JSC Scientific and Research Institute of Measurement Instrumentation – Novosibirsk Plant named after Komintern (abbreviated as NPO NIIIP-NZiK, Russian: Научно-исследовательский институт измерительных приборов — Новосибирский завод имени Коминтерна) – Soviet/Russian large scientific and production joint venture (NPO) working in the field of radiotechnics. Both NIIIP and NZiK located in Novosibirsk.

Founded in St. Petersburg in 1911 on the base of Kronstadt radiotelegraph workshop, laboratory and a warehouse named Radiotelegraph Depot of Sea Office (Ministry de la Marine impériale de Russie). In 1922 renamed Radiotelegraph Plant named after Komintern. In 1941 evacuated to Novosibirsk by the decision of State Defense Committeeю

Design Bureau of Komintern Plant (OKB) separated as NII-208 by the decision no. 3516-1465 of Central Committee and the USSR Council of Ministers on August 15, 1949.

By the Decree of USSR Ministry of Radioindustry (MRP) no. 160 on March 24, 1966 NII-208 renamed NIIIP. Known as FGUP NIIIP since 1999.

Part of Almaz-Antey as reconnaissance and informational unit.
