Russian military vehicles to be fitted with new-generation of navigation system
The Ruselectronics Group, part of Russia’s state hi-tech corporation Rostec, has developed new-generation navigation equipment for armored fighting and command and staff vehicles, Rostec’s press office said. The equipment continuously locates military hardware amid countermeasures or in hard-to-reach areas, in particular, forests and mountains, the press office added.

"The equipment making part of advanced sixth-generation communications systems measures the geographical coordinates, movement direction, speed and distance covered by the vehicle," the press office said. "The equipment is based on autonomous and satellite navigation systems to accurately locate fighting vehicles in areas where it is impossible to receive signals from satellite navigation systems due to countermeasures and terrain features," the press office added.

Compared to its predecessors, the advanced system is a unified unit with a satellite navigation receiver and a digital magnetic compass. This has allowed reducing the system’s weight and size considerably and making it easy for operation. The system is able to process signals of geomagnetic and inertial sensors and the satellite navigation equipment. This ensures reading accuracy and stability while getting a fix on the location.

Compared to analogs, the advanced system’s positioning error has been decreased to 10 meters. The system is being developed by the Sozvezdiye Company that is a Ruselectronics Group subsidiary. The serial production of the new-generation equipment is scheduled for 2018-2019.
