INSTRUMENTS OF SENSING AND OBSERVATION FOR AN INFANTRY FIGHTING VEHICLE BMP-2

The modernization of observation and sighting devices (using thermal imaging technologies) was developed: BPK-2-42MBT, expected performance: BPK-2-42MBT working distance – detection of 4000 meters, recognition of 2000 meters around the clock.

The above-mentioned modernized observation and sighting devices use thermal imaging nodes (effective operation in low light conditions, snow, fog, smoke screens, dustiness, etc.), which is more modern and progressive than image intensifier of any generation, and provides significantly higher detection range and target recognition.

The devices ensure the continuity of combat and the organization of effective counteraction to the enemy. The instruments are made in accordance with the requirements of group 1.11 of GOST B20.39.304-76, climatic modification of UHL.

Upgraded instruments BPK-2-42MBT fully retained standard dimensions and connecting fastenings and do not require any modifications in the design of armored vehicles.

Surveillance and sighting devices are produced with the necessary documentation, control by the military representation (representative office of the customer) and author’s escort. Making changes (for example, replacing the main elements – matrices, digital signal processors, image output devices, etc.). It will be accompanied by testing in the volume of typical ones, with changes to the documentation and the release of relevant messages.

CONCLUSIONS:

- The maximum possible price / quality / opportunity / localization is ratio.

- Significantly improved the characteristics of standard surveillance instruments and aiming tanks at minimum costs, eliminated the shortcomings due to the use of the old element base.

- All the needs for the organization of mass production are taken into account.

- Maximum unification (the least amount of changes in the design of the tank and the need to make appropriate changes to existing documentation, no need to change the base for training and retrain crews).

- It is necessary to take into account the features of the proposed instruments during the training of crews, there is no need to modify the existing simulator complexes to make changes in their design or electrical part, it is sufficient to replace the standard instruments in the simulators with the proposed ones.
