Dmitry Rogozin visited VIAM
On February 5, 2013 Dmitry O. Rogozin, the deputy Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation, the Chairman of Military–Iindustrial Commission at the Government of the Russian Federation visited the «All-Russian Scientific-Research Institute of Aviation Materials».
In particular, in the course of the meeting he visited the chemical express-analysis research center, experimental – technological complex of metallic composite materials and testing complex of high-temperature tests after the name of professor N.M. Sklyarov.
Also Dmitry Rogozin familiarized himself with the following scientific-production complexes: single-crystal casting of blades of gas turbine engines; heat-resistant powder solders; ceramic composite materials and anti-oxidative coatings; ion-plasma coatings; polymer composite materials; high-temperature heat shield.
The work of low-capacity production of super heat-resistant alloys and an isothermal forging of gas turbine engine discs was shown to him.
Academician of RAS, Professor Evgeny N. Kablov, General Director of the institute, informed about new developments of VIAM, perspectives of the institute and strategic directions of materials development and technologies of their reprocessing for the period till 2030.
Employees of the institute demonstrated to Dmitry Rogozin the work of unique equipment, the newest developments and technologies of VIAM, told about their scientific activity.
Answering questions of journalists, Dmitry Rogozin noted that «nowadays we should properly organize our industry, to get rid of unnecessary duplication, chaos and separation, to pass to a new technical policy, and also to activate science and production integration». «A big role in this matter belongs to a work on new strategic materials», - he emphasized. «It is necessary to proceed along the course of creation of a powerful corporation which could integrate a huge potential in the field of creation of a new trend of advanced materials which will be applied in the most different spheres and areas», - the Deputy Prime Minister declared. In his opinion the leading role in process of creation of new materials and identification of new industrial image of Russia belongs to VIAM.
In turn Evgeny Kablov noted that «for us this visit is a sign event which once again confirms that the Military-Industrial Commission and its chairman personally pay much attention to development of new materials». «It is especially important for youth, there are quite many of young people in VIAM where an average age of employees makes 44 years. It is an indication of their confidence and understanding that their work is necessary for the country», - he emphasized.
As Evgeny Kablov pointed out «in many respects thanks to this fact we have an opportunity to carry out scientific and production activity in the interests of our defense industry sector and other industries of economy». «At the same time the basic principles of development of new generation materials are fundamental and fundamentally-oriented researches for creation of leading scientific and technical groundwork together with the Russian Academy of Sciences, "green" technologies at creation of materials and integrated protection systems, implementation of complete life cycle with the use of IT technologies, and also a unity of materials, technologies and structures», - he reported.
«Принципиально новая позиция, которая неоднократно поддержана руководством страны – это единство материала, технологии и конструкции, что в полной мере позволяет реализовать те возможности, которые может дать материал, в том числе и для обеспечения безопасности наших граждан», - подчеркнул Генеральный директор института.
«Essentially new position which was repeatedly supported by the country leaders is the unity of material, technologies and structures that fully allows to implement those opportunities which material can give including security ensuring for our citizens», - General Director of the institute emphasized.
Dmitry Rogozin declared that «many development works of VIAM presumably become subjects of special attention of recently created the Russian Fund of perspective researches and become a pride of the country».
