KRET and UIMC have proposed solutions regarding the equipment of the helicopter carrier

 

Rostec Corporation holding companies, namely KRET and United Instrument Manufacturing Corporation (UIMC), have expressed their readiness to cooperate with the new buyers of the French Mistral helicopter carriers.

 

KRET is ready to equip the Mistral, previously intended for the Russian Navy, with electronic warfare defense systems.

 

Deputy Defense Minister Yuri Borisov announced that Russia is ready to supply avionics for the helicopter carrier to its future buyer, according to RIA Novosti. It has been reported that France is negotiating with Egypt for the sale of two Mistral ships that had previously been built for Russia.

 

KRET has proposed to outfit the Mistral ships with 5P28 Pobeditel electronic warfare defense systems, which can be installed on large ships such as aircraft carriers, helicopter carriers, and cruisers. The system greatly increases a ship’s survivability.

 

UIMC, another Rostec holding company, has developed communications and control systems for the Mistral and has agreed to adapt the Russian systems for Egypt.

 

According to UIMC representatives, the Russian equipment intended for the Mistral cannot be entirely sold to the new owner of the ships, as a number of elements and software programs must be removed from its communications and control systems first.

 

Registration for the re-export of this equipment is expected to take 1.5-2 months, and the adaptation of systems, components, and software for foreign customers may take another year and a half, as reported by RIA Novosti.

 

As noted by UIMC, upon their resale to a new customer, the ships themselves will need to be further developed, which will require cooperation with the Russian companies.

 

As a reminder, a contract worth 1.2 billion euros to supply Russia with two Mistral helicopter carriers was signed between the French company DCNS/STX and Rosoboronexport in 2011. France was supposed to transfer Vladivostok, the first ship, in November of last year, but did not do so because of the imposition of sanctions against Russia.

 

In early August, Moscow and Paris decided to terminate the contract for the construction and delivery of the Mistral ships. After returning all Russian equipment, France will be able to sell the helicopter carriers to another buyer.

September 14, 2015 By: George Allison

 

Russia will deliver the first Yak-130 trainer aircraft to Bangladesh this week.

 

The Yak-130 is reportedly able to replicate the characteristics of several fourth generation fighters and also perform light attack and reconnaissance duties.

 

Bangladesh is the second foreign country beyond former Soviet states to order the Yak-130 combat trainer. Algeria had received 16 of the type before it. At first, Bangladesh wanted 24 Yak-130s, but had to reconsider due to financial constraints.

 

According to Rostec Director General Sergei Chemezov: “The shipping of the first Yak-130 consignment to Bangladesh will start on September 17, with six aircraft out of the 16 ordered planes to be delivered.”

 

The aircraft were purchased with an extended loan from Russia.

United Instrument Manufacturing Corporation, OJS livrera avant 2015 dans les pays d’Amérique du Sud et les pays de l’Organisation du Traité de Sécurité Collective (OTSC) des dizaines de complexes de contrôle objectif des actions de l’équipage de blindés et de pièces d’artillerie.

 

« L’élaboration de Compass Moscow Design and Construction Bureau est prévue en premier lieu pour la formation des équipages dans le cadre de l’activité d’entraînement et militaire, – a indiqué l’adjoint du directeur général d’United Instrument Manufacturing Corporation, OJS Sergueï Skokov. – Avec son aide le commandement peut contrôler les actions et les discussions de l’équipage, suivre le temps et les coordonnées des déplacements des unités de blindés et des unités isolées de matériel – passage des limites, arrivée du matériel dans les régions prévues, déploiement des colonnes et passage à l’attaque ».

 

Comme l’a indiqué l’adjoint du directeur général de Compass Moscow Design and Construction Bureau Vladimir Masliouk, l’équipement du complexe peut être adapté pour n'importe quel type de matériel, et le poste de commande peut être situé sur une base stationnaire ou mobile, par exemple sur un châssis de KAMAZ ou de « Oural ». « Avec cela la construction et l’ergonomie des véhicules militaires n'est pas enfreinte. Le complexe correspond totalement aux exigences du Ministère de la Défense et il peut interagir avec l'appareillage radio possédé pour la transmission de données dans le Centre national de commande de la défense de Russie. Par rapport aux analogues étrangers il est plusieurs fois moins chers et il fonctionne sur des canaux séparés de communication. De plus, les appareils étrangers de ce type, en général, utilisent le standard de communication des données IEEE 802.11, plus connu comme Wi-Fi, ce qui ne permet pas de les utiliser sur le terrain », – a expliqué Vladimir Masliouk.

