"...Novokhatny Andrey Alexandrovich - the organizer and irreplaceable director of the research-production association "Impulse" from 1958 until 1987, was born in 1925. The organizer and irreplaceable director of the Severodonetsk research-production association "Impulse" from 1958 until 1987.
Andrei Nowokhatny started his career at the Novo-Groznensky oil-refining plant, where he worked at first as an engineer, and later - as a head of a monitoring and automatic machinery department (1952- 1958). In 1958 he started to work at the Lisichansk branch of the Institute of Automatic Machinery of the State Planning Committee of the Ukrainian SSR. In 1959 he became its director. Due to his active efforts and a high organizational skills his branch was developing rapidly and successfully implemented some tasks of state programs. In 1964 the branch was reorganized into Scientific and Research Institute of Control Computing Machines, and in 1972 it became a research and Production Center - "Impulse", which was the largest in the country and united several big scientific organizations and production enterprises. Being a Director General, A.Novokhatny successfully combined research and production developments supervision and their implementations into the most important and unique operating systems, such as automated system of airline tickets reservation and sale "Siren" (1968-1973), an automated system
Andrey Novokhatny is a Severodonetsk honorable citizen, awarded with the medals "For Service in Battle", "For the Victory over Germany", "For Taking of Berlin" (1945) and with the orders "Red Banner" (1966), "October Revolution" (1971), "Red Labor Banner" (1976), "People's Friendship" (1981), II degree "Great Patriotic War" (1986).

"...Resanov Vladislav Vasilievich, scientific advisor of the Severodonetsk research-production association "Impulse" from 1958 until 1995 (previously Severodonetsk branch of the SDB-245 of the Ministry of instrument building of the USSR).
V.Rezanov took an active part in the formation and realization of the branch, Union and international programs of the operating techniques creation and implementation; he supervised the most important elaborations in this sphere in the USSR. It was namely him who managed to mobilize the team for elaboration of the system engineering facilities, to form a creative atmosphere of excitement about new business and selfless devotion to the common goal.
In 1954 V.Rezanov was appointed chief designer of the Aggregate system of computer technique facilities (ASVT). The work was done according to the Union's plan; the machines M-1000, M-2000, M-3000 were manufactured as series at the Kiev plant of control computing machines, the Severodonetsk instrument-making plant, and Tbilisi plant of control computing machines. On the ASVT basis the scientists and engineers created several control systems of economical and defense significance. Among them was a famous "Siren" system of airline seat reservation, which was the first working system of massive service.
Since 1968 V.Rezanov is the chief designer of the family of M-6000 and M-7000 ASCT models, which became the foundation to construct the systems of control over the processes in almost all spheres of economy and in some defense sectors of the USSR. For ten years Kiev plant of control and computing machines, the Severodonetsk instrument_ making plant and the Tbilisi plant of control computing machines manufactured more that 18 thousand M-6000 complexes that were used to assemble more that 15 thousand control systems.
In 1976 V. Rezanov becoms the deputy chief designer of the system of small computers (in Russian - systema malykh elektronno-vychislitel'nykh mashin - SM EVM). They replaced M-6000, M-7000 machines.
During the period of 1978-1987 he served as chief designer of super productive geophysical computing complexes of aggregate computer system on the structures that can be reorganized (computer complex PS). This task of the Council of Ministers of the USSR aimed to secure research on natural resources of the Earth and its space probing. From 1981 till 1989 "Impulse" produced 150 complexes ASVT-PS-2000, which are still in use for the cosmic information processing centers, in special hydro acoustic systems, etc.
In 1984-1991 V.Rezanov served as a deputy chief designer of the nuclear power stations control systems, as a chief designer of the program and technical complexes for the very important objects. The first set of the super-reliable program-technical complexes was approved by the State Commission in 1990. The control complexes of such profile are still the main brand of the "Impulse" company nowadays...."
