UKROBORONPROM CLUSTERS WILL EXPAND AN-132 IMPORT SUBSTITUTION EXAMPLE

The example of import substitution in the production of modern aircraft An-132 – developed by SE "Antonov" – will be expanded in the framework of all UKROBORONPROM (UOP) clusters. This was stated by Director General of the SC"UkrOboronProm" Roman Romanov.

"We received completely new aircraft. However, An-132D is just the tip of the iceberg. Import substitution process is a long and difficult procedure. We’re making changes to the production process, to all design documentation. It’s not as easy as it sounds, "- said the head of the State Concern Roman Romanov.

According to him, production and logistic algorithms – used by the State Concern when working on An-132 – will be applied in other clusters.

UOP SE "Antonov" demonstrated a new light multipurpose aircraft AN-132D. The aircraft was designed in a very short period – 1.5 years. Leading companies are involved in An-132D development, including Pratt & Whitney Canada and Honeywell. This is the first Antonov aircraft, manufactured without Russian components.

"UkrOboronProm" represented reform strategy of the military-industrial complex of Ukraine. The reform covers clear sequential steps: corporatization, audit, clusterization, technology protection and launching innovation platform.

Corporatization of UOP enterprises will allow creating a transparent management structure, Supervisory Board, establish common rules including those for international investors.

Reform Strategy provides for a transparent audit, which allow investors to objectively evaluate the opportunities and prospects for cooperation with the military-industrial complex of Ukraine.

Reform Strategy also provides for a transparent audit, allowing investors to objectively evaluate the opportunities and prospects for cooperation with the military-industrial complex of Ukraine. This platform will unite manufacturers, startups, investments and the military.

As part of the strategy, UOP will create five clusters, with the possibility of involving private companies, namely: aviation, armored vehicles, shipbuilding, high-precision weapons, radar and communications. According to this scheme the first aviation cluster – Ukrainian Aircraft Corporation – was created on the basis of the legendary "Antonov".
