New tank computers for the Merkava



The Israel Defense Forces plans to upgrade computers used to control the battle on tanks Merkava

The IDF ground forces decided to upgrade all the computer systems used on their tanks. The computers of the fire control system are integrated into the combat control systems of various tanks (Merkava 2, 3 and 4).

The computers are connected to the IDF combat information management system (C4I, command, control, communications, computers and information) and are part of the Digital Army Program (DAP). The project for the modernization of tank computers is led by a unit of the combat information and control system of the Ground Forces headed by Brigadier General Mike Mastai.

As part of an order placed in the defense industry, the IDF intends to acquire high-strength computers with almost half a terabyte of memory each for tanks of regular and reserve units. This modernization will allow the use of more advanced maps and significantly reduce the time it takes to complete the data from the sensor to the shooter, including through coordination with related forces, such as aviation. This corresponds to the structure of the IDF’s vision of providing the ability to transmit the exact coordinates of the fire from ground forces and vice versa.

    Like it or not, and the electronic filling of Merkava is good. I would like to compare t-90s with the electronic brain, but I do not understand this topic.

      It is necessary to somehow "get" a sample for acquaintance, and then you can compare ... repeat

        Soon in Syria, there will be such an opportunity.
        Sooner or later, Israel will climb there.
        So there will be work for specialists. And in Tartus.

          4 Merkavas are so numerous that they will be scattered left and right, and in good order to be thrown into enemy territory. And of course Merkava 4 will replenish the collection of Merkava 1, 2 and 3 in Kubinka. wink

              Perhaps that is why Armata is so similar to him.

                  Yes, of the modern Russian armored vehicles in the world market, only the T-90 has a steady demand. And meets world requirements.
                  And what will they buy for Azerbaijan?

                        Pentium MMX will be replaced by Pentium II and will double the memory capacity - from 32 to 64 megabytes!

                      New radial piston engine. Long base. The problem with the weight distribution is diving nose, but so far no one is paying any attention to this module. Well, then the whole 1 platform has been done and while the project is frozen. In short, nothing is clear yet.

              Given the future value, ,, Almaty ,, ((T-90)) is already 115 mm rubles.
              They can easily freeze a project.
              And they will do something economy class. ((As BTR-80/82 did)) instead of the BTR-90 adopted for service.
              As with self-propelled guns ,, Vienna ,, in service, economy, hosta, based on MT-LD.
              Not adopted by the BMP-3F marines.

    For example: Sergey Brin (Google’s creator), Facebook was founded by several Jews: Mark Zuckerberg, Eduardo Saverin and Dustin Moskovits, Microsoft is headed by Steve Ballmer, Yuri Milner manages Mail.ru, Odnoklassniki, ICQ. Vkontakte owners are Vyacheslav Mirilashvili (60%) and Mikhail Mirilashvili (10%) (respectively, the son and father of businessman Mikhail Mirilashvili), as well as Lev Leviev (10%). As well as ICQ, a virtual keyboard, antivirus and BitTorrent.

          Jews have always considered themselves smarter than everyone, but now they want their tanks to be smarter than tanks of other states. wink
          Only the Israelis need to be on the alert, otherwise the tank is smarter than a Jew will not lead to anything good. what

    The computers are connected to the IDF combat information management system (C4I, command, control, communications, computers and information) and are part of the Digital Army Program (DAP). The project for the modernization of tank computers is led by a unit of the combat information and control system of the Ground Forces headed by Brigadier General Mike Mastai.

    The main thing is to have a reliable system. And then, if something goes wrong, you will become a target for your own aircraft. The professor would like more detail, and examples of combat use (previous systems) would not hurt.

    It would be better, for example, to learn how to make a gun OWN. Although, as a potential adversary, it is better to ride with an ancient .. mammoth rheinmetal. Electronics, of course, is a good thing, but not the main one, and also potentially dangerous in terms of reliability.

            I quit not because of problems with Armata, but because of the relationship at work. Young and brisk came and they have more confidence than we have. But I’m not going far, to Transmash. I’d better do trams and Msta-S than spoil my nerves in a dispute with a greyhound youth.

      Well, what was invented was made in the 60s. All western MBTs (including English, Challenger,)) + .YU.Korean and Japanese have 120 tank guns in service
      ,, Rheinmetal ,,
      120-mm smoothbore tank gun MG-251 of the company, TAAS-Israel Industries,
      The MG-120 251-mm smoothbore tank gun was developed by TAAS-Israel, and was first shown in 1989 as the main weapon of the Merkava-3 tank.
      This 120 mm smoothbore gun is similar to the 120 mm smoothbore gun of the German company Rheinmetall, but has other devices and more compact recoil devices and overall dimensions. Http://btvt.narod.ru/4/israel_gun.files/image003.jpg
