Guards tank army of the Western military district received the latest weapons in the satellite "SNARK" and "the Rook".

Satellite station "SNARK" allows to arrange access to the satellite network Ku-band almost in any point of Russia. Immediately after deployment, and guidance you can connect to the Internet or corporate network, to receive and transmit data, organize audio and video conferencing, to carry out the streaming.

Reference: R-444-Fri Ladya provide a noise free telephone and video-conferencing, data transfer speeds up to 256 Kbps and packet exchange in IP networks. The weight of the R-444-Fri only 28 kg. It consists of a container, a suitcase with a foldable parabolic dish, another smaller container, remote control, touch screen and headset. Due to this station can operate at the tactical level. The previous generation system had to be installed on truck chassis. Time of Autonomous work stations is not less than 2.5 hours in continuous mode.

The Park of military equipment of the 2nd guards combined arms army of the CVO in the Volga region made up 49 per cent over the last 8 years, only in 2018 the army under a state defense order received more than 200 pieces of equipment.

Over the past five years in the military units of the CVO received more than 1000 digital means of communication of the sixth generation. This was announced by acting chief of communications – Deputy chief of staff of the AOC at the Lieutenant Colonel Victor Didenko.

This year there have been 148 samples of modern small satellite communication stations and automated control systems, such as R-444-STP, R-438М, P-187-P-1 "Passion", which is currently used in reconnaissance units and special forces.

Reference: This equipment is designed for networking satellite communication systems in the interests of parts and units operating in isolation from the main forces through a repeater connection of the spacecraft. Data transfer rate is 1200 or 2400 bits/sec. The advantages of satellite communication is a large range of stable relationships, including in areas with difficult terrain, regardless of weather conditions, time of day and year, as well as high resizewindow.

The Russian military communications system that allows two to three times faster to manage the troops, said the chief of communications — Deputy chief of the General staff of the army liaison Alexander Gargas.

The decision on the supply of connections of Land forces under the state program of armaments and state defense order modern command and staff vehicles, integrated communication complexes of communication and automation, and means of destruction, equipped with modern program-technical complexes, which allow to build a control system, functioning in a single information space.
