KALUGA, July 29./ TASS/ The Kaluga telegraph equipment plant has launched the production of ship navigation systems that were previously imported to Russia from Ukraine, the company commercial director Konstantin Shamatulskiy told TASS on Wednesday.
"These products are no longer available in Russia. The navigators are designed for both military and civilian ships," Shamatulskiy said.
The Breeze-KM-K system was developed by the navigation systems design bureau, and the Kaluga plant just launched equipment manufacturing. The modernization of the production line was not necessary for the process.
"The work began after an order from the Russian Ministry of Defense," said Shamatulsky. The production volume for the navigation systems and the amount of financing for the project was not disclosed.
Breeze-KM-K is shipboard equipment for the consumer satellite navigation systems such as GLONASS, GPS and WAAS. It is intended to determine the current position, ground speed vector of a fixed point and the current time.
