MOSCOW, March 11. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin will hold the single day of military products’ acceptance at the Russian National Defense Center on Friday, the Kremlin press service reported.
"The supreme commander-in-chief will hear reports made by the leadership of the Russian Defense Ministry, defense industry companies, military-building complex, the commanders of military units and formations on the results of delivery of weapons and military equipment to the army and the results of the Russian Armed Forces’ infrastructure development in 2015 and the progress of the state defense order fulfillment in the first quarter of 2016", the press service said.
Representatives of the federal executive and legislative power bodies, the heads of state corporations and the leadership of the General Prosecutor's Office will take part in the work of the military products’ acceptance single day.
The single day of acceptance of weapons and military equipment that are entering service with the army, as well as military and social infrastructure facilities of the Russian Armed Forces is held quarterly. These activities take place with the participation of representatives of defense companies and are a kind of an interim report on the work within the state defense order fulfilment. In addition to the signing of the armaments’ transfer and acceptance acts, the fulfilment of the state defense order requirements by different companies and compliance with the approved schedule is analyzed.
The Russian National Defense Control Center was officially put on combat duty on December 1, 2014. The Center is a big complex with numerous channels of incoming and outgoing information.
The most important and secret information is transmitted through alternative communications channels by the equipment that differs from the main systems of the Center, which guarantees its resistance to cyberattacks.
The new Center comprises the Control Center of Strategic Nuclear Forces (which oversees issues of use of weapons of mass destruction), the Combat Control Center (which analyses threats) and the Daily Activities Control Center (which deals with procurement issues). According to Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu, the Centre is a new tool which "will allow conducting a continuous analysis of the environment and developing means of responding towards changes and rapidly coordinating the activity of federal bodies of the executive power in the defense sphere." The Centre handles real-time information about all the troops’ formations and facilities. The Center’s hardware and software complex is capable of simulating crisis situations not only around the borders of Russia, but also anywhere in the world.
