“MiG” has Developed Automated g-load Limit Control System
Engineers of “MiG” Corporation have received a patent for intelligent system for highly maneuverable combat aircraft protection against going beyond critical g-loads. The new development will enhance flight safety and allow the pilot to conduct intensive air combat, without paying attention to the instrument panel. The technology will be used for MiG-29M/M2 and MiG-35 aircraft. “Increasing of automation, ease of operation and flight safety – is our priority for customers of existing and prospective “MiG” aircraft. The new automated intelligent g-load limit control system is being integrated in our modern aircraft,” said “MiG” Corporation Director General, Ilya Tarasenko.
Modern multirole “4++” and “5” generation aircraft enable to carry out assigned missions at g-loads up to 9G. When a pilot performs a highly maneuvrings air combat, he must monitor flight modes on the instrument panel displays. The new automated system combined with “MiG” helmet mounted target designation system allows the pilot to concentrate on combat mission and maintain high maneuverability without rechecking of the flight data. The new system also allows options of critical g-load increase at the range of 1-2G by applying of additional force on the aircraft control stick as well as the system temporary or complete switch-off.
