Technology description
The organization of own batch production of world-class metal-ceramic X-ray tubes of the new generation using nanocomposite materials and development on their basis of devices for medical and technical diagnostics.

Novelty
There is the same product on the market, but the technology has higher quality basic specifications
The main advantages of metal-ceramic X-ray tubes are:
• replacing glass cases on ceramic, which has the greater thermal conductivity and significantly higher electric durability, high electric resistance and their high stability in time provides the ability to develop a small x-ray tubes with increased power and increased operating voltage.
• the ability to realize design with a grounded case, at the same time reducing dimensions and weight of radiator, exclude the secondary e-emission of the x-ray tube to increase efficiency and quality of x-ray radiation

Solved problems
The revival of the domestic electronics and instrument making. 100% decrease depending on domestic production from critical imports. The progress of a hi-tech export potential of Ukraine. Support of own commodity producer and creation of new workplaces.

Stage of Development
Technology is ready for commercial implementation
For dental and ward metal-ceramic x-ray tubes conducted technical and medical tests, approved TU (Ukrainian Specification). To photofluorographic tubes, tubes for diagnostic x-ray devices, mammographic and spectrographic tubes were held technical tests and developed TU (Ukrainian Specification) projects. Funds are needed for the State registration in the amount of more than 500000 UAH, and more than one year of time.

Markets
The x-ray tubes represent most dynamically developing class of electrovacuum devices now, world market is estimated approximately in 10 billion US dollars.
The potential need for the x-ray tubes only for Ukraine reaches 10000 pieces in year .

Competitors, substitute goods, entry barriers
Competitors: JSC(joint-stock company) "Svetlana" Russia, "Comet" Switzerland.
Companies: “Philips”, “Varian”, “Toshiba”.

Risks of the project and anti-risk activities
1. Dumping prices by other manufacturers;
2. Force majeure
Anti-risk measures:
• If the foreign companies will refuse to buy the tubes, then there are 14000 x-ray cabinets in Ukraine among which we’ll be able to find partners;
• 95% of raw materials are manufactured and purchased in Ukraine, only a 5% are import;
• The prices of an x-ray tubes are 30% lower than competitors has.
