Scientific/research work and cooperation

Development of the best military hardware in the world is based on latest achievements in science and technology.

From the date of origin the Special design bureau (now JSC «RPC «KBM») was conducting extensive research that resulted in creation of the best mortars in the world. Relations with leading research institutes were initiated, strengthened, and broadened, innovative materials, components, and technologies were adopted.

In the early days of 1943, by order of Boris I. Shavyrin, the first bureau head, a technical counsel was established in the enterprise whose purpose was to preliminarily evaluate conceptual, technical and detail designs of weapon systems, performance reports, armament type plans, individual projects, issues put forward by the bureau personnel on their own initiative. Several years later the counsel name was changed to a scientific and technical counsel (STC).

The STC considers general issues of all missile systems under development and for the future. It also deals with issues of preparation by KBM employees of candidate's and doctoral theses.

The STC meets at least once a month. It includes Valery  M. Kashin, General Director and General Designer, Viktor A. Konovalov, First  Deputy General Director – R&D and Innovations Director, Sergey V. Pitikov, First Deputy General Director – Technical Director, heads of weapon-specific departments, leading specialists (totalling 21 persons). Scientific secretary is Aleksandr P. Shabalkin, D Phil (engineering).

KBM employs 6 doctors and 22 candidates of engineering, 12 postgraduates.

The research, scientific, and technical conference of young specialists is convened every year.
