An exhibition of state-of-the-art weapons and military equipment for missile troops and artillery was held on April 27 at the military base of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Devichki village, Kiev Region. Petro Poroshenko, President of Ukraine, and Stepan Poltorak, Minister of Defense, inspected the advanced weaponry. 

We are also happy to point out that the ArtOS gun-fire control software system was among the advanced weapons. This project was designed and implemented at Noosphere Engineering School under guidance of Yaroslav Sherstyuk, a staff officer with the development department for rocket troops and artillery with the Armed Forces of Ukraine. It allows artillery units to optimize gun-troop-battery performance and substantially to reduce the time artillery troops need to carry out military operations. 

"A distinctive feature of ArtOS, which was highly valued by the command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, is the "gunner terminal" GDDS (gunner data display system). GDDS is a special block, displaying the gun targeting data. It is connected to a tablet that is adapted to field conditions: crash-resistance and hermetical sealing as well as retaining a battery charge for about a week", said Yaroslav Sherstyuk, mastermind and design engineer of ArtOS.

Earlier Yaroslav Sherstyuk demonstrated the ArtOS software system to Vyacheslav Gorbylov, Major General and Commander of the missile troops and artillery of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.  It was held at the Rovno military training ground with a howitzer battery D-30 from the 24th Separate assault battalion “Aidar”. During the demonstration classes the battery showed superior results performance during fire tasks.

Five ArtOS sets have already been delivered to the Ukrainian army: the 55th Separate artillery brigade named after Colonel-General Vasiliy Petrov and the 93rd Separate mechanized brigade.

For more details about the demonstration of the system, watch the video from TV-channel "112" (on April 27, starting at 7:40 min).
