Korolyov, Institute of weaponry and military equipment of Armed Forces of Ukraine and others.
According to Yuriy Tereshchenko, the developers demonstrated the implementation of reconnaissance mission using BpAK R-100 multipurpose unmanned aviation complex with data transmission in real time mode. This device was made by UAVia’s specialists. Also the capabilities of multi-rotors of national production were demonstrated. In Mr. Tereshenko’s opinion, the facilities are able to enhance significantly the reconnaissance possibilities of Ukrainian force authorities, including those while performing antiterrorist operations.
Two and three-seats hang gliders designed to equip special operation forces were presented in action for consideration of the force authorities’ representatives. These flying vehicles also can be equipped by special unmanned systems for the conduction of reconnaissance and strike missions.
“This is just a part of developments, which can be provided by Ukrainian enterprises. On this stage it is important to integrate the potential into reliable production samples. The necessity of such equipment is extremely high, taking into account the challenges for security of the state,” Yuriy Tereshchenko emphasized.
According to the executive, Concern will identify the optimal strategy in the framework of initiative on equipment of Armed Forces of Ukraine and other force structures with the unmanned facilities. “It is necessary to balance immediate and midterm needs of power-wielding structures of Ukraine, as well as capabilities of public and private companies in terms of development of this equipment. Relevant leading foreign companies should be attracted to the national projects implementation if there is such a need,” Ukroboronprom’s director said.
Ukroboronprom has developed a number of projects for modernization of T-64 tanks
  Ukroboronprom State Concern has developed a number of projects for modernization of T-64 Tank. It was stated by Yuriy Tereshenko, Concern Temporary Acting Director General.
Following the executive, first of all it means the modernization of T-64B tank to the version of BulatBM. By its main technical specifications Bulat BM can be compared with Russian T-90 Tank, and it approximates to Oplot BM. Tank has prospects of further modernization owing to the installation of stronger power-plant with the 6-TD1 and 6TD-2 Engines , upgraded fire control systems, reactive protection, communications and navigation system. The cost of T-64 modernization to the version ofBulat BM is four times cheaper than the cost of production of Oplot BM.
Kharkiv Plant of Armored Tanks has also developed the Project for modernization of T-64 to the version of T-64E. Tank contains a new fire control system and guided armament package. A distinguishing feature of T-64E is the possibility to install two combat modules, including anti-aircraft gun, on the turret. Tank has an enhanced armored protection, reactive armor system ‘Duplet’ or active protection system ‘Zaslon’. T-64 is powered with an upgraded 5TDF Engine with the capacity of 850 hp. In terms of ‘price-to-effectiveness’ ratio, T-64E is one of the best samples of modern tanks. Herewith, the price of such vehicle is significantly less than Bulat BM’s price.
Besides, Ukroboronprom is able to offer T-64BV-1 Tanks which have passed the major overhaul. This is a budget option that is optimal under the conditions of insufficient financing. In terms of ‘price-to quality’ ratio, this tank suppresses T-72 Tank after the major overhaul.
“The field of armored vehicles of Ukroboronprom is a key one within the national deference industrial complex of Ukraine and it has a closed-type development and production cycle of heavy and light armor vehicles. The key elements within this chain - Kharkiv Morozov Machne-Building Design Bureau and Malyshevplant – have saved the potential for development and production as the modernized as well as new samples of armored vehicles,” Mr. Tereshenko summarized.
Ukroboronservice at its own expense is to recover five units of BTR-80
  Ukroboronservice State Enterprise started conducting renovation works and upgrading of five units of BTR-80. All works will be performed at company’s own circulating assets in the framework ofUkroboronprom’s strategy, focused on strengthening the defense potential of the state.
It was announced by Sergey Mykytyuk, Director of the enterprise.
According to the executive, major overhaul of four units of BTR-80 and upgrade of another similar vehicle will be carried out. After the major overhaul and modernization are performed, all five armored personnel carriers, which are on the Ukroboronservice’s balance sheet, are to be transferred to military structures of Ukraine.
Sergey Mykytyuk also reported that increase of fighting capability of Ukrainian Army is the priority task of Ukrainian special exporters.
“Being under the difficult conditions for the state we, as special exporters, will contribute as much as possible to Army’s rearmament and defense industry development. There is a need of a powerful Army under the actual occupation conditions of the certain part of Ukraine. To achieve this we use all reserves and possibilities. The supply of five units of BTR-80 will be the first step in the implementation of this system program,” Mr. Mykytyuk underlined.
Conduction of renewal of four units of BTR-80 in accordance with the plan of Ukroboronservice is to be finished in a one and a half or two months. Upgrading of another BTR-80 will take a little bit more time. The works are being carried out by specialists of Kyiv Armored Plant, which has relevant industrial and technological base. Decisions concerning further usage of BTR-80 will be made by the management of military structures.

