In 2013 in the Strategic Missile Forces (SMF) to continue the active implementation of the troops links automated command and control system (ASBU) 4th generation, which, in addition to solving the traditional problems in bringing orders, collection of reports and monitoring readiness launchers, provides automated application of a change of plans and operational retargeting missiles. Tracts of bringing orders and collect reports of this system formed wire, radio and satellite communication channels and have the necessary durability and noise immunity. This provides the finishing orders directly to the command and control of launchers, bypassing the intermediate links, including in nuclear effects and jamming.
In each set of equipment that is created by using the new domestic element base, provide triple redundancy systems and data, and troubleshoot the hardware is localized to within a model element to be replaced.
Promising basis for building links ASBU is a functional set of standardized technical means to ensure high reliability and security of information transmission. However, they have properties such as compactness, low energopotreblyaemost, stealth communication, resilience and reliability of the operation.
Further improvement ASBU due primarily to the improvement of management systems of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation as a whole, as well as the need to control nuclear missiles of the new generation.
Implementation of these measures will enhance the effectiveness of the Strategic Rocket Forces command and control and to reach a new, higher level of quality control of troops and weapons.
Created in the framework of advanced automated system of the Armed Forces of the Russian Strategic Missile Forces ASBU, along with providing a centralized command and control, will organize an information paired with those of other branches of the Armed Forces and the armed forces, which will allow military control bodies Strategic Missile Forces receive the necessary information to aid decision making for the organization actions of subordinate troops
