The Air Force received a modernized radar complex A-50U

The Air Force received a modernized radar complex A-50UThe modernized multifunctional complex A-50U, designed for radar surveillance and guidance, was put into service with the Air Force, said Colonel Vladimir Drik, the spokesman for the press service and information department of the Defense Ministry for the Air Force.


“On the A-50 aircraft, work was carried out on a deep modernization of the existing radio engineering complex, as a result of which a number of indicators of the onboard radio engineering complex A-50U were significantly improved,” Drik said, Interfax reports.

In particular, according to him, the capabilities of the radar station for detecting various types of airborne targets, including helicopters, cruise missiles, and supersonic aircraft, have been expanded. Modern computing facilities have been used, a satellite communications station has been modernized, and reliability indicators of the onboard complex have been significantly increased.

Airplanes of the A-50 radar patrol and guidance, based on the IL-76 serial aircraft. Began to enter service with the Air Force 1984 year.

The crews of A-50 in 2011 took an active part in providing major exercises, including international ones - “Watchful Eagle-2011”, “Watchful Sky-2011”, “Center-2011”.

    “On the A-50 aircraft, work was carried out to deeply modernize the existing radio engineering complex, as a result of which a number of indicators of the A-50U airborne radio complex were significantly improved,”

    Not only this, but also the ability to take on board more fuel with the same take-off weight. Accordingly, the flight range and the time for completing a combat mission at a given milestone increased. Improved capabilities for detecting low-flying and unobtrusive air targets (including in the conditions of active use of REP equipment) with measuring their angular coordinates, speed and range. In addition, the radar provides the detection of an air target such as a helicopter, as well as an overview of the sea surface with the detection of surface targets and the measurement of their coordinates. At the same time, in comparison with the A-50, the characteristics of target detection in the rear hemisphere are improved.

    Put into service or adopted? Something I'm more inclined towards the second option.

      From another source - Russian Air Force accepted the upgraded A-50U long-range radar detection aircraft was put into service, said Air Force spokesman Colonel Vladimir Drik.
      For the journalists that they accepted that they put one hell.

        Ahhh, well, we have a lot of things to take, just don’t buy them then for some reason. So, dust in the eyes, like work.

      These aircraft are in service for a long time, this one was simply modernized !! They improved its performance characteristics! In the army since 1984!

    I’m not only able but also want sure that the army will receive the necessary weapons in the coming years

    but this is only one - it’s not enough

      Yes, one is not enough. But better than nothing. Another good news came - from the beginning of 2011, the Eastern Military District received more than a hundred units of new planes and helicopters (12 Ka-52 Alligator attack helicopters, eight Mi-8AMTSh helicopters, and two heavy transport vehicles are expected to arrive in Chernigov in November this year) Mi-26 helicopter, in the summer of 2011 two Su-30M2 and 46 Su-27SM fighter aircraft were part of the BBO fleet, from the beginning of this year 12 Su-25SM attack aircraft received the BBO attack aircraft; the district will receive the same number of aircraft at the beginning of 2012 .). Of course, this is not enough, especially taking into account the growth of military activity in China, but the trend is on the face, and the trend is good.

    Honor and praise to the creators of the great, reliable, unpretentious hard worker Il - 76, who after decades has continued his service for the good of the country, but it is time to create a new base platform, which is dictated by new challenges and opportunities.

    Yes, Vadim, is fully computerized. On the old stands another lamp. They waited for this half a year ago, now they’ll break it in, fix it and slap it.

      Sergh, under radiation conditions, the computerized one will either hang or cover forever (breakdown). And the lamp will work. It is for this reason that our defense industry has held onto lamp technology for so long.

      In general, I can hardly imagine what will happen to military electronics even in the zone of weak radiation. If it is not turned off at the time of the explosion, then the kayuk - unprotected devices fail immediately.

        Yes, a lamp is more reliable from an electromagnetic pulse in the light of its physics (knocking out electrons; in lamps, the electron fluxes are orders of magnitude higher than the fluxes in digital technology). But even on lamp technology, there were protection keys that turned off the main components of the systems with strong ionization.
        But the lamp technique is more inert. Such systems are also on digital technology, which work much faster.
        And if we take into account that the maximum radius of damage to unprotected sensitive electrical equipment with an electromagnetic pulse is 34km (an explosion with 0,5-1 Mt power), that the lamps are more complicated and require orders of magnitude greater power supply - using the numbers is more than justified.
