As a result of enlargement, restructuring and liquidation, in the period from 2014 to 2016, 70 organizations will be established on the basis of 120 plus organizations of Ruselectronics. According to deputy director of Ruselectronics, basic scenario of the holding company’s development strategy implementation envisions its revenues’ growth in 2012-2020 to 130.7 billion roubles ($3.7 billion) from 42.7 billion roubles ($1.2 billion). Quantity of Ruselectronics subsidiaries will be reduced from 123 to 70.[7]
In 2015, Igor Kozlov was appointed as the Chairman of the Directors Board of Ruselectronics while being the Council of the Minister of Telecom and Mass Communications of the Russian Federation.[8] In 2016 Igor Kozlov became the CEO of Ruselectronics/[9]
State corporation Rostec later announced plans to sell 75% of Ruselectronics shares on IPO.[10]


Ruselectronics provides semiconductor devices, photo detectors and light emitting elements, displays, emitters, microwave devices and vacuum tubes, electronic materials and structures, and electronic equipment and systems. Its products include diodes; AC and DC plasma display panels, and bar and digital displays, as well as plasma monitors for industrial applications; and co-based and nano alloys, and IR LED chips. The company’s products also include millimeter-waverband waveguide isolators and circulators, and ferrite phase shifters; broad and narrow bandwidth, and cryogenic coaxial isolators and circulators; and high-power coaxial circulators.[11] Ruselectronics subcidiaries are also specializing in the development of software-defined radio systems, including SDR systems for naval surface ships.[12]

Innovation Program

JSC 'Spetsmagnit' source-independent group escape system (EKSS) for rescuing people from high floors in high-rises

In 2014 during annual exhibition Open Innovations Ruselectronics presented a unique rescue solution from high-rises. Ruselectronics subcidiary JSC 'Spetsmagnit' designed source-independent group escape system (EKSS) for rescuing people from high floors in high-rises based on magnetic eddy-currents braking systems - two escape and rescue pods equipped with magnetic systems which interact with an electric strap control bus housed in a separate fireproof shaft placed on the outside of the building.

As an escape pod full of people starts moving down, gravity induces eddy currents in the bus, which generate braking force by interacting with the system’s magnetic field. One escape pod can lower up to 25 people at a time from a height of up 100 meters (330 ft) in less than a minute. In the meantime, the second (empty) escape pod connect to the first one, will rise to the top, ready to evacuate the next group of people.[13]

At Interpolitex 2014, the 18th International Exhibition of Technologies and Methods to Ensure National Security, Ruselectronics presented a new mobile command post with thermografic cameras for remote observation and surveillance during security operations in areas affected by natural disasters, emergencies caused by technology, and in mass gatherings and potentially volatile crowds:[14]

“The new vehicle-mounted thermal imaging system can be used by Emergency Response during forest fires and by the police in zero visibility. We really want to supply the latest state-of-the-art technologies to people who save other people’s lives,” Ruselectronics CEO Andrey Zverev said.[15]

Another innovative solution at Open Innovations-2014 is a technology to apply a protective nanocoating on medical instruments has presented by another Ruselectronics subcidiary - JSC 'S.A. Vekshinsky Scientific Research Institute for Vacuum Machinery'.[16]

Overall Ruselectronics is planning to invest more than $5.8bn in its innovation development between now and 2020.[17]

The new innovation development program will help us boost sales revenues, take our products to the global markets, and make sure Russia gets a foothold in new market segments and ultimately takes a leadership role in a number of technology areas.
Andrey Zverev, Ruselectronics CEO

Ruselectronics has plans to invest more than USD 3bn in technical modernization of its assets across Russia and then inject about USD 2.3bn in R&D, with the rest going to infrastructure improvements, staff training, and international economic collaboration.



In November 2009 Ruselectronics and French Alcatel-Lucent RT (Alcatel-Lucent) entered into a joint venture agreement.[18] The JV was created for development and production of high-tech telecommunication equipment and its promotion in Russian and CIS markets. In 2012 the parties signed long-term collaboration memorandum on research, development and implementation of LTE technologies. According to the memorandum, under Alcatel-Lucent management a new integrated R&D centre will be created in Moscow using Ruselectronics JSC 'Pulsar' facilities as a base.[19]

Sumitomo Wiring Systems

The joint venture with Japanese Sumitomo Wiring System opened in 2014 in Yekaterinburg on a site of Ruselectronics subcidiary JSC 'Radio Equipment Plant'. The enterprise employs 290 people, a number that is expected to increase to 650 by the end of the 2014, and will produce automotive parts for VAZ, Renault and Nissan.[20]

Rohde & Schwarz/ Funkwerk AG

In 2011 Ruselectronics created a joint-venture with German company Rohde & Schwarz, which production facility is based on . Production of Rohde & Schwarz designed base stations of TETRA standard is located on JSC 'Omsky Scientific-Research Institute of semiconductors' facility. Same agreement signed with Funkwerk AG.[21]

Tata Power SED

In 2014 Orion subbranch of Ruselelectronics signed a memorandum on cooperation with Indian defence company Tata Power SED[22] The parties have agreed to cooperate on the development and production of high-tech products in the area of transport and security infrastructure systems for the Indian civil and military aviation market.[23]

CETC International

According to Rostec CEO Sergey Chemezov, Ruselectronics is going to build LED-production plant with Chinese corporation CETC within a joint-venture project in special economic zone in Tomsk.[24]

China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CASC)

In 2014 Rostec and China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CASC) signed an Agreement for a Strategic Cooperation aimed at facilitating cooperation in R&D and production of electronic components, information technology, communications, automation systems and new materials. Ruselectronics will participate in this joint-venture as a Rostec Corporation' electronic equipment suncidiary.[25]


Ruselectronics signed the agreement with ZTE Corporation during Mobile World Congress 2015 in Barcelona. Ruselectronics is seeking to enlarge its activities in the fields of innovative technologies and solutions for the “Smart City, "Smart Transit System", “Intelligent Transportation System”, and “Intelligent Antenna System” programs. ZTE plans to jointly develop versatile solutions based on GoTa (Global Open Trunking Architecture) technology and digital trunking products. This technology was first implemented to ensure security at the National Games of the People’s Republic of China in Jiangsu Province. The system provided secure communications to tens of thousands of subscribers, including games organizers, medical personnel, security officers, and other employees.[26]
Ruselectronics as well has already overseen the successful implementation of the “Safe City” system in a number of Russian cities. For example, in March 2013, Russia's first large-scale information system created on the basis of a domestic hardware and software was introduced in Krasnoyarsk. The system facilitates effective action of operative teams, as well as the prediction and prevention of various incidents and crimes.
The turnover between Ruselectronics and ZTE is expected to reach yuan 1.2 billion.[27]
