Instrument Design Bureau ("CPP", Tula) has developed and tested a multi-missile system "Kornet-EM" with a number of new features. Advanced and relatively low-cost technical solutions provided an opportunity to engage ground armor and low-flying air targets with a high probability. The operator of the process of the missile guidance to the target is eliminated. This was "Rosinformbyuro" said Dmitry Konoplyev, Managing Director of "PCU."

The complex "Kornet-EM" the principle of machine vision and automatic target tracking. He allowed implement the principle of "fire — forget" 5 times to increase the accuracy of target tracking, hit the helicopters and drones on delnostyah to 10 km. At the same time, according to Konopleva, its "efficiency could reach 99.99%." At present, the Ministry of Defense is considering the use of complex "Kornet-EM" crawler-type vehicle, and is portable.
General Director of "High-complexes"Alexander Denisovannounced the completion of the tests of the new "Cornet" with a specialized machine intelligence and targeting. Tested version of a joint military operation with anti-aircraft complex"Armour-C1", which many viewed abroad.
In a new complex there is an old control system with laser-guided missile, which ensures high accuracy of hitting the target. As noted Konoplyev, "change management system, in this case does not make sense." In comparison with ATRA"Javelin"complex "Kornet-EM" has a significantly higher rate of "cost — effectiveness." Explaining that "Javelin" is worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, and "Cornet" tens, he wondered, "why hitting expensive means of cheap drones? ‘.
Complex "Kornet-EM" is designed to defeat armored ground and low-flying air targets in terms of their visual sight. Block-modular design allows you to place complex on any database and use it as a portable. "Kornet-EM" on the chassis of armored car "Tiger" will be presented in the exhibition by the PCU arms exhibition in Nizhny Tagil. The complex provides simultaneous firing two goals of these types in the range of distances from 150 to 10,000 m Warhead weight of TNT — 7 kg, armor-piercing shaped-charge warhead — 1100-1300 mm. The transfer to the firing position — no more than 7 seconds. Control system — automatic with body-orientation in a laser beam, noise immunity — is high.
