    S-300/400/500 News [Russian Strategic Air Defense] #2 - Page 29 Empty S-500 Weapon System Acquires the Faculty of Invisibility

    Post  AK-Rex Wed Jun 15, 2016 1:02 am

    The Ministry of Defense has ordered special containers for the protection of the anti-aircraft weapon systems, radars, command posts, and other sophisticated electronic hardware platforms from detection by spy satellites, writes the Izvestia daily citing a representative of the Russian Defense Ministry familiar with the situation.

    S-300/400/500 News [Russian Strategic Air Defense] #2 - Page 29 S400_vinogradov_d_850

    In 2016 we plan to acquire such containers designed particularly for the latest anti-aircraft missile systems and anti-missile systems such as the S-500, the publication’s source reported.

    The new hardware will hide electromagnetic radiation which incidentally occurs during the operation of electronic systems from signals intelligence equipment. “It occurs during the operation of any electronic equipment: from a normal lamp to a heavy duty radar facility,” explained independent military expert and editor of the site Militaryrussia, Dmitrii Koneev. Radar may not emit a signal, it’s automated control system may neither transmit nor receive information, but its electronic components operate and receive electric power. This produces electromagnetic radiation, having detected which, the enemy can discover our positions without difficulty. By the type of radiation it’s possible not only to classify the target, but if we’re talking about means of communication and command posts, then also to read our data.

    Since 1995 the US National Reconnaissance Office has launched five “Mentor” geostationary reconnaissance satellites. Their purpose is not only to monitor global radio communications and discover new sources of transmission activity, but also to persistently look for incidental electromagnetic radiation. For this the five-ton satellites are equipped with antennas over 100 meters in diameter, which make them visible in the night sky to the naked eye.

    The American U2 high-altitude spy plane has been equipped with the Senior Glass system for many years, designed for the interception and analysis of incidental electromagnetic radiation. The first prototype of this system was tested during Operation Desert Storm, in which it demonstrated a high level of effectiveness.
    For defense against means of electronic reconnaissance Russian equipment will be enclosed in special containers which are not outwardly distinguishable from box trucks. However, there is a special coating within their walls and they contain special equipment to inhibit ambient radiation.

    Work on the development of the “invisible” containers was launched by the Ministry of Defense a few years ago. We are talking about the development of a series of containers of differing length and mass, to be installed directly on a truck chassis, or transported by road or rail. Some of the containers are already being mass-produced, others are going through testing. Some will contain only hardware, in others personnel will be able to operate.

    Communications systems, radar stations, radio-electronic warfare systems and command posts will be the first to be placed in the “invisible” containers.

    Shielding technologies have long been known. But to simply hide the radiation within such a massive weapons system as, say, the S-500, is impossible. It would hinder the functioning of the electronic system, and in certain conditions may become lethal for personnel. Therefore, to reach the needed effect it is necessary to combine special coatings and filters, a representative of the Ministry of Defense said.

    In parallel, the military has resolved another problem. The radiation of massive electronic weapons systems interferes with the operation of systems located nearby and negatively affects human health. This must be considered when deploying hardware. The use of absorbent containers eliminates this problem.

    Really encouraging news thumbsup . Just cant stop myself from giving a thumbs up. thumbsup

    Just imagine the difference between 1990-98 era and today. Cant imagine the emotions of the general saying words like ..

    "The industry is reaching its full capacity, so this year we will receive six S-400, and next year, we won't slow down the pace as well," Bondarev said.

    These words it self show just how much Russian industry has progressed. Russian political class(kremlin) is very careful not to engage in a direct conflict with the west/financial collapse otherwise this seemingly unprecedented industrialization would come down

    New S-300PS regiment went on combat duty in Abakan. Have heard it will be called the 170th.

    "The anti-aircraft missile systems S-300PS today (Friday) at 10.00 local time (06.00 MSK) atonement for combat duty in the Republic of Khakassia", - told Shchemelev.

    According to the source, the calculations Abakan anti-aircraft missile compound successfully completed the training course for new weapons, carried out a program of training and combat shooting on Ashuluk range in the Astrakhan region in late March. "To accommodate the new S-300 systems were equipped with the appropriate positions," - said the representative of the military.

    He said that the anti-aircraft missile compound was formed on the territory of Abakan December 1, 2015. "The main objective of anti-aircraft gunners - cover important objects in the zone of responsibility", - said Shchemelev.

