Military communications in the mountains of Abkhazia are mastering the means of communication of a new generation

Military communications in the mountains of Abkhazia are mastering the means of communication of a new generation

About 100, communications specialists from the Russian military base stationed in the territory of Abkhazia, at the Tsabal mountain range, completed three-day special training camps.

During the classes, special attention was paid to the development of the latest portable satellite communications station "Belozer", which recently entered the compound.

The new station is designed to organize satellite radio networks and allows you to send digital and text messages, to negotiate subscribers who are separated from the main forces.

During training camps, the signaling servicemen worked out the technique of building communication through natural obstacles (mountain, forest belt), choosing the optimal place for setting a repeater, and electric drivers improved the skills of extreme driving of special equipment in conditions of rugged terrain and its proper operation.

During 3 days, communications workers worked around 20 standards for deploying and operating field mobile command posts and field communications centers, conducted more than 10 comprehensive training on modern P-149MA1 command and staff machines based on BTR-80 radio stations, P-166 radio stations based on KamAZ -43114, Р-419-МП based on KAMAZ-4350, upgraded integrated hardware and other equipment.

          There are no special reasons for joy.
          NATO radio stations:
          military internet
          adaptation equipment ~ 25 jumps / second,
          data encryption
          integrated scanners
          high speed video card transfer
          GPS receiver.

          And we still have TA-57 (telephone, classic) not thrown away.
          Two, sometimes three, generations behind.

            NATO has everything on transistors, in our R-kh lamps, the channel is cleaner and can withstand EMI, trance and freeze and fry and interference ... so that is not so simple.
            The lamp can be changed quickly (the maniacs from my appeal dabbled), but if the transistor burns out, the whole board needs to be changed. yes

    I think so. We always had problems with communication. Although ... As my mother says:

    So, if suddenly such a thing as communication ceases to exist (at least temporarily), you won’t have to get used to it for a long time.

      An example of the installation of a VHF radio station of the R-173 “Paragraph” range on an autonomous launcher (APU) 15U168 of a mobile soil missile system (PGRK) 15P158 "Topol" with an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) 15Zh58 (RT-2PM) of the Strategic Missile Forces of Russia.
      The radio station is installed in the right cockpit (commander's cockpit).

          So how old is Poplar? And while he still serves ... In 1986-87. I happened to take part in staging this complex on the database in one of the divisions of the Strategic Missile Forces. At the Topol-m APU, the communications, combat control and navigation systems are secret, in any case, I personally will not venture to announce.

            This NATO walkie-talkie scans 8 channels per second. R-173 has 10 spare parts (pre-programmed frequencies) and is converted from frequency to frequency in 3 seconds.

              Truffoff, on Topol R-173 is needed only for communication along the column on the march and to set something tricky cut for this purpose is not advisable. Now about
              P-161 with 4 (!) Fixed frequencies
              Do you have any idea what you're talking about? R-161 is a radio station consisting of the Equator transmitter, the Flash receiver, the Cherry adaptation equipment and the mass of attachments such as ZAS telegraph or telephone equipment and so on. And what you mention is the R-162 radio station, which we used to link the combat and direct guard posts with the guard MOBD. The fact that Western electronics is better is not a secret, but how you puff out your cheeks here looks ridiculous. By the way, you are introductory: you are in the forest and apart from the TA-57 and the cable reel, you have nothing. How to listen to the latest news on the broadcast network?

          As the saying goes: "Our microelectronics is the largest microelectronics in the world" ... It is unfortunate that so far our defense industry cannot catch up with the western one in terms of microelectronics, unless you even catch up with it from China.

          Google will soon make google glass glasses for general consumption, similar devices are being developed for the US Army, and these are communications, all kinds of maps, building plans, a laser rangefinder and a sight for aiming high-precision weapons and a bunch of other advantages that each soldier will have to wear a helmet , and weigh only 200-300 grams.

In hot spots, a satellite is better; in the event of a large-scale war, all satellites will be useless. So let both modify and improve.

    Yes ... if the United States calmly keeps all users of modern communications through satellites and the Internet on the spot, then I think the improvement of traditional communications is simply vital! In the photo from "Ascetic" the communication panel looks somewhat rude, and here the designers have to work to make sure that all these communication tools are not only reliable and convenient, but also beautiful and neat, it seems to me.

    after Serdyukovschina, it is simply necessary to restore all training and working out tasks on ss. And then the last 2-3 years, almost all training has been curtailed. The troops changed their deployment with such speed that the staffs did not have time to draw up new communication arrangements. The notification was broken, applications for the use of aviation were lost, it is not clear at what communication centers.

    As they say, this is a small step forward but still forward. Unfortunately, we are great behind in terms of elemental base and means of communication, and by several generations. But the groundwork under the Union was and specialists are still alive. The theoretical foundations of modern communications were laid back in the last century in 60-70 years, now only technologies and means are changing. Although we are behind - there is a kind of advantage in this. We need to learn from the best - who have already survived the competition and not make unnecessary movements on this track, as the Chinese are now. And our peoples do not have talent. Create your own and steal a good alien - in the world they do not disdain what we are worse.