 

Le fonctionnement du complexe sera montré à un large public au concours international « Biathlon de chars – 2015 » ainsi qu’à l’exposition internationale d’armes et de matériel militaire Russia Arms Expo-2015.

Le holding russe de hautes technologies Rostec a conçu des éléments du "soldat du futur" permettant aux militaires de se connecter aux drones de reconnaissance.

 

Le système d'armes individuel russe (UNKV) comprend désormais des éléments permettant aux militaires de se connecter aux drones de reconnaissance, a annoncé le Holding unifié de construction des instruments de précision (OPK), membre du holding russe de hautes technologies Rostec.

 

"Les équipements faisant partie d'UNKV permettent au militaire d'être relié aux réseaux locaux de commandement et d'échange de données, aux systèmes de navigation par satellites GLONASS/GPS, donnent l'accès à distance aux véhicules de combat, permettent de se connecter aux moyens de surveillance et de reconnaissance, notamment aux drones. La nouvelle version du système est la première où toutes les communications sont cryptées", a indiqué le groupe OPK dans un communiqué.

 

Cette année, OPK envisage de livrer un lot important de nouveaux systèmes d'armes individuels aux troupes terrestres russes. "En 2014, nous avons achevé les travaux de conception de la nouvelle version d'UNKV et commencé à livrer ces équipements à l'armée. Des livraisons importantes sont prévues pour 2015", a déclaré le directeur adjoint d'OPK Sergueï Skokov.

 

Selon lui, "la composante intellectuelle de l'équipement du soldat du futur sert à automatiser le contrôle des unités d'infanterie motorisée au niveau compagnie-section-unité-soldat et assure une intégration totale dans le système automatisé de gestion du combat. Ses éléments permettent aux soldats de coopérer, de s'orienter sur le terrain et de produire, transmettre et recevoir des données sur la situation tactique.

UIMC has developed equipment for the “soldier of the future” combat system

 

March 19, 2015 by Rostec

 

The new developments include communication, data transmission, and navigation equipment

 

United Instrument Manufacturing Corporation (UIMC), which is part of Rostec Corporation, will deliver a new modification of the universal portable kits for soldiers (UPKS) to the ground troops of the Russian Army this year. The kits include communication, data transmission, and navigation systems that enable each individual soldier to operate in a united and automatically managed combat system.

 

The universal kit for soldiers will help automatize the management of motorized infantry units at the platoon, company, and division levels while also integrating soldiers into a united and automatically managed combat control system. The kit’s components allow soldiers to communicate clearly in navigating terrain, as well as to generate, transmit, and receive data on tactical situations.

 

The UPKS includes an improved portable radio, subscriber communications device, and tactical terminal. The radio can receive and transmit both audio and data over a distance of up to 5 km through two radio networks (unit and commander). The tactical terminal and subscriber communications device facilitate automatized control, communications, and situational awareness.

 

The equipment enables soldiers to work in local management and data exchange networks, integrates with GLONASS/GPS navigation systems, provides access to the radio interface of fighting vehicles, and facilitates connectivity to various observation and intelligence resources, including reconnaissance drones. All communications channels in the updated modifications are protected by encryption.

 

“Today, high-tech components are mandatory elements of combat equipment, including radio communication, navigation devices, handheld computers, software that allows connectivity to databases, electronic cards, and the ability to solve applied problems on a tactical level. UPKS meet all of these requirements,” said Tatiana Ositskaya, chief designer of the kit.

 

According to her, using the kit will greatly simplify the decision-making process during combat conditions. For example, targeting takes only 30 seconds, the time it required between detecting a target and transferring its coordinates to the necessary weapon for firing.

 

The kit components are secured on a standard military vest. Downloading additional software modules can expand and supplement the functionality of the kid without changing its components.

The United Instrument Corporation to Help Upgrade Ilyushin Il-76

A state-of-the-art radar system made by Radio Engineering Concern Vega to be installed in the new cargo jet plane

 

09.10.2014 Rostec

 

The new Ilyushin Il-76MD-90A military cargo plane just entering series production in Ulyanovsk has completed its maiden flight. It will become the platform for a future long-range radar detection and control prototype plane, A-100. Concern Vega, which is part of the United Instrument Corporation, has developed a state-of-the-art radar system for the new plane.

