23 September 2016
The project of establishing the first in Russia National Center for Structural Optics was presented to Minister of Trade and Industry of the Russian Federation Denis Manturov. The Center is to be formed on the base of two enterprises of the holding company RT-Chemcomposite – JSC NITS and JSC “Technologiya” named after A.G. Romashin.

The common synergetic effect only in the Russian markets can reach 3.2 bln rubles by 2020, the significant part of which will belong to the military and civil aircraft market (1.5 bln rubles). Moreover, the Center will enable the holding company to come into the markets of China, India, Iran, and of other countries with its products and engineering services for setting up a high-tech structural optics production.

The consolidation of scientific and technical, industrial, and financial potentials of the RT-Chemcomposite enterprises in the National Center for Structural Optics will allow the presence on the military and civil aircraft markets to be extended due to the combination of the experience of the two enterprises gained in developing and manufacturing the high-strength glazing for the railway transport, armoured glass for the special transport, marine glazing, and articles for the space engineering,” noted Director General of RT-Chemcomposite Kirill Shubsky.

On the exhibition stand, Kirill Shubsky and Alexei Kuzmitsky, Chairman of the RT-Chemcomposite Board of Directors, showed Denis Manturov the latest developments related to the import substitution, among them aluminium honeycombs for nonmetallic sandwich structures featuring the operating temperature of up to 160°С/300°С and high-strength polycarbonate glazing, as well as heterogeneous aircraft glazing including electrically heated heterogeneous glazing.

Among traditional items, including honeycomb variants, high-tech products from composite materials and special glazing products for the aircraft, the innovative developments of Technologiya are shown on the stand as well. The interactive stand, which offers to try to crash with the hammer the polycarbonate canopy, is of great interest to the visitors. The article honourably passes the test confirming the high quality and reliability of products manufactured by Obninsk Research and Production Enterprise Technologiya. Denis Manturov singled out the successful presentation of the aircraft glazing exhibit. “The main thing is that it is informative and demonstrative,” the Minister emphasized.

“The GIDROAVIASALON site opens unique opportunities for us. Taking into account the entrance of Technologiya to the shipbuilding market, the communication with the recognized professionals working “at the joint of environments” makes it possible not only to gain a deeper insight into the specific character of products for the water environment, but to define for ourselves more distinctly the trends required most of all in this field,” noted Andrei Silkin, Director General of ORPE Technologiya.
