MOSCOW, (BM) – New Russian-made intelligence systems which enter the service with the Russian Armed Forces have significantly boosted the combat potential, General of the Army Sergei Shoigu said when addressing the scientific conference attended by the leadership of the Russian Armed Forces, learned BulgarianMilitary.com.
“The Strelets command, control, and intelligence system enable the troops to engage the targets in almost real time, 8-12 minutes after their detection”, he explained.
Moreover, according to the head of the military department, unmanned aircraft also give new capabilities for reconnaissance and destruction of enemy facilities.
The Strelets C4ISR System was tested in Syria, the Editor in Chief of Zvezda Weekly said. “Strelets KRUS ensured performance of missions of battle management, communications, data transmission, and individual and group navigation; detection, coordinate measurement, and recognition of targets; as well as guidance to a target. Information being transmitted from the KRUS interfaces with all Russian reconnaissance, surveillance, and target-designation complexes; [as well as] radars; rangefinders; clinometers; and UAVs“.
He also said: “This unified system was tested, refined and found to function well during combat operations in Syria. Everything seen by the reconnaissance satellite, reconnaissance UAV, or individual soldier was also simultaneously fed to the NTsUO. The NTsUO has been used extensively in overseeing the logistical supply for Russian forces in Syria and reducing the costs involved. Consequently, the experimental use of force enablers and force multipliers, such as EW and network-centric approaches to combat operations, have allowed Moscow to avoid sending much larger numbers of troops to Syria”.