 

The aircraft was airborne for 4 hours 20 minutes, during which the crew performed as many tests as possible to verify the overall handling of the new cargo jet. The new aircraft was tested for in-flight controllability and stability, the performance of engines, onboard systems and equipment. The crew had no negative comments about the aircraft, which was captained by Distinguished Test Pilot of Russia Vladimir Irinarkhov during the maiden flight, the United Aircraft Corporation reports.

 

The cargo jet has been built at Aviastar-JV and will be transferred to the G.M. Beriev Aviation R&D and Production Complex in Taganrog for fitting out and conversion to prototype of A-100, a future long-range radar detection and control aircraft. This new-generation specialty aircraft will be a replacement for the A-50 currently in service, Rossiiskaya Gazeta reports.

 

The new A-100, equipped with powerful panoramic surveillance radars and state-of-the-art computers will be capable of scanning the airspace for hundreds of kilometers in every direction, identifying targets and sending complete targeting data to anti-aircraft and anti-missile defense systems enabling them to shoot down the targets.

New-generation aircraft with these capabilities can be used as airborne command posts making it easier to control air, ground and naval groups and task forces.

 

Concern Vega has developed Premier, a state-of-the-art panoramic radar system for the new plane. The new radar system comprises a rotating antenna capable of active electronic vertical scanning and mechanical bearing scanning. The radar antenna makes one revolution every five seconds.

 

The new version of Ilyushin Il-76 is currently in production in several different variants in Ulyanovsk. The demand for Il-76s has never been stronger, according to Sergey Sergeev, the CEO of Ilyushin Designer Bureau. The Russian Defense Ministry has ordered 39 airframes in the largest order ever for the Russian aviation industry. Other ministries and agencies also have very strong interest in the aircraft: for example, the Russian Ministry for Emergencies and Disaster Response has signed a Memorandum of Understanding to acquire six Il-76 airframes. The Federal Security Service (FSB) and the Police Ministry have also confirmed their interest.

 

Design and organization of Russian series production of the new Ilyushin Il-76 MD-90A heavy military cargo jet started in 2007. It was developed to specifications of the Russian Industry and Trade Ministry and of the key customer – the Russian Ministry of Defense.

 

Sergey Artyukhov, Deputy CEO of OJSC IL for Program Management, has noted that the maiden flight of the new Il-76 MD-90A is one of the major landmark events in the company history. More than 10 airframes of the new jet constructed for different purposes are currently in the various stages of readiness in the company’s production and assembly facilities.

 

Il-76 MD-90A is a significant upgrade on the well-received Ilyushin Il-76 MD. The new aircraft’s payload has been increased to 60 metric tons, while fuel consumption has been reduced.

 

The improved performance and payload have been achieved by upgrading the wing, avionics, the undercarriage and other aircraft systems as well as by installing the more fuel-efficient and quieter fourth-generation PS-90A-76 engines to replace the older D-30KP-2 engines.

 

The new engines meet all the ICAO latest stringent requirements, enabling the Russian military cargo aircraft to fly over all European countries.

 

The new aircraft is equipped with the latest navigation complex, avionics, an automated control system, communications equipment and a glass cockpit which meet all the current and proposed international requirements for aircraft avionics.

 

With more than 1,000 Il-76s of different variants manufactured to date, this is the most mass-produced military cargo jet in the world.

KRET has for the first time entered the international ranking, companied by the authoritative American weekly Defense News. The company took 52nd place among the top 100 defense companies in the world.

In compiling the rankings, international experts took into account not only brand awareness, quality, reliability, and popularity of the companies, but also a detailed investigation into their financial performance and growth dynamics over the past few years in regard to weapons production.

Between 2011 and 2013, KRET increased its total revenue by almost one and a half, from RUB 45 billion ($1.3 billion) to RUB 77.3 billion ($2.4 billion). During this time, the value of state defense orders fulfilled by KRET increased six-fold, from RUB 6.4 billion ($179 million) to RUB 40 billion ($1.1 billion). KRET was simultaneously able to optimize fully financial flows, improving transparency and the effectiveness of enterprise expenditures. By the end of 2013, KRET had earned RUB 64.2 billion ($1.8 billion) in revenue from sales of military products, a 12.3% increase from 2012. Military products made up 76% of the concern’s total revenue for 2013.

