"Vanguard" — the only time the true manufacturer of rockets for the best in the world of air defense systems S-300 and S-400. Glad that the company has been a tremendous increase in production. But by the early 2000's orders for the rocket did not exist, and plant was on the verge of bankruptcy. At the same time, the value of air defense in the defense of the country can not be overemphasized. This is evidenced by the fact that a number of States in which there were no modern air defense systems, such as systems With-300, was attacked.
All of the processing products of complex shapes (second compartment housing) are produced on a modern 5-axis machine.
Changes to the best were observed after the 2002 presidential decree into a single "Concern PVO" Almaz-Antey "were united more than 40 companies in the industry, among which was, of course, and MMP" Vanguard ". In the current year, "Concern PVO" Almaz-Antey "took 20th place in the ranking of the huge global arms manufacturers institute SIPRI. This Stockholm organization engaged in research problems of peace and conflict, first, the issues of arms control and disarmament.
5-axis machining center. Operated by one person.
At the current time Concern produces three Innovative project to build a 2-plants in Kirov and Nizhny Novgorod to produce promising missile systems 4 and 5th generations and the development of industrial park (North-West Regional Center) in Saint Petersburg, which will connect to a single voedinyzhdy site on the basis of "SDO" Municipal Obukhov plant"Four companies currently located in the center of town. These projects are expected to complete by 2015, then begin to create for the needs of the Ministry of Defence and zabugornom contracts with customers.
Under the re-equipment programs from plant purchased a modern autoclave to facilitate the application of protective coatings.
The need to expand production capacity yavna — in recent years, the creation of rockets to "Vanguard" grown up in the 10's again. Hard contract implementation and management of non-core assets has given the company the opportunity to move from the struggle for survival to the modernization and development. This is evidenced by a number of signs. So, not so long ago on the basis of the company with involvement Bauman. Bauman created Innovative center "Vanguard", allowing students to work to lure businesses and update personnel. Upgrade noticeable now: the average age of employees "Vanguard" has decreased with 56 to 40 years by the influx of newly minted college graduates. The number of employees has grown to several hundred people, and lately enterprise will build three dormitories with all amenities for its own employees.
Assembling the fourth compartment requests qualifications.
In addition, the plant installed and operating modern machine tools and hardware upgrades continue — MMZ "Vanguard" under the federal motivated applets to reform the military-industrial complex in 2011-2020 for technical re-signed a contract for up to 2 billion rubles in 2015. According to the general director of the plant Gennady Kozhina, "about 1 billion 200 million rubles will go to the purchase of equipment, more than 600 — for the construction and renovation of infrastructure."
Inconspicuous grayish Circuits — gas rudders — provide effective control of a rocket at low speeds with the first seconds of the start. This is one of the important advantages over their South American Patriot.
All elements of the product are serious testing. Pictured transport and launch container is checked for density.
Takes work to improve the rockets for these complexes. A large potential missiles, I'm sure Mr. Kojin, stressing that they are churning purpose better and more stable than all zabugornyh counterparts. To a large extent a prerequisite for this are the principles of the base design of these missiles, except that plays a great role and a very tight control of the properties of products at all steps.
According to G. Kozhina, yearly demand for air defense missiles will only increase. "We" pain in the ass ", our products will always be necessary," — said General Director of MSW.
Rocket repeatedly tested and is ready for closing in the transport and launch container.
After the gear missiles can be stored for more than 10 years. The containers are painted in camouflage for different weather zones.
