MOSCOW, August 23. /TASS/. Russia’s United Instrument Manufacturing Corporation (UIMC) will use a domestically engineered chassis to create a military command post for top Russian military officials, the manufacturer told TASS on Tuesday.
The project, codenamed Cortege, is an automobile platform boasting cross country capacity, being developed at Russia’s Central Research and Development Automobile and Engine Institute, or NAMI.
"It will be a fundamentally new vehicle, a civilian configuration of a business class off-road vehicle carrying high-tech control and communication equipment. That part of the work is being done by the Sistemprom concern in cooperation with the automobile and engine institute," the UIMC said.
The on-board equipment will provide a full set of telecommunication services, including satellite communication, IP-telephony and videoconferencing.
"Officials using this vehicle will be able to contact command centers at different levels, including the National Defense Control Center and exercise control of the armed forces during peacetime. It will be a full-fledged civilian counterpart of a mobile military control center," the UIMC said.
The vehicle’s prototype will be displayed for the first time at a closed demonstration session at the military-technical show, Army-2016.
The Second International Weapons Show, Army-2016 will be held at Moscow’s military theme park, known as Patriot Park located in the suburbs on September 6-11.
The exhibition will bring together 400 Russian arms manufacturers and 100 foreign delegations. The UIMC has promised to display a new generation drone and radio-electronic equipment based on "new physical principles." The exhibition will cover an area of 800 square meters.
