“I want the pen to be equated with the bayonet” – the results of the International Military and Technical Forum “Army 2020”admin
The 6th International Military-Technical Forum “Army-2020” took place. This year, 1.49 million people attended the forum. Traditionally, samples of the latest weapons and military equipment were presented here, and the main feature of this year was products used in the fight against coronavirus. Access to the forum was possible only wearing a medical mask or respirator.
At such exhibitions, spectacular exhibits – tanks, anti-missile systems, helicopters, etc. involuntarily draw the eyes of visitors. Even an experienced visitor has difficulty in seeing and evaluating the stands of manufacturers of the element base for this magnificence. Nevertheless, the stand of ASTRON Technology Ltd. traditionally aroused interest among the guests of the Forum. The company presented, for example, microcryogenic systems (MCS) – micromodules for cooling night vision devices, consisting of piston machines and heat exchangers in the form of a single assembly.

This class MCS is a high-precision mechanism, the details of which are made with an accuracy of 0.1 μm and a repeatability of 1 μm. The MCS maintains the preset temperature of the module in a stationary mode (around the temperature of liquid nitrogen). Without the MCS, even the latest tank will be “blind” in modern combat. This year, a full range of Russian MCSs were presented, operating on a closed reverse thermogasdynamic regenerative Stirling cycle with internal heat recovery. These are 4 types of integral and differential MCS with cooling capacity of 400, 500, 750 mW.

To make as many specialists as possible aware of the state of affairs in this area, the specialists of ASTROHN Technology Ltd. do best to write about their developments. At the exhibition, our employees met both with the editors of special professional periodicals (Photonics) and with employees of general periodicals (Arsenal, etc.). Agreements on close cooperation have been confirmed.

Also, the Forum media widely covered the company’s activities. For example, the SHOW-DAILY “International Military-Technical Forum “ARMY-2020” twice introduced the company’s stand to visitors, and Promyshlennyi Ezhenedelnik devoted a long article to the work of ASTROHN Technology Ltd.

Despite all the epidemiological difficulties of 2020, “Army” became one of the largest and most spectacular events of the year, and the stand of ASTROHN Technology Ltd. ranked high at the Forum and in the memory of visitors.
