The reliability of onboard equipment - one of the most important factors of safety. Today, Russian aircraft builders in modern helicopters and airplanes for the most part forced to install equipment of foreign manufacture. For example, on-board equipment "Sukhoi Superjet-100" supplied by the US company Thales. This is due to the crisis in which Russian industry came in the early 90s.
But the situation is gradually improving. In April 2013, "Aviapribor Holding" signed a contract with the Ministry of Industry for the manufacture of prototypes of devices for an integrated set of on-board equipment based on modular avionics. The amount of the agreement is 2, 33 billion rubles. The equipment is designed primarily for short and medium passenger aircraft MS-21 ("Bulk aircraft of the XXI century»).
Already in 2014-2015 it is planned to test the basic components of the system, and in 2016-2017 - to begin mass production. In 2017, the share of Russian avionics our perspective the courts will reach 70-80% in monetary terms. It is unlikely that it would have been possible if the manufacturers of avionics are not headed for the pool. One of these days belongs to Rostec KRET group acquired 26% of shares of "Aviapribor-holding", thus becoming the main shareholder with a share of 54%.
"Aviapribor Holding" - Russia's largest designer and manufacturer of avionics and consolidation of its shares - a natural step in the implementation of the strategy concern KRET combination instrument-making industry. This will allow the concern to move from separate supply of electronic components to complex integrated solutions in the field of avionics. Developing a set of on-board equipment for the MS-21 - just an example of such a decision.
This complex is intended to be used not only for the MS-21. It was originally created as a one-stop solution, and the future adaptation of technology to other models receive special attention. KRET says that adapting their systems will cost only 15-20% of the cost of the basic package. Now adapt such equipment worth almost as much as to create a new one. That's why manufacturers think their universal equipment will be used in virtually all Russian planes and helicopters that are being developed today, and this multi-purpose transport aircraft MTA and the Sukhoi Superjet NG (short-haul aircraft of the new generation on the basis of Sukhoi Superjet), and various models of helicopters . Moreover, in the long term it looks quite real, and access to foreign markets, which would be the best proof of the quality of our electronics.
