MOSCOW, April 3 – RIA Novosti. A wireless system for monitoring the state of silo launchers with intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) is being developed in Russia, follows from the Royal Readings on Cosmonautics available to RIA Novosti. “In order to provide additional objective control over the conditions for the correct operation of products and equipment of strategic missile systems and unconditional identification of the causes of emerging malfunctions and identification of accompanying factors NPO Mashinostroyenia is developing an independent monitoring system (NSC) of the state of the equipment of launchers, “the materials say.
It is noted that “the development of the NSC is carried out in both wired and wireless versions.”
The Reutov NPO Mashinostroyenia is the developer of the UR-100N UTTKh ICBM (Stiletto according to NATO classification), which are on alert in the divisions of the Strategic Missile Forces, including those with hypersonic gliding winged units (the Avangard complex).
The materials say that at present, control and maintenance of the temperature and humidity regime in launchers is carried out using standard systems, but this information is not enough for objective warranty and designer supervision by manufacturers. In addition, this control by manufacturing enterprises is impossible, since it is carried out only by military operators of missile systems.
Hence, as noted in the materials, it is necessary to create an NSC, which should be created from Russian-made components, have an extended service life of at least 15 years and information security tools, as well as work offline for a long time.
