"Today, the enterprise is developing an active homing device for a prospective anti-ship missile, which will be used, among other things, on Su-57 fighter jets," Krivoruchko said.

According to him, a conference has been held at the Detal Design Bureau to discuss a possibility to conclude a contract with the Tactical Missile Corporation (KTRV) in the near future for the acquisition of the entire range of air-launched weapons for Su-57.

The Detal Design Bureau, an affiliate of the Tactical Missiles Corporation, manufactures components, including active homing devices for anti-ship missiles and air-to-air missiles, which are used by almost all Russian warplanes and combat helicopters.

Besides, the enterprise is developing prospective radar and navigational equipment and radio altimeters for drones and spacecraft
