The company’s strategic target is the development and production of the instruments and systems which provide the integrated safety in the area of transport, energy, industry, housing and utilities infrastructure. The production manufactured by JSC Avangard is used not only by dozens companies in Russia, but also by the residents of St. Petersburg.
The use of Gas and Structural Safety Monitoring System at potentially hazardous places provides real-time monitoring of the state of critical elements within infrastructure and timely technical control and support to prevent dangerous and critical situations, as well as to prevent man-made disasters.
The development of SAW based RFID System with the use of passive tags operating at the frequency 2.4 GHz made it possible to design the highly competitive systems of automatic identification of the vehicles, railway cars and their components, containers with hazardous or special cargo.
The company has designed permanently installed systems and portable devices for detecting and identifying poisonous, explosive and narcotic substances which are used in anti-terrorism security systems.

Currently, the company has implemented its most ambitious project – design and construction of a new Microsystems Engineering Center (“clean rooms”) with the area of about 1200 sq.m. The most advanced equipment from the world leading suppliers was installed there to manufacture micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) and the devices based on surface acoustic waves (SAW) and the other products which meet the highest quality requirements. The Center was put into operation in 2014.
