    Dubai Airshow 2013: KNIRTI displays new Su-35 EW package

    Russia's Kaluga Scientific Research Institute for Radio Technology (KNIRTI) debuted a model of its newest electronic warfare (EW) system, destined for the Sukhoi Su-35, at the Dubai Airshow 2013.

    The system, designated L-265M10-02, is a modernised version of the L-175VE Khibiny jammer installed on the Su-32/34 intermediate-range bomber. KNIRTI representatives explained to International Defence Review that the new jammer is more modular than the previous model. "In this newer variant, the centreline pod is optional and the aircraft can provide for its own self-protection with just the two wingtip pods."

    However, the addition of a centreline pod can enable the host aircraft to serve as an escort jammer, working in accord with other systems built into the aircraft's tail 'stinger'.

    Russian air defense really invest a lot in new ELINT / ECM capabilities as well as in early warning capabilities. I hope they will also buy more of their airborne equivalents.

    Currently they are working on A-100 which will of course be the new AWACS, and should be powered by the new Il-476. Although surprised they didnt aim for Il-96.

    As for EW systems for airborn, look at Su-34. As well, all aircraft are supposed to receive certain amount of EW/ECM/ECCM systems.

    Their EW isnt up to scratch. Look at loses over Georgia. They need decades more to make something viable and workable.

    Su-34 is good strike platform, but I have in mind bigger planes for strategical ELINT and ECM missions as well as command posts, based on larger planes. They will need to replace similar planes based on old Il-18.

    Airborne Electronic Warfare/Defence systems Empty Russian Military Unveils Revolutionary Electronic Warfare System

    Russian Military Unveils Revolutionary Electronic Warfare System

    Russia's new Richag-AV radar and sonar jamming system can be mounted on helicopters, ships and other military equipment to jam potential adversaries' weapons systems from distances of several hundred kilometers away; it has been hailed by developers as having no analogue anywhere in the world.

    At a presentation for journalists in Kazan on Wednesday, Russian radio-electronics firm Radio-Electronic Technologies Concern (KRET) announced that it is handing over the first batch of a new helicopter-mounted electronic warfare system known as the 'Richag-AV' to the armed forces.

    The Richag-AV system, mounted on the Mi-8MTPR1 (a variant of the Mi-8MTB5-1 helicopter) is said to have no global equivalent. Its electronic countermeasures system is designed to jam radar, sonar and other detection systems in the aims of defending aircraft, helicopters, drones, ground and naval forces against air-to-air and surface-to-air defense systems within a radius of several hundred kilometers. It can be mounted on units from any branch of the armed forces, including helicopters and airplanes, as well as ground and ship-based forces.

    The Mi8-MTPR1-based Richag-AV platform, using multi-beam antenna arrays with DRFM technology, is designed to actively jam and thus 'blind' radar systems in order to defend against radio-electronic guided weapons systems. In a combat situation, the system would operate as part of an aviation shock attack group aimed at breaking through virtually any defense system, blinding everything up to and including the US MIM-104 'Patriot' anti-aircraft missile system.

    Defense Meteorological Satellite Program Primary function: Collect terrestrial, space en- vironment and Earth surface data. Dimensions: Approximately 14 ft. long. Weight: 2,545 lbs., includ- ing 592-pound sensor payload.

    Rossiyskaya Gazeta explained that in addition to working as a signal jamming system, Richag-AV is capable of carrying out radar-based intelligence gathering, which involves the finding of foreign sources of electromagnetic radiation. With an onboard database on different types of military installations, the system is capable of quickly determining the type of target, thus allowing it to jam it effectively.

    Reporters in Kazan were informed that the Russian armed forces received three Mi-8MTPR-1 helicopters equipped with the Richag-Av on Wednesday, and will receive a total of 18 such systems by October 2016, at a total cost of 11.5 billion rubles ($186 million).

    The system's predecessor, the 'Smalta' jamming system, was developed back in the 1970s, and featured a 100 km radius; in its own time the system was considered among the most effective in the world. Alongside the Richag-AV, the Russian military is presently being equipped with other electronic warfare systems, including the L-175B Hibini air and 1L269 Krasuha-2 and 1L267 Moskva-1 ground-based electronic warfare systems.

    KRET is Russia's largest radio-electronic industrial holding; it was created in 2009. The company is involved in the development and production of radio-electronic equipment in the civil and military aviation sphere, as well as air-based radar systems, electronic warfare systems, and a variety of precision instrumentation.

