Ukraine’s SE Scientific Technical Complex "Impulse" implemented the State Defense Order 2017, launching production of the troop command and control systems, essential for the Ukrainian Army.
In 2017, product sales amounted to UAH 15.8 mln, while the company, employing some 50 specialists, payed UAH 5.2 mln in taxes, according to the press service of Ukroboronprom, the country’s major arms holding.
For comparison, in 2014, Impulse saw UAH 2.7 million losses, and in certain periods its workers were forced to switch to part-time.
However, thanks to effective anti-crisis measures, "Impulse" has over the past three years managed to fully restore scientific and production operations, now earning a stable profit and supplying the military with essential military equipment.
