Russia’s Strategic Missile Forces to Go All-Digital by 2020

The Russian Strategic Missile Forces will completely switch to digital data transmission technologies by 2020, spokesperson of the Defense Ministry Maj. Dmitry Andreev told journalists.

“With the current pace of modernization in the armed forces, communication systems will be all-digital by 2020,” Andreev said.

“The Strategic Missile Forces have received modern telecommunication equipment, including digital radio relay devices, automatic phone stations for confidential and non-confidential communications as well as local computing segments of the defense ministry’s confidential network,” Andreev added.
