Novosibirsk has developed a new-generation optical detonator



The designers of the Novosibirsk Scientific Research Institute of Electronic Instruments / NIIEP / have developed a new generation of optical proximity fuze, designed for the Strela anti-aircraft missile system of the Russian ground forces. This was reported by ITAR-TASS today by Svetlana Drozdova, a representative of NIIEP, who works in the defense industry.

The newest fuse was developed by order of the Scientific-Production Concern "Engineering Technologies" / JSC "NPK" Tekhmash "/.
"The optical proximity fuze successfully passed the ground tests. Their results confirmed that the development has high technical characteristics," said Drozdova.

NIIEP does not yet disclose the technical characteristics of the development. Industrial production of a new fuse has not yet begun, but a number of export contracts have already been concluded for this type of weapon.

At the heart of the work of a contactless optical fuse that is resistant to interference is a response to the heat radiation of a target. It initiates in a split second a blast of a missile warhead when flying close to a target or when self-destructing in the event of a miss. The fuse includes an electron-optical unit consisting of radiant energy receivers that provide all-round visibility, including towards the rocket axis. The fuse provides the battery power in the form of a chemical current source.

The Scientific-Research Institute of Electronic Devices, which has created dozens of non-contact explosive systems, is a member of NPK Tekhmash and develops and manufactures computing devices and control systems for various types of weapons and military equipment. The developments and products of NIIEP are used, in particular, in the guidance systems of Russian mobile missile of Iskander, Thor, Grad, Smerch complexes.

    I am proud that the NIIEP is located near my house !!!

      And it kills me that they haven’t set anything yet, but already have a “series of export contracts”. How long will the thirst for profit prevail over the security of the country? This fuse in the "export" version can not be done.

      Minus, which are against everything in principle. Pacifists are tattered.

    Modernization of the workhorse will significantly increase its performance characteristics

      It is unlikely that the rocket has remained old, just the fuse will fire more clearly, but the probability of hitting the target will increase slightly.

        A strange statement from an air defense officer, i.e. our complexes in terms of mass use of EW opponents do not plan? If the rocket will determine much more precisely when it is necessary to carry out a detonation, then probably the interference and false targets will affect much less the probability of hitting the target? And yes, you can use old fuses for banana warriors. Although for rockets they are all non-contact.

    but a number of export contracts for this type of weapon have already been concluded.

    Indiscreet question, and when to the Russian army?

    How did they manage to conclude contracts without a TTX designation?

    Well done, thank you, but this inscription somehow upsets: Industrial production of a new fuse has not yet begun, but a number of export contracts for this type of weapon have already been concluded.

    Are we doing for our country or for export? Why is everything new and first for export? With such an approach, let’s say even our Chinese neighbors don’t need to develop new technology .... why will our scientists do everything

    Yes, and note, it was developed on your money, mine and other citizens of the country. And to drive for the cordon is already disgusting.

    Guys, the soul rejoices when they invent products that strengthen our defenses ... If only everything worked as it should!

    Your mother. When will all the old stuff be replaced and written off? The complex itself is ancient as ... Apparently, and updated for that. that it would be possible to sell. So everything is exported ...
