|Combat information and control systems|
The Lama-EKM automated information and control system (AICS) is intended for automation of the control processes of combat and routine activities of a diesel submarine by means of automated acquisition, processing and visual representation of the data on the environment, issuing and representation of the recommendations for evaluation of the environment and making the reasoned decisions on control of the diesel submarine and use of the weapons. It is also intended for control of launchers, data generation and their automated input into the weapons.
As regards the AICS structure, it is a multi-level hierarchical control system based upon a set of local data exchange networks.
The central control console ensures control of implementation of all the AICS tasks.
Effectiveness of control of the Lama-EKM AICS tasks implementation processes is ensured by a powerful multi-featured system of information support and service aids for operators to work with:
High operational efficiency of the Lama-EKM AICS is achieved by a large number of multi-featured functional tasks of control that are used both separately and in various combinations, depending upon the peculiarities of the environment, the operative and tactical situation and the tasks being solved by a diesel-electric submarine.
The Lama-EKM AICS is the first system to combine the possibilities of control of all kinds of weapons on board the submarine, as well as status monitoring and control of the set of torpedo tubes.
The Lama-EKM AICS has been serially manufactured by Avrora Scientific and Production Association JSC since 1999.
For the time being several Lama-EKM systems have been supplied and they are successfully operated, their service life being from 3 to 6 years.
In the Lama-EKM AICS the requirements specified in the contract are implemented in the full scope, it operates reliably under the conditions of harsh environment, it has been developed on the high scientific and technical level and it is able to compete with the similar systems of the foreign make in the world market. AICS has a large potential for adaptation in accordance with the requirements of the particular customer, and the multilingual interface as well.
The system is supplied after the tests conducted on the specialized test bench of Avrora Scientific and Production Association JSC, which includes the software and hardware, as well as specialized equipment that enables to perform a full-scope check of the system for functioning.
For training the personnel of the Customer to operate and attend the system, a trainer complex is available that is developed by Avrora Scientific and Production Association JSC.
Purpose: Automated information and control system (AICS) LAMA-EKM is intended for automation of combat activities on board diesel-electric submarines of 877EKM and 636 projects.
AICS ensures carrying-out the following functions:
AICS is interfaced with:
Warranty and service maintenance:
The warranty period for the system is 12 months from the date of its putting into operation.
During the warranty period, service maintenance of the system is ensured by the specialists of Avrora Scientific and Production Association JSC.
