In the Brest region of the Republic of Belarus, servicemen of the topographic service of the Guards Tank Red Banner Army of the Western Military District tested the newest unified software system of three-dimensional visualization “Kaleidoscope” as part of the joint strategic exercise “West-2021”.

Topographers of the tank formation have recreated a detailed terrain model with a three-dimensional visualization of the terrain. The latest software system made it possible to simulate the combat actions of the allied forces with a conditional enemy. The Kaleidoscope system allowed military topographers to create a three-dimensional visualization of the virtual combat space for a more accurate assessment of the situation on the battlefield and faster decision-making by the command of the formation.

In total, during the exercise, the topographers of the tank formation created more than 50 special maps, three-dimensional terrain models and photo schemes. Military topographers provide topographic and geodetic preparation for artillery units using the 1T134M topographic surveyor. Servicemen of the topographic service quickly tie firing positions to the terrain and allow aiming of rocket launchers and cannon artillery with higher accuracy.

The joint strategic exercise (SSU) of the armed forces of the Russian Federation and the Republic of Belarus is held every two years in accordance with the decision made by the heads of the two states.

Exercise “West-2021” is the final stage of joint training of the armed forces of the Republic of Belarus and the Russian Federation this year.

Practical actions of troops (forces) take place from 10 to 16 September 2021 at nine training grounds located on the territory of the Russian Federation, in the waters of the Baltic Sea, as well as at five training grounds of the armed forces of the Republic of Belarus.

In total, up to 200 thousand personnel, about 80 aircraft and helicopters, up to 760 units of military equipment, including 290 tanks, 240 guns, multiple launch rocket systems, take part in the SSU “West-2021” on the territory of the Russian Federation and the Republic of Belarus and mortars, as well as up to 15 ships.

The maximum number of personnel of military units involved in training, subject to the Vienna Document 2011, on the territory of the Russian Federation does not exceed 6400 military personnel.

The return of military command and control bodies and troops to the points of permanent deployment after participation in the exercise is planned until mid-October of this year.
