TAGS: BEXP ETRD ETTC RS
SUBJECT: EXTRANCHECK: POST-SHIPMENT VERIFICATION:
TECHNOLOGICAL INSTITUTE OF APPLIED MICROELECTRONICS,
NOVOISBIRSK, RUSSIA, LICENSE NO. D326546

REFTEL: USDOC 10443

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

2. Reftel requested a Post-shipment verification to
determine the legitimacy and reliability of the end-
user, Technological Institute of Applied
Microelectronics, Novoisbirsk, Russia. The company is
listed on BIS license application D326546 as the
ultimate consignee of two (2) omega/thermovision A10
18mm camera systems. These items are controlled for
anti-terrorism, national security, nuclear non
proliferation, regional stability and UN sanctions
reasons under ECCN 6A003. The licensee is Indigo
Systems Corporation, 70 Castilian Drive, Goleta, CA
93117.

3. On December 7, 2007, Export Control Office Moscow
received reftel cable and initiated contact with
stated POC. On February 6, 2008 per telephone
conversation with Eduard Demyanov of the Technical
Institute of Applied Microelectronics, LES Natalya
Shipitsina was advised that the actual end-user is
Kemerovsky Metallurgical Plant, Novokurznetsky,
Russia. The ECO was advised that the Institute made
some modifications to the subject commodity and then
shipped them to their client, Kemerovsky Metallurgical
Plant, in 2005. Eduard Demyanov of the Institute of
Applied Microelectronics was not able to provide a POC
within Kemerovsky Metallurgical Plant to the ECO. On
March 17, 2008 LES Natalya Shipitsina spoke with the
POC of Pergam, the Ultimate Consignee, in an attempt
to locate a POC within Kemerovsky Metallurgical Plant
with no success. The Kemerovsky Metallurgical Plant
employs more than 5000 people and without a POC for
the actual sale of the two (2) omega/thermovision A10
18mm camera systems the ECO cannot conduct the PSV.

4. Recommendations: Post cannot repeat cannot verify
that the commodities in reftel are being used in
accordance with terms of the export license. Post
does not consider the Institute of Applied
Microelectronics, Novoisbirsk, Russia as a reliable
recipient of sensitive U.S. origin commodities.
