Main development trends in Russian air and space defence
Uspekhi Sovremennoi Elektroniki Journal (literal translation: Achievements in Modern Electronics Journal), Radiotekhnika Publishing, 2009

The main development issues of Russian air and space defence technology and digital components base are discussed.

Various technology (listed in detail) essential for the development of active phased array radar (APAR)

Steps needed to take for the development of a digital components base needed to build APARs

Technology (listed in detail) needed for the development of a system for the digital processing of signals and computing complexes.

Although this is not an exhaustive list, it is the authors’ contention that it will be impossible to create modern equipment capable of addressing objectives in air and space. The authors believe that a coordinated effort – one that includes research institutes, design offices and the branches of the Russian Academy of Sciences – is required. So that Russian air and space defence is developed and improved, fundamental, research and applied studies, conducted jointly by the Russian Academy of Sciences and the military-industrial complex, must serve as the beginning of the development of fundamentally new military equipment.
