Spy under the clouds. Air monitoring airplanes become even more vigorous

A group of Russian officers are now flying over the military garrisons of Denmark. Their aerial inspection will last until November 22, and the Aalborg airfield is chosen as the starting point.


In the framework of the international program "Open Skies", which participants are Russia and Denmark, representatives of the Russian Defense Ministry from the board of the An-30B aircraft take pictures and video of the Scandinavian partners and naval facilities. What kind of “goals” have already appeared and will still fall into the lenses of observers, they prefer not to spread to the military departments of the countries.

- We submitted an application in advance, where we indicated the alleged inspection sites. It was examined in Copenhagen, after which they agreed to the control flights. To ensure that the Antonov’s crew didn’t stray from the route, Danish specialists will accompany our inspectors in each flight, the RG correspondent was told in the Russian Ministry of Defense. The capabilities of international controllers are practically unlimited. They have the right to record the movement of troops and ships, as well as to remove any objects of the army and naval infrastructure. This procedure is universal, and it has been adhered to by our military for many years during inspections abroad. However, their current trip stands apart. The fact is that in Denmark for the first time they are testing new digital control equipment. According to Sergei Ryzhkov, head of the National Center for Nuclear Danger Reduction, Russia became the first state party to the Open Skies agreement, which installed modern optoelectronic systems on its observation aircraft. In late September, they underwent an international examination with 58 experts from 22 States parties to the treaty. What kind of technological innovations are used in this equipment, the military, for obvious reasons, are silent. However, it is known that photo and video materials made with its help are of high image quality. Which fully complies with the requirement of the contract: the basic types of military equipment should be clearly recognized in the pictures and, for example, the crane should not look like a rocket launcher.

I must say that for such inspections in Russia, two types of aircraft are certified - An-30B (flights over European countries) and Tu-214OH (video control in the USA and Canada). Tupolev was specially made for the Open Sky program and is currently undergoing pilot operation. For him, they created a unique electronic "stuffing" and integrated the controls, information receiving and processing equipment, onboard equipment and a number of ground complexes into a single complex. According to the general designer of this system, Vladimir Verba, now for one flight you can get four types of information - from digital aerial cameras, infrared and conventional video cameras, as well as from a side-looking radar.

- In Alaska and the Aleutian Islands are located US military facilities. The sky above them more than 300 days a year closed by clouds, limiting the possibilities of space reconnaissance. Our surveillance system allows the aircraft to fly under the clouds and get information. Of course, we will not see the stars on the epaulets, but we will see the marina, the missile shaft or the radar guaranteed, - Verba promises.

    "..That the crew of" Antonov "did not go astray .."
    It's a pity. I think it wouldn’t hurt to get off the route sometimes! laughing

      I consider this whole open-air venture, the mask of the hypocritical "friendship" between the West and us. Well the point? What is important, they will not photograph us, this is the work of the special services, what can be known is known both to us and to them.

        Let it go, let it I think our military also thinks with their heads how and where to show what and what to see, you look at some liberal in the west, the "DEEP-ROLLING MACHINE" will break from strain)))

        The minus is not mine. Usually negative and do not comment on stupidity or trolls.
        I'm actually interested (you have such an avatar) "what you can know, and we and they know".

    He is warned, it means he is armed. Many military and pre-war companies have repeatedly saved the knowledge of the location of potential aggressors. Despite all the precautions on the part of the inspectors, it is almost impossible to hide some things. am

    Of course, we won’t see the stars on the shoulder straps, but we’ll be guaranteed to see the sea pier, missile shaft or radar, ”Verba promises.

    Shy, however. laughing And the stars will make out the structure of the fabric on which these stars are attached. good

    Of course, "open skies" increase the level of mutual trust and at the same time allows view "interesting" places from the point of view of aerial reconnaissance. This will be a good addition to space vehicles.

    What does confidence have to do with it? These surveys, both they and we need to compile electronic maps of the area near objects, for laying cruise missiles in the GOS.

    The Open Skies program is both necessary and important - the more people in the same Europe know about us, the less they will fear the American fairy tale about the “wild Russian bear.” This means that we will need to allocate less funds to the defense industry. A small remark: except for yesterday's friends of the Poles and Balts.

    The flights under this program are known in advance to the receiving party. You can’t hide the Baikonur cosmodrome, but small ground objects are real.

    Equipment for infrared shooting appeared in our country in 1972. There were still devices for shooting in polarized light. I couldn’t see anything wrong with the polarized pictures (with the naked eye), and we didn’t have glasses or other devices that highlight the polar component. the infrared images were not detailed and the colors did not match the real ones, but the objects could be determined. The tanks, for example, hidden under the trees in the forest, looked like oval red spots. I think some tankers will be especially interested to know what they are good for masked equipment is clearly visible. After 10-15 minutes after landing the reconnaissance aircraft, the coordinates of the targets were already transferred to the division headquarters.

      In spectrozonal images, everything is more than visible. If the group walked along the lawn, then about 12 hours the trace is clearly visible. And the tank in the forest soldier

        12 hours no trace is kept, because any heat from ice is just the difference of t-ry. my camera (FLIR) clearly captures the difference of 0,1 degrees. if you put your bare hand to the wall. sed last for about 20 -25 9 minutes depending on the outside temperature and wall temperature), but not a trace last for 12 hours. on the ground . from shoes, unless of course they warm their tracks with a flamethrower.

          a spectrozonal image reveals the difference in plant transpiration. If the branch or grass is damaged, transpiration drops and the damaged spots are visible very well. In the steppes, it works worse, but in the field or in the meadows - Mama Do not Cry soldier

    All joint post-perestroika programs with the Americans were in the red. I think here they are of great benefit. Indirect confirmation is the advertising of this program.
    Our planes are good, and should carry passengers instead of Boeing, article -.

    And let these same "partners" do not know that we see more than they think.
