Project summary

Scintists of many countries all over the world,USA,Japan, Russia and the European Community included, have been exploring for years automatic control systems to provide freight parachuting.

Through the explorations results showed that the problem has been sol-ved yet.

The Project is pointed at the development of automatic control system for gliding parachute to provide freight accurate landing (water landing). Project goals:

1. Development of algorithms to control the system parachute-wing-- freight and to guige it at the ground radio beacon (GRB).

2. Calculation of parachuting zone and freight parachuting.

3. Development of small-size antenna with a wide field of view and a high resolution capability.

4. Development of small-size receiver with low-power consumption and high hoise and false signals stability.

5. Development of low-cost and low-power consumption onboard computers.

Meanwhile the following goals can be reached under this project:

- to support fundamental and applied researches;

- to provide peaceful alternative opportunities to weapon scientists and engineers;

- to use KBP facilities in case of full-scale production of the equip-ment developed under this project;

- to extend scientific relations with foreign scientists.

The development under the proJect will give the following results:

1. Increase in freight landing (water landing) accuracy through the use of automatic control system.

2. The system cost reduction through the use of former military weapon assemblies and parts.

3. Improvement of the mathematical models and algorithms inteded for the system conrol under unstable environmental conditions.

4. Development of algorithms intended for the parachute automatic control system.

5. Development of low-power consumption and noise and false signal stable recievers.

6. Terminal guidance under unstable environmental conditions.

7. Low-power consumption onboard computer.

8. Small size antenna with wide field-of-view and high-resolution capability.
