The latest fifth-generation Su-57 fighters are being assembled using new technologies and augmented reality elements

The General Director of the State Corporation Rostec visited the enterprise of UAC KnAAZ named after. Yu.A. Gagarin, where the production of Su-57 fighters is currently being increased.

This is due to the introduction of modern production methods, the construction of new facilities and the purchase of modern equipment. The company has created a production line in the final assembly shops, which allows to reduce the cycle of manufacturing products by 30%. A project has been developed to introduce elements of augmented reality, which will increase the accuracy of technological operations and reduce the duration of their implementation.

Also commissioned cooling center for special coatingsreducing the visibility of the aircraft. About 300 special stands and panels for testing the Su-57 have been manufactured at the plant, and high-precision equipment has been purchased, which makes it possible to improve quality and reduce the time for manufacturing parts.

“This year, the Russian Aerospace Forces will receive new Su-57 fighters, they are in a high degree of readiness, and in the future the pace of production of these fighters will be increased. We understand how important this work is, so the plant is actively expanding and modernizing to increase production of the Su-57. At the moment, KnAAZ is loaded with orders until 2028,” said Sergey Chemezov.

In August, new facilities were laid at the enterprise for testing fighter systems and equipment. First of all, a boathouse for testing on-board radio-electronic equipment, a fuel box and an updated engine test station will be built, which will receive the first aircraft in the second half of 2023. In the future, the enterprise will build a new building for the Su-57 at the flight test station, the third stage of electroplating production. The facilities for machining and heat treatment will also be reconstructed.

Su-57 is a fifth-generation multirole fighter. Created using stealth technologies, it can carry weapons in the internal fuselage compartments. It has supersonic cruising speed, is capable of maneuvering with high overloads, and is equipped with advanced electronics. Composite materials are widely used in the airframe design.