“Today, KRET is Russia’s largest developer and supplier of integrated systems of modern electronic equipment, electronic warfare systems and equipment, and civil and military avionics. Joining the group of the top 100 defense companies in the world affirms the competitiveness of Russian electronics and demonstrates the effectiveness of the model used by Rostec Corporation to integrate leading companies of the industry under the single brand of KRET,” said KRET CEO Nikolay Kolesov.

According to Kolesov, the concern is not going to rest easy and has already started updating its development strategy. New business models will fully meet the modern requirements and changes happening in the international market. The concern is placing primary emphasis on the diversification of production, strengthening the production of civil goods, integrating scientific and technical potential and attracting world-class, qualified personnel to the concern’s businesses.

KRET has operated as a single brand  and an independent member of the international aerospace and defense markets since 2014. KRET’s products can be found in more than 30 countries around the world. Innovative developments in radar stations (RLS) developed by KRET have already been installed in 70% of all Russian fighter jets and will also be used in next-generation helicopter and airplane technologies.

At the international airshow Farnborough 2014, held last July, KRET products were praised by the world’s leading experts. The Russian manufacturer introduced some of its most advanced products in avionics systems, electronic warfare systems, and friend-or-foe identification systems. KRET demonstrated that it is competent and prepared for long-term cooperation in creating new, integrated solutions for the radio-electronics industry.

UIC will present a sixth-generation radio complex in Alabino

 

August 04, 2014 by Rostec


The sixth generation media system Shans created according to software defined radio technology will be presented at the international Days of Innovation of the Russian Defense Ministry exhibition. The Shans is a part of the automated control system of tactical level for the Army, which development is now being finalized by the United Instrument Corporation specialists.

 

“The design covers all current needs of the Russian Army, as well as its further needs,” said the CEO of UIC Alexander Yakunin. “The Shans is one of the first sixth generation systems. The software defined radio technology provides the possibility of a continuous updating of the system, and its configuration for different tasks and uses for multiple purposes. The Shans system radio stations in themselves are able to prevent the interferences thanks to the adaptation by frequency mode.”

The system includes three types of radio stations: those that can be moved with military vehicles, handhelds and portables. The basic station (transported on vehicles) can be installed in military and tracked vehicles and it is the basis for a network creation. The radio station provides compatibility both with old and modern equipment.

Les militaires recevront des senseurs individuels d’identification

 

En 2017 les militaires russes doivent recevoir des senseurs individuels «ami-ennemi». L’échange de signaux spéciaux permettra de distinguer les représentants de son camp sur le champ de bataille indépendamment de l’équipement, des moyens de camouflage, etc. Les experts notent que la propagation de ces systèmes au niveau de l’échelon tactique aidera à diminuer les pertes militaires.

 

La fabrication de systèmes d’identification pour le personnel est entrée dans le projet de création d’un cluster de recherche et de production à Kazan sous l’égide du consortium «Technologies radio-électroniques» (KRET) (КРЭТ). Le projet, après avoir reçu l’accord du vice premier ministre Dimitri Rogozine et du ministre de l’industrie et du commerce Denis Mantourov, suppose la coopération de six entreprises dont deux d’entre elles sont situées dans la capitale du Tatarstan. C’est justement là qu’il sera fabriqué l’équipement, l’étude sera réalisée dans d’autres villes.

 

Le consortium dépensera 10,6 milliards de roubles pour la coopération de six de ses entreprises et pour leur rééquipement jusqu’en 2017. Outre les senseurs pour l’infanterie et la nouvelle génération de systèmes «ami-ennemi» pour l’aviation et la flotte, le cluster fabriquera également des complexes de lutte radio-électronique et des systèmes de navigation de proximité pour les avions et les hélicoptères.

 

L’adjoint du directeur général du KRET pour la planification stratégique et la réalisation des commandes d’Etat de la défense Andreï Tiouline a parlé des plans de fabrication de nouveaux systèmes pour l’armée russe.  Selon lui, le système «ami-ennemi» pour les soldats sera réalisé sous la forme d’une application – senseur installé sur le vêtement du militaire. Il sera programmé en fonction des tâches fixées. Le Ministère de la Défense est déjà très intéressé par cette élaboration.

