OREANDA-NEWS  Specialists of the Obninsk Research and Production Enterprise (ONPP) "Technology" named after A.G. Romanishin will create new bulletproof glasses for armored vehicles using multilayer technology. This was announced by the head of the sector of the ONPP research laboratory Dmitry Chechin in the Rostec project "Our Crash", the issue of which was published in the Telegram channel of the state corporation.

The representative of the enterprise noted that combined glasses from silicate and polycarbonate layers are created at the ONPP. Now monolithic polycarbonate glazing is used in the production of the Comet boat and military aircraft, and in the future it will be received by high-speed trains and civilian aircraft.

"The materials that we use in these glasses will be used in the glazing of armored cars. Such work is underway," Chechin said. He stressed that armored glass on cars is, as a rule, a flat multilayer structure made of silicate glass.

In September, it became known that Russia began the production of import-substituted glazing of crew cabins for Sukhoi Superjet 100 passenger aircraft. Russian glazing is installed on a prototype aircraft that is undergoing flight tests.

In March 2022, Rostec reported that the specialists of ONPP Technologiya had proposed a solution that would reduce radar visibility and improve the optical characteristics of the glass of inconspicuous aircraft.
