Russian Military to Develop Anti-Meteorite Defenses

20:02 20/02/2013

MOSCOW, February 20 (RIA Novosti) C The Russian Aerospace Defense Forces will develop a series of measures aimed at protecting the Russian soil from falling meteorites and other dangerous space objects, commander of the western military districts aviation Maj. Gen. Igor Makushev said on Wednesday.

The Aerospace Defense Forces have been ordered to handle this issue and come up with a plan to protect Russia from these space travelers, Makushev said.

The announcement comes days after a meteorite entered the Earths atmosphere undetected by existing space-monitoring means and slammed into Russias Urals on Friday with a massive boom that blew out windows and damaged thousands of buildings around the city of Chelyabinsk, injuring 1,200 people in the area. According to the Health Ministry, 52 were hospitalized.

NASA estimates the meteorite was roughly 50 feet (15 meters) in diameter when it entered Earth's atmosphere, travelling faster than the speed of sound, and exploded into a fireball brighter than the sun.

None of the existing systems, either Russian or American, detected this space object until it entered the atmosphere, Director of the Astronomy Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences Boris Shustov said on Wednesday.

The scientist said it was impossible to spot the meteorite, as it was coming from the direction of the Sun, while radars were set to detect objects flying within a predetermined speed range.

Shustov said the Russian scientists estimate the energy released at the time of the explosion at less than 500 kiloton equivalent.

He also said astronomers have discovered and catalogued only two percent of potentially dangerous space objects about 50 meters in size, which are capable of causing a catastrophe worse than the Tunguska Event.

It is a sign of our ignorance, as we should be able to monitor about at least 90 percent if not all of these objects, Shustov said.

Russian T-50 Fighter Jet to Start State Flight Test in 2014

Russia will start state flight tests of its fifth-generation T-50 fighter jet in 2014, United Aircraft Corporations President Mikhail Pogosyan told reporters on Tuesday.

In 2013 we are expected to wrap up its preliminary tests and start operational testing. In 2014, we are planning to start official state tests, Pogosyan said on Tuesday, adding the first stage of the state trials should be complete by 2015.

The test program involves six prototype airframes, including four flying, one static and one systems test airframe. Another flying prototype will join the tests this year, Pogosyan said. Flight testing this year will go ahead with five aircraft, he said.

The T-50, also known as PAK-FA (future tactical fighter aircraft), first flew in January 2010 and was presented to the public at the Moscow Air Show in 2011.

The T-50, which will be the core of Russias future fighter fleet, is a fifth-generation multirole fighter aircraft featuring elements of stealth technology, super-maneuverability, super-cruise capability (supersonic flight without use of afterburner), and an advanced avionics suite including an X-band active phased-array radar.

India will also buy a fighter aircraft based on the T-50, known as the FGFA (fifth-generation fighter aircraft).

United Aircraft Corporation is the state holding company uniting Russias aircraft building industry including Sukhoi, a military and civil aircraft manufacturer.

Zhuk-AE/FGA-35 Modified Radar with AESA

Radar : New, Newer, the Newest

The basic radar system for the Russian Air Force MiG-35S version is the N041R mechanically scanned, slotted-array radar. The export version is fitted with the Zhuk-ME (FGM229) variant. The Zhuk-M radar is not the latest, but a perfected and more economic design. A more advanced variant C the FGA35 Zhuk-AE with active electronic scanning C has already been flight tested on the MiG-35, tests that have included the
launch of missiles.

At MAKS 2013, the Phazotron company showed another variant of the Zhuk-A radar, initially designated FGA35 (3D), with new transceiver modules made from LTCC (low temperature co-fired ceramics) technology. The array is much thinner and lighter than the Zhuk-AE variant. Each module is 13mm (0.5in) deep, several times less than those used on the Zhuk-AE. The array is air-cooled (the Zhuk-AE is C liquid-cooled) while the impulse power of each module is 5W. Yuri Guskov, Phazotrons designer general promises the handover of the new radar for evaluation on the MiG-35 in 2014.

