    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.

    An aviation division of Russian air forces will be established in Crimea
    Russian Aviaton » Friday November 21, 2014 13:52 MSK

    A new aviation division is being established as a part of the 4th Command of Air Forces and Air Defense Forces (Southern Military District); it will be stationed in Crimea, Interfax Zapad reports with reference to the General Staff of the Russian armed forces.

    “At present the 27th composite aviation division is being formed; its headquarters will be located in Belbek,” the source said. “The word “composite” here means that this division will operate fighters, strike-fighters, reconnaissance and transport aircraft as well as bombers and helicopters,” the source explained. Until quite recently a regiment of Russian air forces was stationed at Belbek airfield.

    According to Russian Minister of Defense, Sergey Shoygu, the full-scale stand-alone military units will be established in Crimea. “Analysis of possible scenarios makes us pay attention to combat readiness of military units of the Southern Military District in order to ensure the safety of our country and its allies in the South-East region. One of our top-priority objectives is to form the full-scale stand-alone military units in Crimea,” the minister said.

    People were questioning the validity of a joint venture between Russia and China over creating a more powerful version of the Mi-26, well no longer because it's now confirmed that there working on creating a more powerful successor to the Mi-26 with an outstanding double the payload capacity which would between 40 and 45 ton max payload:

    Russia and China will create a super-heavy helicopter

    The new machine will exceed its carrying capacity of the largest in its class Mi-26

    VVS Russian Air Force: News #1 - Page 36 Mi26-3p_588

    Russia and China will be engaged in the development of super-heavy helicopter, carrying capacity is twice the largest in its class Mi-26.

    As told reporters chairman of the Russian-Chinese Commission on preparation of regular meetings of Heads of Government, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, this is a new model helicopter, as the Chinese side requests the technical parameters that differ from the existing Mi-26.

    "It has now become clear in what segment of the Chinese side would like to receive heavy helicopter. Judging by the fact that they ask, it is about two times larger than the carrying capacity of our existing Mi-26 "- Rogozin said, quoted by the agency" RIA Novosti ".

    The Mi-26 is the world's largest serial transport helicopter. Its capacity is up to 20 tons of payload.

    "If the Chinese side requests the specifications, so different from the Mi-26, it seems, it should not be the Mi-26, and the focus should be on creating a super-heavy helicopter", - said Rogozin.

    Dmitry Rogozin also expressed the hope that the project superheavy helicopter can be successful, and did not agree with the estimates of skeptics who claim that this helicopter is not in demand on the market today.

    Chinese experts, according to him, ready to hold consultations on the draft joint development and production of super-heavy helicopter.

    Recall Rogozin on Tuesday took part in a working meeting with the co-chairman of the Russian-Chinese Commission for the Regular Meetings of Heads of Government, Vice Premier Wu Yi Wang Yan.

    The Russian delegation included the Deputy Minister of Economic Development, regional development, transport, agriculture, as well as representatives of other ministries and departments.

    Mi-26 - the world's largest multi-purpose serial transport helicopter. Intended for transportation of bulky cargo inside the cargo cabin and on the external load, as well as medical evacuation, rescue works. Capable of carrying loads up to 20 tons at a distance of 400 km at an altitude of 1500 m.

    Holding " Helicopters of Russia "is the only developer and manufacturer of helicopters in Russia and one of the few companies in the world have the capacity to design, manufacture, testing and maintenance of modern civil and military helicopters.

    It should be given top priority, because proper scramjet technology could enhance everything from cruise missiles and ICBM warheads, to interceptor aircraft, to tank shells.

    Crimea’s Defense Network Adds 14 Fighter Jets

    14 fighter jets, including fourth-generation Su-27SM's and Su-30's, are scheduled to land in Crimea’s Belbek military air base, set to station Russia’s modernized air forces.

    MOSCOW, November 26 (Sputnik) — 14 fighter jets are scheduled to land in Crimea’s Belbek military air base, Capt. 1st Rank Vyacheslav Trukhachev, a spokesman for Russia’s Black Sea Fleet, told RIA Novosti.

    The fighter jets are comprised of ten upgraded Su-27SM's and four Su-30's. All of them are fourth-generation fighter jets. Four of the aircraft deployed in Crimea are newly manufactured, according to Trukhachev.

    These Sukhoi Su-27 SM Flanker fighters will serve with the 62nd Fighter Regiment of the 27th Combined Air Division of the Russian Air Force at Belbek airfield near Sevastopol.

    “Ten aircraft have clocked flight hours, are maintained in good condition and will now perform tasks in the sky above Crimea. They arrive under the program of deployment of a full-fledged formation of Russia’s Armed Forces,” said the spokesman.

    The majority of Sevastopol residents have never seen such aircraft and are likely to notice them, Trukhachev added.

    Earlier it was reported that Belbek airfield will be renovated to station Russia’s modernized air forces.

    Hopefully 2015 will be the last year for delivery of Mi-28N.

    Hopefully in 2016 the Mi-28M will be ready... or Mi-28NM.

    Here's some truly exciting news in hypersonic technology research and development:



    VVS Russian Air Force: News #1 - Page 36 O_1022763

    "Summing up the results of our study, we can already make certain predictions. We have described techniques can be applied not only to launch small satellites into orbit, but also for additional acceleration of supersonic aircraft, which can reach speeds in excess of 10 Mach " - reported in Rezunkov press release of the Optical Society.

    Russian engineers have proposed the concept of the laser rocket engine



    ...This is interesting, and maybe whats needed to accelerate (pun not intended) the Zircon program.

    So far my ideas on how to succesfully create a scram jet cruise missile:

    1.) A '2' stage hybrid rocket-scram jet missile, where the first stage is a powerful solid (or even liquid) fast burning rocket fuel to accelerate the missile quickly, not unlike the rocket fuel for the Moscow ABM's missiles. The 2nd stage would be the actual scramjet engine, which in theory should increase in performance the faster the first stage rocket fuel takes it. This may prove to be the simplest as well as quickest solution to a means to an end.

    2.) A hybrid electromagnetic-scramjet missile. The missile is fired by a electromagnetic gun using explosively generated batteries as the propellant, which will aid the scramjet with a hypersonic head start.

    3.) And lastly a laser assisted scramjet missile.


    ...I think the best thing that will come from the Zircon progarm isn't the missile itself, but instead the transfer of scramjet technology to other programs! russia

    Improvements in different areas feed other areas... high temperature aluminium can be used in places where steel or titanium previously was needed making it lighter and cheaper... with scramjets having no upper speed limit literally the sky is no longer the limit....
