Abstract. One of the directions of effective solution of the task of improving the quality of operation of long-range radar stations is continuous monitoring of the stability of parameters of functional radar systems to assess the real technical condition of the product, and, consequently, the parameters of its reliability. The results of monitoring data processing can be used to predict changes in the technical condition parameters, which allow operating the product before the appearance of signs of a dangerous decrease in reliability, while eliminating the premature removal of assemblies and units, as well as other labor-intensive work, which is often of dubious usefulness for the reliability of radar operation. The article suggests the method of evaluating functional characteristics of functional-algorithmic systems of long-range radar stations based on the application of continuum processors, which combine logical and computational capabilities of continuous parametric evaluation of the functional system state. The proposed alternative to the built-in digital control systems provides operational processing of sensor information at all levels of structural and functional division of equipment. The main task of such a system is to redistribute the computational load between computing devices distributed in the design hierarchy, which have much less constructive and functional complexity than digital processors, do not require labor-intensive software development and increase the reliability of functional control systems.

Keywords: functional systems, technical status, continuum processors, embedded control, prediction.
