On the repair of hydro-acoustic systems on the frigate and corvettes of the Ukrainian Navy

In the Ukrainian weekly magazine "Correspondent" in the article of Maxim Butchenko "Crystal affairs master", telling about the company" Kliver "(the city of Krasny Luch), unexpectedly interesting details are presented related to the maintenance of the combat readiness of the ships of the Ukrainian Navy.

Corvettes "Khmelnitsky", "Vinnitsa" and "Ternopil" of the Ukrainian Navy

So, it is reported that over the past three years, this company has restored the combat effectiveness of the ships of the Navy, namely their sonar systems. The article reports that the SAC of the “Ukrainian frigates” were not operational, and the “enemy submarine cost nothing to get closer to the domestic ships to destroy them and go unnoticed. Such a possibility existed for two decades of the country's independence: the deplorable state of the ships turned them into an easy target, but three years ago the flagship of the Ukrainian fleet The frigate Getman Sagaidachny acquired acoustic vision: Cleaver restored all his instruments in a few months. Behind him, the “Lutsk” and “Ternopol” corvettes “saw the light. This was reported to the magazine by Alexey Alekseenko, head of the hydroacoustic repair department of the enterprise.

The expert also said that Kliver, on the basis of its own design bureau, had created a powerful SAC capable of detecting Kilo-type submarines (the 877 / 636 project). To the technological know-how of "Klivera", officials from the People's Republic of China showed interest - the first GAK will soon go there.

Interestingly, in addition to naval underwater acoustics, the company produces sapphire monocrystals, which are exported to Switzerland (for the watch industry), Israel (the medical industry), and Russia (used as protective screens in metallurgy).

        And in my opinion, the Chinese are great! They are making up the development of the country, if there is not one, it’s possible to lick it, not by washing so much. You don’t have to open your mouth. Premonition ...- Well, well, this is my opinion.

    Officials from the PRC have shown interest in Cleaver's technological know-how - soon the first SJSC will go there. Then they will screw a lighter and a calculator watch to it and sell it to Ukraine, but it will be completely different money laughing

    Good morning everyone! hi
    Well, well done, not everyone has collapsed. If you created a really powerful hack - doubly well done. But only the Chinese do not need to sell. The copywriters will flood the entire market with them, without asking permission from Ukraine. negative

    capable of detecting submarines of the Kilo type (project 877/663), and Borean is unlikely to find.

    this plant in Krasniy Luch, embodies the development of the Central Design Bureau of Hydroacoustics (Gidropribor) in Kiev. Once it was a huge enterprise with dozens of many-story buildings on Solomenka. Now these buildings are rented by businesses, or simply demolished and built office and retail space. But local people still continue to be guided by the numbering of the old buildings of the Hydraulic Instrument.

    A serious company with a full range of products in the field of sonar.

    Hydroacoustic station "Bronze-ME-LUGAN"
    Functions performed:
    Underwater lighting;
    Search, detection, determination of coordinates and tracking of underwater objects;
    Determining the distance to the target (underwater object);
    Target data output to ship systems;
    Training of sonar operators.

    Range scale - 4,8,16, 32 km
    Operating frequencies - 6,5-7,5 kHz
    Bearing detection tolerance - up to 20
    Distance tolerance - up to 1%

    Underwater lighting system "KLIVER-1"

    "KLIVER-1" is an underwater lighting system designed for installation at sea depths from 50 to 200 m.

    The system consists of autonomous radio hydroacoustic stations (ARGAS) "KLIVER-10" and a coastal radio receiving station "KLIVER-RP".

    ARGAS includes a sonar antenna, a system for receiving and processing information, and VHF beacons.

    VHF beacons transmit information about an underwater object to a coastal post.

    The distance between the coastal post and the beacon is 50-70 km - with a radio antenna height of the coastal post above sea level of 200 m.

    Underwater lighting system can be installed in the form of extended barriers, which consist of several ARGAS "KLIVER-10", or single ARGAS "KLIVER-10".

    The area of ​​water protected by one KLIVER-10 station is 50-300 square meters. km, depending on the hydrology of the place of setting ARGAS.

    Depth of installation ARGAS from the surface of the water - from 30 to 60 m.
    Distances between ARGAS in the security barrier are from 4 to 10 km, depending on the hydrology of the installation site.

    ARGAS has a working life of up to 12 months and can be extended at the specific request of the customer.

    Hydroacoustic antennas and transducers.

    Development, manufacture, repair and modernization of sonar antennas and transducers of a wide range of frequencies, power and purpose.

    Hydroacoustic transducers: cylindrical (solid, sectioned, reinforced), lamellar, spherical, longitudinally bending, arched, vector, combined.

      Small-sized sonar tracking station for underwater swimmers (divers)
      The sonar station is designed to detect underwater swimmers while providing:

      Protection of ships, yachts when parked in port, on the high seas and in roads;
      Protection of industrial facilities in ports and harbors, offshore oil and gas platforms and pipelines;
      Tracking divers during training dives;
      Tracking divers when performing underwater research, rescue, installation and other works.

      Information about the location of the underwater swimmers is displayed on the display screen of the CEO.
      As a result of the detection of unauthorized penetration of underwater swimmers and their means of transportation, the GAS transmits information to warning systems and, if necessary, to the combat system of underwater targets.
      The hydroacoustic station does not require special premises for its location and can be operated directly from the side of a boat, yacht, ship, pier or platform.
