At the International Maritime Defence Show IMDS-2015 Izhevsk Electromechanical Plant KUPOL, JSC, will demonstrate the samples of independent training simulator of commander and operator, capable of operating in the Squad mode, and the latest SRSAM system Tor-M2KM of modular version.
The International Maritime Defence Show IMDS-2015 will take place from 1st to 5th of July in Saint-Petersburg. Program of the show includes exposition, conferences, seminars, round tables and vivid demonstrations.
Produced by IEMP KUPOL, the new generation surface-to-air missile systems of the Tor family take leading position among short-range SAM systems in the world. Currently the SAM system is manufactured in three modifications: Tor-M2E on the tracked chassis, Tor-M2K on the wheeled chassis and modular Tor-M2KM. Today IEMP KUPOL is collaborating with the leading developers and manufacturers of the naval forces ships developing maritime modification of Tor-M2KM.
The independent combat module Tor-M2KM is the latest development, characterized by providing a unique possibility to meet challenges in various conditions, operate as part of different forces, being very reliable and effective. Target acquisition, tracking and missile guidance systems, ammunition, special equipment, power supply and life support facilities, fuel tanks, up-to-date satellite navigation and other equipment of the SAM system are placed in a single unified body.
At customer’s request the unified body of the SAMS independent combat module can be integrated with any automobile chassis of at least 20-tonn capacity, semi-trailers, railway or other platforms including low-tonnage vessels. Due to small weight (not more than 15 tons) the ICM can be transported slung under heavy lift helicopter (MI-26T), making it possible to deploy the system on the roofs of buildings and constructions, in hard-to-reach places and high points.
At the International Maritime Defence Show IMDS-2015 Izhevsk Electromechanical Plant KUPOL for the first time will display a full-scale model of independent training simulator of commander and operator, capable of operating in the Squad mode.
Interest shown by the Russian army and foreign customers in acquiring and improving the staff’s combat skills in operating the Tor family vehicles without spending ammunition and motor capacity establishes a general trend on the world armament market toward growth of demand for the staff training aids.
The independent training simulator of commander and operator is intended for training of combat vehicle crew in acquisition, lock-on, tracking and engagement of targets in jamming and non-jamming environment, and allows making assessment of the crew performance.
The training simulator is produced in three versions and can be integrated in a classroom, a shelter or a shelter mounted on the automobile chassis of appropriate lifting capacity. Arrangement and view of the trainees’ workplaces correspond to the workplaces of the combat vehicle crew.
The independent training simulator of commander and operator makes it possible to simulate single and group aerial targets in the acquisition zone of CV radars and TV-optical tracker, their movement in accordance with aircraft performance characteristics and tactics, as well as influence of active and passive jammings on CV radio equipment.
Instructor’s workplace interface allows using ready raid scenarios and create own scenarios.
Therefore, simulator training is to the maximum extent possible close to the combat and training environment.
Izhevsk Electromechanical Plant KUPOL, JSC has a significant experience in production and sales of training facilities of the Tor family systems. Being supplied abroad, the training simulators proved to be very successful while in service with the foreign customer specialists.
Presently Kupol is negotiating with a number of countries to supply the training simulator as part of SRSAM system Tor-M2E, Tor-M2K and Tor-M2KM.
Being constantly upgraded, today surface-to-air missile systems of the Tor family take the leading position among the world analogues of short-range systems.
