Russian Helicopters and RPKB signed a number of agreements on the supply and modernization of onboard equipment for holding helicopters


Helicopter-building holding "Helicopters of Russia" and OAO Ramenskoye Instrument-Making Design Bureau (RPKB) have signed a long-term 7-year contract for the supply of avionics for the helicopter-building enterprises. At the initial stage of cooperation, deliveries of avionics complexes for the Ka-52 "Alligator" attack helicopter and its advanced ship modification - the Ka-52K helicopter for the period from 2013 to 2020 are assumed.

In addition, the companies signed a framework agreement on the modernization of flight-navigation complexes (PNK) for ship-based helicopters Ka-27, Ka-27PS and Ka-29. This correspondent .ARMS-TASS reported in the holding "Helicopters of Russia".

In particular, for these helicopters it is planned to develop the latest digital NCPs, which will implement the "glass cockpit" principle, which allows helicopter pilots to use multifunctional liquid crystal displays instead of analog devices, which greatly simplify piloting and provide much more information.

The concept of creating new NCPs also embraces the principle of open architecture, thanks to which, at the request of the customer, the avionics avionics can easily be supplemented to solve any problems.

The basis for the development of PNK for Ka-27, Ka-27PS, Ka-29, Ka-28М and Ka-31М will be a modernized version of the existing newest complex PNK-37, which today are installed on combat helicopters Ka-52 "Alligator" and Ka- 31.

As emphasized in the holding, cooperation with PKPB has long been established in the framework of annual contracts. The conclusion of a long-term 7-year contract brings the interaction of companies to a new level of business efficiency and will help the helicopter-building holding company at a faster pace to modernize onboard equipment on production models of helicopters, as well as introduce the latest generation digital complexes on the new Ka-brand helicopters.

    High-quality modern filling for our military helicopters is more than necessary. So this news is very good and very timely ...

    drinks this is a serious application for a medal, long-term agreements are just what is needed for our aviation industry and the army.

    A helicopter is, of course, the main enemy of the tankman ....

    But ...

    If it were not for the buzzing of the screws of the native "crocodiles" and "teshek bees" over our heads ... I would hardly have written these lines by clicking on the letters "Klava".

    Good and good-quality "iron" to you - our helicopter pilots !!! Upgrade both qualitatively and quantitatively.

    the development of helicopter engineering is of course very good, we have the best machines .. if only they would not be wrapped in the first stages of their formation

    the most important thing is that our military-industrial complex is working, it is very pleasing, the 90s passed and the stagnation in that area stopped, thank God ....

    I hope they will create a cabin no worse than the Apache.
    But somehow this question was somewhat launched with us

    Hmm, a new helicopter like the Ka-52 could have been created right away. Yes, and the Mi-28n too, but for him they say things aren’t even going from the overhead bus radar (just I don’t understand why, is it on all the pictures? Or is it a stupid container?). Hermes are not in a hurry to take something, and normal air-to-ground missiles and Hellfire analogues are not expected. In short, you can throw caps, but the amers and their Apaches jumped far ahead of us.

      Well, is "vortex-1" not an analogue? This refers to the new version with the IC GOS.

    As I understand it, now we have a coloring of aviation equipment as in the Western model and Tabouretkin did not like our own coloring, or is it different?
