Russia’s United Instrument Manufacturing Corporation (UIMC) has offered to upgrade the communications systems modules of the Su-30MKI fighters.
A press release from Rostec, the parent company of UIMC said that presentations will be made to the Indian air force and Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) during the Aero India show in Bangalore. “The sides will discuss the possibility of upgrading the communication equipment of the Su-30MKI Indian fighter jets and outfitting potential Russian-Indian aircraft such as the FGFA fighter jet and the MTA transport aircraft .”
“Our Asian partners immediately expressed interest in several models of Russian technology,” said Sergey Skokov, Deputy CEO of UIMC. “First of all, we have one of our latest developments for export, the S-112 aviation communication system, which provides a new level of data transmission efficiency. In addition, we are presenting in India the NKVS-27 system for multi-voice communication and information exchange between command posts and tactical aircraft.” In addition, the AT-E aviation information exchange terminal will be displayed.
The NKVS-27 system can be used for communication between aircraft command points and the Su-30MKI fighter jet, the Ka-31 helicopter, and the FGFA and MTA airplanes.
The S-404 communication system features an integrated antenna system designed for the Ka-62 helicopter and other types of civilian aircraft. In comparison with similar products, the system has improved quality and range of communication.
The system adheres to all international standards regarding radio communication equipment, including signal reception for selective calls. Its military modification provides anti-jamming protection and encryption of data and voice information on both the hardware and software levels.
The AT-E aviation information exchange terminal utilizes information exchange network technology, and its characteristics correspond with all similar products (such as JTIDS/MIDS system terminals) utilized by the armies of both the USA and NATO.
