Russia’s Strategic Missile Forces (RVSN) are introducing fourth generation automated control systems with triple-redundant communication links, the service’s head Lt Gen. Sergey Karakayev said on Thursday.
The new automated control systems are based on digital alert transmission systems. “The RSVN is currently introducing fourth generation automated control systems. Each system will have guaranteed triple communications redundancy,” Karakayev said in an interview in Izvestia newspaper.
Karakayev said that the importance of command and control links increased as strategic nuclear launch systems aged.
