International Week of Aerospace Technologies ended at MAI

26 November 2021

From 22 to 26 November, the VIII International week of aerospace technologies "Aerospace Science Week" was held at Moscow Aviation Institute. Over 1000 people from more than 15 countries of the world took part in the topical events. The participants from more than 200 organizations, including leading enterprises of the aerospace complex, research institutes, high-tech universities, participated in the event.

Heads of leading corporations in the aerospace and related industries, experts from relevant ministries, experts from business communities, as well as scientists and young engineers from Russia and other countries discussed the challenges and prospects in the field of high technologies.

The official start of the event was made by the final of the Russian intersectoral youth competition of scientific and technical works and projects "Youth and the future of aviation and cosmonautics". The competition has been held annually since 2009. Youth teams, young scientists, specialists, graduate students and students aged 18 to 35 from the aerospace and related high-tech industries are fighting for the victory in it and the prize fund of 1.5 million rubles. This year, more than 500 young authors from 36 regions of Russia took part in the competition.

Among the events of the week of aerospace technologies at MAI, which was carried out online, there was also the 20th International Conference "Aviation and Cosmonautics". More than 700 people from 10 countries took part in it. The event is held annually and allows to summarize the best practices of industrial and scientific organizations from different countries, strengthen partnership, including international relations, and determine further directions for the development of the aerospace complex in Russia.

As part of the conference, the international plenary session was held, it was moderated by the acting vice-rector for scientific work, Yury Ravikovich. The event was attended by foreign speakers from Germany, Romania, Croatia, India. Experts presented reports on the development of a hybrid electric propulsion system for regional aviation, modeling and measurement of stochastic electromagnetic fields, studies of kinematics and dynamics of industrial robots, detecting software vulnerabilities using mathematical modeling, creating an algorithm for recognizing and classifying various objects for an unmanned aerial vehicle.

The conference was continued by sectional sessions in nine areas: "Aviation systems", "Aviation, rocket engines and power plants", "Control systems, computer science and power engineering", "Information and telecommunication technologies of aviation, rocket and space systems", "Rocket and space systems", "Robotics, intelligent systems and aircraft weapons", "Mathematical methods in aerospace science and technology", "New materials and production technologies in aviation and rocket and space technology", "Economics and management of enterprises of the aerospace complex."

Also as part of "Aviation and Cosmonautics" this year three international conferences were held: "Space Systems", "Mathematical Modeling", "Composite Materials and Consructures". The International Conference "Unmanned Aerial Vehicles" is scheduled for 2022.