    S-300PS - anti-aircraft missile system of medium-range, designed to destroy air targets at ranges up to 300 kilometers, flying at speeds up to 1.2 thousand meters per second. The complex is able to simultaneously fire six goals, suggesting every two missiles.

    Did you found it already? History is of no help - as far as I know there never was a S-200/300 RGT in that district...

    There was a SA-2 base at 52544415 N 91203478 E but I can't get a modern satellite image. Sayanogorsk HPP would be the most strategic target, so would suspect it would have to be within 300PS range of that.

    At your coordinates there is nothing. The SA-2 site was here 52.913166° 91.335396°. The latest Sat Pic which I saw from this site is of March 2016...nothing. Well wait and see...

    Russia's Defense Ministry will deploy a regiment of S-400 air defense systems in Crimea by the end of the summer, Lt. Col. Evgeniy Oleynikov said Friday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to Oleynikov, the latest Triumf air defense systems will be deployed in August.

    "In August 2016, a shipment of received technology [S-400] is set to be unloaded at the place of permanent deployment…in Feodosia," Oleynikov said.

    http://sputniknews.com/military/20160715/1043017888/russian-mod-deploy-s400-crimea.html

    If someone dind't knew that before, an S-400 regiment consists of:

    -2 divisions (battalions) of 12 launchers each (each division is further divided into 3 batteries (companies) of 4 launchers).
    -each division has its own radar sets (91N6E target aquisition and battle management radar, 92N6E engagement and fire control radar)  and command posts. The command posts can control up to 12 launchers each. (a divisional set).

    Note that there can also be a regiment level command post, or a bit unlikely, individual battery level command posts. Additional short range SAM systems like the 96K2 "Pantsir-S1" can be also attached to the regiment protecting the unit itself.

    That's great news - I can hardly wait to see pictures. Wish I would be there.

    Well regarding the trucks we will see. But as for example the S-400 saw many type of trucks. Not only the 5P85T2 and 5P85S2. The other ones never materialized like 51P6A on MZKT-7930 or 5P90S on Baz 6909-022.

    The old images you mentioned show BaZ trucks too. But who knows...maybe they come up with some MZKT variants.
    I wonder whether they present already both type of missles...

    Holy Crap...MEGA DEVELOPMENT...should bring tears to the eyes of Viktor, sepheronx, and kvs...lol1

    The new chip will double the rate of Russian air defense systems

    The Russian finished testing the 16-bit microcontroller for control of air defense systems (air defense). The new chip will double the speed of information processing anti-aircraft missile and radar systems, reported the press service of "instrument-United Corporation."

    The task of the microcontroller - to handle real-time incoming data and give their team based on the individual units of the combat system, ensuring a smooth and rapid functioning of the entire complex.

    Memory of a new microcontroller (product 1867VTS10T) increased four times - up to 2.5 kilobytes. Compared to its predecessors, and foreign counterparts greatly increased storage capacity (up to 64 KB) and its clock frequency. It is 120 MHz, whereas the performance of similar products does not exceed 40 MHz. Moreover, its dimensions will be smaller than the previous generation devices. Start of series production is planned for late 2016.

    - The microcontroller designed by specialists of the concern "Constellation" and the Research Institute of Electronic Technology (NIIET), - said deputy general director of "instrument-United Corporation" Andrei Chendarov. - The scheme gives developers opportunities for the realization of the desired performance characteristics of air defense systems, providing high speed processing and transmission of information.

    S400 arrives on duty in the Crimea

    SEVASTOPOL, July 30 -. RIA Novosti Russian military grouping in the Crimea is armed with the latest air defense systems, missile defense system S-400, told RIA Novosti on Saturday in Sevastopol source in the power structures of the Crimea.

    "Russian military group in the Crimea is armed with the latest air-defense missile systems S-400", - he said.

    Opens today in Sevastopol service center of concern "Almaz-Antey" will repair and maintain all service are in service in the Crimea, air defense systems, including the latest S-400, a spokesman said.

    Earlier in the Russian Defense Ministry said that in August, will transfer to the Crimea regiment advanced missile systems S-400 "Triumph".



    NOTES: Old Ukrainian S.300PS to be put into storage from another article. From satellite photos, the second regiment stationed around Sevastopol appears to be S.300PMU's.

    WOW!!!

    New milestone in the development of air defense systems! lol1 affraid lol!

