VORONEZH, September 19 (RIA Novosti) – Part of Russia’s Rostec state corporation ,Voronezh based Sozvezdie, which is included in the Western sanctions list, has developed a set of communication devices capable of withstanding immersion in water and providing high-quality data transmission even with strong interference, more than a million times greater than the desired signal power.
"All the products can withstand immersion in water for two hours to a depth of up to one meter, operating at a temperature of minus 30 degrees Celcius (-22°F) to plus 50 degrees (122 °F)," the concern said in a statement Friday.
According to Sozvezdie, the Argon-E complex can determine the location of the user and his route with coordinates displayed on a monitor in real time.
The design can be used by law enforcement agencies, Russia’s Emergencies Ministry, and border guards. It is comparable to the best international designs, and is the only one of its kind on the domestic market.
On September 12, the European Union barred three major defense companies (Oboronprom, United Aircraft Corporation and Uralvagonzavod) from seeking finance on European capital markets and banned sales of dual-technology equipment to nine Russian defense companies, including the Kalashnikov Concern and Almaz-Antey.
