Teams from 4 countries are taking part in the contest
TEAM (17 PERSONS)

AD battalion squad – 7 persons
Launching squad – 4 persons
RESULTS OF «KEYS TO THE SKY» CONTEST
DEFEATING A SIMULATED ADVERSARY ATTACK WITH A
SIMULATION LAUNCH OF AD GUIDED MISSILES

CONDITIONS
Each team gets 80 points before the beginning of the competition (Sb).

Penalty points are subtracted from the initial number of points for the mistakes in the work of the crews conducting the air defense combat.
PENALTIES

Penalty points calculation for antiaircraft combat with simulated antiaircraft missiles launching for AAMS CP Sp ams is made according to the following formula:

Sp ams = S1+ S2 + S3

PENALTIES
Penalty points calculation for antiaircraft combat with simulated antiaircraft missiles launching for AAMS CP Sp amb is made according to the following formula:

Sp amb = S1 + S2 + S3 + S4 + S5 + S6 + S7

RESULTS

Time for air defence combat with imitated ADGM launch is calculated according to the following formula:
Stotal = Sb - Sp ams - Sp amb
COMPETITION AMONG MULTIAXIS CHASSIS DRIVERS

CONDITIONS
The time for carrying out the exercise is increased by the penalty time got for mistakes. The total time for the competition (Ttotal) is a sum of the time for carrying out exercise №1 (Tdrv1), exercise №2 (Tdrv2) and the penalty time got for mistakes.
PENALTIES
Multiaxis chassis driving time calculation is done according to the following formula:

Ttotal = Tdrv.1 + Tdrv.2 + T1 + T2 + T3 + + T4 + T5

RESULTS
The first place is given to the team with the shortest time.
The final result of a participant for piloting a multiaxis chassis can vary:
COMBAT UNITS DEFEAT A SIMULATED ADVERSARY ATTACK
DESIGNATED BY REAL AIRCRAFT UNITS
WITH A SIMULATION LAUNCH OF AD GUIDED MISSILES

CONDITIONS
Each team is given 90 points before starting the competition.

Penalty points are subtracted from the given 90 points for the team's mistakes while conducting the combat.
PENALTIES
Penalty points calculation for antiaircraft combat with simulated antiaircraft missiles launching for AAMS Sp ams is made by the following formula:

Sp ams = S1 + S2 + S3

PENALTIES
Penalty points calculation for antiaircraft combat with simulated antiaircraft missiles launching for AAMS CP Sp amb is made according to the following formula:

Sp amb = S1 + S2 + S3 + S4 + S5 +
+ S6 + S7

RESULTS
The team's total point (Stotal) for antiaircraft combat with simulated antiaircraft missiles launch is calculated by the following formula: Stotal = Sb – Sp ams – Sp amb
LAUNCHER LOADING COMPETITION

CONDITIONS
The result of launcher loading is estimated considering the mistakes made while doing the exercise.

The total time of doing the exercise (Ttotal) is made up by adding the loading time (Tload) and the penalty time for the mistakes made during the operations.
PENALTIES
Launcher loading time is calculated by the following formula:

Ttotal = Тload + Т1 + Т2

RESULTS
The first place is given to a team with the shortest time.
The final result for launcher loading can vary:
AD SQUADRON MANEUVER

CONDITIONS
The total time of doing the exercise (Ttotal) is made up by adding the illuminating and guidance radar and launcher transfer to camping time (Ttransfer to camp.); march performance time (Tmarch); the illuminating and guidance radar and launcher transfer to combat time (Ttransfer to comb.); time of antiaircraft missile orientation and components connection (Torient.) and the penalty time for making mistakes during the operations.
PENALTIES The time of doing the exercise is calculated by the following formula:

Ttotal = Ttransfer to camp. + Tmarch + + Ttransfer to comb.+ Torient. + Т1 + Т2+ + Т3 + Т4

RESULTS
The first place is given to a team with the shortest time. The final result for the illuminating and guidance radar and launcher transfer to camping (combat) can vary:
COMBAT UNITS DEFEAT AN ADVERSARY ATTACK WITH COMBAT LAUNCHES OF AD STAGE GUIDED MISSILES

CONDITIONS
The winner in nominated by considering the results of carrying out combat at missile target. The first of the two antiaircraft battalions that hits the target is considered to be the winner and passes on to the next round of the competitions.

There are only 3 rounds, four episodes of combat shooting.
RESULTS
The final result for conducting the antiaircraft combat with antiaircraft missiles combat launches can vary:
