Modern Optoelectronics at Russia Arms Expo-2013

Ural Optical and Mechanical Plant will present a line of optoelectronic systems


25.09.2013 Rostec.ru


The Ural Optical and Mechanical Plant (UOMP) will demonstrate the advanced optical-radar station 13SM-1 and an optical-radar station designed for modern combat aircraft.

The 13SM-1, designed for MiG-29, and the optical-radar station for the Su-27 will be presented. Both systems are designed from an entirely modern point of view.

These systems differ from their predecessors primarily in their functionality–for example, by forming an image in two spectral ranges. Compared to previous stations, this significantly increases the possibilities for detection and identification.

New tactical and technological characteristics also allow for tracking of several air and ground targets simultaneously, and multi-channel capture and tracking provides for accurate targeting even during episodes of natural and man-made interference.

Ural Optical and Mechanical Plant, a leading manufacturer of optical-electronic platforms for various purposes, will present an upgraded, around-the-clock GOES-337M search-and-surveillance system for Mi-17 airplanes.

The system consists of two television cameras (monochrome and color), a thermal camera, and an eye-safe laser rangefinder. GOES-337M allows for around-the-clock visibility and search capabilities in any weather condition. Its detection and identification capabilities can be used in various situations, such as unguided weapons and air attacks and for conducting helicopter landings on unprepared sites.

Ural Optical and Mechanical Plant will also introduce visitors at the exhibition to civilian optical surveillance systems (SOSS) that can produce high-quality, stable images for all recording needs at any time of the day and even in low-visibility conditions. SOSS can be attached to air, sea, and land carriers, as well as to a stationary observation point. Civil optical surveillance systems are broad in scope: they can be used by emergency services in search and rescue missions; for monitoring power, oil, and gas lines; controlling traffic; and in other scenarios.

One of the most promising of these systems is the SOSS (SON) 730, the simplest of the “long-range” civil optical surveillance systems. With a weight of 25 kg, it can detect objects at a distance of up to 10 km. Upon request, the SOSS 730 can be equipped with additional functions, such as automatic capture and object tracking.

The civil optical surveillance system SOSS (SON) 820 is distinguished by its small size and weight. It can be mounted on unmanned aerial aircraft and helicopters, as well as aeronautic systems. The weight of this system is less than 5 kg.

The SOSS (SON)-M-02 is a next-generation system of civil optical surveillance. It differs from previous versions in a number of important ways. Its product design is based on the principle of modularity, which allows for a rapid change of information channels directly in the field.
