Radio-Electronic Technologies Con­cern (abbreviated to KRET in Rus­sian), one of Russia’s premier vertically integrated defense holding companies, is showcasing at Airshow China 2016 over 40 military and civilian products based on breakthrough innovative technologies.

The company stand features an advanced helicopter avionics demonstrator emulating real-life operation of a new flight and navigation system. The system presents the crew with information via electronic displays, and also supports radio communications with other aircraft and air traffic control centers in keeping with the modern requirements. Visitors can also familiarize themselves with a demonstrator of an in-built export version of the President-S airborne defense system, one of the most efficient electronic warfare solutions designed for the personal protection of all types of aircraft.

KRET is also demonstrating export versions of the Sukhoi Su-35 fighter’s avio­nics. These new generation radio-electronic solutions are based on an information management system designed to help the pilot control onboard equipment; they include the RSUO weapon management system, the MZBN compact protected airborne recorder, a family of small-sized X- and Ka-band airborne radars, and an integrated IBKO-152 system.

KRET also boasts significant technological advances in other areas. “We have developed and implemented a number of promising projects,” says CEO Nikolai Kolesov. “These include mass production of strap-down inertial navigation systems for a variety of aircraft types. The system enables continuous autonomous precision positioning for more accurate navigation and weapons delivery”.

KRET is a dynamic business supplying to more than 20 countries worldwide. It ranked 48th in Defense News’ 2015 survey of the top 100 global defense companies, ascending from the 52nd position the year before.

KRET will be granted the approval shortly to work directly with foreign defense customers. “After-sales support for our previously delivered military products is a priority for us; this includes repairs and modernization of avionics, friend-or-foe identification, and electronic warfare systems,” Kolesov says.
