arrangement, similar to the KamAZ-43269 "Shot"!
          Yes, I can find you as much as I want, but only too lazy to climb the Internet.

    He has a strong microwave, you will not say anything.
    Everything else controlled by radio channels is stifled by interference, although there is no need for this from such a microwave pulse power. all conductors on boards and transitions in crystals will die.
    Push - any strangled by dogs and people. So the car is normal.

      The BRDM-2 is equipped with a hydraulic booster, the steering wheel turns effortlessly. But there was a case, they flew in between the trees so that the front wheels "came together in a heap", the hydraulic booster "grunted" - that's when yes, it's problematic. laughing But it's okay, about an hour of fuss - and off you go! drinks It was a good machine.

      I'm sure there is probably still a worm gear for steering and without a hydraulic power steering, as in the ZIL-157. laughing I'm kidding, of course, well, I think so, they were probably honored, after all, it's the 21st century .. smile

      As for the BRDM-2 - I will not say anything ... I don't know, I didn't go ...
      But here is the BTR-152 on fees in front of the Army (they were no longer in the troops then - they were written off) - once they had to lead ... belay recourse
      What can I tell you .... It was a "song" !!! This "sad story" deserves a separate "opus" (in a comic style) ... I still cannot forget, although almost 40 years have passed!
      PS But, after the mentioned "driving course", I remained (and to this day I am firmly convinced) that AFTER THIS I can drive absolutely EVERYTHING that moves and has a motor and wheels!

        You shouldn't be like that. "Shot" is highly praised by both drivers and soldiers. A comfortable and well-protected car. And "Bulat" is a derivative of it, with additional protection (shielding from radiation).

    Do we have a lot of extra personnel in the Strategic Missile Forces? It is high time to make such machines with a remote control, and not with a remote bracket. The 21st century has come long ago, but someone did not notice it.
