More than 1500 versatile BINS-SP-2M strapdown inertial navigation systems will be manufactured in Russia every year. The latest Russian fifth-generation fighter T-50 (PAK FA) will be fitted with this system, RIA Novosti reports with reference to the press-service of Radioelectronic Technologies Concern (KRET, part of Rostec State Corporation).
“Moscow Institute of Electromechanics and Automatics (MIEA, part of KRET) developed the versatile BINS-SP-2M strapdown inertial navigation system, which may be installed on aircraft, vessels or ground vehicles. The production program assumes output of 1500 systems per year,” KRET reports.
Multi-role Su-35S fighter is fitted with BINS-SP-2M system. It will also be installed on PAK FA jets.
“The cost of the new BINS system is 40% lower compared to foreign analogues. At that BINS-SP-2M outmatches the foreign systems in terms of performance. Moreover, its service life is at least 50,000 hours (almost two times longer compared to analogues),” MIEA CEO Alexey Kuznetsov said.
BINS-SP-2M is able to define the position of an aircraft more precisely (precision is almost two times higher compared to the previous version), Kuznetsov added. KRET is going to modify BINS-SP-2M for use on carrier-based aircraft, press-service added.
