The new aircraft landing system "blind" will combat vehicles to avoid collision with the ground in the fog.
Satellite radio set (SRNC), developed for naval aviation, ready for the state tests. It is designed to FSUE "Flight Research Center" (PIC), which is located in Zhukovsky near Moscow.
According to "News" in the Defense Ministry, the complex will be tested in the near future.
— With a favorable result of the first test this system will receive carrier-based fighters Su-33 on an aircraft carrier "Admiral Kuznetsov". That is, the 279th Fighter Regiment ship — said the source.
JNRFC is a new type of navigation system, which is to replace the existing inertial (when the computer calculates the coordinates of the aircraft after take-off from the movements) and satellite system.
The complex is used so-called relative mode satellite navigation (GLONASS and GPS), where the signals from orbit takes not one, but two planes, which are then on-line coordinates are exchanged with each other.
Double-precision positioning gives the coordinates within 10 cm Therefore, the pilot can "blind" lead plane to land up to touch the strip.
One of the pilots who participated in the state tests for civil aviation, told "Izvestia" that the coordinates of the aircraft is updated several times a second.
— It is possible to make a visual mark on the instrument panel or the display of flight conditions. With it, you can even fly blindly. The main thing — to withstand the flight parameters to keep the brand in the right position, and the aircraft touches the strip where you need it — described a method of using pilot JNRFC.
He added that he personally carried out the tests on take-off, landing and taxiing with a fully enclosed cab with no visual contact with the ground. Total aircraft with JNRFC made several thousands of successful takeoffs and landings.
— JNRFC good by the fact that all the information from the instruments are displayed on one display and the pilot does not have to allocate attention between the attitude indicator, speed indicator and the engine capacity — continued the source.
According to "News" in the Main Command of the Navy, the Navy JNRFC tests were carried out on a flying laboratory based on the Su-30. The aircraft continued working out bezvizualny approach and landing on the deck aircraft carrier "Admiral Kuznetsov".
— All flights were successful. The pilots reported that the problems with the development was not only required to keep a visual mark on the display of flight conditions and control the speed and height — told "Izvestia" officer main command of the Navy.
According to him, JNRFC can land the plane on the deck at all too experienced pilot. Dimensions of the device is also suitable for a variety of aircraft — a small candy bar with built-in satellite and pay-computing system is easy to fit in the single-seat fighter Su-33 and tanker aircraft IL-78.
Military expert, co-author of the book "The New Russian Army" Anton Lavrov believes that with the help of JNRFC Russian deck-based aircraft could be all-weather.
— Now landing on the deck of an aircraft carrier is very complex, the account goes by the meter or even centimeters. The new navigation system allows the Su-33, even in bad weather or at night to carry out combat missions. Now they have that opportunity, but it is the norm for the world of naval aviation — said Lavrov to "Izvestia".
JNRFC originally created for long-distance flights of fighters and tankers. Russian Defense Ministry did not initially expressed interest in the project PIC, so the work had to be organized in the framework of the federal target program "Development of civil aviation." JNRFC finalized and did not just navigation, but also planting. After that, the application of distributed systems and naval aviation Navy.
