Testing for War

WHAT’S NEW IN the world of RAF attack aircraft? Squadrons may claim that their aircraft are to the latest operational standards, but by the time that a new piece of kit is fitted to a Tornado or Harrier it will be well familiar at Boscombe Down. Famous as the base of the MoD PE’s Aircraft & Armament Evaluation Establishment’, this Wiltshire aerodrome is also host to an RAF unit dedicated more to operational development than test flying and aircraft handling. The Central Tactics & Trials Organisation (CTTO) reports to HQ Strike Command at High Wycombe and directly controls its own

First Upgraded Il-20 Completes Flight Testing

ILYUSHIN DIRECTOR-General Viktor Livanov announced on July 20 that flight-testing of the first upgraded Ilyushin Il-20 Coot-A electronic intelligence aircraft is complete.

He said the aircraft carries «new, more advanced radio-electronic equipment», but declined to provide details of the new equipment fit. Original equipment included a 26ft (7.9m)-long Igla-1 sideways-looking airborne radar pod under the forward fuselage, plus two A-87P panoramic cameras in the forward section and antennas for the Romb ELINT system in the rear of lateral fairings on the front fuselage. A series of large and small antennae under the fuselage are for the Kvadrat ELINT system —

Diagnosis of cable lines: at the gates of a new era

Today in Russia there is no practice of continuous diagnosis of the condition of high-voltage cable systems. The legal framework governing the status of the scan isolation requires cable lines only periodic tests that require the withdrawal from service of KL, do not address the issues of prevention of electrical defects, and are potentially dangerous (because they are destructive). Community experts are increasingly discussing the possibility of implementing an effective centralized system of diagnostics of electrical equipment that will solve a range of problems, from energy security to a significant reduction in material costs for maintenance and repair of

«Dry» continues to test SU-35C

Company «Sukhoi» continues municipal acceptance tests of advanced Su-35 fighters. The plane has already made more than 650 flights under test. In the Air Force goes further 6 Su-35until the end of the year. «Mechanical properties of the aircraft and its military capabilities, in general, the corresponding required specification,» the company said. Su-35, kitted out with 2 117S engines with thrust vector control, connects inside the highest excellent maneuverability and the ability to conduct interaction with multiple air targets at once, using both managed and unmanaged missiles and various weapons systems. Plane positioned as a fighter of «4 +

New naval radar «Sharp Eye» successfully tested during the demonstration program perspective unobtrusive USS «Stiletto»

WASHINGTON, June 25. (ARMS-TASS). Brand new ship radar company «Kelvin Hughes» (Kelvin Hughes) successfully tested during the demonstration applets promising unobtrusive USS «Stiletto» (Stiletto). Navy ship continue to assess demonstrator with low telltale signs «Stiletto», which not so long ago participated in the demo tests Combat Command Expeditionary Force U.S. Navy NECC (Navy Expeditionary Combat Command) in Virginia. In these tests of a ship used solid-state radar «Sharp Eye» (SharpEye), developed by «Kelvin Hughes.» As the military experts, demonstrating the ability of the new ship «Stiletto» allows industry to receive valuable information on the results of tests of new technologies

Until the end of the Su-35s will be tested for combat use

New development of Russian aviation gunsmiths — functional fighter Su-35S is preparing to undergo tests on the application of aircraft weapons stationed on its board.According to the plan creators fighter tests should be carried out in the current start in 2012. Given that the design of functional fighter


allows you to have on board a wide range of existing, as well as promising aircraft weapons tests in their operational use will be conducted after the municipal and joint tests. At the same time this will be done upon receipt of combat weapons for flight tests. It should be

Express MD2 tested

This is the second small satellite communications. The first was launched February 11, 2009.

The spacecraft "Express-MD2" created by Khrunichev Khrunichev has successfully passed acoustic testing at the Central Aero-Hydrodynamic Institute named after Professor NE Zhukovsky (TsAGI, Zhukovsky).

In the reverberation chamber RK-1500 spacecraft tested the effect of high-frequency pressure fluctuations that occur during startup, transonic flight at maximum speed pressure.

Upon completion of acoustic testing, "Express-MD2" was delivered to the factory for testing in early April for electromagnetic compatibility in an anechoic chamber.

Satellite "Express-MD2" is created in the framework of the

«Leaves» — a unique machine clearance was tested at the site under Chyrvonaarmeiski

Unique remote machine clearance (WIT) «Leaves» has passed tests at the site under Chyrvonaarmeiski Metropolitan area. Development of new defense radar found mine, and then using microwave radiation neutralizes them, told RIA Novosti.   WIT «Foliage» refers to a technique that is currently generally called «working on new physical principles» — On an armored car unit installed microwave radiation (microwave). Previously, this technology is not used for the elimination of explosive devices from a distance.   «During the test, you can follow that no ammo does not work, it says on the effects of microwave installation — electrical impulse burned

Results of centralized testing

So makarom, specifically on the amount of points scored in the tests, which is counted more GPA certificate depends passing grade in schools. Now director of the National Institute for the Control of knowledge Nikolai Feskov told about the results of centralized testing.The main distinguishing feature of today’s test was that virtually all subjects after the exam was lowered the threshold from which assessment on the subject is considered positive. Ministry of Education in the midst of testing lowered the threshold arithmetic and physics to 8 points, and by Belarusian Russian languages — to 13, in chemistry, foreign languages, the
