TsAGI Outlined New Cooperation Vectors at Farnborough Airshow
2 August 2016
One of the action points in the business program of the Central AeroHydrodynamic Institute named after professor N.E. Zhukovsky (part of the National Research Center ‘Institute named after N.E.Zhukovsky‘) in Farnborough was the negotiation with Mexican colleagues. For TsAGI this meant extension of its international cooperation geography.
The Institute held meetings with the delegations of ProMexico export promotion agency and FEMIA aerospace federation (Federación Mexicana De La Industria Aerospecial). Active communication at the airshow allowed determining a circle of potential Institute partners among Mexican research establishments for cooperation in the sphere of aeronautic science.
The Institute also held negotiations with representatives of USA aerospace industry. The meeting with MTS Systems management was focused on development of an aircraft engine standard simulator. The agreement to commence the project preparation was the actual result of the discussion.
A workshop jointly held by TsAGI and NASA was the topic of conversation with colleagues from the American research center. The participants approved flight safety as the subject of the event, appointed coordinators from both sides and made other practical arrangements.
The International Farnborough Airshow began in 1948. This world’s largest airshow is organized in the United Kingdom biennially.
