Russia began to produce over-the-horizon stations for the civilian market

In the Russian Federation, for the first time for the civilian market, the production of over-the-horizon communication stations "Groza" began with

operating range of more than 200 kilometers, reportsRIA Novosti with reference to the press service of Roselectronics. Previously, these technologies were used only for military purposes. The stations use the principle of signal reflection from the troposphere - the lower layer of the atmosphere, this allows you to transmit data to subscribers beyond the horizon. We wrote more about the technology here.

"Roselectronics Holding" of the State Corporation "Rostec"with the support of the Industrial Development Fund, launched the production of Groza tropospheric communication stations with a high-speed digital modem based on neural networks. The equipment makes it possible to provide communication within a radius of 210 kilometers in mountainous, hard-to-reach and sparsely populated areas, along highways and railways, as well as at remote industrial facilities,” the press service said. Production is deployed at the Krasnoyarsk NPP Radiosvyaz (part of Ruselectronics) with a preferential loan of 335 million rubles from the Industrial Development Fund. Thunderstorm is capable of transmitting data at speeds up to 25 Mbps in tropospheric communication mode and up to 155 Mbps in microwave communication mode.
