To meet new challenges in aviation TsAGI is building new technological partnerships to develop 21st Century solutions.

Airbus, Boeing, Dassault, Lockheed Martin and Sikorsky all have standing cooperative agreements with TsAGI. For the European Airbus Industry’s announced A-380, the world biggest airliner, TsAGI conducted computer modeling and wind tunnel tests to study vortex flows about different configurations of wing design. The massive turbojet, planned with a 2-floor fuselage, is scheduled for takeoff in 200f with advance orders from major airlines worldwide. 
In october 2000 Brasilian aircraft manufacturer Embraer, the fourth largest in the world, announced a comprehensive agreement, as it fine-tunes its new ERJ 170/190 regional jet (inner family).

TsAGI invites you also to investigate our capacities and to contact us with questions or proposals. Our proven expertise combines analysis with experiment in testing facility world-known for our reliability and innovation.

Whatever your challenges — Testing and Research; Design and Development; or Concept and Creation — TsAGI stands ready to help in developing aviation solutions. Let us hear from you.

Testing and Research

  • tests of propellers and propfans;
  • static strength and fatigue tests for airframes under varying conditions of heat and pressure;
  • wind tunnel tests combined with complex physical analysis;
  • analytical and experimental research on structural dynamics and aeroelasticity phenomena.

Design and Development

  • aerodynamic configurations, control systems and engine design;
  • design and fabrication of test models;
  • advanced equipment development to test aerodynamics, aerothermodynamics, flight dynamics and material strength;
  • customized software development and state of the art strength analysis.

Concept and Creation

  • concepts for flight control systems;
  • concepts of definition and choice of parameters for aircrafts and engines;
  • creation of modern digital airborne computer-based control systems;
  • structural concept studies in compliance with constants of aeroelasticity or static/fatigue strength;
