Modernization of Mi-24 (Mi-35)

Mi-24 (Mi-35) helicopter upgrade

Objective of upgrade: Increase in combat efficiency of Mi-24 (Mi-35) multi-purpose attack/transport helicopter.

SET OF NIGHT VISION EQUIPMENT

SET OF NIGHT VISION EQUIPMENT
Night vision equipment enables observation of external environment of the helicopter at natural night illumination with maximum visibility 2-4 km to accomplish the following operations:
  • Takeoff, hovering and piloting within the range of altitudes from 50 to 200 m with visual control of the ground;
  • Approach and landing at unequipped and unenlightened sites;
  • Detection and recognition of power transmission line masts, trees, “KUNG” trucks and other targets against the background of the surface covered with green grass at the distance of at least 0.5 km;
  • Observation of external environment through night vision goggles without NVG re-focus;
  • Observation and reading the devices on instrumentation boards past night vision goggles.
Lighting facilities of the helicopter (external, internal, illumination and navigation lights) are adapted to night vision equipment.
 
 
 
INSTALLATION OF FLIGHT DATA VIDEO REGISTRATION SYSTEM

INSTALLATION OF FLIGHT DATA VIDEO REGISTRATION SYSTEM
Video image
Flight data video registration system is intended to record the following information on changeable solid state carrier:
  • Color video of external environment;
  • Crew talks;
  • Flight information obtained from on-board systems;
  • Video registration system commands.
The information obtained by video registration system enables operative analysis of:
  • Combat use of the helicopter (results of target attack and air reconnaissance);
  • Emergency situations during the flight;
  • Piloting errors.
 
 
INSTALLATION OF BKS AIRBORNE COMMUNICATIONS SUITE

INSTALLATION OF BKS AIRBORNE COMMUNICATIONS SUITE
BKS airborne communications suite is intended to provide open ECM-resistant and secure voice and data radio communications when interacting with other aircraft and ground-based command posts.
 
 
«SATELLITE» ECM PROTECTION SUITE – AIRBORNE ECM PROTECTION SUITE OF THE AIRCRAFT

SATELLITE ECM PROTECTION SUITE – AIRBORNE ECM PROTECTION SUITE OF THE AIRCRAFT
«Satellite» ECM protection suite is intended for ECM protection of the aircraft, whatever the type, from precision radio guided weapons launched from enemy airborne interception suites or air defense missile systems.
 
 
INSTALLATION OF «ADROS» OPTRONIC SUPPRESSION STATION

INSTALLATION OF ADROS OPTRONIC SUPPRESSION STATION
«Adros» optronic suppression station is intended to provide active protection of helicopters from missiles equipped with IR homing heads.
«Adros» station can counteract IR seekers with amplitude-phase modulation, frequency phase modulation, time pulse modulation and highly jam-resistant heads. «Adros» station discontinues target acquisition on the flight path of «Stinger» (frequency phase modulation), «Igla» (time pulse modulation), «Igla-1» (frequency phase modulation), R-60 (frequency phase modulation), R-60М (frequency phase modulation), R-73 (time pulse modulation), «Sidewinder» (amplitude-phase modulation) and other missiles. Meanwhile, the system does not require considerable prevalence of station emissions (noise signal) over radiation of the protected helicopter engines (target signal).
Efficiency of the station is achieved by new method of optronic suppression and advanced design of electronically controlled modulator based on programmable processors.

«ADROS» OPTRONIC SUPPRESSION STATION
Suppressed types of missiles (stations): «Sidewinder», «Strela-2М», «Python», «Chaparral», «Stinger», «Igla», «Igla-1», R-60, R-60М, R-73
Probability of attack repeal: 0,8
 
 
BUR FLIGHT DATA RECORDING SYSTEM ENABLES:
BUR FLIGHT DATA RECORDING SYSTEM ENABLES
  • Integration of additional sensors and gauges to obtain more valid information about the condition of the systems and equipment during the flight and to maintain airworthiness of the helicopter;
  • Highly accurate registration of parameters (max error 1%);
  • Use of advanced automated flight data processing equipment (the data are processed with specialized hard- and software suites like «DVINA-М» automated flight data processing system);
  • Considerable reduction of the time required for data decryption and processing;
  • Full guarantee of data safety in case of severe flight accidents.
 
 
«DVINA-М» AUTOMATED FLIGHT DATA PROCESSING SYSTEM

The system is intended for reading, prompt processing and storage of flight data registered by «Tester», «Gamma», «MSPR-64», «SOK UBD», «Ekran», BUR-4, BR-4Т-3, BUR-1-2 air borne devices.

INSTALLATION OF SATELLITE NAVIGATION SYSTEM

INSTALLATION OF SATELLITE NAVIGATION SYSTEM
The system is represented by airborne suite based on GPS-receiver which displays the information about aircraft location, navigation parameters and surface obstacles on color screen.
Flight planning on the device involves formation of flight plan by input of waypoints in the required sequence of their passing and, if necessary, landing approach paths or climb paths after takeoff. Flight plan is shown on navigation maps with the help of varied width, type and color lines with regard to path type and current active flight plan segment.
