The academician Reshetnev’s NPO PM participates in the “Aviation and Astronautics-2007” conference

NPO PM takes part in the VI International Conference “Aviation and Astronautics-2007”.

On the the VI International Conference “Aviation and Astronautics-2007” will be held at the Moscow Institute of Aviation.

The subject of the report will be “The on-board equipment waveguides with high technical characteristics used in the aerospace technics ”. The report demonstrates the results of work of a large number of designers, technologists and manufacturers of the waveguides which stand on a high scientific and technological level of radio-frequency transmitting channels of spacecrafts’ antennas. The report touches upon one of the most urgent questions in the sphere of aerospace technology – reducing the mass of the on-board equipment.

At present time the stage of the on-Earth testing of these waveguides is being completed at NPO PM. The waveguides are planned to be installed on every perspective spacecraft developed and assembled in NPO PM.
