TsAGI advanced projects to be demonstrated at MAKS-2017
10 July 2017
The Zhukovsky Central AeroHydrodynamic Institute (TsAGI, a member of the National Research Center “Institute named after N.E.Zhukovsky”) will take part in the XII International Aviation and Space Salon MAKS-2017, which will be held July
The Salon visitors will be able to have a closer look at the model of a high-speed civilian aircraft, supersonic business aircraft/passenger aircraft (SBA/SPA), and the model of the heavy integrated circuit transport aircraft (HTA-IC).
A high-speed civil aircraft model, created by the Institute’s specialists within the framework of the international project HEXAFLY-INT will give guests an idea of the advanced development in the field of future passenger aviation. This is a prototype aircraft of non-standard configuration, which is expected to accomplish intercontinental flights much faster than modern airliners, with top speeds up to 8000 km/h. It is expected to fly on hydrogen.
SBA/SPA will make a new generation supersonic aircraft presentation. Specialists expect the aircraft to have a cruising speed of at least 1900 km/h for up to 8600 km during transatlantic flights. The interior of the aircraft will be convertible from 80 to 20 VIP seats. The aircraft will meet all prospective requirements from noise to emission.
In addition to advances in passenger aviation, MAKS-2017 visitors can become acquainted with TsAGI’s promising project in the field of cargo transport. The HTA-IC, which model can be seen among the exhibits, is unique to the Institute, designed for transportation of various loads of up to 500 tons at a speed of 500 km/h over distances of more than 6000 km. HTA-IC will be based at A-class airfields and cruise at low altitude. The aircraft will provide an advantage in speed of delivery compared with sea container traffic, with lower transportation costs than traditional aviation transport. Liquefied natural gas will be the fuel for this aircraft.
“Participation in MAKS-2017 is an opportunity for Russian aerospace companies to show their advanced projects, to show the competitiveness of Russian Science and industry, and to discuss potential joint projects with Russian and foreign partners.” explained TsAGI Director General Sergey Chernyshev.
“TsAGI actively establishes connections and compare positions with world leaders in the field of aviation research therefore, airshows, such as MAKS, are essential platforms for communication.
“Within the framework of the International Aviation and Space Salon MAKS-2017, we have planned a busy business program, meetings with colleagues from Russia, Europe, Asia and Africa. It is important for us to enhance the image of TsAGI as the centre of globally significant aviation science,” Chernyshev concluded.
The Zhukovsky Central AeroHydrodynamic Institute (TsAGI, a member of the National Research Center “Institute named after N.E.Zhukovsky”), was founded in Moscow in 1918. Today, TsAGI is the largest State scientific center of Russia’s aviation and aerospace industry where basic and applied problems in the field of aero- and hydrodynamics, aero acoustics, flight dynamics and aircraft structure integrity are being successfully solved. The institute has a unique experimental base, meeting the highest international standards. TsAGI performs basic research of all aircraft developed in Russian design offices and gives the final conclusion of capability and safety through the maiden flight. TsAGI participates in the development of Sate Aviation Technology programs, helps develop airworthiness standards and works on state regulatory documents.The National Research Center “Institute named after N.E. Zhukovsky” (NRC) is vested with authority from the Russian Federation to oversee science and technology in the aircraft industry, and to shape state research and technology policy. The NRC is engaged in organizing and providing research activity, and work out innovative technologies in priority areas of aerotechnics development (aviation technology), The key goal is to adopt in a very short time scientific research results and to use scientific achievements for the development of the economy of Russia. In addition to TsAGI, the NRC consists of the Central Institute of Aviation Motor named after P.I.Baranov, the State Scientific Research Institute of Aviation Systems, the Siberian Aeronautical Research Institute named after S. A. Chaplygin and the State Governmental Scientific-Testing Area of Aircraft Systems (GkNIPAS)
