Currently, the combat training of the Air Force (Air Force) of Russia is provided by 9 aviation polygons and 12 branches (target fields).
In accordance with the Development Plan of the Russian Armed Forces polygons, in 2014, measures will be taken to develop and modernize the Air Force priority polygons.
At the first stage, it is planned to modernize the polygons of the Military Training and Scientific Center (VUNC) of the Air Force “N.E. Zhukovsky and Yu.A.

Upgrading of the remaining polygons is scheduled for 2016 year.
As part of the modernization of priority landfills, it is planned to replace outdated equipment, automate target field management using PVM (manufacturing transitional devices (blocks) to control target fields), equip the perimeters of polygons with sensors (detection, movement and intersection of control points) with automatic obstacles blocking the passage ), equipping aviation landfills with new (promising) means of communication and radio engineering support of flights, pneumatic (pneumatic frame m) mock-ups, as well as the deployment of an automatic objective monitoring system for the results of the use of aviation weapons.
