PROIZVODSTVENNO-TEKHNICHESKY KOMPLEKS DUBNENSKOGO MASHINOSTROITELNOGO ZAVOD AO (Dubna Machine-Building Plant Production Technical Complex Co Ltd)
Founded in 1939, the Dubna Plant is an enterprise of the General Department of Aircraft Industry of the State Committee on Defence Industries of the Russian Federation. In the 1960s, it launched airframe production of the MiG-25 fighter and became a major producer of remotely piloted vehicles for Eastern bloc and other countries. As part of its restructuring under the Konversiya policy, since 1993, it has produced components for the Sukhoi Su-29 two-seat aerobatic aircraft and developed the Dubna-1/2 series of light aircraft. Two Su-29 fuselages were built in 2000.
The single-seat Dubna-I Shmel was simular to the current Osa. Dubna has an agreement to build light aircraft designed by MKB Raduga, whose precision-guided weapons are also manufactured by DMZ. The company had some 1,000 employees in early 2002 and is 60 per cent owned by the State.
