tfflma?siabmwnnm^:'H'azl main categories of work done by the academy.

the first area includes studies on board spaceships, including study of si0proces5es in weightlessness. crystal growth, botany, reactions of biological organisms and cells, and development of future flying machines and different kinds of engines at the institute for

technical mechanics. the second category includes astronomical observatories on the ground and on board spacecraft (veca and phcbcs

n-line data processing with super minicomputers, remote prosing from space, ice and snow research with the the institute of

radio and physical electronics and other hymophysics AND geography institutes, study of different types of geological composition in the

ukraine, and study of the active zones of the crimean and carpean

regions. the third area of work covers the study of near-earth

space. the hagnetosphere, ozone changes, and space plasma parameters.

these topics are being researched by the institute of radioastronohy

AND kiev university.

OF the academy's budgetby the soviet government. and that thendustry and contracts with design bureaus. MmmmvXmmmWF7^

ukrainian academy of sciences has the authority to uni laterally engage in cooperative research with the united states,

the areas of MOST INTEREST for cooperation are math, theoretical physics, and. research in the area of unidentified flying objects. saying that the academy has several organizations that follow the subject and that some scientists think iterious problem.WS re is no specific STUDY of systems engineering in the academy, but that the subject is incorporated in many institutes such as metal sciences, computerization and information sciences, and math. the ukrainian academy of sciences is NO longer participating in the soviet mars program, since this hastate project.

antonov aircraft design bureau designs commercialaircraft, AND0 employees. thet this facility, was USED as the transport for theshuttle. engineers at the facility are investigating methods

to reduce the weight OF the aircraft, such as new composites. the bureau uses personal computers and mainframes for optimization and

testing, estimation of aerodynamics, flight instrument tests, and

data processing.

A. the kiev aircraft factory operates in close cooperation WITH the antonov design bureau. the, factory built theassenger plane, which carriesercent OF AEROflot's passengers.

THE SERVICE LIFE OF THE PLANE0 FLIGHTS. PRODUCTIONEEEGAN5 WHENRODUCTION WAS STOPPED. IRCRAFT HAD BEEN PRODUCED AS OF BOTH PLANES ARE EXPORTED TO AFRICA, ASIA, PERU AND EASTERN EUROPE. THE FACTORY ALSO MAKES SEVERAL MODELS OF THEIRCRAFT, USED FOR FISH RECONNAISSANCE, FIRE FIGHTING, AND OVERHEAD PHOTOGRAPHY. THEIRCRAFT HAS BEEN PRODUCED4 IN SERIAL PRODUCTION, AND CAN BE EASILY CONVERTED FROM CIVILIAN TO MILITARY USE. THE CURRENT PRODUCTION RATE IS THREE PES YEAR.

5. THE KIEV AIRCRAFT FACTORY NOV PRODUCES CONSUMER GOODS SUCH AS WASHING MACHINES, BABY CARRIAGES, MEDICAL PRODUCTS, DENTIST CHAIRS, BAROMETRIC CHAMBERS, AND SPECIAL MACHINERY FOR CANNING FOOD. THE FACTORY IS RETRAINING ITS PERSONNEL TO PRODUCE THESE CONSUMER GOODS, AND IT IS USING COMPUTERS, INCLUDING COMPUTER AIDED DESIGN AND MANUFACTURING, TO SOLVE DESIGN AND FABRICATION PROBLEMS. THE PRODUCTION RATE OF VARIOUS ITEMS IS DETERMINED BY THE PLANNING DEPARTMENT, AND THE PRODUCTION DEPARTMENT PERFORMS QUALITY CONTROL ON THE .INPUTS AND ALL FINISHED PRODUCTS. THE FACTORY IS USING SOME ROBOTICS TECHNOLOGY FOR ASSEMBLY, BUT0 EMPLOYEES.
