"In late July, 2016, Russia’s Navy started working out technical specifications for the Almaz-Antey Corporation to upgrade the Kinzhal shipborne surface-to-air missile system. A ship, on which this work will be carried out, is currently being chosen," the spokesman said.

According to the spokesman, the Shipbuilding and Armament Research Institute is currently preparing technical specifications for the upgrade of the Kinzhal and Gibka-R systems.

The work will be carried out in Serpukhov near Moscow on the premises of the Ratep Enterprise, a subsidiary of the Almaz-Antey Corporation.

According to the spokesman, the corporation will be loaded with work for 10-15 years to come.

"The use of a new element base will allow extending the service life of [Kinzhal] systems mounted on all operational Project 1155 ships. This will also reduce the system’s price and allow providing the Navy with a required number of these systems," the spokesman said.

Also, Russia’s Navy is working out technical specifications on a future shipborne self-defense surface-to-air missile system.

"In accordance with an instruction of the Russian Navy’s Main Command, the Shipbuilding and Armament Research Institute is preparing technical specifications for the development of a shipborne self-defense surface-to-air missile system," the spokesman added.
