Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation: aviation guided missiles will be equipped with a matrix infrared homing head

In the Russian Federation it is planned to equip aviation guided missiles with a matrix infrared homing head of Russian production. This was told by the Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation, General of the Army Pavel Popov.


The Main Directorate of Innovative Development of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation studied the results of the tests that took place back in October 2022. They were held in the city of Akhtubinsk together with the High Command of the Aerospace Forces of Russia.

В interview In the Krasnaya Zvezda newspaper, Army General Popov noted that during the tests, the basic algorithms of the first domestic matrix infrared homing head, which will be equipped with short-range air-to-air guided missiles, were tested. The tests were considered successful as the product proved its effectiveness.

Earlier it was reported that the Tactical Missiles Corporation tested samples of the Kh-MD-E short-range homing guided missile. The corporation is working on improving small-sized guided missiles, which could be used to equip not only unmanned aerial vehicles, but also front-line aircraft.

One example of such missiles is the Kh-MD-E short-range guided missile, which is still in the development stage. In the near future, work on it is promised to be completed. The supply of such missiles to the Russian Aerospace Forces will significantly enhance the combat capabilities of front-line aviation.

    In short, while the roasted rooster did not peck, they did not itch, and bought over the hill. How pecked - it turned out. that everything has been done with us for a long time, it’s just that in the ministries they didn’t give development progress, preferring to buy over the hill. Well, exactly, as with composites for wings, which have been gathering dust at FSUE VNIINM for more than 15 years - and no one needs them - it’s easier to buy.

      To put it in your pocket if possible. This is the main problem of today's Russia, which has been going on since the 90s, when the principle was formed, why do something when you can buy, promoted by unscrupulous officials who want to cash in at any cost.

        Yes, but if you bought expensive domestic materials and components instead of cheap foreign analogues, which are no worse in quality, wouldn’t you be indignant at the waste of funds in the same way?

          I just remember how in the 2003s we even had a UTP cable for networks, well, this is a cord that goes to your computer - and they didn’t produce it, Saranskcable, it seems, started somewhere in XNUMX ... Well, at first it was more expensive , and specifically worse. And now, not just at times, but almost an order of magnitude lower price tag. Moreover, if there were no domestic ones, without competition, SVEN would be different there and would not raise the price by an order of magnitude, or would not sell at all.
          Well, that is, this is an example of how everything quickly and quickly paid off ... And so it always is - at first you work without profit, but as it has already rolled - just have time to count the loot. And the earlier you start behind the leader, the faster you will catch up. In this regard, I can tell you so much about the network that the portal will have to be renamed)))

            This is if the conditions are more or less equal with competitors. And if the equipment is 30-40 years older than that of competitors, then in the conditions of free trade you will not do anything until you purchase the equipment and get specialists who are able to work effectively on it, that is, who have experience. If you are the country's leading enterprise in this area, then it is very likely that your specialists will be forced to receive this very experience from you. Although, what saves here is that everyone is trying to sell at a higher price, so there is still room for maneuver: at a higher cost, you can rent at the same price, albeit with a lower net profit, but gaining invaluable competencies.

              Let's briefly something - for the positive!

              And for the positive, everything is generally simple and short. In 2014, sanctions were violated, and first of all on electronics and communications equipment, in 2022 they completely blocked supplies - and the price of communications remained the same, even less than inflation. Why? But the cost has not changed - everything is GENERALLY produced in the country. That's all - and shorter and clearer, well, there's simply nowhere laughing And by the way, this is despite the fact that in terms of the level of digitalization of society, we are in a solid first place on the planet, that is, in demand like nowhere else in the world.
              An example for, until 2014, in the same Marik, connection to the network was paid - about a hundred bucks. In the Russian Federation, almost everywhere they already take a turn, because the connection is simply free, in Moscow it stopped being paid back in 2000, when ADSL modems went to the masses. About the cost of an Internet in one of the smallest cities in Ukraine and in Russia. Well, I’ll take it in my country house, wired Internet, from the nearest urban settlement it is powered by optics, so let’s say that it’s a cottage village, from it a wired Internet goes home. In terms of money, it was 8 times more expensive in Marik than in that village, and this despite the fact that the network in the city is simply easier to do, and much more profitable - the population density is higher, there are fewer consumables

          If you do not give a course to domestic developments, then they will always be expensive.
          Developing something early on is extremely expensive. Prototyping, finishing, creating new versions and implementing them are also quite expensive. Only after the start of serial mass production can we talk about comparing the cost of domestic and foreign analogues.

