    An aerosol generator is designed for creating aerosol curtains, or artificial clouds, to hide road-mobile missile complexes, according to Aleksei Solodovnikov, a lecturer at the Peter the Great Strategic Missile Forces College.

    KUBINKA (Moscow Region) (Sputnik) — Russian experts have developed and successfully tested a device designed to conceal missile systems with an aerosol cloud, a lecturer at the Peter the Great Strategic Missile Forces College said Tuesday.

    "An aerosol generator…is designed for creating aerosol curtains, or artificial clouds, to hide road-mobile missile complexes," Aleksei Solodovnikov told journalists during an Innovation Day exhibition.

    According to Solodovnikov, the generator is capable of producing aerosol compounds, mainly small dispersed particles, to conceal missiles from satellite observation.

    The aerosol cloud can conceal RS-24 Yars, Topol and Topol-M ballistic missiles. The unique generator is portable, lightweight and reusable, Solodovnikov said.

    The device may be used as a heat source to warm facilities with equipment, for full specific processing of missiles and decontamination. It is also applicable for a number of civil purposes, including the killing of harmful insects.
