welcome to technology update and welcome to mocks the world famous moscow air show where the plane with premier aerospace pioneers have come to show off their latest high flying hard to supply water too deep for the best to divest to soar above the rest and the legendary to coast the airfield in suburban moscow the very place named after an early russian aerodynamics genius this year was the tenth time around for this festival flight since it started making ninety three with over eight hundred companies representing thirty countries to be strong for the year shows more than half a million guests will surely be employed action movie business was also on the bill racking up some ten billion dollars in deals even with all the international big shots bringing their wares russia's open secret made the biggest bush this to hoist part forty fifty finally broke out from behind the closed doors covering its development flying for crowds in cameras for the first time it's

a fifth generation stealth fighter jet propelled russia's air force deep into the twenty first century each maxie's new headlines and highlights like this to hoist superjet in two thousand and nine to two thousand and eleven is already a new decade with new projects like a whole batch of edition cargo and passenger jets in russia's civil aviation pipeline. undoubtedly the most notable newcomer is here could see and see twenty one with a full scale cabin model on display for the very first time its final boarding call for a glimpse to the future of this short and mid brain for commercial life. dissing the lyle narrow body didn't see twenty one is actually an emerging family two hundred three hundred and four hundred modifications forthcoming will be capable of transporting anywhere from one fifty to over two hundred passengers per flight at a range starting at thirty five hundred to five thousand kilometers potentially up to seven thousand in the future cabin design very easily transformable to increase

comfort working cassidy told order to make these planes into internationally competitive aircraft rests on the shoulders of the. corp on the strength of over seventy five years at its factory in the siberian city of your goods the company hopes not only to bring in reinforcements are they teaching to mistake to pull f one five four fleets but also challenge the dominance of giants boeing and airbus in this market segment thankfully they're not starting from square one with a steady flow of skilled scientists and engineers from russian aerospace schools making the project all the more promising. we're designing this plane with a wide range of international partners inside russia this means working with research institutes for aero hundred on a mix aviation which aerials and aviation technologies the state is a tool of aviation systems is helping design the airplanes digital components for. the n.c. twenty one will be offered with engine options either present with the speed of you fourteen hundred g. or the specially designed new p.t.

for pete a project of russia's obviously get it now tusk is to provide the advantage of cheaper engines without compromising performance parameters and available resources most importantly in terms of the lifecycle cost as compared to our competitors abroad it's important to point out that we're regarding this engine as the platform on the basis of which engines will be designed for the home line of these airplanes to p.t. fourteen is projected to meet and exceed international standards on fuel consumption emissions and noise pollution new engines are a start but they aren't the only innovative rethink for the future could get. people are leaving aerodynamics is that your psyche made a crucial contribution to this project their experts produced a new concept for wing design it has little to get a new profile for supercritical airfoils all of their work helps greatly improve the plane's aerodynamics in addition to this super critical design highway near

oversized luggage bins spacious seats in both business and economy and of course a screen it every seat. as passengers were most concerned with smooth sailing to our destination enhanced by every available many of the carriers are all about the bottom line all three mc twenty one models allow for everything from spacious mixed class layouts to the tighter tour operator scheme and makes the most out of every last row in any combination airplanes will remain wider than traditional single aisle jets just enough extra aisle space to eliminate the annoying service cards squeezed by a dream scenario as time. from the flight deck pilots also enjoy every twenty first century aviation was multi-functional output panels to integrate delayed us in digitize flight controls. those pilot wings thing runway ready obviously this model's not exactly but you could explain it for twenty one by twenty four teeth so

there should be more progress. ported the next three months this year's most triumphal entry went to the brand new long awaited seventy seven dreamliner from boeing which has just wrapped up test flights for u.s. federal aviation administration certification at its home base outside seattle washington with one of the nine trial seventy seven's freed up for a short getaway march visitors got a glimpse at the latest widebody boeing billed as the company's most advanced most fuel efficient airplane ever and with russian flight should bear lie said to take twenty two of the new dreamliner. crews from faraway seattle gave future customers a good preview of what the modern machine is capable of. it was a very enjoyable read the easy flight we used a lot of the automation on the airplane to make the pilot work load always a little as possible. so the course was used all throughout the regimes just
9:39 am
monitoring those systems the airplane is equipped with some continual see an automatic solution fourteen so forth so we took advantage of all those things we didn't have to make the standing position reports on the h.f. radio airplanes system did those reports for us so very very enjoyable flight and russian was hardly a brand of choice for the dreamliner visit as moscow is home to boeing's biggest engineering office outside the u.s. the eleven hour time difference from the west coast headquarters to russia's capital means the company has around the clock engineering operations within aerospace tradition they grew up alongside and even at times ahead of the american and european schools russia provides a rich pool of specialists that was a big deal in developing the dreamliner the think about the russian contribution to this airplane i think that i would say that materials and.
9:40 am
dual main areas. partnership in russia made it possible for me probably to say that this airplane wouldn't happen without our russian partners in terms of design russian engineers complete claim to the nose cone structure that leads to seventy seven skyward they pitched in on the electrical systems or conditioning they designed a crucial building huge of the wing that provides lift the pylon for mounting the engines and even added some flair to the passenger friendly interior. when it comes to simply airplanes there are parts and then there are parts and it's largely thanks to unique new components that boeing is promising a twenty percent bump in efficiency they could help the dreamliner is operators cut two point four million dollars per plane per year this efficiency will be impossible without key parts like this body cord connecting the we need to fuselage made entirely of russian composite materials this source of these all important

