Production association Polet – Khrunichev’s Omsk-based affiliated enterprise – is a regular participant in the Omsk exhibition. Polet’s presentation always attracts officials from government and related industries throughout the world, as well as many other visitors. Polet’s exhibits to be on display this year include mock –ups of space rockets,aviation techniques, security equipment and products for use in various sectors of national economy.

Russia is consolidating its major industries to ensure quality control and make the products more competitive on the global market.

On February 3, 2007, the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin signed Decree “On the Federal State Unitary Enterprise “The M.V. Khrunichev Space Research & Production Center”, in a move that consolidated four Russian launch vehicle and spacecraft component manufacturers under the control of Khrunichev Space Center and made Khrunichev the largest Russia‘s space industry company.

Under the Decree, four state-run rocket and space enterprises become branches of the Khrunichev Space Center. These are the Voronezh Mechanical Plant, A.M.Isaev Chemical Engineering Design Bureau (also known as “Khimmash,” in Korolev, Moscow Region), Moscow Enterprise for Equipment Configuration “Dlina” and Production Association “Polyot” (in Omsk).
