Mikhail Vakulenko,
Director of State Enterprise Kiev Factory Radar
The Kiev-based Radar factory (the former Communist industrial association) is one of the largest enterprises in the Ukrainian machinery-building industry. It specialises in production of modern radio electronic and radar equipment for aircraft (airplanes, helicopters etc.), high-quality gas-distribution equipment and boilers for home use, parts for automobiles and tractors and consumer goods (such as electronic home appliances, electronic devices etc.), as well as equipment for medicine.

Founded in January 1944, the factory became the first aircraft radio equipment enterprise in the Ukraine. The year of 1949 saw foundation of the OKB-483 design bureau, which later became an independent enterprise, the Kvant scientific research institute.

In the 1950s the factory mastered production of aircraft friend-or-foe interrogators and the PSBN radars. Then, in the 1960s, it was the first Soviet enterprise to produce radar homing head for air-to-air missiles. Later, more the factory mastered production of more complicated products, like the 126MK and the Osminog radar complexes for airplanes and helicopters in production at the factories in Novosibirsk, Tashkent, Kumertau and other cities.

In 1968 civil airliners began using the Groza meteorological radars manufactured by our the factory. In the modified form, the Groza-M, the radar still remains in production and wide-spread use on the Yak-40, Yak-42, Tu-154M, Il-62, Il-86, An-24 and An-30.

Since the middle of 1980s the enterprise is a solo manufacturer of the MNRLS-85 and the Buran complexes (in a number of versions) for the An-72, An-74, Tu-204, Tu-334, Il-96 and Il-114. These systems were developed by the Buran scientific research institute, which used to be one of the factory’s design departments.

Recently, in cooperation with the Buran institute, the enterprise has manufactured first examples of the Buran-A140 and Buran-A70 meteorological and navigation radars of the next generation for the newest Antonov designs, the An-140 and An-70.

In frame of conversion from military to civil production, the Radar has mastered manufacture of spare parts (such as selector switches and sensors for measuring pressure and level of liquids) to automobiles and tractors. Simultaneously, the enterprise put in production high-quality gas-distribution equipment and boilers for home use. Also, which was for the first time in the Ukraine, it mastered production of stabilisers of gas pressure for gas-distribution points.

In cooperation with health care specialists the enterprise has developed and put into production a number of unique medical instruments, including the Poluphonator audition-voice devices, medical drills, saws etc.

The factory possesses a powerful scientific-technical potential, which has allowed to set up a full production cycle. It includes:

  • precision casting of metals; pressing and casting of products made of plastics and resin mixtures; extruding from sheet materials; electro- erosion treatment of metals; precise chemical cutting; gas-electric welding, hydrogen brazing; manufacture of computer boards from foiled dielectrics, protective and decorative coatings, parts made of glass fiber and foam-rubber.
  • manufacture, tuning and checking of wave guiding units, UHF antennas (including slotted and phased-array ones), highly stable UHF resonators and alternators.
  • thin-film micro assembly using methods of vacuum spraying and photo lithography.
  • assembly and electric erection operations, adjustment, climatic and vibration tests on radio electronic equipment and instruments;
  •  development and manufacture of tooling and tools.

The Radar factory is open to mutually beneficial cooperation with all organisations and enterprises in the sphere of setting up mass production and sales of industrial products and consumer goods. We are keen to establish partnership with enterprises from the Ukraine, CIS and foreign countries.
