TRUST-SYSTEM 22 ANECHOIC II - Radio Phase










TRUST-SYSTEM 15, TRUST-SYSTEM 21, and TRUST-SYSTEM 22 are projects which point to a possible path, that of the mastering of potential tools of war - in the case of SYSTEM 15 in the form of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV's - usually used as target drones or intelligence platforms) and in the case of SYSTEM 21 and SYSTEM 22 of a stealth missile (APACHE family - STORM SHADOW, SCALP EG) for civil tactical broadcast, civil intelligence gathering purposes, high speed evasion and tactical transmitter distribution. It is a work that implements the so-called "conversion" concept, much discussed in the framework of the conversion of former Soviet military industries to civilian uses.

The work is a partial presentation of a process conducted by the artist and his organization Projekt Atol from 1995 onwards, which is based on communication with the industries involved in manufacturing components for military and defence applications. Among other things, Projekt Atol researched how some of these components could be used in a manner, and implemented in a system, that they were not primarily designed for in what we could define as a civil tactical field.

The TRUST-SYSTEM 22 platform is designed to be an autonomous unmanned high speed aerial vehicle, directed by satellite and inertial guidance, and designed to operate safely in controlled and uncontrolled airspace at day and night and under all weather conditions. It includes the following operational components:

- an FM radio transmitting and receiving system with memory modules for up to 6 hours of programming
- signals analysis and classification module
- a noise and jamming module with electronic countermeasures capability
- a simple low resolution intelligence imaging system
- video and data telemetry
- autonomous guidance and semi-autonomous guidance systems
- transmitter modules container and ballistic distribution system
- simple and rugged airframes
- economical and standard issue powerplant
- mobile control and guidance ground unit

The flying system would be deployed in hostile areas and areas where free and independent media are severely challenged. The vehicle would be controlled via an UHF high speed near-line-of-sight data link and commercial satellite links and would include a ballistic parachute system for safety and recovery reasons.

TRUST-SYSTEM 22 is an installation and an ambiental space presenting partial results of this research, possible implementation modalities and problems involved with such development. The first flight of the TRUST-SYSTEM 21-22 platform prototype is expected in 2005 in the skies over the Balkans.
