At the Le Bourget-2013 international aerospace show, Russia introduced the Su-35S multifunction fighter equipped with the latest BINS-SP2 in-flight inertial navigation system. It is fully developed and created at the enterprises of the Concern Radioelectronic Technologies (KRET) of the State Corporation Rostec. BINS-SP2 autonomously determines the location of the aircraft in the absence of satellite navigation and communication with ground services. The new navigation system will be used on the fifth generation fighter T-50, created in the framework of the program “Perspective aviation Frontline Aviation Complex ”(PAK FA).
The BINS-SP2 system is intended for determining the location of an object, integrated processing and issuing navigation and flight information. The system is capable of offline determination in the absence of signals from the outside to determine the coordinates and motion parameters of the object on which it is installed. The architecture of BINS-SP2 is based on three laser gyroscopes and three quartz accelerometers.
Bins-SP2 is able to determine the location of the aircraft twice as accurately as the previous version of the system. The development and testing of equipment was carried out by the Moscow Institute of Electromechanics and Automation (MIEA) - one of the leading scientific centers of KRET. Production of BINS-SP2 is mastered at the production facilities of the Ramensky Instrument-Making Plant, also part of the Concern.
“The BINS-SP2 system is capable of operating at ultrahigh and ultralow temperatures from minus 60 to plus 60 degrees at altitudes up to 25 kilometers,” Alexei Kuznetsov, Director General of MIEA, said, “it corresponds to the world's best analogues”.
“The cost of the system, fully developed and produced by Russian enterprises, is more than 40% lower than that of their foreign counterparts. At the same time, according to the tactical and technical characteristics, BINS-SP2 is ahead of foreign equipment, ”says Anatoly Chumakov, General Director of the RPG. “We expect a high level of demand for BINS-SP2 from both military and civilian customers.”
The life cycle of BINS-SP2 is 10 thousand hours, which is almost two times more than the existing analogues in the world. It is planned to install three modified systems for civil aircraft, and two for military ones. Bins-SP2 is universal and can be used both on air, and on sea and land equipment.
