Russian company Rostec-owned Central Research Institute of Precision Engineering (TsNIITOCHMASH) has begun mass production of unified systems designed to protect latest military equipment against high-precision weapons.

The product is designed to protect the TOS-2 heavy flamethrower system, the PRP-5 reconnaissance vehicle, as well as the Zavet-D automated artillery control systems, the state-owned company said in a statement.

The complexes include attack warning sensors, control and display equipment, launching devices, and aerosol ammunition. The complex is capable of protecting equipment from high-precision weapons with laser, optical, thermal and radar guidance.

“During an enemy attack, the complex detects the threat and ‘hides’ the equipment behind a curtain of combined interference. Thanks to this, the ammunition loses contact with the target, strays from the attacking course, or continues its flight ‘blindly’ - in the inertial mode without precise aiming at the target. Tests have shown that the complex is capable of protecting equipment during a battle and on the march from anti-tank missiles, as well as from air attacks with high-precision aircraft weapons,” said Bekkhan Ozdoev, industrial director of the cluster of weapons, ammunition and special chemistry at Rostec.

The enterprise has high competencies in the creation of optical-electronic means of protecting weapons and military equipment from high-precision weapons of the enemy. Today the enterprise is already producing serially protection systems for the Iskander operational-tactical missile system, the PRP-4A mobile reconnaissance station and other combat vehicles.
