The article presents the basics of technology and methods of the multipurpose integrated radio-electronic systems (MIRES), which is the part of the avionics complex of the aircraft, acting as a radar, electronic support measure (ESM) and radio-electronic suppression (RES) the article presents. The structure and description of the developed of complex of programs that implements the technology of synthesis, a list of initial data for calculation, the output characteristics and parameters, the appearance of the input and output panels are presented. The main purpose of the complex programs - to help the skilled user to create the implemented requirements of the tactical and technical task (TTT) for the development of the MIRES. Among the initial data: task data MIRES, on objects and conditions of operation, the requirements of the system, the restrictions imposed on the MIRES on weight and size, power consumption and cost, a priori data on the characteristics of elements of the MIRES, the data on the generation of alternatives and conduct the search of the optimum. Among the output data: structural-technical parameters (STP) and tactical-technical characteristics (TTC) elements acting as a radar, ESM and RES, the resulting values of the efficiency of the MIRES, cost and power consumption of the system, the calculation time.
As an example, the chart shows the results of the synthesis of the MIRES aircraft, for various options layout and integration of the system. The conclusions about the preference of either option.
The efficiency of complex of programs of the synthesis offered MIRES valued at the time that must be expended on the process substantiation of optimum TTC and STP MIRES, the number of analyzed options, accuracy of estimates and additional opportunities. Expressions are given for the evaluation of the first of the above indicators. Time the total synthesis of the MIRES consists of the preparation of the input data to perform the synthesis, test time software system, the time computation and time analysis of finite results. It is shown that the average time for a complete synthesis of a few tens of hours, the number of options analyzed about two dozen orders of magnitude estimation error TTC and STP MIRES does not exceed ten percent.
The conclusion is that the set of complex of programs can be used by organizations that form the requirements for the development of TTT aircraft and their avionics, as well as directly by the organizations – the designers MIRES.
