Russian United Aircraft Corporation has started flight tests of a new next-generation integrated avionics suite of T-50 (PAK-FA) fighter aircraft.
The integrated structure of the board of the aircraft T-50 equipment replaces the system ‘Baguette’ designed in 2004. The new ‘integrated modular avionics’ (IMA) combat system will solve the problem of automatic detection and identification of the most dangerous targets, the construction of the optimal route, the optimal solution of tasks using weapons and defense aircraft, as well as the reconfiguration of systems in case of failure in real time, according to the UAC blog post last week.
The IMA aircraft systems control functions are assigned to a central computer that can control the use of weapons, defense, and intellectual support multimode pilot. The central computer simultaneously performs the role of an e-pilot, and electronic navigator and electronic flight engineer.
The volume of its onboard software already exceeded 4 million lines of code, and is still further to implement a set of complex functional aircraft control modes and complex information processing.
Data exchange is performed via fiber optic channels. The transition from copper to fiber allowed at times to increase the speed and volume of data transmission in order to reduce the weight of the cable when the network quality and enhance its noise immunity. If the transmission of the traditional copper cable provides data rate of the order of 10-100 Mbit / s, then the fiber is almost 1000 times more - 8 Gb / s.
Network structure of the complex increases the reliability of operation of all devices - when any failure occurs calculator automatic switching systems on the other block, and the use of centralized processor giving almost halve the weight of the unit.
FDC performance increased more than tenfold, failure safety has increased more than fourfold. For the first time in Russian history the head role in the performance of the overall platform design and development played Samoletnaya firm.
“Multi-core gives us almost unlimited possibilities for the design of fault-tolerant configurations, while saving on weight, power consumption and cost of the equipment,” says Dmitry Gribov, chief designer for Sukhoi and the director of the Directorate of the CCD integration.
Russia is testing stand-alone elements of its sixth-generation fighter on fifth generation PAK-FA fighter jets. Concern Radio-Electronic Technologies (KRET) is currently working on electronic warfare systems for the sixth-generation warplane
Russian fifth generation fighter aircraft, PAK-FA is set to complete government tests in 2016 and will start regular production in 2017. “The eleventh T-50 aircraft is on berth and is 60-70 per cent ready
Russia will equip its fifth generation fighter PAK-FA with an advanced Radio-Optical Phased Array Radar (ROFAR). KRET will be developing the new electronic systems for the aircraft, deputy general director of concern Radio-Electronic Technology (KRET) Vladimir Mikheev was quoted as saying by Sputnik news daily Wednesday
Russia has offered to slash price of its new Sukhoi T-50 (PAK-FA)s technological know-how under the fifth generation fighter aircraft (FGFA) from $6 billion to $3.7 billion to India
Russian fifth-generation PAK-FA (Prospective Airborne Complex of Frontline Aviation) fighter jet has completed flight tests. "Several planes are now primarily testing airborne avionics
Russian government certification tests of the communication systems for the fifth generation fighter jet Sukhoi-57 will be over by year end. "S-111 provides radio telephone communication and encrypted data exchange among various aircraft and also command centers (ground and sea-based and airborne)
Russias T-50 (PAK FA) fifth-generation stealth fighter jet has received the serial index designation of 'Su-57' from the Russian Aerospace Forces, its Commander-in-Chief Colonel General Viktor Bondarev said. The nomenclacure change indicates that the development phase is nearing completion and that the aircraft is soon to enter serial production
The fifth generation PAK FA (Perspective Airborne Complex of Frontline Aviation) fighter jet (T-50), completed the first stage of the state trials. "Today is an historic event - a preliminary conclusion has been signed at the MAKS airshow on the state joint trials of the first stage of the T-50 aircraft prototype
Russian Sukhoi aircraft company will produce two more prototypes of PAK FA (T-50) fighters this year. "The work on PAK FA is now at the final stage, and this year we receive the 10th and the 11th planes, which will be tested, and in the future state armament program for 2018-2025 we plan first purchases of T-50 fighters," Russias Defense Minister Yuri Borisov was quoted as saying by Tass during a visit to the Gagarin aircraft plant in Komsomolsk-om-Amur Monday
Russia has plans to deploy unified missiles for Poliment-Redut shipborne air defense systems and land-based S-350 Vityaz air defense mid-range systems. Poliment-Redut is derived from the land-based Vityaz air defense system, which uses the 9M96 medium-range air defense missile,