          Domestic by no means can be more expensive than imported for the state:
          They mined ore - they paid a tax for the use of subsoil,
          enriched ore - paid tax
          enriched ore was smelted into metal - they paid a tax
          they made devices, components and assemblies from metals - they paid a tax
          a rocket was assembled from instruments and assemblies - they paid a tax.
          all this was taken all over the country - almost 50% of the tax is included in the price of gasoline
          workers at each stage received a salary and paid tax
          Now tell me, at what stage did the state offend itself and is it really expensive for the state to buy "expensive" toys produced by its industry?
          And this is an oversimplified scheme, in fact, there will be much more stages with the payment of taxes.

        This is called capitalism! When it is done not as better and more profitable for the country, but as more profitable for a group of officials responsible for the direction they lead. This is not only here, but everywhere, whoever paid more is on horseback, albeit with a worse offer.

      Rather, you can’t get a kickback from the research institute.

        Rather, the research institute does not have a conveyor for the production of matrices, therefore, you must first invest in production, recruit specialists, work everything out well, endure missed deadlines and a lot of marriage at first. And it’s easy to buy over the hill - you paid and received it. In the short term, it is easier to buy, in the long term - to make your own line. But who is looking at such prospects?

      It is unlikely that everything was straight, and it is unlikely that there is. But there are 2 important factors:
      1. Russia is still one of the most educated countries in the world.
      2. Advanced products of Western electronics are still being imported into Russia, and this is not even hidden.

      PS I decided to search the Internet - my first statement was not confirmed :)

      Previously, profitability and loss-free production were simply at the forefront, but now it is absolutely not important, and no one will sell us.

    The entire article is written in the future tense. The donkey/padishah formula works reliably. Like a Swiss watch.
    It was also necessary to mention that these missiles will be installed on the SU75.

    The missile was developed in three versions with different guidance heads: semi-active laser, active and passive radar. In the first case, X-MD-E is guided by a laser mark on the target, formed by the pointer beam. In the second, it independently searches for a target by means of radar. In the third, it is aimed at a radio signal of a certain frequency - for example, at the radiation of an enemy radar. Rossiyskaya Gazeta https://rg.ru/2022/08/11/rossiia-sozdala-kompaktnuiu-raketu-dlia-dronov.html

    That is, the target must be constantly illuminated with a laser ... Protecting the rocket carrier, we launch it 40 km from the target, and an aircraft controller sits next to the target and, risking his life, shines with a laser. Of course, the option of lighting from a drone is possible, but a drone hanging over a target is not a long-liver either.

      What aircraft carrier? Hanging container with a laser designator, secondly, not only all targets in the air, these are supersonic maneuverable fighters. URVV and SAM with radar guidance LTC against missiles with thermal seeker. So with laser guidance, the same thing is needed, this method is very difficult to counteract a large, poorly maneuverable target.

      What backlight are you talking about? Read the title of the article!
      aviation guided missiles will be equipped with a matrix infrared homing head
      What does "laser target illumination" have to do with it? If the missile is aimed at the IR signature of the target !!! And the matrix one, it's like a PFAR, a field dotted with SE squares (IR sensors). Which of them receives a stronger signal, that one gives a control impulse to the actuator, to turn the SD on the target. This is a passive guidance channel. Previously, the R-60 had a "sting" behind a glass cap behind a burning cigarette butt ... But now everything is "flat" and there are no moving parts, which increases the impact reliability of the product, and at the same time sensitivity ... something does not "fog" and does not getting dirty...
      So, this is a step forward in equipping our Air Force with all-aspect weapons of the near WB.

    This is the same news on VO. And the general principle of this head?
    If it's news, then at least a brief digression.
    You definitely won’t reveal the state secret. Otherwise, there would be no news.

    Everything depends on financing the pockets of state officials and the lack of total control in strategically important areas.