    BTW it is good for its intended role, since I think that we all know the fact that calculating an aerial target's flight path (altitude, speed, direction of flight etc.) and displaying it on a pretty basic CRT( the S-400 surely uses digital ones) screen, does not require that much of computing capacity. thumbsup

    Good news to hear! Did they mentioned the exact location of the regiment?

    As for the Crimean deployment of the system, back in 2014, the 31st Division of Air Defense (31 D PVO) was formed to provide air defense for the peninsula, and the troops stationed there. Two missile regiments were formed under the command of the division, the 12th, and the 18th SAM regiments and one radar regiment (the 3rd). One of them, the 18th, is already equipped with 4 battery sets (16 launchers) of S-400 systems. Maybe this all Crimean deployment thing is to fully equip the 18th regiment with S-400s, or to completely reequip the other regiment (the 12th), which already uses S-300s.

    Interesting article about the S-400 system's Crimean deployment, and how it will effect the region's strategic balance

    Analysis : S-400 missile systems to boost Russian air defense in Crimea

    The fielding of air defense units stationed in Crimea with S-400 Triumph (NATO reporting name: SA-21 Growler) surface-to-air missile (SAM) systems shall heavily strengthen the Russian air defenses in the region, according to the Gazeta.ru online news agency.

    The S-400 Triumph is designed to defend against electronic warfare, early warning and control and reconnaissance aircraft, including those being part of reconnaissance/strike complexes, strategic bombers carrying antiradiation, cruise, tactical, operational and medium-range ballistic missiles and other air threats in electronic countermeasures-heavy environment. The SAM system engages threats travelling at a speed of 4.8 m/s at a range of 400 km and altitude of 30 km.

    The current procedure for receiving advanced air defense (AD) materiel is roughly as follows. A regiment receives its latest materiel at the Kapustin Yar Missile Range and then test-fires it (otherwise, its SAM systems may not be cleared for alert duty). Then, the systems assume the travelling configuration, displace to a railhead and proceed by rail to their unit, escorted by armed guards. The personnel are given conversion training at the operational conversion unit in the town of Gatchina prior to receiving their missile systems.

    This also applies to the 18th Guards Air Defense Missile Regiment of Sevastopol and Feodosiya, which is part of the 31st AD Division. It is receiving at Kapustin Yar the so-called regimental set of S-400s, i.e. the system command post (also known as control equipment comprising the 55K6E command post and 91N6E radar) and two SAM systems, each comprised of a 92N6E multifunction radar and 12 5P85SE2/5P85TE2 self-propelled launchers, each mounting four 48N6E3/48N6E2 missiles.

    The fielding of air defense units stationed in Crimea with S-400 Triumph (NATO reporting name: SA-21 Growler) surface-to-air missile (SAM) systems shall heavily strengthen the Russian air defenses in the region, according to the Gazeta.ru online news agency.

    The exact number of the launchers the Feodosiya-based unit is receiving as part of its regimental set is unknown.

    In addition, the regiment is to receive relevant SAMs (the hardware and software of the 98Zh6E SAM system allows firing the 48N6E3 and 48N6E2 missiles and the 48N6E as well). It is possible that the regiment has 40N6 missiles as well.

    The 48N6E3 and 48N6E2, which range is 250 km and 200 km respectively, share a common layout, a semiactive homing head able to handle targets with a speed of 4,800 m/s and 2,800 m/s respectively, and an upgraded adaptive warhead tailored to enhance their effectiveness against ballistic targets.

    In addition, the 18th AD Regiment is to receive the 30Ts6E maintenance equipment set as part of the S-400 package. All of the Triumph’s components are mounted on self-propelled high-mobility wheeled chasses and furnished with integral power supply, positioning, geolocation, communications and utility systems. The system’s components may be plugged to external power supply units to operate in uninterrupted manner for a long time.

    There are reasons to believe that the air defenses of Crimea will gain a drastically advanced capability after the S-400s have set up shop there.

    As is known, an air defense system consists of a system of SAM and fighter jet coverage and a system of radar surveillance.

    The fielding of air defense units stationed in Crimea with S-400 Triumph (NATO reporting name: SA-21 Growler) surface-to-air missile (SAM) systems shall heavily strengthen the Russian air defenses in the region, according to the Gazeta.ru online news agency.

