Kamov is a Russian rotorcraft manufacturing company, founded by Nikolai Il'yich Kamov, who started building his first rotary-winged aircraft in 1929, together with N. K. Skrzhinskii. Up to the 1940s, they created many autogyros, including the TsAGI A-7-3, the only armed autogyro to see (limited) combat action.
The Kamov Design Bureau (design office prefix Ka) has more recently specialised in compact helicopters with coaxial rotors, suitable for naval service and high-speed operations.
Kamov merged with Mil and Rostvertol to form Oboronprom Corp. in 2006. The Kamov brand name was retained, though the new company dropped overlapping product lines.
