The Design and Technological Department of the Precision Electromechanics Factory Republican Production Unitary Enterprise (RPUE) has completed two development projects (R&D) on the creation of air target simulators for anti-aircraft guided missiles (SAM) with an optical homing seeker (based on the Grad 122-mm rocket), as well as for SAM with an optical homing seeker (based on an 80-mm unguided aircraft missile). This became known after state tests, held at the end of May 2020 at the 174th training ground of the Air Force and Air Defence.
Successful completion of R&D allows now providing the Belarusian Army with home produced means for training and drilling of short-range anti-aircraft missile systems and portable anti-aircraft missile systems crews in order to form and maintain their stable skills in detecting, tracking and destroying air targets in modern combat.
The products are safe to handle, their spontaneous operation when exposed to static electricity and atmospheric electrical phenomena has been excluded.
Phase-in of the created products will allow the Armed Forces to eliminate dependence on the purchasing and supplies of foreign analogues.
