UIC to provide navigation systems and other airfield equipment to Vietnam and Kazakhstan
 
The United Instrument Corporation (UIC, a subsidiary of Rostec) will ship short-range radio navigation systems to Vietnam and Kazakhstan to outfit airfields there, UIC said on Wednesday. "In particular, short-ranger radio navigation systems are being made under the contract placed by the Kazakh Air Force. The contract provides for two ‘turn-key’ systems to be delivered to two airfields in Kazakhstan," UIC said.

UIC will supply airfield equipment to Vietnam as well. "More sets of the RSBN-4NM short-range radio navigation system and PRMG-76UN radar beacon landing system will be delivered to the Socialist Republic of Vietnam in Q4 of 2015," UIC added. This will be the third batch of the equipment like that supplied over the past four years.

As was reported in the press, UIC also supplies Vietnam with communications equipment for military airfields, e.g. the NKVS-27 ground-based communication suite from Nizhny Novgorod-based manufacturer Polyot, designed to establish networks, channels and datalinks for communicating with Sukhoi Su-27SKM (NATO reporting name: Flanker), Su-30MK2 (Flanker-C), Su-35 (Flanker-E) and other tactical aircraft.

The RSBN-4NM S-band short-range radio navigation system is designed to provide the positioning data to the crews of aircraft within the beacon’s range. The system can cue the aircraft in on the required point in automatic mode.

The PRMG-76UM S-band radar beacon landing system is designed to facilitate landing approach at airfields of various types in ICAO Category I and II weather minima in both manual and automatic aircraft control modes. The system comprises a localizer, a glideslope beacon, a rangefinder relay station and remote control/indication equipment.

Russian manufacturer Polyot (a subsidiary of Vega Corp.) in Chelyabinsk developed both systems.