The newest radar system MR-1 against ‘stealth’ should be tested in accordance with state standards in 2015
  Upon the sufficient financing the MR-1 Radar System, manufactured by the Scientific and Production Complex ‘Iskra’, might have been tested for the compliance with the state standards already in 2015. This was informed by Igor Presnyak, Director of the enterprise.
According to the official, MR-1 Radar System is being developed and manufactured exceptionally at the expense of the SE SPP ‘Iskra’. The specific feature of the radar system is its allowance for air targets detection made under ‘stealth’ technology.
“MR-1 has the number of significant advantages against the foreign radar systems of meter range. In particular, MR-1 has a short build up time (up to 5 min) compared to NEBO-SVU Radar System, build up time of which is 30 min. All equipment of our station is placed on one KRAZ motor vehicle in the comparison with three vehicles needed for 55Zh5 Radar System. The MR-1 Radar System allows making an assessment of the altitude of the target location. The VOSTOK-E Radar System has no such ability,” I. Presnyak stressed on.
The equipment of the MR-1 is made on the up-to-date digital base, allowing it to integrate effectively into the military and civil airspace control systems.
“As of today, we are limited in the possibility of investing our own financial resources for spare parts purchase and station manufacturing. This is due to the cutback in the state purchase orders and the necessity of upgrading of radar equipment, being manufactured by our enterprises, in order to keep its export potential. Full or partial financing of the works left by the state bodies should significantly speed up the terms of manufacturing of MR-1 radar system,” - the director of the enterprise emphasized
Cancellation of tenders for Ukroboronprom enterprises will strengthen positions of Ukraine as the world’s special exporter
   The Government approval of the list of the military industrial complex enterprises for the execution of the Law “On Amendments to the Law “On Implementation of the State Procurements” adopted by Verkhovna Rada and aimed at creating the system for procurement of goods, works and services, increasing the volume of Ukrainian products supplies to the world markets and enhancing the operational effectiveness of the military industrial complex enterprises.
It was reported by Tetiana Khrypko, Deputy Director General of the State Concern “Ukroboronprom”.
According to Ms Khrypko, the Document determines that the Law “On Implementation of the State Procurements” does not apply to the implementation of procurement of goods, works and services by the military industrial complex enterprises which are in the list approved by the Ukrainian Government dated February 12, 2014. This list, in particular, includes 155 member enterprises within the Concern including the joint-stock companies – manufacturers of military equipment and armament - also managed by Ukroboronprom.
“The need for holding tenders and the complications occured while planning the procurements volumes were the key factors of the manufacturing process significant delay at the Concern enterprises”, T. Khrypko pointed out.
In her opinion, the cancellation of tenders for procurement of military equipment components will reduce the duration of the military equipment and armament manufacturing, repairing and upgrading cycle, enhance the competitiveness of national enterprises in the foreign markets and allow increasing the volume of orders.
“The list approved provides on the legislative principles for the military industrial complex enterprises for timely and efficient planning as well as the proper fulfillment of contractual orders”, the official person said.
“The need for holding tenders often makes it impossible to execute an order since considerable number of components and materials are specified in the design documentation with the manufacturer stated. It is rather risky to use other suppliers’ products even if much cheaper. This could only be possible by the agreement with the armament sample developer and after complete trials conducted which is ‘an expensive treat’. There is no point in replacing the proven component with the cheaper one so that in the course of the trials the expensive unit would be lost. It is that very case when one should not save on small things not to lose something more significant”, the Deputy Director emphasized.
As Ms Khrypko further resumed, the Law “On Amendments to the Law “On Implementation of State Procurements” will enable the fulfillment of foreign economic contracts of the military industrial complex, enhance their financial and economic stand and strengthen the positions of Ukraine as the world’s special exporter.
Ukroboronprom enters foreign markets with T-64

Moreover, under the criteria “price-quality” the upgraded T-64 is superior to the list of foreign analogues”, - Vadym Fedosov, the Director of Division of Armored Vehicles, Artillery Armament, Automotive Vehicles, Engineering and Special Equipment of the Ukroboronprom said. He emphasized that the contract has been concluded within the fulfilment the Concern management decision concerning the expansion of supplies of armored vehicles for foreign customers.
“Due to availability of great number of units of T-64tank in Ukraine, it is more profitable for the country to sell them on the foreign markets rather than to recycle those machines. The fulfilment of this contract allows providing the Ukrainian enterprises with good work load, increasing profit of the Concern and assignments to the budget, as well creating of new working places in as mid-term prospect. For example, the supply of each tank T-64 allows to create at least one working place at the contractor enterprise”, - V. Fedosov said.
He also informed that after the signing the contract for repair and supply of 50 tanks T-64BV-1, the State Enterprise “Kharkiv Plant of Armored Tanks” will increase its outputs almost up to UAH 100 mln. Thus, the enterprise will get new possibilities in 2014.

Т-64 the main battle tank, whose concept was developed in the beginning of 60th by DB of Kharkov Machine-Building Plant (now the State Enterprise “Kharkov Morozov Machine-Building Design Bureau”). From the moment of its creation T-64 has been enhancing constantly on the basis of experience gained during combat actions of the Armed Forces of the Soviet Union and the development of technologies. While the Soviet Union existed the tank has not been exported, because it was considered as strategic purpose arm and was intended to be used for combating the potential enemy from NATO countries. T-64 tank has been produced in serial by Kharkiv Machine-Building Plant (now the State Enterprise “Malyshevplant”).