Bumerang 8x8 APC (Prototype)

Currently a new family of 8x8 armored vehicles is being developed in Russia. The project is known as the Bumerang (boomerang). A baseline vehicle will be an armored personnel carrier. The new APC will be revealed to Russian military officials in 2013. The whole project is being kept in high secrecy. It is being developed alongside a new-generation Kurganets-25 infantry fighting vehicle.

Once operational this new-generation APC should replace a whole host of ageing Russian armored vehicles. The estimated requirement is at least 2 000 vehicles. First APCs will be delivered to the Russian Army for trials and evaluation in 2013. Once approved, full-scale deliveries are expected to begin in 2015.

Russia to offer Brazil stake in future Pak-Fa

Monday, 14 October 2013

A Russian military delegation about to visit Brazil will offer joint development of a fifth-generation combat aircraft " of the type " of its own most newest fighter to Brazilian defense officials, a member of the delegation told RIA Novosti Monday.

A Russian military delegation about to visit Brazil will offer joint development of a fifth-generation combat aircraft of the type of its own most newest fighter to Brazilian defense officials, a member of the delegation told RIA Novosti Monday.

The proposal appears to be in support of an unsolicited offer by Russias combat aircraft maker Sukhoi of its Su-35 fighter, that has been struck off Brazils shortlist for its air forces F-X2 tender for the purchase of 36 fighter jets worth $4 billion. Russia is still hoping to sell the Su-35s or similar aircraft to Brazil outside the framework of that tender, sweetening the deal with the new proposal.

During the talks in Brazil, we are ready to offer our partners deliveries of ready-for-sale advanced aircraft like the Su-35, but also joint development of a next-generation [combat] aircraft of the T-50 type, the delegation source said.

The T-50 or PAK-FA, which will make up the core of Russia's future fighter fleet, is a multirole warplane featuring " stealth " technology, " super-maneuverability, super-cruise capability, and advanced avionics including an active electronically scanned array radar, according to its designer Sukhoi.

In late April, President Vladimir Putin said the first T-50 would enter service with Russias armed forces in 2016.
Russia and India are already developing a derivative of T-50 for the Indian Air Force. According to executives from Indias Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), that will build the plane, the two sides completed the preliminary design of the aircraft, tentatively dubbed FGFA, earlier this year and are now negotiating a detailed design contract.

The F-X2 tender is Brazils second attempt to find a replacement for its ageing Northrop F-5 and Dassault Mirage fighters. An earlier tender, F-X, was cancelled in 2005 due to lack of funding.

Three contenders officially remain in the running C the Swedish SAAB Gripen NG, French Dassault Rafale and US Boeing FA-18E/F Super Hornet. According to Defense Industry Daily, the FA-18E/F was close to winning the deal last month, but revelations that the United States National Security Agency had spied on the Brazilian presidential office put the deal on hold. Brazils Poder Aero magazine, citing local officials, says Brazils President Dilma Rousseff decided late last month to postpone the tender until 2015, after next years elections.

A Russian delegation led by Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, will visit Brazil and Peru on October 14-17 to promote sales of Russian weaponry to those countries. It includes Alexander Fomin, head of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSMTC) and Anatoly Isaikin, head of the arms exports monopoly Rosobornexport.

Russia Plans to Dispose of 3.5Bln Ammo Rounds, 140,000 Missiles by 2020

MOSCOW, October 23 (RIA Novosti) C Russia plans to dismantle about 140,000 old missiles and 3.5 billion rounds of obsolete ammunition by 2020, but the country may have trouble meeting that deadline, an Industry and Trade Ministry official said Wednesday.

Russias dismantlement facilities are currently able to dispose of 300,000 to 350,000 tons of such munitions a year, but they need to get rid of 1.5 million tons a year to meet the deadline, said Alexander Kochkin, deputy head of the ministrys arms and ammunition department.

Russia has abandoned dismantlement by detonation due to a series of accidents at disposal facilities. Oleg Bochkaryov, deputy head of the Military-Industrial Commission, said Wednesday that no efficient alternative to detonation had yet been found.

