Description

The Oerlikon Skyguard III is a modernized version of the Skyguard I air defense missile/twin-cannon system. Made by Rheinmetall Air Defence, the state-of-the-art Oerlikon Skyguard III places the latest advances in technology at the disposal of Skyguard users, while maintaining the existing transport concept. Tried-and-tested air defence systems such as the Oerlikon Skyguard have to be modified to meet new threats. Designed for round-the-clock, network-enabled operations in all weathers, the Oerlikon Skyguard III is the perfect answer for echeloned air defence, offering excellent protection against a wide spectrum of aerial threats, including fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters, missiles, unmanned air vehicles and precision guided missiles. The Oerlikon Skyguard III is characterized by a high degree of networkability. At the tactical and operational level, Skyguard III fire units can be linked to higher-echelon command structures. Up to three fire units can be linked to form their own network, exchanging data in near real-time and generating a uniform air situation picture. In addition, a battle management system assures extremely short reaction and engagement times. This 35mm twin gun/ Skyguard III modernization program also includes all necessary fire control functions for Ahead engagement againstFinally, using the latest high-tech components ensures efficient logistical support as well as low lifecycle costs.

Variants
- Oerlikon Skyguard I: The first variant of the Skygurad air defense system

Armament
The Skyguard III features two high-performance 35mm anti-aircraft cannon GDF 007 for short-range engagements and two guided missile launchers, giving the system greater reach. The 35mm anti-aircraft twin-gun is the weapon which is used for short range air defense against fighters, bombers and helicopters. It can also be used against unmanned aerial targets as drones, cruise missiles, dispensers, guided missiles and guided bombs. The 35mm Oerlikon twin-gun is controlled by a Fire Control Unit (FCU), but it can also be operated by a gunner in the autonomous mode. The normal burst-either from two 35 mm GDF 005 twin guns or two 35/1000 guns-consists of 25 rounds and is fired within about 0.7s. These 25 rounds contain more than 3,800 sub-projectiles.

Missiles and Ammunitions

The 35 mm Ahead system from Oerlikon Contraves is the only gun-based low-level air defence system, thoroughly tested, successfully demonstrated and readily available for defeating these threats effectively. A short burst of Ahead rounds produces a continuous saturation in the expected target position with a cloud of lethal sub-projectiles. The protection levels of today's and future targets can be penetrated by the heavy metal, spin stabilized sub-projectiles. The 35mm AHEAD (Advanced Hit Efficiency and Destruction) ammunition is designed specifically for small, very low and fast-flying targets such as drones, dispensers and missiles, and it can be used by all 35 mm guns retrofitted with the muzzle-velocity gauge and an electronic processing unit. As a comparison, a burst of HEI ammunition contains some 50-60 rounds, but the kill probability against small targets is much lower. Thus, despite its higher costs, the AHEAD round is much more cost-effective than HEI. The AHEAD round ejects a lethal shower of 152 spin-stabilized sub-projectiles, with a mass of 3.3 g each, in a cone with a io° opening angle released by each round just "ahead" of the approaching target, at a position determined by a programmable, electronic, time fuze in the base of the projectile.

The Skyguard III 35mm cannon can be coupled with the ASRAD (Advanced Short Range Air Defence System) missile.

Fire Control Unit
The Skyguard III is a multi-role air defence command and fire control system. The existing high fire control performance in the classical low level air defence is extended to counter, in addition the whole missile threat spectrum. The systems's sensor unit of the Skyguard III Fire Control Unit is highly ECM resistant, while the target detection alarm and threat evaluation is followed by automatic handover to the tracking sensors. The multi-sensor tracking unit is a combined radar plus TV/laser/IR module with high sensor dynamics for interference-free precision tracking. The Skyguard III Fire Control Unit (FCU) provides protection of high valued objects in a standalone or networked configuration. Skyguard III controls anti-aircraft guns and missile launchers against manned aircraft such as fighters, bombers and helicopters and against unmanned aerial targets, in articular fast, small missiles in a steep diving attack.

