    I think that it is original, I got the pic from Rogozin's Facebook article about restoring old aircraft.

    KRET creates multichannel laser-beam missile guidance systems

    It's a multi-channel laser-beam guidance system (LSN) for the Ka-52, Mi-8MNP, Mi-28N. The new development will provide high precision missile guidance and allow helicopters to use missiles of various types. It can also be integrated with drones, Manpads and other ground based equipment

    LSN is designed to perform tasks of locking onto the target and guiding the missile to the target, which can be achieved automaticaly or manually by an operator.

    The system uses a powerful CW solid-state laser pumped by laser diodes. Scanning of a laser beam is a compact, low-inertia, two-coordinate acousto-optic deflector, without mechanical parts operated by electric signals. In other similar products (of competitors), the control field is created purely by mechanical means, which leads to lower performance, lower reliability, increased size and mass.

    "Concern established for manufacturing of high-tech and innovative systems and introducing them to the series. They should be universal, in other words - it must be installed on old and new equipment, – said the first Deputy General Director KRET Igor Nasenkov. – Modern laser technology KRET fully meet these requirements. In particular, the LSN can be installed on helicopters and ground vehicles, MANPADS and drones".

    The LSN test confirmed the high precision guided missiles and high reliability of the developed instrument. The laser guidance system is commercially available at KRET.

    KRET develops stellar navigation system for Russian strategic bombers

    The KRET concern has developed the ANS-2009 stellar navigation system for the Russia’s Air Force Long-Rang Aviation’s (LRA) strategic bombers, the company has revealed.

    “ANS-2009 allows the high-precise calculation of the plane’s co-ordinates, basing on stars’ position” the source told IHS Jane’s . The system’s evaluation, integration and control unit (EICU) identifies true co-ordinates and flight course, using such data. “The system is intended to evaluate the object’s speed and position, not depending on the flight duration,” they added.

    “This method is the most reliable in combat conditions, when navigation satellite systems can be put out of action by an enemy,” the source pointed out.

    Usually one star visible during the day... Smile

    I suspect it uses an inertial system when there are no points it can measure from... a ground system can use a terrain map with known locations to update accuracy, while on aircraft flying above the clouds stars and the sun and moon can be used as reference points.

    Very similarly to using it during the night; you can see stars during the day with a telescope.

    The navigation system does not need the visible light band to operate. Stars emit at all sorts of frequencies and
    you can have a starry sky in the middle of the day if you observe in the infrared.

    Interesting; the American patent for a day-time stellar tracker claims a precision of 30m.

    This is a magnitude worse than GPS/GLONASS; which claim accuracies of 3 - 7.5m, but still very much accurate enough for most uses.

    Such systems would be too large to install on any precision-weapons though; as they rely on cameras/telescopes.

    If harper wasnt a puppet for US or an asslicker to Nazi supporting Ukrainians here in Canada, then maybe I would be for peaceful arctic joint venture between Canada and Russia. But because of our politics here, I can only suggest to the other side to bunker down and dont trust whatever harper or the other ass clowns in Ontario say.

    Interesting photo report from reconstruction of Akhtubinsk, Severomorsk-1 and Palana airfields, airbases. It's great to see new infrastructure, but only thing I miss in report are hangars for planes. Anyone have more informations or pictures of new hangars for planes? It is a waste of money to expose planes to the harsh weather under the clear sky instead of storing them in hangars. Warm hangars will increase the lifetime of planes.

    Well, the planes do get covered in tarps.

    A lot of planes go in underground bunkers as I recall.

    Russian Air Force aircraft fitness to reach 80% by yearend — defense ministry

    Meanwhile, a whole series of incidents have occurred with Russian military aircraft lately

    MOSCOW, July 31. /TASS/. Aircraft fitness in the Russian Air Force will reach 80% for the first time ever by the end of this year, a spokesman for Russia’s Defense Ministry said on Friday.

    "The fitness rate of military equipment and armaments is 98% in the Army. The defense minister has set the task to have this rate at the level of no less than 80% in the Air Force by the end of this year. This has never been before," the spokesman said.

    "This decision was first made for long-range aviation and then for all aviation forces," the spokesman said.

    Meanwhile, a whole series of incidents have occurred with Russian military aircraft lately.

    Technical failures were among the major causes for these incidents. Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said last week the breakdown incidence in military aviation continued to be a major problem.
