Our achievements

npo gipo made many important advances in the development of  optical component elements and optoelectronic equipment, a number of results were obtained for the first time in the ussr and russia and some of them were unique worldwide.  
the most important achievements are: 
  • the development of techniques for growing crystals of  mercury-doped germanium, indium antimonide and arsenide, cadmium antimonide, zinc sulphide and selenide, tellurium- and cobalt-doped germanium, ternary compounds of  mercury-cadmium-tellurium (hgcdte), lead-tin-tellurium (pbsnte) and lead-tin-selenium (pbsnse) (1968 - 1980);
  • the implementation of series fabrication of IR detectors for man-portable  air-defense systems MANPADS (1970 - 1980);
  • the development of radiometric and photometric systems and IR facilities, such as  apparatuses   "Radian-1", "Radian-2", VE-143, FKM-71, FKM-73, "Kama", IRV-75, "Ritm", "Izumrud", "Sekunda", "Klimat", MSU-V and onboard star globes BZG-1, BZG-1М, BZG-2, for use aboard manned and unmanned space probes Mars, Venera, Almaz, Soyuz, Kosmos, Meteor, spaceships Salyut and Mir (1962 - 1990);the development and implementation of series fabrication of various frequency diffraction gratings, hologram gratings and computer-generated holograms, narrowband hologram filters  (1963 - nowadays);
  • the development of technologies of permanent connection of optical elements by the method of deep optical contact (1972);
  • the development of technologies for fabricating aspherical components up to  250-600 mm in diameter, the creation of a system of hologram methods for monitoring and certifying all types of aspherical surfaces and spherical mirrors up to 10 m in diameter (1970 – nowadays);
  • the creation of dielectric mirrors with low losses for gyroscopes of missile systems;
  • the development of methods for manufacturing large-sized dielectric mirrors with increased laser beam damage threshold (1976 - 1980);
  • the creation of a complex of  spectroradiometric equipment  intended for the probing of background-and-object situations and optical properties of the atmosphere with the use of  various carriers, including flying laboratories built around a YAK-42 aircraft and an MI-8 helicopter (1982 - 1993);
  • a complex of technologies for manufacturing high-performance interference protective, antireflection, reflecting and dichroic coatings (1970 - nowadays);
  • the creation of a complex of astronomical radiation source simulators and photometric facilities for their calibration and certification;
  • the creation of a complex of equipment for metrological provision of IR engineering – VE-1227, NSI-KMU, NSI-KMT, "Izmeritel-3Ts", IKLDS-1500, military standards  "Zenker" and "Zernograd" (1980 - nowadays);
  • the development of samples of airborne IR surveillance equipment   "Elf", "Granit", "Spectr-2", "Khrizolit-2" and a system of first-generation thermal
  • direction-finding equipment "Mak-UL", "Mak-UT", "Mak-F", "Mak-V", "Mak-FM" for protection of far ranging and front line aircraft and others (1974 - 1989);
  • the creation (in collaboration with GOI) of models of optical radiation for various objects and backgrounds (1985);
  • the creation of a complex of shadow and interference devices, hologram interferometers  to get gas flows visualized inside wind tunnels and along aeroballistic tracks, with a field-of-view of up to 1000 mm (1980 - 1986);
  • the development and implementation of series fabrication of thermal imaging sights 1PN65, 1PN79, 1PN79-1, 1PN86-VI, 1PN79М(М-1), 1PN79-2, 1PN79М-3 for mobile and man-portable antitank missile systems (PTRK) "Kornet", "Kornet-E", "Konkurs-M", "Metis-M" and "Metis-M1" and for systems "Malakhit", "Gran" and test and checkout equipment  for these sights (1980 – nowadays);
  • the development and implementation of series fabrication of second-generation thermal imaging channels (TPVK-24N, TPVK-24NS) for promising airborne round-the-clock surveillance and sighting stations and third-generation thermal imaging channels for various weapons systems and military equipment (2000 – nowadays).
