Russia, Israel to Jointly Develop Onboard Electronics for MS-21 Aircraft
Published 8-06-2015, 06:21
The MS-21 passenger plane will replace the Tu-154 and Tu-134 aircraft. It is expected to make its maiden flight by Spring 2016. It is planned to produce annually up to 50 180-seat aircraft by 2018.

Russia’s KRET Concern and the Israeli defense company Elbit Systems Ltd will cooperate to develop the onboard electronic systems for the all-new Russian MS-21 (Yak-242) medium-range aircraft, the KRET press-office told RIA Novosti.

Elbit Systems is Israel's largest private defense contractor and has designed and modernized a wide range of weapons and military equipment, including UAVs, avionics, radio-radar systems, and artillery and missile guidance systems.

"Under the current agreement, Elbit Systems will supply the Ulyanovsk Instrument Making Bureau with the computer module which is part of the head-up display in the MS-21 cockpit. During the talks, we integrated details produced by the Ulyanovsk bureau and Elbit Systems. For the first time, we managed to integrate two separate development processes," KRET reported.

The company also said the two parties also discussed issues of equipment adjustment and preparation for the production of the module avionics for the MS-21 aircraft.

Earlier, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said the MS-21 is due to make its maiden flight by Spring 2016. It is planned to produce annually up to 50 180-seat aircraft by 2018.

The MS-21 is being designed to replace the Tu-154 and Tu-134 passenger planes. It is planned to be produced in the three modifications: the MS-21-200 (150 passenger seats), MS-21-300 (180 seats) and MS-21-400 (212 seats). It will be built at the Irkutsk Aircraft Factory.
