MOSCOW, August 1 (RIA Novosti) - Russian high-tech corporation Rostec has created a unique sixth-generation radio communication system called Chance, which it will present at the Russian Defense Ministry’s Innovation Day, the company’s press-service said in a statement on Friday.
According to the Rostec statement, the Chance communication system is part of the army’s automated communication and control systems. Chance was built, using software-defined radio technology, and can create a self-organizing, auto-restorable network with almost no involvement of an operator.
The communications system has received factory approval and in the near future is to be tested by troops.
The Chance system enables transmission of all types of messages, digital data and video information. Each operator has access to the Internet and the GLONASS and/or GPS navigation systems. The network’s radio stations are also able to eliminate noise interference.
The system consists of portable radio communication stations that can be installed in military vehicles to pass information from one operator to another.
According to the press statement, even if one radio station is destroyed, its data will be automatically picked up and saved by neighboring stations.
The Innovation Day international exhibition, organized by the Russian Defense Ministry, is to take place on August 4 - 5 near Moscow.
