5 Revealing the Secrets of Combat Operations

Revealing the Secrets of Combat Operations

Posted on May 23, 2013 by team

What makes combat aviation allmighty and unvulnarable? For the answers we’ll go to the factory making military equipment. This place is in Moscow, and it’s quite unusual, photographers are normally never allowed to be there. It’s such a luck to take some shots of a secret production like this!

They have a lot of screens, cables, wires, strange devices there. And all people are wearing white coats. It’s hard to believe this place was founded back in 1917 in Tsarist Russia! It became the first aviation instrument making factory in the country.

On the photo above is a stand of a radar complex “Arbalet” (“Crossbow”) which is mounted on such helicopters as Ka-52 “Alligator”. The main functions of “Arbalet” are detection of attacking aircrafts and missiles of an enemy, navigation system update, support of a low-altitude flight and  mapping.

    Phazotron is the company that is also developing the radar system for the PAK-FA, that’s a very interesting lab.

    So we got a tour of the top Russian radar lab. Excellent. Whatever happened to Adolf Tsol–who was spying? Did he get caught or get away? US & Russia pilfer each others secrets. Hard to tell who invents what. Incredible to consider possibilities if both combined forces; egos set aside. Real fascinating to check out radar absorbing material in that lab.
    As for not having work for 10yrs…same thing happened in US when “cold war” ended. However, the stand off continues…friendlier now?

    I would love to work in a radar testing lab like that. Oscilloscopes, network analyzers, lots of cool stuff. So many buttons to push. With that kind of test equipment, a person could build time machines between orders!

    Maybe phased array microwave antenna is key to 360 degree reception?
