Russia’s Radio-Electronic Technologies Group (KRET), part of state-owned Rostec, will provide latest avionics suite for the country’s newest fighter, “Checkmate.”
The latest onboard avionics suite developed by the Ramenki Instrument-Making Design Bureau (part of KRET) includes an advanced large-format head-up display, a panoramic airborne display, and a multi-functional display panel.
“The devices are on par with the U.S. F-35 multirole fighter’s avionics suite and even outshine it by some parameters,” Vladimir Mikheyev told TASS during the MAKS-2021 international air show.
All the information necessary for the pilot will be projected on a panoramic display with a touch screen and a head-up display.
"These instruments are used as the basis for developing and testing items for the latest domestic Su-57 and MiG-35D combat planes and prototypes for the Checkmate light tactical fighter that was unveiled at the MAKS-2021 air show," he added.
The advanced large-format head-up display projects major piloting data and the data on the air situation to the aircraft’s windshield. "The data on the targets and on missile weapons that are appropriate for utilization in a particular situation are projected on to the windshield," Mikheyev noted.
For its part, the 25-inch panoramic airborne display equipped with a touch screen reflects the complete data on the state of the aircraft’s systems and armaments, the route, and the plane’s position along the flight path. This display has a high resolution, which makes it possible to reflect any high-quality graphic images.
The multi-functional color display panel equipped with a touch screen is designed to project information and enter any required command data into the onboard radio-electronic equipment.
