In 1973, the OKB was given its name.
For his many years history OKB them. N.I. Kamova created a unique research school, creating a scientific and technical potential for creating helicopters of various aerodynamic schemes. Today it is engaged in the development of helicopters, the creation of prototypes and their testing, and is still the only developer in the world of coaxial-design helicopters that provides high maneuverability and good controllability with small dimensions of a helicopter.
To the most significant helicopter models developed by the Kamov experimental design bureau for the naval fleet include Ka-27 type helicopters, on the basis of which a large number of modifications were created. The unique experience of designing naval helicopters allowed us to establish an effective development of civilian helicopter technology. The Ka-27 model helicopter was the last helicopter that Nikolay Ilyich Kamov himself worked directly on. In 1974, his disciple, Sergei Viktorovich Mikheev, became Kamov's successor. During his work as General Designer, the coaxial scheme of helicopters not only established itself and received worldwide recognition - it became a national treasure of Russia.
Today, the tradition of creating helicopters of the coaxial scheme continues and develops JSC "Kamov", part of the holding "Russian Helicopters". The design office created a new generation of modern helicopters: Ka-52 "Alligator", Ka-226T, Ka-32A11ВС, etc. In August, the International Aviation and Space Salon MAKS-2015 took place in August 2015, at which the holding presented a new product - the Ka helicopter -52K "Katran", received folding blades and wing panels.
Information Agency "Weapon Russia "offers to its readers a photo report on Ka-brand helicopters, which are in service with the Naval Aviation of the Russian Navy, the Russian Air Force, the Federal Border Service, the Emergencies Ministry, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and other organizations and departments.
