SUBJECT: EXTRANCHECK: POST-SHIPMENT VERIFICATION:

REFTEL: USDOC 10571

1. Unauthorized disclosure of the information provided
below is prohibited by Section 12C of the Export
Administration Act.

2. Reftel 1 requested a Post-shipment verification to
determine the legitimacy and reliability of the end-
user, Radio-Navigator Co., Ltd., Moscow, Russia. The
company is listed on BIS license application: NLR as
the ultimate consignee of one navigator pan/tilt 9hz
camera system. ECCN 6A993. The exporter is FLIR
Systems Inc., 70 Castilian Drive, Goleta, CA.

3. On January 11, 2008, Export Control Attache Peter
Liston and LES Natalya Shipitsina conducted the
requested post-shipment verification with Radio-
Navigator Co., Ltd., 15/2 Azovskaya st., Moscow,
Russia. The export control team met with Miroslav
Grishin, General Director.

4. Radio-Navigator Co., LTD was established and
registered in Moscow, Russia in 2002 as a Holding
Company. Radio-Navigator Co., LTD has approximately
35 employees, and also employs several contractors on
an as-needed basis.

5. Radio-Navigator CO., LTD specializes in maritime
equipment and produces much of their own in Murom,
Russia. They are one of the top three produces of
such equipment in Russia. In addition, they import
directly from China and Korea where they have
contracts for specific volume equipment.

6. Radio-Navigator Co., LTD signed a contract with
FLIR in Santa Barbara, CA in April 2007, to begin
importing FLIR products that do not require licenses.
Products are purchased and imported only after
customer orders are filled, not for inventory. Radio-
Navigator Co., LTD had sought to be a distributor of
FLIR's high-end equipment that does require export
licenses, however FLIR informed them that they do not
grand exclusive contracts for those products.

7. Radio-Navigator CO., LTD advised the ECO Liston
that the products that they produce have no military
use. They did state that they do have contacts in
Russian government services that are interested in
purchasing some of FLIR's product in the future.

8. Radio-Navigator Co., LTD purchased the FLIR
pan/tilt 9hz camera system for re-sale to a specific
customer and therefore it was not available to the ECO
Moscow team.

9. Recommendations: Post recommends Radio-Navigator
Co., Ltd., Moscow, Russia as reliable recipients of
sensitive U.S. origin commodities.
