The 2nd of April marks the 73rd anniversary of Agat enterprise. On April 1, 1942, Joseph Stalin signed the Decree of the State Defense Committee, and the very next day, on April 2, by the order of the People's Commissariat of the Shipbuilding Industry of the USSR, the Special Design Bureau (SDB) of the People's Commissariat of the Shipbuilding Industry was established.
In 1942, the SDB was reorganised into Maritime Research Institute No. 1 (MRI No.1) and later, during the post-war period, into Central Maritime Research Institute (CMRI). In 1972, on the basis of CMRI, Agat Central Research Institute was founded, which, in its turn, was later reorganised into Agat Scientific Production Association. In 1978, it was awarded the Order of Lenin for its successful work.
In 2004, by the Decree of the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin, on the basis of Agat Scientific Production Association Federal State Unitary Entreprise, during the integration of the enterprises of the Russian naval engineering, Concern Morinformsystem-Agat Joint-Stock Company was formed. As of today, Concern Morinformsystem-Agat JSC comprises more than 15 enterprises all over the country and is rightly regarded as the leader in the development of information management systems for the needs of the Navy.
We would like to congratulate our beloved enterprise upon its anniversary. We wish the employees of the entreprise further creative growth and success in consolidating the defence capacity of the country and in increasing the fighting efficiency of the Navy!
