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 Novo, Dubki Street 6, Moscow, Russia. The
company is listed on BIS license application: NLR as
the ultimate consignee of Ten (10) 12 lead integrated
circuits, three hundred (300) I.C. SP3T non-reflective
SMT switch, one hundred (100) I.C. switch SPDT, fifty
(50) voltage variable attenuator, NLR, and one hundred
fifty (150) I.C. DIV 4 prescaler DC electronic devices
and components. ECCN 3A001. Controlled for anti-
terrorism (AT), nuclear non-proliferation (NP),
missile technology (MT), and national security (NS)
reasons. The exporter is Hittite Microwave
Corporation, 20 Alpha Road, Chelmsford, MA 01824.

3. On September 25, 2008, Export Control Attach Peter
Liston and ICE LES Sergey Kishkimsky conducted the
requested post-shipment verification with JSC Novo,
Dubki Street 6, Moscow, Russia. The export control
team met with Vladimir Filippovsky, President, and
Andrey Kaznin, Commercial Director.

4. JSC (Joint Stock Company) Novo was established
circa 1992 and was founded by former Soviet officials
of State owned institutions. JSC Novo is located in a
stand-alone two-story office building that house their
production facility, administrative offices and sales
department. JSC Novo has 50 employees and
manufactures police and security electronics such as
detection equipment, x-ray, and metal detectors. JSC
Novo attends international security and police trade
shows as an exhibitor and has established an export
branch within their sales department.

5. The Export Control Attach office provided a copy
of the Commercial Invoice of the commodities for
subject cable to JSC Novo one day before the PSV
because Novo indicated that they do not believe that
they had been in receipt of any commodities that would
warrant the visit from the ECO. During the PSV visit
to Novo, Vladimir Filippovsky explained to the ECO
that he carefully reviewed the Commercial Invoice with
his Commercial Director and did not find any line
items that Novo purchased. Vladimir Filippovsky
stated that JSC Novo has a long and respected history
with the Intermediate Consignee Altex Co, and stated
that it is possible that Altex made the purchase and
stocked the line items in anticipation of orders from
JSC Novo in the future.


6. Recommendations: Post recommends JSC Novo, Dubki
Street 6, Moscow, Russia as reliable recipients of
sensitive U.S. origin commodities.
