Decades of conducting on-board and ground-based equipment development and information support have made NII TP a unique enterprise

Joint-Stock Company “Research Institute of Precision Instruments” (JSC RIPI) brings together professional developers and manufacturers of various radio engineering and software-hardware products. Today the abbreviation of the RIPI means skills and proficiency of our scientists, engineers and workers to design and manufacture various radio engineering equipment and software-hardware complexes that meet the highest requirements of the Russian aerospace industry.

We produce diverse hardware, which essentially supplements functionality of humans through constantly raising the intellectual level of its employees and modernizing facilities with emerging and advanced technologies.
We are good at producing various electronic instruments such as antennas, transmitters, receivers and computing facilities. Using these devices, we produce sophisticated hardware and software complexes. We have learnt to process high-rate information flows, which circulate in produced devices and complexes, using innovative methods of information security control.
