A new partnership between US engineering firm Ansys (NASDAQ: ANSS) and Russian state scientific research institute GosNIIAS aims to improve the safety of Russian aircraft the principals said.
According to Ansys, there is no current process in place for compliance with worldwide aerospace standards in Russia, but its new agreement with GosNIIAS will help fill this void and make compliance with aerospace standards more attainable for this emerging market.
Integrated modular avionics is an emerging best practice led by airframers who seek an integrated avionics architecture that unifies historically disparate applications, such as flight controls and landing gear software, to better meet worldwide safety standards.
The team is developing an off-the-shelf technology called SCADE Solutions for IMA that streamlines the code generation of avionics system architectures and creates an automatic IMA configuration table. This software application provides significant time and financial savings during the overall product design process; it also enables product reliability.
Ansys said that the wider global aerospace industry will also reap the benefits of increased competition as Russia updates its safety compliance processes.
GosNIIAS – State Research Institute of Aviation Systems – is a scientific research center of the Russian aviation industry. Its main technologies include a full cycle of A/C avionics development: development of specifications, algorithms and software, mathematical and hardware-in-the-loop simulation and integration of A/C avionics complexes.
Specialists at GosNIIAS develop solutions for ATM systems and CNS/ATM avionics as well.
Since 2003 GosNIIAS has been a coordinator of the Russian Integrated Modular Avionics Program. Founded in 1946, GosNIIAS now employs about 2,000 professionals; 20% of them are doctors and candidates of science and more than 57% are specialists with higher education with experience in wide areas of studies.
Founded in 1970, Ansys employs over 2,500 professionals, many of them expert in engineering fields such as finite element analysis, computational fluid dynamics, electronics and electromagnetics, and design optimisation. Headquartered south of Pittsburgh, USA the firm has more than 70 strategic sales locations throughout the world with a network of channel partners in 40+ countries.
