During two days (November 25 and 26) the breakout sessions of the conference “Aviation and Cosmonautics” were conducted. The representatives of science and industry shared their experience and identified various ways to solve current problems in the areas:
- aviation systems;
- aviation and rocket engines and power installations;
- control systems, informatics and power engineering;
- information and telecommunication technologies of aviation, rocket and space systems;
- rocket and space systems;
- robotics, intelligent systems and aircraft armament;
- mathematical methods in aerospace science and technology;
- new materials and production technologies in the field of aviation, rocket and space technique;
- economics and management at enterprises of aerospace complexes.
The international conference "Aviation and Cosmonautics", traditionally held by MAI annually in November, attracts more than 800 participants. This year the program of the event for the first time consisted of three online conferences on topics, correlating with the strategic directions of development of Moscow Aviation Institute: "Composite Materials and Constructions", "Mathematical Modelling" and" Unmanned Aerial Vehicles".
The international conference “Aviation and Cosmonautics” materials are published in Russian and English. Therefore, the conference materials are available not only to the participants, but also to partners in Russia and abroad, which allows to expand the geography of the event from year to year, determine the "growth points" of industry and high-tech technologies, and find new ways and tools for system interaction between the representatives of the aerospace industry.
