As part of the joint strategic exercise (SSU) of the armed forces of the Russian Federation and the Republic of Belarus “West-2021”, a multi-level intelligence system was created in the Nizhny Novgorod region. It was prepared by specialists from the units of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) of the Western Military District (ZVO).

Air grouping UAVs “Orlan-10”, “Takhion”, “Forpost” allows continuous aerial reconnaissance. Acting in conjunction with the “Strelets” intelligence complex for command and control (KRUS) equipped with the GLONASS satellite navigation system, unmanned aerial vehicles effectively ensure the identification of detected objects, the calculation of their coordinates, and target designation.

KRUS “Strelets” allows mobile reconnaissance elements equipped with a “friend or foe” identification system to interface with all domestic reconnaissance means, radars and aiming devices.

At the tactical level, the “Irony” optoelectronic complex operates. Its use makes it possible to conduct visual reconnaissance around the clock and in any weather and transmit coordinates to fire weapons to destroy weapons, military equipment and objects of a simulated enemy.