 

Le système antérieur « ami-ennemi » a été créé pour les pays du Pacte de Varsovie et il a été prévu pour l’identification des chars, des avions, des bateaux mais pas des personnes. «Maintenant les conflits ont souvent un caractère local et l’armement utilisé par les différentes parties est souvent produit dans un même pays. Les systèmes d’identification ne fonctionnent pas dans cette situation. Les militaires sont arrivés à la conclusion qu’il faut les compléter rapidement avec une application modifiée. Nous passons de la défense de l’objet à la défense de l’homme», – a dit Andreï Tiouline.

 

Les nouveaux senseurs peuvent entrer dans la composition de l’équipement «Ratnik» ou «Barmitsa».

 

On pourra distinguer un soldat «ami» d’un soldat «ennemi» avec le même équipement en regardant l'écran du dispositif spécial semblable à un téléphone mobile. Il affiche l’emplacement actuel du soldat sur une carte électronique et l’emplacement des forces amies.

 

Les exportateurs russes n’ont pas d’information sur la présence d’un tel système dans les troupes de l’OTAN. Les experts militaires pensent que le nombre de cas de «feu ami» dans le cadre d’opération de maintien de la paix permet de parler de son absence.

Il est prévu dans le cadre du cluster de réunir des entreprises de Kazan : le groupe de recherche et de production «Radioélectronika» V.I. Chimko et l’usine «Radiopribor». En plus, encore quatre entreprises du KRET participeront à la corporation : Institut radiotechnique de recherche scientifique de Kalouga, usine de Samara « Ecran », usine de radio Jigoulevski et groupe de production de construction d’appareils d’Oufa. Le cluster est créé comme une production d’usage mixte (civil et militaire).

 

«La recette totale attendue du cluster avant 2020 est de 18 milliards de roubles, un cinquième de cette somme provient de la part de l'identification. Ces systèmes apportent un how-Know pour le développement de la production civile – systèmes d’identification et de limitation d’accès pour le transport, le secteur de l’énergie. Six entreprises participent actuellement au projet mais nous voulons ouvrir au business privé un accès à l'équipement pour qu'il travaille en trois – huit et baisser le coût de revient de la production», - a noté Andreï Tiouline.

 

Selon le premier adjoint du président du comité pour l’industrie de la Douma d’Etat Vladimir Goutenev, il faut un strict contrôle des fuites d’information dans une entreprise où il cohabite une production militaire secrète et civile high-tech.

VSMPO-AVISMA is prepared for possible disruptions of supplies from Ukraine

 

June 20, 2014, by Rostec

 

Ilmenite reserves are enough to ensure eight months of uninterrupted operation of the company’s plants

 

The VSMPO-AVISMA Corporation, the world's largest titanium producer, has prepared for possible disruptions of supplies of raw materials due to the crisis in Ukraine. Titanium reserves will last for eight months to ensure the uninterrupted operation of the company's plants

 

Today VSMPO-AVISMA relies on Ukrainian suppliers, the Volnogorsk and Irshansk Mining and Concentration Complexes, for supplies of almost 100% of its raw materials to produce titanium sponge (ilmenite).

 

Currently, both Ukrainian factories are supplying raw materials without interruption. However, in case of possible future supply disruptions due to the situation in Ukraine, VSMPO-AVISMA has already stockpiled raw materials by filling its warehouses with Ukrainian ilmenite as a precaution. RIA Novosti reports that "there are enough supplies to ensure the continuous operation of the corporation's factories for eight months," according to Company CEO Mikhail Voevodin.

 

Mikhail Voevodin emphasized that currently the market has been flooded with ilmenite from African, Vietnamese, and Australian companies. Russia also has a titanium ore deposit in the Altai Mountains, which can guarantee the full raw material independence of VSMPO-AVISMA from any foreign suppliers.

 

"We could possibly find alternative sources of raw materials from Vietnam or Africa, for example. Due to logistics, African raw materials are one-and-a-half times more expensive. However, this will not lead to a serious increase in the cost of titanium sponge, because within the corporation ilmenite accounts for only 2% of total costs," said CEO of AVISMA.

 

VSMPO-AVISM  is the world's largest manufacturer of titanium ingots, all kinds of semi-finished titanium alloys, as well as large extruded aluminum products, semi-finished products made of alloy steel and heat-resistant nickel-based alloys. It is a subsidiary of the Rostec State Corporation.

