The Russian S-500 long-range surface-to-air missile (LR-SAM) system will receive new radio communication systems in the next couple of years.
The plan to induct the anti-aircraft missile system into the Russian Army in 2016 has been moved to 2017. The missile system will receive a completely new radio system, which has no equal in quality and range of data transmission, as well as stealth, Gazeta reported quoting United Instrument Corporation (UIC) as saying earlier this month.
"At the moment the company is developing the next radio communication, the sixth generation to complete various types of military equipment, including anti-aircraft missile systems as already standing on the arms, and promising," the news daily quoted a Russian defense industry representative as saying.
The previous generation radios worked on the pre-set frequencies, increasing the likelihood of tracking and interception of information transmitted, and looking systems such situations will not be possible.
According to him, communication equipment, which today supplies to the troops corporation (eg, radio stations for medium-range air defense missile systems "Buk-M2"), already has a high noise immunity, it includes modes "pseudo-random frequency hopping and working masked communication."
"Stealth in order to conceal what people are saying, what is being transmitted, the type of information exchange and immunity to disturbances so that communications work in all conditions, even when exposed to the enemy, remains secret" Mikhail Khodarenok, an expert in the field of air and missile defense systems was quoted as saying by the news daily.
"No disturbances created by the enemy when the tele-coded information is being transmitted must affect the system's efficiency, because the command centre is in one place, the division in another and the launching pad in a third. But information must be transmitted. There are antennae that stretch out and help establish communication," he said.
Russia will begin pre-tests of its S-500 air defense system prototypes this year. The deliveries of the prototypes of new system will be delivered this year after the tests are carried out,
Russia will soon receive first pre-production prototypes of next-generation S-500 air defense system. The new generation S-500 ‘Prometey also known as 55R6M Triumfator-M, is a surface-to-air defense missile system currently under development by Almaz-Antey, Sputnik reported Sunday
Russias defence exporter, Rosoboronexport has offered to integrate its latest Tor-E2 Surface to air (SAM) system into any existing air defense system including that compatible with NATO standards. The Tor-E2 SAM system has been developed and produced by the Almaz-Antey Air and Space Defense Concern
Russias most advanced S-500 air defense system will shortly be completing trials as some of its elements have already undergone testing. Almaz-Antey Deputy CEO for Foreign Economic Activity Vyacheslav Dzirkaln told during MAKS-2017 international airshow on Thursday, "some elements of the new S-500 antiaircraft missile system have now successfully passed the basic part of trials", TASS reports
Russian next-generation S-500 surface-to-air missile system would be able to engage targets above the earths surface. The new S-500 missile system would be able to engage targets in the upper layer of the atmosphere, 100 kilometers [62 miles] above the Earths surface, Pavel Sozinov, chief engineer of the Russian defense corporation Almaz-Antey, was quoted as saying by
Russia will be gearing up test of next generation S-500 air defense system test by 2020. Russia is currently developing 600 kilometers S-500 Prometey anti-aircraft and anti-ballistic missile system,
