Moscow Airshow: Rosoboronexport to launch the Spanish PAZ satellite

Posted on 28 August 2015 by admin

On August 27 at the MAKS 2015 International Aerospace Show, Rosoboronexport, part to the Rostec State Corporation, has signed a contract with HISDESAT Servicios Estratégicos SA, a Spanish satellite service company, to launch the PAZ spacecraft in 2015.

 

The PAZ satellite, developed and manufactured by Airbus Defense & Space in Spain, is intended for a wide range of applications in cartography, environmental monitoring, urban planning, and topographical survey to evaluate the condition of water, land and forest resources.

 

Following the commissioning of the satellite, HISDESAT Servicios Estratégicos SA, which is its sole owner and operator, plans to sell licenses for the monitoring data to consumers around the world in accordance with international norms and rules.

 

The launch vehicle to be used will be Dnepr and the technical work associated with the launch preparations will be perfomed by International space company Kosmotras.

 

“The signing of this contract is a good example of mutually beneficial cooperation with our European partners in the aerospace sector. We are among the world’s leaders in launching military, civilian and dual-purpose spacecraft in the interests of foreign countries and pursue a consistent policy to strengthen Russia’s position in this segment of the world space services market,” said Ivan Goncharenko, Rosoboronexport’s first deputy general director heading the Company’s delegation at the exhibition.

INDO DEFENCE: Rosoboronexport to display Russian armaments and military equipment

Posted on 06 November 2012 by admin

 

Rosoboronexport plans to discuss all outstanding issues of military technical cooperation with both Indonesian and other regional partners. Rosoboronexport is presenting more than 200 items of Russian armaments and military equipment at 5th International INDO DEFENCE 2012 Expo & Forum will be held from 7 to 10   November 2012 at Jakarta, Indonesia.

 

“Indonesia is one of Russia’s major partners in the region, and it is only natural that we expect progress in many areas of our military technical cooperation with this country, following our talks in Jakarta. We offer our Indonesian partners various projects. It can be licence assembly, joint item development, or assistance in refining products developed by Indonesia. This also involves technologies transfers, which is now especially important for Indonesia striving to develop its own defence industry”, – said Viktor Komardin, deputy director general of Rosoboronexport and head of the delegation to the exhibition.

 

Rosoboronexport expect that Russian air defence systems, such as the Buk-M2E missile system, Pantsir-S1 gun/missile system, and Igla-S man-portable air defence missile system, will draw special attention this year.

 

Rosoboronexport proposes to Indonesia a concept of integrated air defence system based on the Buk-M2E medium-range air defence missile systems and Pantsir-S1 short-range air defence gun/missile systems. Russian experts believe that the system in such configuration will be able to effectively protect country’s vital military and administrative installations from all existing air attack weapons of potential enemy, including from massive air strikes.

 

Highly popular in the region Russian aircraft will also be at the centre stage of the exhibition. Besides promoting new defence products such as the Ka-52 and Mi-28NE combat helicopters, Mi-26Т2 heavy-lift transport with the upgraded avionics suite and Ka-226T light multipurpose helicopters, Rosoboronexport intends to discuss with its partners all issues related to the organisation of an efficient after-sales servicing system for Russian aircraft and helicopters as well as conditions for establishing service centres.

 

Indonesian partners will display a BMP-3F infantry combat vehicle (ICV) operated by the Indonesian Marine Corps. The BMP-3F ICVs have earned an excellent reputation with the Indonesian armed forces. Other countries in the region are showing interest in armoured vehicles from the BMP-3 family. Russian armoured materiel in general, and the T-90S main battle tank (MBT) with its latest upgraded version in particular, show good sales prospects in this region’s market.

 

The 90S MBT has demonstrated excellent performance meeting its high combat and running specifications during most exacting trials in one of the countries in the region.

 

In the naval sector Rosoboronexport offers a wide variety of surface ships and boats, submarines, various weapon systems. Considering extended maritime borderlines of states in the region, one of the most important problems is to ensure effective protection of their 200-mile economic zones. For this purpose Rosoboronexport offers a set of facilities for establishing an integrated littoral sea control system.

SURMOUNTING HURDLES

Posted on 01 September 2012 by admin

The present-day combined arms battlefield has evolved to become increasingly demanding, as far as fast concentration of assets on the main axis of advance is concerned. Meanwhile, water and terrain barriers and obstructions exert a significant delaying effect on force projection, thus impeding the success of military operations in general. Therefore, in Russia a large family of engineering vehicles, specifically designed to effectively surmount various obstacles was developed. All equipment was made by one and the same design bureau, which maximized vehicles’ commonality in terms of fixtures and couplings, thus adding to their battlefield interoperability.

One of the best examples offered by Rosoboronexport is the MTU-90M armored vehicle launched bridge that can span a ditch, ravine or other gaps of up to 19 m. Boasting an armor protection comparable with that of main battle tanks, MTU-90M is used to lay single-span bridges during the battle in the face of enemy fire. Bridge removal is possible from both sides of the obstruction.

When bridging gaps with spans up to 40 m on forces deployment routes, the MMK mechanized bridge layer is used. The system includes vehicles to transport bridge elements and an assembly vehicle. The bridge is deployed by pushing elements along the level rail with their subsequent interconnection. MMK elements can be combined to launch bridges of 16, 22, 28, 34 and 41 m.

The TMM-6 heavy mechanized bridge layer allows deploying bridged to cross chasms, canals and water barriers with spans up to 100 m and depth up to 5 m. The bridge is laid by setting bridge elements in place one after another and interconnecting them. TMM-6 can be used to launch either one bridge across a 102 m gap, two 51 m bridges, three 34 m bridges or six 17 m ones. Rosoboronexport also offers the PTS-4 amphibious tracked carrier, capable of fording water barriers with a load of military hardware, personnel and cargo with the total weight up to 18 tons. The amphibian can cross obstacles with the current speed of 3 m/s. Moreover, it is also effective in SAR and emergency evacuation operations on water.

A much larger amphibious transport is the PDP ferry, taking aboard up to 60 tons of military equipment and carrying it across water obstacles with a current speed of up to 2.5 m/s. PDP is an engineering vehicle that consists of a three-pontoon ferry and a tracked carrier for transportation on land. The carrier’s specially designed wrench is used to load vehicles, which disembark on their own on the other side of the obstacle. The flat bottom and small draft allow operating the ferry in shallow waters.

The largest and the most versatile means of crossing obstacles is undoubtedly the PP-91 pontoon bridge that is used to launch a single-lane bridge with a span of 268 m, or a 168-m long 1.5 lane bridge, or a two-lane bridge out to 141 m to ensure two-way traffic. The max load of the pontoon bridge is 120 tons.

The Russian engineering solutions can help effectively accomplish missions associated with the engineering support of forces, crossing obstacles with spans up to 100 m and water barriers up to 268 m using pontoon bridges and ferries.
