The ratnik equipment is no news. However my question is is this equipment for the whole infantry or do only special units use it.
And can you post pictures or videos of russian private soldier equipment.
MOSCOW, February 21 (RIA Novosti) – The Russian military will adopt domestically designed “future soldier” gear this summer, the Defense Ministry said Thursday.
The adoption of the Ratnik gear into service has been repeatedly delayed due to uncertainty over the choice of small arms component, which is likely to include the new Kalashnikov AK-12 assault rifle. The equipment is currently in the final stages of field testing by Russian paratroopers.
Ratnik comprises about 50 components, including firearms, body armor and optical, communication and navigation devices, as well as life support and power supply systems.
The equipment can be used by regular infantry, paratroopers, rocket launcher operators, machine gunners, drivers and scouts.
"Warrior" (aka Ratnik) to inform physicians about injury
Special sensors equipped soldiers will transmit information military medics
"Warrior" inform physicians about injury
In Russia, the final stage of military equipment gosispytany "Warrior" . To develop a new generation of equipment registration system physiological state fighters. Special sensors providing information to military doctors.
Over the next two years, the St. Petersburg Military Medical Academy, Kirov (VMA) will modernize the experimental base, write "Izvestia" . Goal - the development of a monitoring system of military life and "determination of physiological parameters to assess the severity of the affected states on the site of injury."
The creators of "Warrior" (Central Research Institute of Precision Engineering of the State Corporation "Rosteh") confirmed the "Izvestia" that development to monitor the status of the organism is already underway. After adopting a "Warrior" in the next version will include equipment monitoring pulse.
Upgraded "Warrior" will include wearable sensors that every minute will remove parameters heart rate, respiratory rate, blood oxygen saturation indicators, microvascular blood supply. Electronics equipment will store and analyze these figures, the deviation from the norm complex will give an alarm in the medical service. This will draw on already developed system of intelligence, control and communication "Sagittarius". All settings are automatically stored on the flash drive for record keeping.
Soldiers medical mouth will have indicators showing the status of the victims. Depending on the injured soldier is invited to assess the state of the indices from 0 to 5. Medrota based on the data obtained will be to prioritize the evacuation of the wounded and the coordinates to identify possible ways to approach them.
Outfit "Warrior" includes armor protection, navigation GLONASS-GPS, control system "Sagittarius", the communicator, with automatic night vision and thermal. Helmet this equipment is able to withstand getting pistol bullet from a distance of 10 m, and is equipped with a thermal video module for sniping. In "Warrior" also includes food, water filters, medical supplies, tent and sleeping bag. Weight full equipment up to 20 kg.
"Warrior" was first introduced in 2011, the summer of 2014 equipment is planned to adopt. In this year's state defense order planned supply tens of thousands of sets of combat equipment for ground troops, airborne troops and marines Navy.
Soldier equipment "Warrior" produced at the enterprise "TSNIITOCHMASH" included in Rosteh. The company was created in 1944. The main activities of the organization - development and manufacture of small arms and ammunition, military equipment, artillery systems, optoelectronic devices, sporting and hunting ammunition, sealed containers for transport and storage, simulators firearms.
I was wondering when they were gonna try this, it's a good idea for friendly fire and all, but the problem lies in the fact that personnel IFF would more susceptible to being compromised then the IFF of ships, tanks and aircraft, so i am very curious to how there going to resolve this issue.Viktor wrote:Nice
"Friend or foe" for personnel

I don't thinks thats the type of IFF there talking about, nor do i believe blinking low spectrum IR light qualifies as a proper IFF, from what there describing in the article, the IFF method would be more similar to that of aircraft, basically identifying themselves as friendly to the HUDs of nearby friendlies, and updating there position on a digital map in command vehicles/bases.Werewolf wrote:AlfaT8 wrote:I was wondering when they were gonna try this, it's a good idea for friendly fire and all, but the problem lies in the fact that personnel IFF would more susceptible to being compromised then the IFF of ships, tanks and aircraft, so i am very curious to how there going to resolve this issue.Viktor wrote:Nice

The funny, well macabre better to say, thing about IFF when it was used in Iraqi "Freedom" by US soldiers they fired upon own troops with IFF sensors because at night it looked like muzzle flash of gun fire, and since there was nearby gunfire from Iraqi troops they confused the sides and fired upon own troops.
The IFF sensors for troops the US used is a device on their uniform that creates a blinking signal in IR spectrum which can only be seen with Thermal sights or Night Vision sights that cover IR spectrum to a low level. I hope that they have changed it to a better system.
On that note: Does the new Russian kit include HUDs??
