TAGS: DA ETTC KOMC RS UK
SUBJECT: BLUE LANTERN PRE-LICENSE END USE CHECK ON
APPLICATION 05-050101397


1. This is an action message. See paragraphs 2-6.

2. The Department's Office of Defense Trade Controls
Compliance (PM/DTCC) requests post assistance in conducting a
pre-license check for the export of radiation tolerant DC/DC
converters to Russia. Post is requested to complete this
Blue Lantern check within 30 days. Lack of response to a
Blue Lantern check will affect pending and future licenses
involving parties to this license.

3. Reason for request: the Russian entities listed on this
license application have no licensing history with our
office. The requested commodity is designed for use in low
earth orbit satellites and launch vehicles. The license
application states that the commodity will be used in a fire
alarm and security system (FASS) at a nuclear power plant.

4. ACTION: Please contact the Foreign End User, Russian
Ministry of Atomic Energy, to determine if they can confirm
this specific order for components, and the use of these
components by the Foreign Consignee TENZOR for a FASS
intended for the Novovoronezh Nuclear Power Plant.

5. Contact the Novovoronezh Nuclear Power Plant. Inquire
with Novovoronezh to ascertain if they can confirm this
specific order for components, and the use of these
components by the Foreign Consignee TENZOR for a FASS
intended for the plant.

6. Finally, please contact Foreign Consignee JSC Instrument
Plant TENZOR. Ask TENZOR to explain why they need radiation
tolerant satellite components for the FASS of Novovoronezh.
(A nuclear plant expert contacted by PM/DTCC did not
understand why radiation tolerant components would be used in
a FASS because such systems are not located in radioactive
areas.) Also ask TENZOR if all of the requested components
will be used in the Novovoronezh plant FASS, or were any
extra components ordered for stockpiling and use on another
program? END ACTION.