    KRET to deliver the latest EW suites to Russian armed forces
    Russian Aviaton » Tuesday March 17, 2015 15:39 MSK

    Radioelectronic Technologies Concern (KRET) has completed preparation of three Mi-8-MTPR1 helicopters (it is a Mi-8MTV-5-1 helicopter with the unique Rychag-AV jammer station installed) for delivery to Russian armed forces. This system protects aircraft, helicopters, UAVs, ground vehicles, and ships from air attacks and enemy air defense systems within a radius of several hundred kilometers, KRET’s press-service reports.

    “In 2014 KRET successfully fulfilled the state defense order under long-term contracts with Russian Ministry of Defense, - KRET CEO Nikolai Kolesov said. This year the concern continues timely deliveries of cutting-edge products in key areas”.

    The Rychag-AV jammer station can completely “blind” the enemy within a radius of several hundred kilometers. Moreover, the Rychag system has a database of different military equipment, which allows it to define the type of target and choose the most efficient type of interference. The new Rychag-AV stations are based on multi-beam antenna arrays. The station uses DRFM (Digital Radio Frequency Memory) technology, which ensures stable signal reception and radar jamming throughout the station’s range, KRET explained.

    The system’s components are produced in Russia and it is a unique one (has no analogues). The station offers a great versatility, as it can be installed on helicopters and aircraft as well as static facilities or moving vehicles, including ships. A predecessor of this new helicopter system, the Smalt jammer station designed for protection of groups of aircraft, was developed in the 1970s. The station was located in a UAZ trailer and had a range of only 100 km.

    The latest helicopter Mi-8MTPR-1 is designed for reconnaissance and suppression of radio-electronic systems designed for controlling enemy troops as well as enemy weapons (air defense systems, artillery, anti-aircraft and anti-aircraft artillery systems, and fighters), KRET added.

    Russia to upgrade helicopter protection system based on Syrian experience

    The helicopter protection system Vitebsk will be upgraded by 2018

    MOSCOW, March 29. /TASS/. The helicopter protection system Vitebsk will be upgraded by next year on the basis of its performance in Syria, the Russian Defense Ministry said on Wednesday.

    "The Defense Ministry has made a decision to further upgrade the army aviation’s protection system Vitebsk. The counter-terrorist campaign in Syria has allowed for accumulating the necessary experience of using this onboard protection system in real action. A decision has been made in favor of a profound upgrade of the Vitebsk system to make it capable of protecting helicopters from any current or future anti-aircraft systems of foreign manufacture," the Defense Ministry said.

    Research and development will be completed by 2018. The upgraded system will begin to be installed on army helicopters after government certification tests.

    "The Vitebsk system has vast room for improvement. It will be upgraded, its range of frequencies expanded and range enhanced to guarantee better protection for all aircraft from guided missiles and shoulder-launched rockets," he said.

    The digitalized individual protection system Vitebsk creates optical and radio-electronic jamming. Its first consignments were delivered in 2015.

    Airborne Electronic Warfare/Defence systems Empty Khibiny, is it 25-30 percent or 25-30 times???

    Post  jfb Mon May 15, 2017 5:02 pm

    Hello
    sorry if I cannot post the full url since I'm a new member and it's not authorized, but I'll try to separate them:
    Can any russian speaker help me to sort this; Here ( sputniknews dot com, sub page /military/201705131053579633-russia-electronic-warfare-systems-production/) it is said:
    "The Khibiny is a small torpedo-shaped container which is mounted on the wingtips of aircraft and increases the survival rate of the planes by 25-30 percent."

    But here ( deagel dot com, sub page /Protection-Systems/Khibiny_a002981001.aspx ) it is said:
    "According to KRET corporation the Khibiny increases the aircraft's survivability by 25-30 times."

    Which one is true? My guess is it would be the manufacturer webpage in russian but my knowledge of russian is very primitive for the moment.

    Post  GarryB Sun Jun 18, 2017 6:44 am

    Actually, now that I think about it a little I remember a mention of a new version of a jamming version of the Tu-22M3 that was tested in the Mid-1990s but failed in competition with a much larger system based on the Il-76. Apparently the larger aircraft and the extra engines allowed more power takeoff for the jammers, making them much more powerful and longer ranged.
