KRET created new navigation system for the T-50 fighter jet
Concern Radioelectronic Technologies (KRET) has created an upgraded BINS-SP2M strapdown inertial navigation system for the fifth-generation T-50 (PAK FA) fighter jet that autonomously processes navigation and flight information, determines position and motion parameters in the absence of satellite navigation, and can integrate with GLONASS, Russia’s space-based satellite navigation system.
BINS-SP2M is guaranteed to last at least 10,000 hours, almost twice as long as its foreign counterparts. Moreover, the Russian system has better performance characteristics and can be utilized universally as it can be installed not only in airborne, but also in marine and terrestrial equipment.
The BINS-SP2M navigation system for the T-50 was developed by two KRET enterprises, Moscow Institute of Electromechanics and Automatics (MIEA) and Ramensky Instrument Engineering Plant (RPZ). The equipment is built on the basis of laser gyros and quartz accelerometers, instruments for measuring the acceleration of moving objects.
