Source: in the technopolis "Era" modernize the aviation sighting complex "Hephaestus"
Viktor Murakhovsky, editor-in-chief of the Arsenal of the Fatherland magazine, added that the accuracy of the SVP-24 can be improved by improving the software and integrating it with condition sensors on board the Aircraft
MOSCOW, May 8. / Tass /. Specialists of the military technopolis "Era" in Anapa are working to improve the accuracy of the aviation aim-navigation complex SVP-24 "Gefest." About this on Wednesday TASS reported a source in the military-industrial complex.
"One of the units of technopolis" Era "is developing a new advanced aiming complex" Hephaestus "for aircraft, which will even more significantly increase the accuracy of using unguided ammunition, which already has the corresponding accuracy of" high precision ", the source said.
In August 2017, the chairman of the Military Scientific Committee of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, Lieutenant-General Igor Makushev reported that the accuracy of the defeat by unguided bombs from bomber equipped with Hephaestus is comparable to the use of guided munitions. A TASS source in this regard noted that conventional aerial bombs with a modernized complex would not only be close, but would be reached according to this indicator at the same level as adjusted ammunition.
As explained by TASS chief editor of Arsenal of the Fatherland, Viktor Murakhovsky, the accuracy of the SVP-24 can be improved by improving the software and integrating it with solid-state sensors on board the aircraft, which will provide accurate data on external conditions in real time. "To improve the accuracy characteristics, it is also necessary to have more accurate external data. For example, the wind speed is at a height - [accuracy] depends quite strongly on this, better even in heights, in layers," the source explained.
In addition, it is necessary to calculate the aerodynamics of the munitions themselves in more detail. In many respects, the accuracy of hitting a target depends on the accuracy of the signal of satellite navigation systems. “It should be understood that the accuracy of GLONASS itself strongly depends on whether there are any differential corrections in the area of application of the station. If they are, then the accuracy is significantly increased,” the expert noted.
