The Shvabe holding, which is a subsidiary of the Rostec State Corporation, has developed and released a mobile robotic radiation survey unit. The robot is designed to seek out local sources of gamma radiation and absorb them.
The mobile robotic radiation survey unit works both in indoor environments as well as in open areas. Due to its rotation and movement sensor, the robot is able to move freely even in the most impassable places.
In addition, the robot is equipped with heat flow sensors, a set of sample collecting devices, special gripping mechanisms, as well as convenient innovative containers for the absorption and disposal of gamma radiation. The unit moves at a speed of 1 meter per second. It can be controlled either via radio waves or cable line.
The robot is able to lift up to 50 kilograms, and it can operate continuously without needing to be charged for several hours.
The Shvabe Holding consists of major enterprises in the electrooptical industry. The holding develops and manufactures high-tech optoelectronic systems as well as special-purpose and civilian systems, optical materials, medical equipment, energy-saving lighting equipment and other products. It is a subsidiary of the Rostec State Corporation.

The Novosibirsk factory Shvabe – Defense and Security conducted successful tests of its new rifle scopes.
April 03, 2014 by Rostec
Two new kinds of scopes were tested: the PSU (a scope with an interchangeable zoom) and the PO1x20PMZ. The task was to verify target accuracy at different magnifications and to determine the effect of the design of the new wide sight in the PO1x20 series on the speed of raising the weapon, as well as testing the benefits of the new reticle.
The tests confirmed the stated specifications of the new scopes, establishing their advantage over other models. For example, the PSU scope when used with a gun showed an increase in target accuracy at 100 and 200 meters. When used with a Pecheneg machine gun, the scope with interchangeable zoom saved ammunition and increased the target accuracy regardless of the magnification.
Tests of the PO1x20PM3 scope showed a decrease in the time between raising a weapon and fixating on a target during close combat. It was also established that the folding protective covers would prevent the contamination of optic sights in bad weather, under extreme field conditions, and during intense combat.
The holding company Shvabe brings together key enterprises in Russia’s optoelectronics industry. It is composed of 62 organizations, including research and production associations, design buros, government institutions, and optical businesses. The holding company develops and manufactures high-tech optoelectronic products and systems for military and civil purposes, as well as other optical materials, medical equipment, energy-saving devices, and lighting equipment. The holding company is part of the state corporation Rostec and until November 2012 was known as Optical Systems and Technologies.
