The RSBN-4NM has been a game-changer in the realm of aerial warfare, providing Russian aircraft with unparalleled navigational capabilities. The head of the short-range navigation system elaborated on its functionality, stating, "This system allows the aircraft to determine its location with remarkable precision." This capability is critical in the complex and dynamic environment of aerial combat, where accurate location data is essential for effective mission planning and execution.

The use of such advanced technology highlights the evolving nature of modern warfare, where electronic and navigation systems play a vital role in the outcome of military engagements. The RSBN-4N's deployment in Ukraine signifies a shift in tactics, focusing more on technological superiority to gain an edge in the conflict.

The RSBN-4NM is a short-range radio navigation system primarily designed for military use, though it also supports civil aviation. This system offers all-weather, round-the-clock navigation capabilities and is utilized to support air traffic control, as well as to guide aircraft to any designated point within its range. It provides continuous navigation support and plays a crucial role in ensuring accurate and reliable navigation for various types of aircraft, including bombers, fighter bombers, and transport aircraft.

Key features of the RSBN-4NM system include the continuous provision of position information to aircraft crews, automatic guidance of aircraft to prescribed points, and ground control of aircraft working with the beacon. The system consists of both onboard and ground equipment, enabling it to offer a range of functionalities such as determining polar coordinates (azimuth and distance), ground monitoring of air situations, and correction of autonomous flight path computers.

Moreover, the RSBN-4NM is known for its accuracy, which is reportedly higher than other similar systems. The format of its signals may not be specified by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), but it meets or exceeds principal specifications. Additionally, its operation is independent of visibility conditions, making it a reliable navigation aid in various weather scenarios.