Combat use
The Ahead-system is designed to fit 35mm twin gun/Skyguard air defence systems which are in use in rather large quantities in many countries worldwide. Modifications of fielded 35mm twin gun/Skyguard fire units, for up grading them to include the Ahead anti-missile capability, depending on their standard of build, may be done in the customer country. The fielded 35mm twin gun/Skyguard fire units must be modernized to cope with the new specific characteristics of 21st century air threats. This 35mm twin gun/ Skyguard III modernization program also includes all necessary fire control functions for Ahead engagement against small, fast and steep attacking missile targets in respect to elevation coverage, detection range and ECCM. The 35mm twin gun/Skyguard III fire units in a tactical deployment can be integrated into a C4I system and/or networked together to form a network. For such a network up to three Skyguard III fire units can be located at separation distances of up to 3 km. By means of a fast exchange of search and track data, a common air situation is built up and instantaneously shared among all the netted fire units. The evalutation of the common air situation enables an optimized battle management of the available trackers and weapons and provides an overall protection shield. The data transfer is based on near real-time data exchange.

RHEINMETALL AIR DEFENCE ANUNCIO DOS CONTRATOS RECIENTEMENTE

25 Jul 2017
Rheinmetall wins major new air defence orders

Worth a total of €220 million

Rheinmetall has recently booked two important air defence orders, winning a new customer country in the process. Two foreign governments have ordered air defence hardware and related services for their air forces. Total value of the two orders comes to around

€220 million. In both cases, Rheinmetall had to overcome stiff international competition. The orders were booked in June this year. Delivery will take place through to 2021.

The new customer country has ordered two Skyguard 3 air defence systems. This is a third-generation system optimized for protecting critical facilities and infrastructure from current and future threats at very short ranges. Each system consists of a Skyguard 3 fire control unit as well as two 35mm Oerlikon Twin Gun GDF009 automatic cannons. The same country is expected to place additional orders in the medium term.

Another nation – already a longstanding customer – has now opted to add 35mm Skyguard 1 fire units to its inventory. The order also encompasses 35mm ammunition, simulators, related test equipment as well as training on location. Here too, follow-on orders are expected to come within the next five years.

Rheinmetall is one of the world’s foremost makers of sophisticated air defence systems for short-range applications. The company is the market leader in gun-based air defence, and the sole single source supplier of fire control technology, guns, integrated guided missile launchers and special Ahead airburst ammunition.

The Group’s tried-and-tested 35mm Skyshield technology sets the unsurpassed global standard, particularly when it comes to protecting sensitive civilian sites and critical infrastructure from terrorist threats.

Developed by Rheinmetall on behalf of the German Bundeswehr, the Mantis air defence system is the most advanced system of its kind anywhere. First deployed in 2014, it is able to protect military installations and forward operating bases from incoming rocket, artillery and mortar fire.

Algo así usó Argentina en Malvinas y bajó unos harriers. En mi opinión este sistema es ideal por su alta movilidad y eficiencia y sería el inicio de una red AA en México

Solo que la diferencia de los que se usaron en Malvinas estos son automatizados o dirigidos desde consolas y por medio del radar.

Y DE HECHO NO SE CONSIDERA COMO UNA SEGUNDA PLANTA NUCLEAR...

SE CONSIDERA COMO UNA EXTENSIÓN, Y MODERNIZACIÓN DE LA PRIMERA, YA QUE INCLUSO SE CONTEMPLA LA SUSTITUCIÓN DEL REACTOR NUCLEAR POR UNO NUEVO.

Y DE TODOS MODOS, HAY MUCHAS TRABAS, Y NO HAY PARA CUANDO LA HAGAN, PORQUE POR CUESTIONES AMBIENTALISTAS, YA TIENEN UN SIN FIN DE DETRACTORES Y OPOSITORES.

En realidad son mas centrales nucleares las que contempla la sener, no solo la ampliación de 2 reactores mas a laguna verde; y obviamente estas contaran con la protección de la virgencita y sus angeles por en la fam ni cazas, ni radares, ni sistemas antiaéreos, ni nada de nada...
