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.
