INSTITUTE ENGINEERING SCIENCE URAL BRANCH RAS,
YEKATERINBURG, RUSSIA, LICENSE NO. D352204


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, JSC Institute Engineering Science Ural Branch
RAS, Yekaterinburg, Russia. The company is listed on
BIS license application D352204 as the ultimate
consignee of a thermal imager, model: TH9100. This
item is controlled for national security and regional
stability reasons under ECCN 6A003. The licensee is
Mikron Infrared Inc., 16 Thornton Road, Oakland, NJ,
07436.

3. On August 21, 2007, Export Control Attache Donald
Pearce and FSN Natalya Shipitsina conducted the
requested post-shipment verification with Joint Stock
Company Institute Engineering Science Ural Branch,
Russian Academy of Science, 34 Komsomolskaya St.,
Yekaterinburg, Russia. The export control team met
with Sergey Smirnov, Deputy Director.

4. The Institute was founded in 1986 as a division of
the Urals branch of the Russian Academy of Science
(RAS). The institute focuses on fundamental research
in topics such as mechanical engineering, machine
construction, transportation, and information
technology systems. The Joint Stock Company conducts
research and development for private clients wishing
to utilize the design and mechanical experience of the
faculty of the Institute. Funding for the Institute
is provided by RAS and from the profits of the JSC.
The Institute employs 180, including 80 researchers
and professors on staff.

5. The commodity in reftel is used in the study of
machine and mechanical systems. The camera allows
researchers to precisely map thermal stress and
friction points in a machine or device, and allows for
a careful examination of the failure of devices to
improve design and fabrication of parts. The camera
allows the researcher to observe the destruction of
parts, in real time, while noting the dynamics of the
failing device. The purchase of the camera was funded
by a government grant to RAS.

6. The team was shown an NEC Thermo-Tracer TH 9100WL,
serial number 6021101. When not in use the camera is
stored in a safe located on the fifth floor. Mr.
Smirnov is personally responsible for the camera,
issuing it to the operators when required. Along with
Mr. Smirnov, there are two other operators who are
trained and authorized to use the camera. Mr. Smirnov
is familiar with the conditions of the license.

7. Recommendations: Post recommends JSC Institute
Engineering Science Ural Branch RAS, Yekaterinburg,
Russia as reliable recipients of sensitive U.S. origin
commodities.