Robotic complex "Plastun"

Robotic complex "Plastun"

 

June 17, 2014 Rostec

 

Control Systems, which is a part of the United Instrument Manufacturing Corporation, has initiated development on a project codenamed "Unicum" under an order from the Ministry of Industry and Trade. It plans to develop a software system for managing groups of robotic systems.

 

To date, robots are already quite widely used in both civilian and military applications. However, as Sergey Zhuravlev, Chief Specialist of the Division at the Company, explained, today at least one person is needed to manage each robot. The technology under development will allow for transitioning to a more rational concept: "one operator for one group of robots".

Thanks to the new software, one operator will be able to effectively manage a small group that includes multipurpose robot systems. Though the operator will control the group as a whole, the robots themselves will be responsible for distributing resources among themselves. The person can also allow the group to manage itself. The group of robots can solve problems without needing to ask permission from the operator. According to specialists at the company, this approach increases the efficiency of the robotic systems and reduces the time needed for decision-making in combat conditions.

The new technology can be applied to various robots, including both existing ones and those that will appear in the future. It is expected that the system will be able to handle multitasking, the ability to download a variety of scenarios and effectively allocate resources. The software will allow for a multiuser operating mode and distribute access rights.

Control Systems has already achieved a similar development. The company's specialists together with the researchers at the Robotics Center of Bauman Moscow State Technical University created software for two Plastun robotic systems. These machines have the ability to identify objects and determine priority objectives. They can independently hold the best firing positions, ask the operator for permission to damage targets and even destroy them on their own automatically without operator intervention.

This development was demonstrated to Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev last fall at the Russia Arms Expo-2013 exhibition. It was also shown in January of this year to Russian President Vladimir Putin at the working meeting of the Foundation for Advanced Research in Tula.

In the spring of 2014 Control Systems won a competition to create the Unicum system. The project will be completed in 2015.

Specialists from Control Systems together with developers from the Robotics Center of Bauman Moscow State Technical University will present the concept of the new development at the Innoprom International Industrial Exhibition, which will open on July 9 in Yekaterinburg as part of the exhibition of the Russian Robotics Initiative.

Control Systems is an integrated company that is a subsidiary of the United Instrument Manufacturing Corporation. Its mission is to develop the automatization and computerization of certain processes within public administration, particularly in military applications.

Chrysanthemum-S to cross Red Square


April 10, 2014 by Rostec

 

Chrysanthemum-S, the world’s only anti-tank missile system, which can hit targets without optical visibility in smoke, fog, and snow, will participate in the Victory Day parade on Red Square, as reported by the press service of the Kolomna Machine-Building Design Bureau, which developed the unique technology.

 

Chrysanthemum-S is not just a modern Russian anti-tank missile system, but also one of the world’s most powerful. Its radar and optical-laser channels allow it to detect, identify, and destroy targets in poor weather conditions. The simultaneous operation of the two channels lets the system identify separate targets and automatically launch rockets.

This technology was first introduced to the Russian army in 2005. Originally, Chrysanthemum-S was conceived of as an anti-missile system, but it evolved into its current multipurpose form. The system can target lightly armored vehicles, engineering structures, low-speed and low-flying airborne targets, boats, and low-tonnage ships.

The system utilizes two kinds of supersonic missiles, one of which has a tandem warhead with cumulative effects, considered the most powerful of all existing anti-tank missiles, capable of piercing the armor of all tanks.

Testing of the equipment took place in Kolomna outside of Moscow on test-site of the Machine-Building Design Bureau. Industry representatives practiced firing the system at various targets: tanks, helicopters, concrete forts, and enemy troops.

Currently the Chrysanthemum-S is being prepared to take part in the 69th Victory Day parade. The two-month training is taking place at the grounds of the Taman Guards Division in Alabino, Moscow region, which has a scale model of Red Square, complete with bleachers and markings. The dress rehearsal of the Victory Day parade will take place on April 28, after which equipment and personnel will travel to Moscow, where two more daytime and one nighttime rehearsal will take place.

Besides the Chrysanthemum-S, the famous OTRK Iskander-M will also represent KBM on Red Square. This year, a mechanized column of 14 Typhoon-K (KAMAZ-63968) cars will for the first time also cross the country’s main square.

