The Russian Federation will be the first of the 34 countries of the Parties to the Open Skies Treaty (DON), which will begin to use digital equipment during observational overflights of the territories of foreign countries, the press service reported. Ministry of Defence.

Russia will be the first to use digital cameras within the framework of the Open Skies Treaty


"Experts from the 22 States Parties to the Treaty confirmed the full compliance of the digital surveillance system of domestic production with the requirements and limitations of the Open Skies Treaty," the office of the head of the National Center for Reducing Nuclear Hazard Sergey Ryzhkov quotes the agency.

According to him, “now Russia is the first of the 34 States parties to the Treaty when performing observation flights can use digital video cameras, several years ahead of such technologically advanced states like the USA, Canada, Great Britain, France, Italy, which still use analog equipment ".

“International certification took place from 19 to 28 June at Kubinka and Maikop airfields. An 64 expert from the 22 States Parties to the Open Skies Treaty arrived in Russia to participate in the event. Foreign inspectors performed ground tests of the observation aircraft equipment, conducted test checks of optical cameras, and also familiarized themselves with the procedures for processing information obtained during flight tests, ”the release said.

For example, “at the Kubinka airfield, the height of the use of the near-infrared sensor on the An-30 B aircraft was checked and clarified, and international experts carried out test tests of cameras installed on the Tu-154 Лк-1 aircraft”.

As Klaus Bernander, Head of the Open Skies Department of the Kingdom of Sweden’s Verification Center, noted, “it was a really good trip, and this is success for Russia.”

“To ensure that the Russian surveillance equipment complies with the requirements of the Treaty, foreign specialists were able to handle the processing station of the Kubinka airfield. Here, after filling in statistical tables, with the help of a special program, inspectors confirmed the minimum height of application and were satisfied with the result of the resolution of the cameras, ”the press service told.

      There is nothing to scan ... Everything has been placed near our borders for a long time! Well, as the saying goes, "The armor is strong and our tanks are fast ..." Let's break through if anything! (While the missiles are flying.)

        I do not like it when foreign inspectors praise us, but it’s nice for our specialists.

    And from some of them we still hear: "Lapotnaya Russia" and "only the West can help us."

      They can "paw" about bastard Russia as much as they like. This is so complacency. In fact, they perfectly understand "xy from xy"!

    Yes, it's certainly great that we have the best equipment! Yes, that's just not heard that someone allowed us to fly on their territory under a contract. Agreements for "partners" are nothing. The gentleman gave his word. the gentleman took the floor. Democracy fuck you!

    And who will tell me what is the general sense of this "open sky" program, if the equipment must meet certain requirements, and the "partners" must check it. That is, "you can see what we will allow you to see, and if the systems allow you to see what we do not want to show you, then do not .. do not ... do not ..."

      Well, Russia does not show everything either, which is logical. Eh! If we could make such a camouflage, through which and from where you do not look, the "partners" would see only a large bolt with a multidirectional thread with variable pitch and depth repeat !

    Gaspada patriots. You are always being fooled by noodles that are hung on your ears.
    Why are these countries not equipped with modern equipment? Because in the "Open Skies" agreement in article 4, clause 2, the parameters of the equipment installed on the aircraft are specifically described:

    (A) in the case of optical panoramic and frame cameras, allowing
    ability on the ground not better than 30 centimeters at minimum height
    above ground
    (B) in the case of video cameras, the resolution on the ground not better
    30 centimeters
    established in accordance with the provisions of Appendix 1
    to Appendix D to this Agreement:
    (C) in the case of infrared linear scanning devices, allowing
    ability on the ground not better than 50 centimeters at minimum height
    above ground
    (D) in the case of synthesized side-view radars
    aperture, resolution on the ground no better than three meters,
    calculated based on the pulse response method,


    Those. digital video cameras installed on the domestic An-30 have such poor characteristics that they fall under the terms of the contract, which was confirmed during certification.

    Well and still, article 9, section 1, clause 1 of the contract:
    1. For the purpose of recording data obtained by monitoring equipment during
    observation flights, the following media are used:
    (A) in the case of optical panoramic and frame cameras, black and white
    camera roll;
    (B) in the case of video cameras, magnetic tape;
    (C) in the case of infrared linear scanning devices, black and white
    film or magnetic tape; and
    (D) in the case of a synthesized side-view radar
    aperture - magnetic tape

    Why on airplanes do not put modern equipment listed countries? Because in the "Open Skies" contract in article 4, clause 2, the parameters of the equipment installed on the aircraft are specifically described:

    So friends and wishful thinking, first blurted out, then let down the platform.

    An agreement the maximum resolution is provided in 0,5m, and regardless of the flight altitude in the range of agreed echelons (i.e. 500 - 10 000m). digital systems are much cheaper. Once configured, auto zoom in 0.5 checked, sealed. But this does not mean we have no cameras with a higher resolution.
    As for NATO, they only do not use them in this program, but mostly film because for someone who says that grain on it will not allow for a greater resolution - who prevents it from charging the batch that we want.

    The Americans looked at our digital equipment, breathed a sigh of relief and said: "Well, you can follow us with this equipment as much as you like, from any height and at any time, no problem!" If I were ours, I would think - maybe something is wrong with this equipment? Otherwise, the Americans would have died with bones, but they did not give permission.