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said the same day that he expected a NATO-Russia project on disposal and recycling of surplus, obsolete and unstable munitions in Russias westernmost region, Kaliningrad, would begin working next year.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said in May that the country was already reducing the number of arms and ammunition in the Kaliningrad Region, with several hundred tanks and artillery systems withdrawn from there in recent years.

The Russian Armed Forces are in the midst of a major program of reform, including a gradual transition to an all-volunteer makeup, organizational changes and re-equipment with modern weapons.

PAK FA stealth features patent published

Piotr Butowski, Poland - IHS Jane's International Defence Review

09 January 2014

Sukhoi T-50 PAK-FA 5th Prototype (055)

The PAK FA's designers have paid close attention to stealthy features, which include the use of radar-absorbent coatings on the reverse of the nose-mounted IRST, the widespread use of baffles and the use of absorbent coatings in the air intakes and at the junctions between moving surfaces.

Details of the Sukhoi Design Bureau's work on the stealthy aspects of the T-50 PAK FA fighter aircraft emerged in late December 2013, when the company's patents were published.

According to the patent paperwork, taken together, all of the stealthy measures offer significant improvements over legacy fighter designs. The papers claim that the radar cross-section (RCS) of an Su-27 was in the order of 10-15 m 2 , with the intention being to reduce the size of the RCS in the T-50 to an " average figure of 0.1-1 m 2  " .

In common with other low observable aircraft designs, this reduction is achieved throught the use of radar-absorbing and radar-shielding materials and coatings, panel shaping (especially around the air intakes) and in the design of the junctions between moving elements, such as flaps and hatches.

In particular, the patent spells out the benefits of internal weapons carriage, s-shaped engine air ducts, (which were considered but are actually not implemented in the production PAK FA), and the use of radar blockers. It adds that the inlet guide vanes of the engines' compressors generate "a significant portion [up to 60%] of the radar cross-section of the airframe-powerplant system in the forward hemisphere" and that this is reduced by using radar-blocking devices and radar-absorbing coatings in the walls of the air ducts.

The shape of the airframe reduces the number of directions that radar signals are reflected in with the angles of sweep of the wings and the tail plane's leading and trailing edges, the edges of the air intakes and hatch covers being reduced and deflected from the aircraft's axis. Viewing the aircraft from the flank, the fuselage sides, lateral edges of the air intakes and vertical empennage are all deflected at the same angle.

Some openings and slots on the airframe's surface - such as the boundary-layer bleeds on the sides of the air intakes and the openings on the upper fuselage immediately aft of the cockpit - are covered with a thick grid, featuring a mesh of less than one quarter of the wavelength of a search radar, which reduces the reflections from these uneven surfaces. Gaps between the airframe elements are filled with conducting sealants, while the glazing of the cockpit canopy is metallised.

The surfaces of the PAK FA's own five radar arrays are also angled off from the vertical plane, helping to ' deflect ' enemy radar signals. The covers of the radar arrays are selective, letting through their own signals, but blocking other frequencies. Additionally, the array compartments are edged with radar-absorbing ' curtains ' to reduce possible leaks of these amplified signals.

Antennas are recessed from the surface of the skin to reduce protuberances (the vertical empennage serves as a communications antenna), while the turret of the aircraft's nose-mounted infrared search-and-track (IRST) sight is rotated backwards into a cruise position, exposing its rear hemisphere, which is covered with a radar-absorbing coating.

The release of this list of patents follows the July 2013 release of documentation covering the configuration of the fighter's integrated avionics suite.

There are currently five T-50 prototypes - the latest, T-50-5, first flew on 27 October 2013 - supporting the development programme and they are believed to have undertaken over 300 sorties to date.

In the ' Schedule of Activity for the Russian Ministry of Defence for 2013 to 2020 ' published in mid-2013, the PAK FA's Initial Operational Capability and the launch of full-scale series production is scheduled for 31 December 2016. The Russian National Armament Programme stipulates that 60 production PAK FA fighters will be delivered between 2016 and 2020.

The assembly of aircraft T-50-6-1 is nearing completion and three further aircraft (T-50-6-2, T-50-7 and T-50-8) are in build. One of the T-50-6 aircraft is intended for static trials and the other one is intended for flight testing.
