    MiG interceptors air cover naval group in major military exercise

    Despite difficult weather conditions, they successfully simulated air fights and also fired missiles at sea targets

    VLADIVOSTOK, September 22. /ITAR-TASS/. In a large-scale military exercise conde-named Vostok 2014 (East 2014), Russian MiG-31 fighter-interceptor aircraft air covered on Monday a Pacific Fleet’s naval group, Defense Ministry sources told ITAR-TASS.
    Crews of four Mig-31 aircraft took off from Yelizovo airfield in Kamchatka’s regional centre of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, heading for the Pacific to air cover warships in an imaginary evasive action.
    Despite difficult weather conditions, they successfully simulated air fights and also fired missiles at sea targets.
    The planes covered more than 2,000 kilometers and spent about three hours in flight.
    A strategic command and staff exercise code-named Vostok 2014 (East 2014) with about 100,000 troops participating began in the Eastern Military District on September 19.
    The manouevres involve units that participated in a snap combat readiness check in the Eastern Military District on September 11-18 when the troops were put on full combat alert, airlifted, and redeployed by rail and sea. Tactical and cruise land-, sea-and air-launched missiles will be fired during the manoeuvres taking place at more than 20 training ranges from Anadyr in the north to Vladivostok in the south.
    The troops practice skills to defend the coast and islands in Sakhalin, Kamchatka, Chukotka, and the southern part of the Primorsky Territory.
    The exercises will end on September 25. They are the final stage of a series of command and staff, and special exercises, drills, and surprise inspections in 2014.

    Don't know why they would be cooperating with a Canadian company considering how anti Russian the Canadian government seems to be...

    Just looks like an ordinary light twin engine aircraft to me.

    Doesn't seem like Russian's are learning much lessons.  Maybe they are ignorant or maybe just hoping that they won't get affected by these sanctions business.  But yeah, if I was running a Russian business, the last place I would be looking for JV work would be Canada, US or most of EU.  I would be instead looking at Asia, european countries like Serbia, or Brazil for jv.

    The 16-seat Rysachok aircraft to perform its maiden flight in the first quarter of 2015
    Russian Aviaton » Thursday October 9, 2014 15:30 MSK

    The maiden flight of 16-seat light multi-role Rysachok aircraft is scheduled for the first quarter of 2015, Interfax reports with reference to a source close to the military-industrial sector.

    "At present five Rysachok aircraft are under construction: three of them will feature a 16-seat configuration and the rest two ones – 10-seat configuration. The first 16-seat liner will perform its maiden flight in the first quarter of 2015", - the source said.

    According to him, at first the aircraft will undergo flight development tests and then the certification testing will be started. "Almost all the results of certification tests passed by the 10-seat version of the aircraft will be recognized for testing of 16-seat version as well", - the source added.

    Commenting the information that Russian Ministry of Defense issued a performance specification for the aircraft in spring, he said: "The Ministry did issue the performance specification and now it is being considered by the enterprise, because it will have to use own funds for development of this vehicle. The ministry is not going to finance the project".

    It was reported earlier the Rysachok may be operated from unpaved runways with a soil strength of about 5,5 kg/sq.cm. Russian air forces plan to use Rysachok as a reconnaissance and patrol aircraft. The airliner is powered by М601F engines (Н80 for production vehicles) having a power of 750 (770) h.p. It is able to carry up to 10 passengers (production version will be fitted with 16 seats). Its range is 2000 km; cruise speed varies from 250 to 400 km/h.

    Russian-Chinese heavy helicopter will have take-off weight of 38 tons - Rogozin

    Russia and China have reached an agreement in principle on a joint project to create a heavy transport helicopter, said Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin.

    "For heavy helicopters moving normally. Treaty to the helicopter on 38 tons," - said to "Interfax-AVN" Rogozin.

    According to him, it was decided that "Russia's contribution to the project will be material, our technical capabilities."

