From the side of bmpd,
we recall that the Voronezh edition of the newspaper Kommersant in July 2018 reported that the Voronezh concern Sozvezdiye would start supplying the ESU TK to the Ministry of Defense of Russia from 2019.
The Voronezh concern Sozvezdie (owned by the Roselectronica holding of the Rostec state corporation) in 2019 will begin supplying the Russian Defense Ministry with a single tactical link management system (ESU TZ), taking on the role of a linking aggregator, the concern group Alexey Bocharov said in an interview with TASS. “We are starting from 2019 to large-scale deliveries of the system (ESU TZ. -“ Kommersant-Chernozemye ”). We are launching production this year. If earlier deliveries of various types of machinery and equipment were carried out separately by different factories, now the Sozvezdie concern has assumed a single connecting role. That is, we supply turnkey the entire range of technical solutions, including their service for ten years, ”said Mr. Bocharov to the agency. He noted that during the execution of the contract, at least ten units of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation would be equipped with new equipment.
Recall, "Constellation" is the development of ESU TK since 2001. The complex is designed to control troops using navigation, satellite and unmanned means of observation. In 2007, the basic set of ESU TZ was transferred for testing, but in 2010, following the results of the command-staff exercises, military experts made over a hundred comments to the system developers. Now, according to the military, a number of control subsystems are again in pilot operation in the troops. Until 2020, 40 brigade sets of the ESU TZ for a total amount of over 300 billion rubles should come to the troops. At the end of 2017, Sergei Shoigu stated that the capabilities of the ESU TZ "were brought up to the requirements set by the Ministry of Defense".
