Ulyanovsk Instrument Manufacturing Design Bureau was recognized as the winner of the national award in import substitution "PRIORITET-2018"
The enterprise won the "Prioritet-Oboronprom" nomination thanks to the device for helicopters.
“The Ulyanovsk enterprise has become the winner of the national award for two years in a row. The Design Bureau is so successful outside the region thanks to achievements at the plant. It continues upgrading production capacity and facilities. Ulyanovsk Instrument Manufacturing Design Bureau actively participates in state and industry programmes including the ones within the defense order. Today the enterprise is one of the best in implementation of import substitution programmes, which is one of the key tasks set by the President Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin”, - the Governor Sergey Morozov noted.
According to experts of Ulyanovsk Instrument Manufacturing Design Bureau (UIMDB), work on the Doppler velocity measurement device DISS-450 started in 2015 within implementation of The Industry Development and Competitiveness Enhancement governmental program in the field of import substitution. The device, which was created for helicopters, is a domestically produced alternative of the foreign product used in Russian aircraft.
“Air worthiness of the device has been confirmed during official tests. It is planned that in the nearest future, DISS-450 will be used in helicopters instead of its foreign analog. Equipment made by UIMDB has already been installed in planes and helicopters of the President and the Government of the Russian Federation. It is also used by Russian and foreign airlines”, - said Andrey Tyurin, First Deputy Chairman of the regional Government.
Last year, Ulyanovsk Instrument Manufacturing Design Bureau received an award in the Oboronprom nomination for development of the navigational data shaping unit.
As a reference:
Ulyanovsk Instrument Manufacturing Design Bureau develops and manufactures avionics for all kinds of aircraft and helicopters. Today almost all Russian planes are equipped with products made by this dynamically developing enterprise.
DISS-450 is designed to automatically carry out continuous monitoring of the aircraft's velocity vector components regardless of the visibility, the season and the geological substrate. It is a domestically produced alternative of the well-known foreign product used in Russian aircraft made abroad.
