1911 - year of foundation

On 29th November 1911 the Admiralty-Council of Russia approves "Regulations on radio telegraph laboratory" thus the first Russian scientific and production Radio Company is founded. 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".


The Maritime Ministry factory is officially renamed "Radiotelegraph Plant named after Komintern". Construction of the first Russian Central Radiotelegraph Station that will later be known as the "Komintern Radio Station" is finished in Moscow.


The company designs and manufactures the first radio receiver on tubes.


The company designs and manufactures sample test items of 100 kW tubes based on Bonch-Bruevich technique for an experimental 200 kW radio station.


In 1930s the Komintern Radio Plant expands and progresses eventually evolving into an industrial complex which is able to compete successfully with American, German and British companies. The company’s production encompasses almost the entire range of transmitters, receivers and radio stations equipment for civil and military needs, mainly for the Navy and army; power radio engineering being its main specialization. During this period the company designs and manufactures point-to-point radio communication transmitters and a number of power radio broadcasting stations, including the most powerful for its time 500kW Komintern Radio Station.


The company designs the first electromechanical TV complex (TV transmitters and TV receivers) in Russia used by Leningrad Television Broadcasting Center in its experimental TV broadcasting. The test sample of a TV receiver with the set of technical documentation attached is transferred to Kozitsky factory for batch production.


Our company embarks on a program of theoretical and experimental research in the field of electronic television and develops the first Russian power VHF TV transmitter. In 1938 Leningrad Television Broadcasting Center starts regular broadcasting.  


The first television centers in Moscow, Leningrad and Kiev were put into operation. 


The world’s most powerful 1200 kW radio station (Kuibyshev region) was build and commissioned.


The company designs the required equipment for the Russian high definition television system and begins production of a line of serial TV stations and various automated VHF-FM radio stations. The company is awarded the Order of the Red Banner of Labour (1965) in recognition of its valuable contribution to the country’s development. 


Soviet radio-television center Ostankino (Moscow) begins broadcasting of the four television programs on the 1st, 3rd, 8th and11th frequency channels and three radio programs in VHF band using the equipment designed and manufactured by the company. Television centers across Russia equipped with 500 power TV stations of the new generation.


The Komintern Research and Production Company for power radio engineering is founded.


The company developed the first Russian transistorized TV transmitter as well as the first TV radio station (IV-V bands) of the new generation and also started production of the VHF FM stereophonic radio station.


Corporatization of "RIPR" JSC, "MART" JSC and "Priboy" JSC on the basis of Komintern Reseach and Production Company. In 1994 "MART" JSC company was founded which later became one of the successors to the oldest radio technical company in Russia.


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


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.


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.

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.


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.


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.
