What does OKB mean?

OKB
OKB is a transliteration of the Russian initials of "Опытное конструкторское бюро" - Opytnoye Konstruktorskoye Buro, meaning Experimental Design Bureau. During the Soviet era, OKBs were closed institutions working on design and prototyping of advanced technology, usually for military applications. A bureau was officially identified by a number, and often semi-officially by the name of the lead designer - for example, OKB-51 was led by Pavel Sukhoi, and eventually became known as OKB of Sukhoi. Successful and famous bureaus often retained this name even after the death or replacement of their designer. These relatively small state-run organisations were not intended for mass production of aircraft, rockets, or other vehicles or equipment they designed. However they usually had the facilities and resources to construct prototypes. Designs accepted by the state were then assigned to factories for mass production. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, many OKBs became Scientific Production Organizations abbreviated to NPO.
