E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: ETTC KOMC RS
SUBJECT: BLUE LANTERN PRE-LICENSE END USE CHECK ON
APPLICATION 05-050127753

REF: MOSCOW 1653

1. This is an action message. See paragraphs 2-7.

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: this license application is a
re-submittal of a case that was Returned Without Action due
to a previous Blue Lantern check that was closed unfavorably
because the Russian entities involved in the transaction
refused post inquiries (reftel). The U.S. applicant has now
provided specific points of contact for these Russian
entities.

4. The Russian entities listed on this license application
had no previous 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.

5. ACTION: Please contact the Foreign End User, Russian
Agency for 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.

6. 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.

7. 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
FASS is usually 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.