    Previously CEO of the holding company "Helicopters of Russia" Alexander Mikheyev said "Interfax-AVN" that technical configuration of the Russian-Chinese heavy helicopter will be determined before the end of the year.

    "Hopefully, this year we define the technical configuration of the helicopter and the status of the project," - said A.Miheev.

    According to him, the Russian-Chinese heavy helicopter is planned to create on the basis of the technological platform of the heaviest in the world of the Mi-26, produced by "Rostvertol" (part of the holding company "Helicopters of Russia").

    He noted that the new car will not be analogue or further development of Russian heavy Mi-26 helicopter. "This helicopter will be developed specifically for the Chinese market, to perform the missions that are formulated by various ministries and agencies in China. Primarily the Ministry of Emergency Situations," - said A.Miheev.

    Russia starts the development of all-composite sixth-generation fighter

    Russian scientists have already started development of sixth-generation fighter made of composites, CEO of Advanced Research Foundation, Andrei Grigoriev, said at Open Innovations Forum, RIA Novosti reports.

    The testing of fifth-generation fighter is in progress in Russia; the deliveries of these vehicles to armed forces will be started in 2016. PAK FA (or T-50) is the Russian fifth-generation fighter fitted with brand new avionics suite and state-of-the-art radar with phased antenna array. The main contractor of the project is Sukhoi Holding Company (part of United Aircraft Corporation). Compared to fighters already operated by the air forces, T-50 has a number of unique features combining the functions of attack aircraft and fighter.

    "Our goal is to create a technological advance for development of the sixth-generation fighter. Such projects are being considered. First of all, the projects are related to materials and engines. There is an interesting joint project with Design Bureau named after A.M. Lyulka for development of engines with a unique performance; it is being considered at the moment", — Grigoriev told the journalists.

    Moreover, the foundation is considering projects for development of composites for the advanced fighter and may choose one project in the near-term. "First of all this refers to monitoring the condition of the material. This is a key factor for the composites", — he added.

    Experts told RIA Novosti earlier that the leading EU countries would not develop fifth-generation fighters; they will move straight to the sixth-generation UAVs.

    The Advanced Research Foundation was established in 2012. Its main goal is to support the scientific research in order to strengthen the defense capabilities of our country.

    Interesting...

    KRET will create a new generation of avionics systems on the basis of radio-photoniks

    November 11, AEX.ru - Concern "Radio-electronic technology" (KRET) Rostec State Corporation and the Foundation for Advanced Studies (DRF) signed an agreement on the implementation of promising scientific and technological project "Development of an active phased array based radiofotoniki" ("ROFAR"). The project includes the creation of a new specialized laboratory and the development of universal technology, which will be the basis for radar and electronic warfare systems of the new generation. Investment in the project will amount to 680 million rubles, the press service of KRET.

    ....

    "Nanophotonics - a promising research area, which soon will define the vector of development of dual-use technology in the developed world - said General Director Nikolai Kolesov KRET. - Latest technology will allow us to create effective 2020 and advanced receiver-transmitters, radar systems, electronic intelligence and electronic countermeasures, which will replace the existing line. "    

    ....

    "One of the main" ROFAR "will be the development and manufacture of a new generation of AESA, in which the basic elements must be created using the principles radifotoniki. They will reduce the weight of the equipment 1.5-3 times increase in 2-3 times its reliability and efficiency, as well as dozens of times to increase the scanning speed and resolution. If successful, the technology will open up new possibilities for improving the characteristics of a "smart skin" used on Russian helicopters and aircraft of the latest generation. The system internals ROFAR over the entire area of ​​the fuselage of the aircraft ( Sun) will allow its crew to receive at any time a coherent radar picture within a radius of 360 degrees, provide job antenna systems in a mode of active and passive radar, posing all kinds of interference and immunity covert data transmission connection to the land and other aircraft, and state identification etc. "- told in KRET.
