It originates from Kronstadt laboratory of the prominent Russian scientist and inventor Aleksandr Popov. Soon the company becomes known as the "Radio telegraph factory of the Maritime Ministry".

1924

The enterprise designed and manufactured a vacuum tube receiver and tested 100 kW tube prototypes for 200 kW broadcast station.

1930 - 1937

The company designed transmitters for trunk communication and high-powered broadcast stations including the most powerful one at that time — 500 kW Comintern radio.

Development of the first domestic VHF TV transmitter and electromechanical TV system which was used by Leningrad TV station for experimental TV broadcasting.

1943

Development and commission of the 1200 kW radio (Kuybyshevskaya Oblast).

1967

All-union TV center Ostankino began broadcasting four TV and three radio programs in the VHF frequency range using the equipment developed and manufactured by the company. The company already equipped the majority of domestic broadcast centers with more than 500 TV stations.

1985

The enterprise designed a first domestic solid-state TV transmitter and put VHF FM stereo transmitters into production.

1994

Foundation of MART JSC.

1999

The company starts batch production of the transistorized VHF FM broadcasting transmitters "INEY" (from 30W up to 4 kW).

2000-2002

The company produces the first Russian digital TV transmitter broadcasting in the experimental digital TV zone in Nizhniy Novgorod and the first commercial DVB-T transmitter broadcasting in St. Petersburg.

2001

Our company launches the production of a new line of 100-5000W "Onega" TV transmitters (I-V bands) and  1-10 W "Onega-M" TV transmitters for all TV bands.

2000-2008 гг.

The company designs a line of authentic antenna-feeder devices for television and radio broadcasting such as: transmitting antenna “Dvoinoi Zigzag”, slot antennas for IV-V TV bands, radiating vibrators for VHF broadcasting, radiating panel III for TV band based on zigzag-transmitting radiators, “Skew” type antenna system, antenna-feeder devices for digital television and radio broadcasting. It also undertakes modernization works of the Ostankino radio-television center (Moscow). The company starts development and production of analog digital television transmitters (ADTV transmitters) that include the option of being used for digital television.

2008-2011

The company developed line of authentic antenna-feeder devices for television and radio broadcasting, such as: transmitting antenna "Dvoinoi Zigzag", slot antennas for IV-V TV bands, radiating vibrators for VHF broadcasting, radiating panel III for TV band based on zigzag-transmitting radiators, "Skew" type antenna system, antenna-feeder devices for digital television and radio broadcasting. There was a modernization of the Ostankino radio-television center (Moscow). The company started development and production of analogue-digital television transmitters (ADTV transmitters) with the option for digital television.

2008-2015

A new line of antenna-feeder devices for TV (III, IV and V bands) and VHF radio broadcasting is designed, as well as new band pass filters with critical and non-critical spectral masks, combiners adapted to digital television. The company also designs and starts production of broadband panel “Sivash” antennas of various powers (IV-V TV bands). Within the Federal program “Digital television and radio broadcasting in the Russian Federation for 2009-2018” numerous regions in Russia are supplied with “Sivash” antennas for digital TV broadcasting.

2011-2015

The line of VHF transmitters (“INEY-M”) is updated; digital signal forming is used in transmitter exciters. The company carries out research into increasing energy efficiency of TV transmitters and launches batch production of TV transmitters based on Doherty concept, various types of digital HF exciters including universal digital HF transmitter and single-panel radio signal conditioner are designed.