The NKP Machine-Building Design Bureau (NKP KBM, Kolomna, Moscow region) is part of the state corporation Rostec’s holding company Vysokotochnye Kompleksy. During its existence, the bureau has produced more than 40 different kinds of weapons, including PTRK Malyutka, Storm-S and Storm-V, PZRK Strela-2 and Igla, TRK Tochka and Tochka-U, and OTRK Oka.

The holding company Vysokotochnye Kompleksy was created to unite the scientific and technical potential of a group of specialized companies. The holding company focuses on creating new military and special equipment in the field of high precision and combat zone tactical weapons systems.

KRET is the new face of Radio-Electronic Technologies


08.04.2014 by Rostec
 

The state corporation Rostec has unveiled a new brand for the concern Radio-Electronic Technologies (KRET). The rebranding will improve capitalization and allow the concern to implement its strategy for international expansion, including integration into world markets and the introduction of an IPO.

 

The KRET Brand

The rebranding allows the concern to be identified by the same abbreviation of KRET in both Russian and English. This policy coincides with the strategy of its parent company Rostec, who implemented its own name change in late 2012. Given that 75% of its production has military purposes, KRET has become the leader of Russia’s military-industrial complex. The concern has also adopted a policy of increased transparency in communicating with partners, investors, and the media. The new brand gives KRET an image of strength and severity, along with openness and readiness to pursue mutual beneficial partnerships.

As KRET CEO Nikolai Kolesov noted, the rebranding will allow the concern to increase its capitalization in the long term. “An international brand and dual-language site are designed to help implement KRET’s strategy of international expansion, including integration into the world markets and the introduction of an IPO,” he said.

Logo

KRET’s new logo consists of its abbreviated name graphic design, a stylized image of a pixel grid on which three symmetrical diamonds are visible. This symbolism is the essence of most of the concern’s technology: the transformation of real objects into a digital model.
“Competition in the global market is not possible without a strong, recognizable brand. Yet due to specifics of the dual-purpose enterprise, this resource is insufficiently used in Russia. Still, effective communication with the outside world is a competitive factor in the global market,” noted Vasily Brovko, Rostec communications director. “The rebranding aims to create a modern image of the concern as an innovative company with the strategic resources and objectives to develop unique, high-performance military and civilian technologies of the future that can also reach a new level of business.”

 

Site

KRET now has a new, multimedia website at www.kret.com. The site advances the concern’s new brand, presenting a multimedia portal for interaction with the outside world. KRET intends to adopt a policy of maximum openness with its partners, investors, and the media, which a new internet forum for feedback will help promote. To make communication with foreign colleagues as efficient as possible, information on the new site will be published in two languages, Russian and English. To increase visibility, the site will also provide videos, photos, and text about all aspects of KRET.

The strategic communications center Apostle, in partnership with SomeOneElse, one of the top creative agencies in the UK, developed the website. This team has also worked on projects for HSBC, Land Rover, BBC, Yota, Universal, and Rolling Stones. Warren Hutchinson, founder and design director of SomeOneElse led the project, which began in 2013 and took more than a year to complete.

“The developers were able to convey in their unique graphic language the product reliability of KRET and the stability of the company, along with its openness to cooperation, innovation, and investment. This project sets a high standard for companies in the international market for radio-electronic technologies,” said Steve Haggarty, art director for Apostle.

As part of its rebranding, the concern will use all digital communication channels, including video blogs and social networks. KRET already has official accounts in Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, VKontakte, and official channel in YouTube.

 

Strategy

KRET has adopted a range of initiatives for building effective communication in an effort to implement its development strategy by 2020. The concern’s priorities include creating new products for civil and military purposes, improving the competitiveness of its avionics systems, modernizing its production facilities on a large-scale, and transitioning to a complex supplier model. According to the strategy, KRET’s net profit will grow 4.5 times to 20 billion rubles in 2020, with revenue increasing more than 3 times to 204 billion rubles. By 2020, the projected capitalization of the concern is expected to exceed 237 billion rubles.

 

The concern Radio-Electronic Technologies (KRET) is Russia’s largest holding company in the radio-electronics industry. Founded in 2009, it is now a part of the state corporation Rostec. KRET specializes in the development and manufacture of avionics systems for civil and military aviation, air-based radar, state identification systems, radio warfare complexes, multipurpose measuring instrumentation, electrical connectors and cable systems.

