Institute of ELECTRONIC MEASUREMENTS (IEM) KVARZ is the largest
enterprise in Russia for development and manufacture of radio
electronic measurement instrumentation.
was founded in 1949 in accordance with the Government Act of the
USSR Council of
Ministers as R&D Institute (NII-11) with a pilot plant in an effort
to further develop the
basis of a radiolocation industry branch.
IEM KVARZ traces its origin from the famous Radio Laboratory of
Nizhny Novgorod which was founded in accordance with Lenin’s decree
dated December 2, 1918.
Since its foundation the Institute started R&D works aimed at
finding new trends and new
types of radio electronic equipment. The first Standard Signal
Generators, Spectrum Analyzers and Electronic Voltmeters were
developed and manufactured here.
May 1956 in accordance with the government act NII-11 was fixed as a
leading institute in
the sphere of electronic measurement equipment and was given a new
name – the Central R&D Institute (CRDI-11 and from January 1967 the
Gorky R&D Instrument Producing Institute).
the end of 80s the Institute accomplished 33 % of R&D
works of the former USSR in this branch of activity.
2004 the Institute was given a status of a State Basic Scientific
Centre in the sphere of precision measurements. Later in 2006 the
Institute was given a status of Federal Scientific Production
Nowadays the Institutes develops measurement instrumentation of a
new generation in the mm-wave range up to 178 GHz. More emphasis is
placed on further development of
scientific-production base. The program of the production equipment
and reconstruction allows to master new high technologies.
IEM KVARZ is the leader in radio measurements in Russia.
