E95 ground launch small-size aerial target system
E95 is designed for troop training and deployment (trials) of air defence systems. E95M target is a simulator of evading targets such as remotely-piloted aerial vehicles, cruising controlled air bombs, aircraft shaped missiles and, in certain cases, airplanes and helicopters of tactical and army aviation.
The system is completely self-contained and does not require any additional technical support equipment.
Assembly and disassembly of E95M target, opening and closing of hatches, installation in the catapult, connection of electric, pneumatic and fuel lines, and parachute packing are performed without a special tool using quick-release connections.
The target engine has no moving parts, does not require maintenance, and is resistant to dust, dirt and atmospheric precipitation.
The system combat crew consists of 6 specialists — command pilot, ground control station operator, aircraft and electronic equipment operator, BD and launching installation operator, and two driver mechanics.
High qualification of operators is not required, engineering training is only required from the command pilot of the combat crew and GCS operator.
Operation of the system requires availability of a 50-70 sq. m heated facility with 220 V power supply source for establishment of the technical position (preliminary preparation of targets, drying and packing of parachutes, minor repair of components).
Aerial target Е95М
Aerial target Е95М is a small-size aerial vehicle equipped with reflection augmenters (scattering cross section).
