The Russian fighter, which has radar with the impulse phased antenna cascade, for the first time was demonstrated at the air show in bangalor (India).
9 February. INTERFAKS-AVN - at the airshow in India Russia for the first time presents abroad fighter MiG-35, equipped with radar with the impulse phased antenna cascade (APAR). "this radar gives to fighter new military characteristics, significantly enlarges its possibilities", said to "interfaks-AVN" the first deputy design project leader â€“ the chief designer of corporation "synchro-cyclotron -NIIR" Yuri gus'kov.
In radar APAR the range rises approximately on 50%. Electronic scanning makes it possible to simultaneously ensure regime "air-to-air" and "air-surface", to work with the group and individual targets, to determine their type and class. APAR, for example, makes it possible to determine is this F -16 or MiG-21,
MiG-29 and so forth according to Yu.Gus'kova, are today made two models of APAR. Monolithic integrated circuits compose their basis. "The merit APAR lies in the fact that in each radiating element stands transmitter. In the passive phased lattice, which also possesses the merit of electronic control of ray, one transmitter, and, therefore, its reliability is considerably below. It is calculated by 60-120 hours. In APAR we have 680 transmitters and failures even of 10 percent of transmitters it does not sharply worsen the characteristic of radar ", - explained Yu.Gus'kov.
He noted that the reliability of the APAR can be estimated by 10 thousand hours. "today we declare 600-900 hours, only because it is necessary to work out this new technology", said the collocutor of agency.
He reported that into APAR is used the high speed computer, capable of performing approximately 50 billion simple operations.
This makes it possible to conduct the most complex the processing of radar signal, obtaining in this case a good permission, distinguishing targets , even if they are located in the group at a distance of 35-50 it is meter from each other.
Yu.Gus'kov reported that in the APAR, established on MiG-35, are 680 radiating channels. Subsequently their quantity can compose 1064, and in the APAR that is intended for Su-30 -, up to two thousands. "today the cost of one channel is equal to approximately 400 dollars. With the mass production it will be below ", it said Yu.Gus'kov.
He reported that the element base established on the MiG-35 APAR is completely domestic.
"our APAR does not be inferior to foreign analogs, but it is considerably cheaper. Actually APAR on the aircraft had only USA and France, and now also Russia ", - noted A.Gus'kov. "The construction of the APAR was made in such a way that it can be investigated and be gathered as children's designer Lego",- said Yu.Gus'kov.
According to him, the established on MiG-35 APAR is completely combined with the system of the power supply of fighter and with the cooling system. "this - it is very important, since APAR can be derived from the system immediately. In order the element will not burn down, we cant allow cooling to cease, in such case the temperature to not rise 500, 400 or even 300 degrees, or all this is burnt. A radar with APAR that costs millions of dollars can be burnt during the time less than one second ", said Yu.Gus'kov. He reported that next year (2008) the final version of the APAR for of multipurpose fighter MiG-35 is planned to be made.
