MTK-201E monitoring system for aircraft carrier flight decks
St. Petersburg-based Television Research Institute, a subsidiary of Ruselectronics, has developed the MTK-201E TV monitoring system for flight deck operations on aircraft carriers. The system is already installed on India’s INS Vikramaditya.
The MTK-201E is intended for remote observation of aircraft taking off, landing, and moving on the flight deck. It also supports visual monitoring of the radar blind spots on the sea surface directly in front of and behind the ship.
The systems tracks incoming aircraft established on the glideslope from 5 km away in visibility conditions of not less than 10 km and within the illumination range of between 1 lx (twilight) and 100,000 lx (daytime) lx. For aircraft taking off, the range is 2 km in visibility conditions of not less than 5 km and within the illumination range of 5 lx to 100,000 lx. The system includes five rigs with c400+50 TV Line color cameras.
A Ruselectronics source told Russian Aviation Insider that the MTK-201E can be customized to perform specific tasks. Russian, Chinese, and Indian aircraft carriers could be equipped with it.
