Ukroboronprom has collaborated with PJSC Motor Sich and various other private enterprises of Ukraine’s defence sector to develop gyrostabilising platforms.

The Barrier rocket management channel was installed on the gyrostabilising platforms to be used on military helicopters of type Mi.

Ukroboronprom’s enterprises have so far created two gyrostabilising platforms for Mi-type helicopters.

Platforms can be used for the purposeful targeting of guided missiles of the Barrier-B missile complex and the development of the laser helicopter channel Luch DCCB.

Ukroboronprom general director Pavlo Bukin said: “Today, the Zaporizhzhya Enterprise has developed a programme for the creation of Ukrainian combat helicopters, and I am convinced that in close cooperation with the companies of the aviation cluster of the concern, as well as with other defence private enterprises, it is possible to achieve qualitative results and create a reliable combat vehicle.”

“The OPSN-I is equipped with optics, a thermal imager, a laser control channel and a range finder, which helps to identify targets and bring high-precision weapons to them.”

DP NVK Fotopribor developed suspension module PM-LKT, which has already passed field trials last year.

The module provides the search, detection, and recognition of ground targets such as tanks or armoured vehicles, as well as targets high precision missiles.

The State Enterprise Izyum Instrument-Making Plant partnered with other enterprises to develop an optical-target station of the new generation of the OPSN-I.

At present, the station is undergoing the first stages of testing, which is aimed at confirming its high technical characteristics.

The OPSN-I is equipped with optics, a thermal imager, a laser control channel and a range finder, which helps to identify targets and bring high-precision weapons to them.

During the plant development, the company’s specialists were guided by NATO standards and combined advanced Ukrainian and Western developments.

This optical target can be installed on aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles, armoured vehicles and ships.
