The state tests of the S-111 communications complex for the fifth generation Su-57 fighter or PAK-FA will be completed by the end of 2017. This was announced on Wednesday by the representative of the united holding “RosElectronics”. C-111 provides telephone radio communication and closed communication between aircraft for various purposes, as well as control points. The communication complex implements a new level of data transmission at a range of up to 1500 kilometres,” said the interlocutor of the agency.
According to him, the complex uses high-speed trunks to transmit information in a single digital format. “The reliability of the complex is ensured by the multiple redundancies of basic functions, the use of advanced circuitry solutions, as well as a wide range of used radio channels,” the representative of the holding said.
C-111 is able to transmit in real time on radio channels of a range of centimetre waves within a group of aircraft large volumes of information. The principle of modularity of the complex allows to increase the number of channels and the volume of functions performed and apply it to any aircraft, including Ka-52 Alligator, Mi-28NM, Ka-50, Ka-62, PSV, military transport aircraft (Il-76, Il-112, An-124, PAK BTA), fighter and front-line aviation (T-50, MiG-31, Su-34), long-range aviation (Tu-22M3M, Tu-160M, PAK DA) and Drone class.
PAK-FA: A Brief Introduction
The Sukhoi/HAL Fifth Generation Fighter Aircraft (PAK-FA) is a fifth-generation fighter jointly developed by India and Russia. It is an acquired project of the Russian Sukhoi Su-57 being developed for the Russian Air Force. The PAK-FA was the earlier designation for the Indian version, while the combined project is now called the Perspective Multi-Role Fighter. The completed PAK-FA will include a total of 43 improvements over the Su-57, including stealth, supercruise, advanced sensors, networking and combat avionics.
PAK-FA (T-50) for the first time took off in 2010. Earlier it was reported that the experimental design work should be completed in 2019, at the same time it was planned to start deliveries of aircraft to the troops. The installation party, as reported by the head of the United Aircraft Corporation Yuri Slyusar, will consist of 12 cars. In August, the commander-in-chief of the Air and Space Forces of the Russian Federation Colonel General Viktor Bondarev said that the fifth-generation fighter of the T-50 received the serial name (index) of the Su-57.
