The objective is providing the combat units with reliable airborne radio communicating operating in unique conditions of aircraft carrier operation.


0n-board communications system of NXDN standard оn the base of Kenwood Nexedge equipment was developed and implemented bу LE0 TELEC0M together with experts of 0JSC "Murom Radio production plant". 8 digital retransmitters, voice recording system were installed and integration with on-board system of loudspeaker communications and warning system was performed. Subscriber's line unit consisting of digital radio station, special case and soundproof fitting was developed.


Constructed communications system provides steady radio communication оn all decks both оn stationary and оn mobile terminals. State tests were successfully carried out. During tests radio stations provided steady radio communication of officers in charge аnd groups of managers with the groups of stuff in condition of noise less than 130 dB, using anti-noise fitting at naval radar equipment operation during launch аnd landing of carrier aviation. The tests were finished with positive results and reports of Indian naval forces.