Ratnik warrior military equipment to inform medics about the wound

 

April 07, 2014 by Rostec

 

Special sensors in soldiers’ equipment will transmit information to military medics

 

In Russia, the Warrior (Ratnik) military equipment is in the final stages of state testing. The next-generation equipment is outfitted with a system to register the physiological state of soldiers, with special sensors transmitting information to military medics.

 

According to Izvestia, the St. Petersburg Military Medical Academy named for Kirov (VMA) over the next two years will undergo an experimental modernization that includes a system to monitor soldiers’ vital functions and “to determine the physiological parameters of the wounded and assessing the severity of their injuries.”

 

The creators of the Warrior equipment (the Central Research Institute of Precision Engineering, part of the state corporation Rostec) confirmed to Izvestia that a health monitoring system was already being developed. The monitoring system is expected to be included in the next version of the Warrior equipment.

 

The upgraded Warrior equipment will include body sensors that every minute will record parameters such as heart rate, respiratory rate, blood-oxygen saturation indicators, and microvascular blood filling. The system will store and analyze these figures, and any deviation from the norm will trigger an alarm in the medical service. This technology draws on the already-developed Sagittarius (Strelets) system of intelligence, control, and communication. All information is automatically saved on a flash drive that stores medical history.

 

Soldiers in the medical unit will have access to all indicators on the condition of the wounded. Based on the severity of the injuries, the state of a wounded soldier will be assessed on a scale of 0 to 5. The medical company will use the data to prioritize the evacuation of the wounded and to identify the best possible ways to reach them based on their GPS coordinates.

 

The Ratnik warrior military equipment includes body armor, GLONASS-GPS navigation, the Sagittarius (Strelets) control system, a communicator, and an automatic weapon with night and thermal vision. The helmet is equipped to withstand a shot from a pistol at a distance of 10 m and has a thermal camera and video module for sniping. The Warrior equipment also includes food, water filters, medical supplies, a tent, and a sleeping bag. In total, the equipment weighs up to 20 kg.

 

The Ratnik warrior equipment was first introduced in 2011 and is expected to be formally adopted in the summer of 2014. This year’s state defense order includes the supply of tens of thousands of sets of the combat equipment for ground, airborne, and naval troops.

 

The Warrior equipment is produced at the Central Research Institute of Precision Engineering (TSNII TochMash), which was founded in 1944 and is now part of Rostec. The enterprise focuses on the development and manufacture of small arms and ammunition, military equipment, artillery systems, optoelectronic devices, sporting and hunting ammunition, sealed containers for transportation and storage, and firearm simulators.

Un drone militaire américain a été intercepté à haute altitude au-dessus de la Crimée et électroniquement abattu, a affirmé vendredi le groupe public russe d’armements Rostekhnologuiï (Rostec), rapporte l’AFP.

 

Le drone volait à environ 4.000 mètres d’altitude et était pratiquement invisible du sol. Il a été possible de rompre la liaison avec ses opérateurs américains grâce à un système radio-électronique, dit Rostec dans un communiqué qu’a pu consulter l’agence française.

Le communiqué, que l’Agence de presse a pu consulter avant qu’il ne soit retiré du site de Rostec, présentait l’appareil selon l’agence comme un drone de reconnaissance et de frappe.

L’appareil a effectué une descente et est tombé pratiquement intact entre les mains des forces d’autodéfense de Crimée, disait Rostec, qui précisait être le constructeur du système de lutte électronique utilisé, mais sans révéler pas qui l’avait utilisé dans cette affaire.

« Le drone MQ-5B faisait partie, à en juger par son numéro d’identification, de la 66e brigade américaine de reconnaissance militaire, basée en Bavière », indiquait encore Rostec.

La photographie sur le site de Rostec montrait, toujours selon l’agence, un drone en vol en gros plan, armé de deux petits missiles, et non les débris de l’appareil au sol après son interception présumée.

La flotte russe de la mer Noire à Sébastopol, en Crimée, est susceptible d’être équipée d’équipements de détection ou d’interception.

Des milliers d’hommes en armes, présumément des militaires russes, sont actuellement déployés en Crimée où Moscou soutient la tenue d’un référendum dimanche sur le rattachement à la Russie, après l’arrivée au pouvoir à Kiev d’une coalition pro-occidentale.
