The scientific school concept is not strictly defined. However, in the Leading scientific schools of Russia edition, Issue 1, - M.: Yanus-K, 1998, this term is interpreted as a relatively small scientific group, united not only organizationally and by particular subjects, but having a common system of vision, ideas, interests and traditions that remains unchanged and is further developed and passed on from one scientific generation to the next.

According to this definition the Council for Grants of the President of the Russian Federation for government support of young Russian scientists - doctors of engineering science - and the leading scientific schools of the Russian Federation selected two scientific schools, the founder and permanent leader of which is Evgeny A. Fedosov, First Deputy Director General of GosNIIAS, member of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

In the Engineering and technical sciences section the Control and data processing systems of modern and advanced aircraft scientific school is registered. The grant of the President of the Russian Federation - 96-15-98171.

The other leading scientific school of Russia: Methods of data processing in modern control systems. The grant of the President of the Russian Federation - NSh-1783.2003.8.

Within the framework of these rather broad scientific fields narrower areas of research and development can be highlighted, which have been established and developed at GosNIIAS and which make the core of its scientific and technical potential.

  • Methodological research and combat aircraft system (CAS) efficiency analysis, concept, type and fleet structure definition, external design, as well as new supporting discipline development (operations research, game theory, simulation, etc.). These include previously launched efforts that later evolved into specific projects aimed at combat aircraft system, and combat aviation as a whole, integrated development programs and trends, for which end-to-end simulation models of complete aircraft system life cycle were created.

  • Hardware-in-the-loop simulation and airborne system integration, which assume CAS combat mode study, methodological, experimental and practical efforts in CAS information, algorithmic and display support synthesis with subsequent flight testing. This development line can be qualified as research and technology support of CAS development throughout the complete development cycle.

  • Theoretical and experimental research applied to the development of guidance systems for all types and kinds of guided and unguided airborne weapons and antiaircraft missiles.
    These efforts have also evolved into scientific and technological support of aircraft weapon and antiaircraft missile development throughout the complete development cycle.

  • Theoretical and experimental study of CAS combat survivability assessment and enhancement techniques.
    These efforts are closely related to aircraft weapon lethality and warhead/fuze performance assessment and efficiency enhancement techniques.

  • The area of research, experimental and practical work in the field of aircraft weapon dynamic and thermal loads, reliability, compatibility and safety during maintenance and operational service.
    The efforts involve the analysis of the complete spectrum of factors affecting the weapon: dynamic (vibration, shock vibration) loads, aerodynamic heating of airborne weapon and missile launchers/gun mounts, electromagnetic radiation of both onboard systems and other emitting devices, transport loads. The research allows to assess weapons reliability and explosion safety.

  • Methodology of research, experimental and computing capability building.
    The Institute possesses the unique experimental facilities including: multi-axis high-precision dynamic simulators, multifunction assemblies and radar/optical target simulators, large-size anechoic chambers for radar sighting and ECM system testing, numerous simulators providing complex tactical, dense electromagnetic and high clutter environment simulation, powerful computer centers, allowing to integrate basic avionics subsystems (radar/optoelectronic sighting systems, cockpit instrumentation, weapon control system, onboard cabling and information networks, etc.).

  • Airborne computer system architecture.
    The Institute has developed:

    • airborne digital computer system analysis and synthesis methods;

    • high-speed airborne computer system concepts providing the correct real-time algorithm implementation for a given class of functional units;

    • methodological basis for airborne digital computer integration based on highly intelligent data exchange channels;

    • methodology for functional software and software engineering technology process support tools development.

  • Data processing systems. Optoelectronic systems. Information control systems.
    The Institute carries out intensive research in the field of multimedia and multispectral computer information processing techniques applied to the tasks of target detection and identification in complex background clutter, remote sensing data processing, generation and high-speed visualization of 3D terrain models and 3D models of objects of various complexity. New information technologies have been developed for computer vision and virtual reality systems, simulator and GIS (geographic information system) design. Large various-purpose electronic document management systems based on new machine-readable information identification technologies have been developed.
