In the holding company are the production of high-strength and high-modulus carbon fibers and fabrics based on them, as well as high quality prepregs (composite materials, semi-finished products) used in various industrial sectors.
The supervisory board of state-owned corporation (now JSC) RUSNANO in April 2009 approved the participation of RUSNANO project on Industrial prepregs based on carbon and mineral fibers and nano-filled resin systems.
The Interstate Aviation Committee (IAC) was established on the basis of a signed 30 December 1991 intergovernmental "Agreement on Civil Aviation and Use of Airspace." MAC is defined by the executive body of the 12 states of the former USSR states delegated functions and powers in the field of civil aviation and the use of airspace.
