Development of control panel of aircraft radar


I.V. Charykov – Engineer, JSC «Concern «VEGA». E-mail: V.S. Chikachyov – Engineer, JSC «Concern «VEGA» E-mail:

Control panel is an important part of radar, it’s designed to execute the following functions: control of switch on radars; control of modes of channels APAR; visual check of radar status by indication. In work review operation the remote control and the device for its validation. Control panel is located at the seat of radar operator, resulting in increase demands on ergonomics and technical aesthetics. Unlike the previous design, the front side has a negative slope for easy reading of the information operator. To reduce eye strain of operator is adjustable brightness of displays and indicators with a potentiometer. Another difference from the previous control panel it is the current angle of rotation of the antenna. If previously used selsyn receiver, now it's digital with display. The console design is developed taking into account the fact that it must be durable, resistant and resistant to external mechanical, thermal and climatic influences. Continuous operation time control – 16 hours. The MTBF should be at least 40000 hours, and the assigned resource – 30000 flight hours during the design life of 30 years. Following the requirement of import substitution, the development of the panel is used on domestic element base. For acceptance and periodic testing is developed technological equipment: a device for checking the angle of the antenna, cables. This equipment will check the control panel as soon as possible and, if necessary, to identify the causes of failure. Thus, the proposed implementation of control panel of radar patrol aircraft is a high-tech, with modern requirements of ergonomics and industrial design, convenient and reliable in operation.
