"For flights in the Arctic": MIG-31BM received a new navigation system

26

Russian MiG-31BM, serving in the Arctic, received a new navigation system for use in the Arctic. This was reported by the press service of Rostec.


According to the report, the aircraft is being equipped with the latest satellite navigation system, which allows them to carry out combat training missions in Arctic conditions; details of the system's operation are not provided.

In the course of work, a new satellite navigation system is being installed on the MiG-31BM. It allows you to solve the problems of aircraft navigation anywhere in the world, including the Arctic region.

- leads TASS message of the UAC press service.

Note that a few years ago, it was reported about plans to equip the MiG-31 with a strapdown inertial navigation system (SINS), which allows the fighter to navigate in the Arctic without correction from GPS and GLONASS satellites. SINS was specially designed for use in low temperatures, high radiation background, lack of satellite signals and communication with terrestrial services. The system provides fully autonomous high-precision navigation.

Recall that the MiG-31BM interceptors currently cover the Russian North, they are deployed on the Novaya Zemlya archipelago and in Chukotka. The capabilities of this aircraft allow it to intercept targets at high altitude and range.

    It's good that we are slowly moving away from gps, although Glonass is not completely Russian, the software is ours there, and the elementary base is not quite, because we are strained with our processors.

      With your processors, you are simply strained.

        vik669-wake up to your wife in bed! Our heads of defense enterprises obscenely shout that many products come out with lower characteristics, because of the outdated elementary base, recently they honestly stated that there would be problems with Glonass due to the inability to buy the necessary processors, you are the only one who knows in the country! !!

    So there are problems, that's just not worth throwing at them. They cannot be solved at once. We must start from the very beginning !!!

    Well now hold on to the enemy spies.! You won't be able to rob just like that in the Arctic .. They were able to create unique machines in the USSR! The territory of the Arctic is huge and only such fighters will be able to control it visually.

    I was always interested in what direction the compass needle shows at the North Pole, or how to look from it, for example, to the east. request

        Let's assume that the geographic north pole coincides with the true magnetic pole. AND? Just do not have to answer that the arrow will show where to go to the author of stupid questions. laughing

          So everyone knows that at the North Pole there is only one direction - to the south, there are no others.

      At the North Pole, the compass needle points only to the South.
      The control method "along a given course" (control signal - deviation from a given course) is not optimal and basic.
      The main source of navigation data information is the inertial navigation system (INS). ANN provides navigation information continuously.
      The optimal and basic method is the "orthodromy" control method, the control signal is a deviation from the line of a given path.
      To implement the method and correct coordinates from the INS, an external high-precision aircraft position sensor is also required. It can be: ground-based radio system for long-distance navigation (RSDN), astronavigation system, correlation-extreme navigation system, satellite navigation system.

    At the geographic North Pole, the magnetic needle will point to the magnetic South Pole (somewhere in the direction of Canada). And wherever you look everywhere the direction to the South, there is no east direction!
    And about BIMS, they probably did everything right, but how much, it cannot be said, it would be better not to mention it!

      magnetic South Pole (somewhere in the side of Canada)

      I'll clarify: somewhere in the Toronto area laughing

      Strange, but I have always believed that the south magnetic pole is in Antarctica! Or am I missing something?

        The magnetic pole is generally not tied to the point of geography and can easily walk - either insignificantly, which happens constantly, or strongly, and then the end of the world is on the surface.

    SINS was specially designed for use in low temperatures, high radiation background, lack of satellite signals and communication with terrestrial services. The system provides fully autonomous high-precision navigation.
    So we will write down: suitable for work in a nuclear winter. yes

    Well, it makes sense that the Arctic needs more than just GNSS. There are fewer GLONASS satellites in the sky, the farther from the equator to the north or south, the less satellites are in the sky. The inertial system is quite a suitable and reliable solution.
