Precise Electromechanics Plant has fulfilled the national objective of creating small-sized aircraft means of destruction
For a number of years the Republic of Belarus has been working on creation of domestic unmanned combat aerial vehicles.
One of the important tasks in this area is development of aircraft weapons for combat UAVs, which significantly differ in their weight and size characteristics from the standard means used in the Air Force.
KB Radar JSC has completed development and begun testing of a new product –Cuirasse-M 3D multilateration positioning system for UAV.
The system is designed to detect, identify, recognise and 3D-locate UAVs by their data transmission signals.
The system detects UAVs in standby mode of the time difference of arrival (TDOA) method. Due to the standby mode, the system operates unnoticeably, does not interfere with the surrounding infrastructure and can be effectively and safely used even at airports.
BSVT–New Technologies LLC initiated the development of the Trio surface-to-air missile system mounted on the ASILAK light armoured vehicle. The design incorporates advanced concepts for developing air defence systems that are capable of countering precision weapons and unmanned aerial vehicles.
The large-scale R&D project envisages the development of a universal weapon station capable of firing two types of ammunition (the R-60-NT short-range air-launched missile and 9M37M surface-to-air missile), and an acoustic and optical surveillance system.
AGAT - Control Systems JSC supplied and installed equipment for training officer cadets to work at the Gorizont tropospheric system for the Military Academy of the Republic of Belarus.
Modern simulators allow future officers to improve theoretical knowledge and practical skills, raise the level of professional education. The arrangement of the classroom has become a timely step in organising the educational process due to the start of serial production of this type of equipment and the supply of mobile tropospheric systems to the Belarusian Armed Forces.
Import substitution is one of the priority areas at the Precise Electromechanics Plant republican production unitary enterprise. This is manifested in setting up the production of competitive domestically made products and their delivery to the national and foreign markets in order to reduce imports and increase the company’s export capacity.
Agat – Electromechanical Plant JSC has launched a promising project to develop the Chimera nuclear, biological, chemical reconnaissance vehicle, which has significantly superior characteristics in comparison with its predecessors.
The R&D project will be financed by Belvneshpromservice. According to the developers, Chimera will be displayed at the MILEX 2021 exhibition.
At the beginning of October 2020, by the order of the Defenсe Minister of the Republic of Belarus, the Bogatyr-2 combined radio station R-186, developed by AGAT – Control Systems JSC – Managing Company of Geoinformation Control Systems Holding, was adopted by the Belarusian Army and supplied to the troops.
Specialists of KB Radar JSC – Managing Company of Radar Systems Holding have improved the design and software of the Groza-S electronic warfare (EW) station. The innovations are based on the experience of operating this product against unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in various climatic conditions, as well as at the users’ request.
From 14 to 15 October 2020, the first field tests of the Whistle robotic system, developed by the specialists of BSVT – New Technologies LLC, took place at one of the Belarusian military training grounds. It was first demonstrated at the parade in Minsk in honor of the 75th anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War.
During the tests, the fire control system and other important components of the unmanned vehicle were tested.
The prototype combat vehicle of the 122 mm Shkval multiple launch rocket system, developed by VOLATAVTO JSC, was successfully test-fired at the Osipovichsky firing range in late September. All the vehicle’s systems were tested, and the specified characteristics were confirmed.
AGAT-Control Systems JSC took part in the technical support of the stages of the international competition of anti-aircraft missile troops units “Confident reception”, held annually within the framework of the International Army Games. The equipment of the combined radio station Bogatyr-2 provided stable satellite communications using the domestic communications BELINTERSAT-1 satellite, which allowed to organise live video broadcasts of the games among the cities of Minsk, Borisov, Baranovichi, Osipovichi and Grodno.
KB Radar JSC has developed and set up serial production of the Groza-Z1 complex for countering multicopters. It is designed to protect yachts, ships and other marine as well as ground objects from unauthorised intrusion by drones, which can be used for photo and video of private life or commercial activities, as well as for the delivery of dangerous items, including explosive devices.
Currently, work is underway at OJSC “MZKT” to create a new model of military-technical vehicles. The novelty is a lightly armored 5-seater vehicle MZKT-490101, which is designed to transport and protect the crew from being hit by small arms and the damaging factors of explosive devices.
The MZKT-490101 vehicle is all-wheel drive, with 4x4 wheel arrangement, with steered wheels of the first axle. The carrying capacity is 1800 kg.
On July 8, at the 230th Obuz-Lesnovsky combined arms range, the first flight tests of the modernized supersonic anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) 9M114BM “Rumba” were carried out, designed to destroy various types of armored vehicles, low-flying air targets, defensive structures, low-tonnage surface targets, as well as manpower in shelters and in open areas.
As part of the practical training of strike unmanned aircraft systems specialists, Display Design Office JSC in 2020 completed more than 80 flights with the combat use of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS).
The Loitering Tube is equipped with RPG-26 anti-tank rocket-propelled grenades to destroy armoured vehicles, and also has the ability to apply small-sized aircraft bombs PTAB-2.5 and PTAB-10-5 to destroy area targets and enemy personnel, adapted by the Precise Electromechanics Factory (RPUE) specialists for the use with an unmanned aerial vehicle.
