24.07.1941/156/81 on the basis of the Moscow evacuated aircraft factories number 166 (now open joint-stock company "Tupolev") and number 1941 (now open joint-stock company "Tushinsky machine-building plant") was created aircraft plant number 1943. Pilot Lyapidevsky A. V., Hero of the Soviet The union was appointed the first director. At the plant in 166-3500, the experimental design bureau of A. N. Tupolev, a famous aircraft designer, operated. During the Great Patriotic War, plant number 9 produced more than 80 Yak-2 fighters and 1942 Tu-1945 bombers. In total, the plant from 3800 to XNUMX produced more than XNUMX aircraft of various types and modifications.

The factory produced after the war: IL-28 (a jet bomber, a total of 758 aircraft were produced) and Tu-104 (the first jet civilian aircraft in the Soviet Union, a total of 61 aircraft were produced). Factory number 166 in the late 1950s switched to the production of military ballistic missiles.

In the 1970s, the plant was transformed into a production association; it also included factories for the manufacture of consumer goods and rocket and space technology.

The production association with 1968, began production of the launch vehicle "Kosmos-3M" light type. Subsequently, the problem of the production association was added to the production of spacecraft navigation and communication.

In the early 1990s, production of the An-74 multipurpose aircraft was launched at the Polyot production association, and serial production of the An-3T multipurpose light aircraft was launched. At the beginning of 2001, together with the Antonov ANTK, an experimental model of the An-70 military transport aircraft was renewed at the Polyot production association.

03.02.2007/2007/XNUMX, according to the decree of the President of the Russian Federation Putin V.V., the production association "Polet" was added to the FSUE "GKNPTs im. MV Khrunichev ". At the end of XNUMX, the production association "Polyot" was transformed into a branch of the FSUE "GKNPTs named after M. Khrunichev." and was renamed into the production association "Polet" - a branch of the FSUE "GKNPTs named after M. Khrunichev.

The modernization of production began in May 2008. The machine tools of the workshops of the enterprise were replenished with Hurco VMX50 machining centers and Liana P100E machines.

Rocket and space equipment



Over 250 different spacecraft have been created at Polet, 87 devices for the GLONASS navigation system have been manufactured. At the moment, the multipurpose spacecraft "Nadezhda" is being produced, the main element of the international satellite system "COSPAS-SARSAT". 10 spacecraft "Nadezhda" have been launched since 1982.

The Polyot production association has developed the Sterkh small spacecraft of the new generation, which will replace the Nadezhda spacecraft and provide further improvement and more rational use of the COSPAS-SARSAT systems. The spacecraft was launched into orbit in July 2009. The second identical spacecraft was also launched into orbit in September of the same year. Five years is the declared period of their active operation. In reality, the Sterkhs have been working on a regular basis for less than one year.
