MOSCOW, August 13. /TASS/. Russia’s united instrument engineering corporation (affiliated with Rostec) plans to create an upgraded communication complex for a future combined gun-missile air defense system Pantsir-SM by the end of this year, the corporation’s spokesman has told TASS.
"In this new product of the Sozvezdiye concern the parts and components will be renewed and upgraded in line with the import substitution policy requirements and a number of the system’s parameters improved. The range and data processing capabilities will be enhanced, types of modulation and algorithms of adaptation to jamming will be updated. Also, there will emerge special options for transmitting brief messages and video data," the source said.
Future equipment will be compatible with various types of data transmission means depending on specific conditions: radio waves, wire, optical fiber lines and their combinations.
"The system will automatically identify any communications disruptions in the channel and will be able to restore lost contact without operator interference. The high degree of automation will enable personnel to focus on combat tasks without being distracted to communication process technicalities," the source said.
Earlier, the head of the Vysokotochnyie Kompleksy (High Precision Complexes) holding company, Alexander Denisov, said the Russian armed forces would have the Pantsir-SM complex at the end of 2016, early 2017 at the latest. The system will be armed with a new high-speed missile already tested at the Ashuluk test site.
Pantsir-S1 was developed in 1994 for providing protection to small ground facilities from air strikes. It has been exported to a number of countries, such as Iraq, and the United Arab Emirates. Talks are in progress on their sale to Brazil.
