“The specialization of the design bureau will be the modernization and development of communications equipment, modern EW complexes, command and staff machines, life support systems and power supply. Its personnel base will be composed of development specialists from four Tambov defense enterprises, ”the release says.
It is noted that "the formation of the design bureau is part of a plan to create the largest research and production association in Russia (NPO) with a specialization in communications and EW."

“Each structure within the association receives its clear specialization within the framework of a single research and production process. A special role in this process is assigned to the design office, which will unite the development teams of all four enterprises and will become the intellectual center of NGOs. The backbone of this team will make experts TNIIR "Ether" with the traditionally strong scientific and engineering school. In addition, we intend to work closely with local and federal universities to attract talented young people, ”he said.
