The new glazing of the cockpit of the AWACS A-100 Premier aircraft increased the protection of the crew from their own radar

51

The new glazing of the cockpit of the latest Russian A-100 Premier long-range radar and guidance aircraft allows not only to protect the crew from radiation from their own radar, but also has a much higher light transmission compared to earlier versions of AWACS aircraft. This was reported by Rostec.


As explained in the corporation, the specialists of ONPP "Technology" named after. A. G. Romashina managed to develop a new composition of the metal-optical coating, which not only made it possible to block the radiation of the aircraft's own radar, but also significantly increased the light transmission of the cockpit windows.

According to published information, the light transmission of the A-100 Premier cockpit windows is 65-70%, while on previous versions of the A-50 AWACS it did not exceed 30%.

Thanks to a specially developed composition and technology of magnetron sputtering, it was possible (...) to achieve light transmission of cockpit glass up to 65-70%. On the previous generation of flying radars, this figure did not exceed 30%

- leads TASS message from Rostec.

On February 100, 10, the newest long-range radar surveillance and guidance aircraft A-2022 Premier flew for the first time with the radar turned on. The tests confirmed the regular operation of special equipment and on-board systems of the aircraft in conditions of high electromagnetic radiation. Aviation the new generation A-100 Premier complex was created on the basis of the Il-76MD-90A aircraft and is designed to detect and track air and other targets and direct combat aircraft at them.

      does it affect flyers?, exposure?

      Any microwave radiation does not affect flyers, signalmen, radar operators.
      Affects only their reproductive functions, hairline and life expectancy.
      Unfortunately downgrading.

            Well, why "doubted"? I talk to you as you deserve it - like a professional with a moron. Diseases "CCC" according to the list of occupational diseases have nothing to do with EMI radiation. Think of something else - thalassemia, for example. And it will probably be a discovery for you that each case of an occupational disease is investigated by a commission of occupational pathologists. And your opinions from Malakhov's programs - "my cousin lives in the village with health problems, many of them have problems with CCC there ..." anything from the countryside. Infa 100. - you can wipe it off, it does not cause anything but laughter from those who deal with these issues every day. And in general, there is no medical education - do not meddle in near-medical issues; everything is much more complicated than it seems at first glance.

        The biggest problem is the lack of brains. Voice what problems the drivers have. I'll tell you - none. Flyers may have if they fall under radar radiation at short distances, but who will irradiate them? Now tell me, we all have cell phones, the operation of which is provided by numerous repeaters .. do you have any problems? I don’t have it yet, although it’s already half a century behind.

      I had to install domestic electronics, earlier the developers included foreign electronics in the project. Import substitution.
      .“The flight took place in the normal mode. All systems and equipment worked correctly. The crew fully completed the flight task, having checked the stability and controllability of the aircraft in the given piloting modes, as well as the operation of the complex installed on the aircraft, ”said the crew commander, test pilot of the TANTK im. G.M. Berieva, Honored Test Pilot First Class Sergey Parkhaev.

      Preliminary flight tests of the A-100 aircraft began in February 2019. Previously, the A-100LL flying laboratory performed several flights as part of flight design tests. The Il-76MD-90A, mass-produced at the Ulyanovsk Aviastar-SP, became the platform for the new generation AWACS aviation complex. The development of the A-100 is carried out by specialists from the Vega concern of the Roselectronics holding and the TANTK named after A.I. G.M. Beriev. The aircraft is equipped with a fairing with an antenna system and special radio equipment. A-100 can detect and track air and other targets, as well as participate in the control of fighter and attack aircraft when pointing at air, ground and sea targets.

      According to the press service of Rostec, when creating radio equipment for the A-100, technical solutions based on modern electronic component base, high-performance computing tools, and the latest achievements of domestic radio electronics were used. This applies to both the means of obtaining information and the computer complex for its processing, as well as automated workplaces of operators.

      “An important stage of testing the A-100, an aviation complex, which embodies the most advanced developments, has begun. During 2022, we plan to complete the cycle of preliminary flight tests and transfer the complex for state joint tests,” said Vladimir Verba, General Designer of the Vega Concern, Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

        Let me remind you, like an old Erelasnik to an old Erelasnik, that the waves of Svitovog radiation are three orders of magnitude long! Charles!!! shorter, or smaller, or thinner than the working wavelengths of radars on aircraft. winked
        But seriously, you have probably heard in life that radio waves of all ranges cannot penetrate to a depth below 10 meters under the sea surface - for this reason it is impossible to establish a permanent connection with submarines. Almost all radars, air defense systems, etc., etc. are protected from radiation by elementary tin lining of cabins and trailers, not even bulletproof armor. On some samples of such weapons, where jobs are located in the same trailer with radar transmitter generators (such as the P-15 mentioned above), these same r / m can be separated from each other by the simplest cotton curtains with metallized thread. Even when working in a trailer with an oscilloscope, the radiation of a working radar is observed in the form of minor interference (or the so-called "pickup"). But if you bring, say, a wrench to the trailer trim from the outside, then you can observe the slipping of the V / H spark in a gap of up to three centimeters, even with the trailer or cabin completely and according to the rules grounded. Well, fluorescent lamps flash during the passage of the beam, even burnt out.
        So the whole article is either a "duck" or a PR campaign

Romashina managed to develop a new composition of the metal-optical coating, which not only made it possible to block the radiation of the aircraft's own radar, but also significantly increased the light transmission of the cockpit windows.

    They probably used spraying like the Su-57.
    As Vladimir Vikulin, chief designer of NPP Tekhnologiya, told Izvestia, spraying is made multi-layer from several metals - gold, indium and tin. The thickness of one layer does not exceed 20 nanometers (in one meter - a billion nanometers), and the entire film - 90 nanometers. Despite such an insignificant amount of metal, the radio visibility of the in-cab equipment is reduced by 250 times.