    Let us see again what Crimea’s air defenses have looked like until recently. The air defense forces stationed in Crimea before 1991 had been strong enough. In particular, the peninsula accommodated the 1st AD Division in Sevastopol, which comprised the 174th AD Missile Brigade (city of Sevastopol, Senezh-M automatic control system) made up of battalions operating the S-75 (SA-2 Guideline), S-125 (SA-3 Goa) and S-200 (SA-5 Gammon) SAM systems (later the S-200 and S-300 (SA-10 Grumble) ones); 206th AD Missile Brigade (Yevpatoria, Senezh-M automatic control system), S-75, S-125 and S-200 SAM battalions; 1014th SAM regiment (Feodosiya, Baikal-1 automatic control system), S-75 and S-200 SAM battalions (later the S-200 and S-300 battalions); 62nd Fighter Regiment (Belbek AFB, Rubezh-1M automatic control system) on Sukhoi Su-27 (Flanker) fighters; 16th Radar Brigade (Sevastopol) comprising radar battalions in Belbek, Ai-Petri, Yevpatoria and Kerch, and separate radar companies stationed at Cape Fiolent, in Alushta, Opolznevoye, Cape Tarkhankut, Jankoi, Gvardeiskoye, Razdolnoye, Cape Meganom, Feodosiya and Kazantip.

    These days, there is the Russian Aerospace Force’s 31st AD Division stationed in Crimea. It comprises the 12th AD Missile Regiment in Sevastopol (CP and two S-300PM battalions) and 18th AD Missile Regiment in Feodosiya, the latter receiving the cutting-edge materiel. The radar surveillance system in Crimea is represented by the 3rd Radar Regiment in Sevastopol and Lyubimovka. In addition, a Podsolnukh over-the-horizon radar is stationed in the peninsula. The fighter coverage is provided by the 27th Composite Air Division at Belbek AFB. The division consists of the 37th Composite Air Regiment in Gvardeiskoye, which operates Su-24M (Fencer-C) tactical bombers and Su-25 (Frogfoot) attack aircraft, and 38th Fighter Regiment on Su-27s and Su-30SMs (Flanker-C) at Belbek AFB.

    On the face of it, there are far less assets there now than the 1st AD Division used to have. One should keep in mind, however, that the S-300PM and S-400 SAM systems are far more superior to their predecessors as far as lethality and rate of fire are concerned.

    According to Colonel General Vladimir Litvinov, former first deputy commander-in-chief, Air Defense Force, Crimea’s air defenses are quite adequate for contingencies as well. "Crimea’s air defenses can be beefed up quickly at a push. In my opinion, joint command and control of the assorted AD units on the peninsula should be improved [on the basis of automation]," the general stressed.

    Colonel General Igor Maltsev, former chief of the Air Defense Force Main Staff, believes that the refining of the air defenses must proceed from the adversary’s capabilities in the first place.

    "What air threats oppose us in this theater of operations? The Bulgarian and Romanian air forces are no formidable opponents to us. Turkey will hardly ever risk an open conflict with Russia. I presume the S-400s in Crimea are designed to deter the United States from provocations against the Russian Federation in the southwest strategic area," Maltsev said.

    Obviously, the strengthening of Crimea’s air defenses shall continue - as soon as possible to boot. Ordered by the Russian president in February, the snap inspection of the Southern Military District, of which the Crimea Peninsula is part, showed that the military is able to project power into the strategic region quickly, according to the Gazeta.ru online news agency.

    This is a very good article IMO  thumbsup . It is good that they wrote about its role in the region's protection. It also has interesting facts about the air defense units of the Crimean peninsula, and additional technical info about the S-400 system itself. It is good to see that the Crimean peninsula has such a developed air defense "shield (for example, before reading this article, I didn't knew that there is a Podsolnukh radar in Crimea).

    Little old , but good..

    Enemies will not be able to listen in on Russia’s new S-500 system



    Russia’s new S-500 long-range surface-to-air missile system will have new radio communications systems that are unrivaled in terms of quality, data transmission distance and stealth, according to its developers.

    "Currently, the corporation is developing the next, sixth-generation radio communications resources for completing the various types of military technology, including air-to-surface missile systems – those already present in the armed forces and those that will be in the future," said a representative of the Russian defense industry, noting that the future S-500 surface-to-air missile system is one of them.

    The source explained that the radio stations of the previous generation worked on frequencies that had been established earlier, something that increased the possibility of the transmitted information being tracked and intercepted. In future systems it will be impossible for such situations to occur.
