The Radio-Electronic Technologies Concern (Russian acronym: KRET, a subsidiary of the Rostec state corporation) is developing the Okhotnik (Hunter) video data processing system to increase the target detection range of the Sukhoi PAK FA (T-50) fifth-generation multirole fighter jet by 50-100 percent, according to the KRET's press department.
"Okhotnik is planned to be integrated with the target sight optoelectronic systems of the fixed-wing/rotor-wing aircraft and other sophisticated military equipment. The system is intended for the electronic stabilization of the images and the detection/tracking of targets in automatic mode. Okhotnik increases the range of target acquisition in harsh environment by 50-100 percent," a KRET's spokesperson said.
According to him, the Concern has developed over 15 variants of the Okhotnik system intended for Mi-28N 'Night Hunter' (NATO reporting name: Havoc-B), Mi-8/17 (Hip/Hip-H), and Ka-52 (Hokum-B) rotor-wing aircraft, Sukhoi multirole fighter jets, naval guns, anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) systems, and self-propelled anti-aircraft gun-missile systems (SPAAGM). "The KRET Concern is developing video data processing hardware intended for an optoelectronic station of the PAK FA fifth-generation fighter," the official emphasized.
