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. "Standalone solutions that will be applied in the sixth-generation fighter are now being tested on the fifth-generation jet as well as on the ground-based equipment. Separate elements of the flight and navigation system have already been installed on PAK FA", Vladimir Mikheyev, advisor to the First Deputy Director General, KRET was quoted as saying by Tass in an interview Monday.
According to him, the sixth-generation fighters will be fitted with a unified electronic warfare system, which will serve as radar, an electronic warfare system, a data transmission system and as communications equipment. Additionally, it will function as a navigation system and as an IFF transponder.
"The PAK FA radar station should operate both as a locator and reconnaissance system, and the electronic warfare system for its part should engage in radio detection and location. That is, integration and redistribution of functions on the PAK FA is already happening," the KRET representative said.
According to him, the use of integrated avionics is tested on many aircraft. As an example, he cited the US fifth-generation fighter, the F-35.
Back in early March reports stated that work on the sixth-generation fighter aircraft had begun, with the fighter’s manned and unmanned versions under development. The fighter prototype is expected to perform its maiden flight prior to 2025.
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 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)
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
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
Russian VP Makeyev State Rocket Center has begun development of a new ballistic missile aiming to overcome the US missile defense systems. It is no coincidence if the information about it appeared after the NATO - Russia Council and the Summit in Warsaw
