The upgraded Rychag-AV system will be produced in 2016-17
The active jamming station can "blind" enemies within several hundred kilometers
The serial production of the upgraded Rychag-AV electronic warfare system will begin within two years. KRET is currently completing development work on this product.
The delivery of the basic version of the Rychag-AV for the Mi-8MTPR-1 helicopter, planned for 2015, will be completed in the near future, as reported by TASS, quoting Aleksey Panin, the Deputy CEO of Kazan Optical and Mechanical Plant, which makes the station.
"We are planning to begin mass production of an upgraded version of this system beginning next year or in 2017. KRET is currently completing development work on this product," he said.
As previously reported, by the end of the year, the concern will test a new modification of Rychag, whose performance specs should be much improved.
The Rychag-AV active jamming station can already completely "blind" the enemy within a radius of several hundred kilometers. In addition, the Rychag system stores information about military equipment and can thus determine the type of target and select the most effective form of interference for it.
Rychag-AV systems are based on multi-beam antenna array. DRFM (Digital Radio Frequency Memory) technology is used to create the station's signals and ensures stable reception of radar signals and their jamming across the entire range.
The Mi-8MTPR-1 helicopter with the Rychag system on board is intended to conduct radio reconnaissance and suppress command and control systems of enemy weapons. It is capable of protecting airplanes, helicopters, drones, ground vehicles, and ships from air attacks. This year KRET has already delivered three Mi-8MTPR-1 helicopters to the Russian armed forces.
