Moscow, Russia

Moscow Aviation Institute founded in 1930 is one of several major engineering higher education establishments in Moscow. Since its inception MAI has been spearheading advances in aerospace technology both within Russia and worldwide. The university laid emphasis on laboratory instruction in applied science and engineering, specific to demands of the aerospace industry. During World war II part of the university was evacuated to Almaty Kazakhstan, the university, staff and students continued to work on research and wartime production throughout the war.During the Post-War period, the university expanded and assimilated new technologies during the Jet age. Research conducted in the university contributed to heralding the space age.The university has to its merit more than 160000 specialists, 250 chief designers in the Aerospace Industry. 50 Academicians of the Russian Academy of science, 22 cosmonauts, 100 test pilots and 60 Olympic champions in different sports.Alumni of the institute form the backbone of many companies like Sukhoi, MIG, Ilyushin, Tupolev, Yakovlev, Beriev, Myasishchev, Mil Moscow Helicopter Plant, OAO S.P. Korolev Rocket and Space Corporation Energia, Lavochkin, Makeyev Rocket Design Bureau, Khrunichev State Research and Production Space Center, NPO Energomash, Almaz-Antey and others. Wikipedia.

Use of ultra-wideband (UWB) technology in various areas for remote sensing of the objects at short distances are considered. As an illustration UWB radar, in medicine and in psychophysiology, for remote measuring of patient's beating of the pulse and respiration is shown. The opportunity of UWB technology application in the other areas is described, including measuring of liquid levels, definition of a position of people in buildings, and position of people in woodlands. © 2010 IEEE.

We consider the design features of fan noise suppressors in application to air intakes and the bypass duct of a turbofan engine. A combined liner is developed that has increased acoustic efficiency in comparison to conventional honeycomb liner . We demonstrate the important role of the area of the sound-absorbing liner between fan Rotor and Stator ensuring significant noise reduction. © Pleiades Publishing, Ltd., 2012. Source
