The ABRIS is one of the two navigation systems of the KA-50. It uses a graphical display and is also known as the Advanced Moving Map System. It operates independently of the PVI-800 with the exception of the graphical representation of a PVI-800 navigation target in the ABRIS as a blue square. The basis of the ABRIS positioning is the Russian satellite navigation system, GLONASS. The ABRIS can be used to plan the flight route as well as to display target information from other KA-50 by means of a data link. The viewing direction and the distance in which the Shkval points are also displayed.

Continuously Computed Impact Point.
This is a calculated visual drop mode with manual weapon release. This mode allows a high degree of flexibility as the point on the ground where the weapon will hit is continuously indicated by a CCIP crosshair on the HUD. It is not necessary to lock the target. Simply put; bring the thing over the thing and drop the bomb.
