The base of product engineering services covers all product life cycle, starting from design drafting, prototype production, carrying out all types of testing, serial production, repair and coming up to products upgrading; meantime, when product working life over it goes through recycling process services.

The corporation has the certificate of right to perform foreign trade operations with military-purpose products concerning training of personnel, maintenance and repair of samples previously delivered, as well as delivery of spare parts, training and warlike stores.

Energetic efforts are put in redesign of basic product line. For the moment the following below products are on their final stage of development:

* airborne modular tactical guided missiles in the style of Kh-38ME;

* Kh-59MK2 airborne guided missile;

* Kh-58UShK anti-radiation missile;

* KAB-1500LG-F-E corrected air bomb;

* "Moskit-MBE" anti-ship missile weapon system equipped with anti-ship missile 3M-80MBE.

Airborne modular tactical guided missiles in the style of Kh-38ME is designed to engage armored, hardened, easy of approach single or group ground target, as well as surface targets in the shoreline.

Anti-radar missile Kh-58UShKE with all wave passive radar homing head and an autonomous control system is designed to destroy ground-based radars which produce pulsing and continuous waves.

Airborne guided missile Kh-59MK2 is designed to destroy unmoved ground targets with well-known coordinates of location without radar, infrared and optical contrast towards nearby surroundings. The missile realizes "launch and forget" principle of work due to autonomous identification of the nearby terrain.

KAB-1500LG-F-E is designed to destroy stationary ground and sea surface pinpoint targets such as concrete shelters, railway and road bridges, military units, ammunition depots, railway terminals, warships and transport vessels.

Anti-ship missile system "Moskit-MBE" has enhanced range of fire. High supersonic speed (up to 2900 km/h) with maximally low flight level (H=10-20 M) at a terminal flight phase and evasive maneuver guarantee high efficiency of the system in case of anti-missile attacks from the side of enemy.
