Russia receives R-430 radio relay system
Russia’s armed forces have taken delivery of the R-430 radio relay system from Rostec, the company announced on 26 January.
The system consists of several types of cross-country communication vehicles that support protected networking and communications in dense electronic threat and jamming environments.
Each station comprises satellite navigation equipment - GLONASS and GPS - and a VHF radio transceiver for service communications.
According to Rostec, the equipment is ‘practically invisible’ to enemy electronic warfare systems, providing uninterrupted high-quality communications with high protection levels.
The system provides simultaneous operation in two frequency ranges and uses a quick erect antenna mast. The software uses an electronic map to calculate energy losses in any alignment and selects the optimum location for vehicles and stations. In the event of signal quality degradation, the system will select an alternative data transfer path automatically. The equipment may be installed on both fixed facilities and wheeled or tracked vehicles, enabling prompt establishment of a unified radio relay system for all levels of command.
Digital stations of the system may also be used in hard-to-reach places or in severe climatic conditions, for instance in mining or oil production. Due to its resistance to temperatures (from -50 to +50 °С), R-430 may also be used both in southern and Arctic regions.
