Produced the first radar with AESA for the PAK FA
Scientific Research Institute of Instrument name V.V.Tihomirova designed and built the first four standard radar with an active phased array (AESA), which in the course of flight tests on the fighter 5th generation fully confirms the claimed properties, said CEO Institute Yuri whitewashed .
«At the present day has been done four full reference AFAR. One is on the board constantly acting general designer in NIIP Tikhomirov, the second — on the board of the company «Sukhoi», third — on the 3rd flying swatch promising aviation complex tactical aircraft (PAK FA) and has already started flight testing » — Yu.Belosnezhny said at the ongoing Berlin Air Show «ILA 2012».
According to him, in the first flight, virtually all claims made by the latest radar AFAR were proved: and in the «air-air» and in the «air-surface». Yu.Belosnezhny said fourth reference radar AFAR put to Komsomolsk-on-Amur Aircraft Production Association. «He is currently installed on the fourth plane, which should move in Gromov Flight Research Institute and connect to flight tests.
So programm goes on. In practice, according to the schedule agreed with the company «Sukhoi» — said the agency interlocutor.
With all this, he noted that there is, of course, some difficulties, but they are all associated with component base. «While it is still buggy, reliability longs to be better. Because our labor-intensive because of this very very increases «- said A.Belosnezhny.
Yet, according to him, soon managed to achieve certain success. «Progress will take. AFAR decreased cost two and a half times, increased reliability. We believe that the following standards will go with the least and more than straining with measured traits. To launch mass production
PAK FAradar with an active phased array is absolutely perfected «- said Yu.Belosnezhny.
He noted that subsequently created based fighter for the fifth-generation radar AFAR plan to create several new modifications that will be applied to other military aviation technology.
«Just as the passive phased array, line AFAR will develop. Of scalability will be new versions of «- said A.Belosnezhny.
As an example, he cited locator «Irbis», which is set to a functional Su-35 fighter. «Today, it is necessary for land applications, we apply it to the instrumental part of FAR. At the moment, decided to set this on the radar far bomber Tu-22M3 strategic bomber and the Tu-160 and its modernization, «- said Yu.Belosnezhny.
According to him, the most important factor that will deter the use of recently AFAR — the price, since this radar is several times more expensive than the locators with slotted and passive bars. «Opportunities in radar AFAR naturally much higher, but we somehow assumed that needs to be done so that the new standard was cheaper than its predecessor, and its properties should be much better. But it does not happen «- said Yu.Belosnezhny.
Earlier it was reported that the developed Instrumentation Research Institute named V.V.Tihomirova radar AFAR allows increment detection range, parallel work in «air-air» and «air-surface», to recognize and organize group and single objects, multiple targets at once to storm high-precision weapons, as connecting and electronic countermeasures.
