    Here: http://www.ruselectronics.ru/news/?id=2900

    The combined holding company "Russian Electronics" (part of the State Corporation Rostec) developed advanced communication systems for combat vehicles BMD-4M. In particular, the new machine will have a fifth-generation radio equipment, and the inner network, switching and control (ABCK). Appliances provide a new level of reliability and data transmission efficiency.

    As part of the joint "Russian Electronics" production of communication systems leads "Ryazan Radio Plant". Hardware and software system ABCK provides internal communication between crew members, provides an opportunity to get an outside connection through radio stations and satellite radio. Multifunction radio 168-25UE P-2 are designed to open and masked due under sredneperesechennoy areas. Digital radios implement a radio frequency tuning mode, a Noise and have increased resistance to electronic warfare. This equipment can smoothly operate in harsh climatic conditions, can withstand heavy shock and vibration, and also resistant to moisture and sand.

    To ensure the electromagnetic compatibility in confined spaces and placing a dense electronic means within the combat vehicle experts "Ryazansky radiofactory" arrangement was made antennas designed unique sets of cables, protection against interference filters. Type testing of BMD-4M proved that the problem of electromagnetic compatibility has been completely solved, the machine is provided with high-quality and reliable connection to the required range.

    BMD-4M is intended for use in the Airborne troops. Technique enables landing with the crew from an aircraft to overcome water barrier at a speed of 10 km / h, firing on track with target tracking of paired 100 mm and 30 mm automatic cannon.
