MAKS-2021: MAI took part in the round table on digital technologies in aviation
On the 20th
of July MAKS-2021, the XV International Aviation and Space Salon, started its work in Zhukovsky. For Moscow Aviation Institute this is one of the most significant events where the university demonstrates the results of its research activities, talks about the prospects for education development and strengthens cooperation with leading enterprises in the aerospace industry. The University participates in exhibition and business programs, conducts various activities for visitors of all ages who are interested in modern technologies.
On the first day of MAKS-2021, the round table "Domestic digital technologies in aviation and the aviation industry" was held, it was organized by the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, the Department of Digital Technologies and JSC “Aviasalon”. Among the experts of the round table there was Dmitry Strelets, Candidate of Technical Sciences, Deputy Director for Design of the Sukhoi Design Bureau, Head of NIO-101 MAI. He spoke about the complex of solutions for modeling and weight characteristics control for a high-tech industrial product being developed at the Moscow Aviation Institute together with the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation. The new development will help to avoid disruption of the project deadline caused by weight design errors, to improve fuel efficiency, and also to reduce the labor intensity of weight design.
The software complex allows to carry out weight design processes continuous monitoring, implement measures of weight reduction timely, analyze the weight perfection of a product designed, as well as perform automation of weight design processes.
Non-classical three-tier architecture with monolithic server application (client, server, database) was chosen to implement the software package, it allows the software to be scaled by releasing new modules. The efficiency of the results of weight calculations by means of the complex allows transmitting relevant information at all stages of the aircraft life cycle to various divisions of the design bureau: aerodynamics, static and dynamic strength, fuel system, test flight base, etc.
The complex also allows to combine various calculation modules that solve separate, but interrelated problems of weight design, into a single information space and link them with relevant information sources.
Apart from the weight design software package for the high-tech industrial products, the main topics discussed at the round table were the issues of a software for optimal aerodynamic design and analysis of unmanned aerial vehicles; the use of artificial intelligence and augmented reality technologies in the tasks of improving the quality of production and after-sales service of helicopter equipment; emergency recorder for small aircraft; unification and standardization of IT service management processes and others.