materials this would all boeing a joint venture between the aircraft company envious m.p.o. will be smuggled producer of fully a quarter of the world's titanium is it blowing in russia stood last region the unique titanium alloys are turned into the backbone of the seventy seven breakthroughs in material science achieved here for a major reason the world can expect lighter stronger more eco friendly airplanes in the coming years. we are no design in seven eight seven there's nine that's and that's going to take a shot of this airplane which will be the leader will carry more passengers up to eight hundred eighty passengers so the longer distance that airplane. easer and two in service in two years and where there would be the design of this airplane would also paid a lot of attention to the other deal interesting project here in moscow cold seven four seven there eight that brought it all goes a lot in parallel with the an eight seven in suffocation in flight tests and we'll
9:42 am
continue to work on the improvements of this airplanes and ensure that there would . interesting projects including the small airplanes that the russian he has will continue the boy. for now all eyes are on the upcoming commercial bowl out of the first three miners due within the next month for delivery to japanese carrier a.n.e. and that's just the beginning boeing racked up over eight hundred sales for their new standard bearing jet before it even made its first test flight so expect them soon in an airport near you not all the new music box or commercial jetliners and for many the far flung sparsely populated russian regions bigger isn't necessarily better it's with an eye on regional small craft aviation it has been developed and it's already one attention it mocks far greater than its size the assembly lines its summer as progress helped put the first soviet cost not seen orbit and propelled generations of the air and space craft skyward for more than a half century of its history so it's an auspicious starting place for what will be
9:43 am
the first post soviet small aircraft first serial production designed by engineers at moscow based technology it's intended to combine modern performance and avionics with the brotherhood all condition reliability needed to serve russia's regions. to the no hell the design of this can be seen in several solutions employed on this airplane it is excellent they are done and it properties including the a full insuring great performance even at low velocity says its landing gear is very good and allows you to land the aircraft on some stand of their fields craft withstand strong winds very well with the symmetric engines also for very good performance which is particularly important for multi engine aircraft and also is a significant advantage in training a craft. before ricin flew in to take its place in the air show in moscow we had a chance to climb aboard for one of its certification testing flights in the western russian city of somalia.

conditions of the former military airport are luxury as compared to the remote airstrips the research is built to access but it's a good base for monitoring and servicing the newborn aircraft while it gets its wings in the field it can take off and land from dirt lift off with one of its two engines disabled and provide crew and passengers with emergency oxygen if flight conditions demand a climb above thirty six hundred meters experience test pilot going off whips the light airplane around curves with performance parameters to establish these trial flights are no relaxing total jumps but once it makes muster with russian aviation regulators the first batch are due for delivery to a flight school in lenin's hometown would be on us. on the bill if it really stands out for its modern flight control equipment which in practice and i was eric out of the students who have mastered this machine to transition easily to modern

well as economic advantages resulting from the improved fuel consumption rates and hans engine power performance that used to turn a proxy five hundred this is just a production gear attached to the propeller of the combustor the compressor and if the rear the accessory gearbox what's called the gas generator comprises both combusting compressor and essentially the heart of the engine. the gas generator is the biggest piece yet produced in seleucid project for that is the choke turboprop engine along with it they develop a custom made experimental stand to confirm their ground for the appointed performance figures. since it is a choke is already flying on a check made him six zero one f. and might see a replacement from general electric t.v. five hundred s. meed specs to set it apart. here we join send you to engineers to fire up the gas generator for another round of tests draw power is important but not the only
9:48 am
objective given recent shocks to me. muted stature a lighter less powerful engine it still has that thrust to provide a desired cruising speed in takeoff distance while guzzling less gas is a more profitable formula. so far seventeen seems to be the engines lucky number projected to be seventeen kilograms lighter than the walter model and you seventeen percent less fuel though it's still just figures the t.v. five hundred s. is shaping up to be a highly competitive engine for small turbo prop planes so few technical solutions have laid a good foundation for the development of fusion engine right now we're talking about the gas generator but we're hopeful to complete development of a new engine by twenty twelve when it was from the outset we've been developing our engines to complete the older from techno obviously there is that shock aircraft project it could be used in patrol flights for example aerial monitoring of border areas for the emergency is ministries risky fleet full medical aid operations and

controllers with improved wind shear warning. the atmosphere around their. his own stable in some cases and airports have been built in places with complicated landscapes take for example hong kong where roughly one in every two hundred fifty landings and takeoffs is performed under hazardous wind shear conditions airports of defeater will be fully covered with advanced sensor equipment to map out when other hazards information that will help relieve congestion increase throughput a goldmine for the industry old school when sure detection systems will lie on an anemometer swore simple. delight when profiler three hundred developed by russian firms laser systems and aircraft engineering concern is ground based shooting laser beams skyward and then determining wind direction and speed by detecting the frequency of the backscatter light at least in principle one liner when profiler should give more detailed information over shorter distances crucial around airports and low flying aircraft and several anemometer spaced out around the same
9:51 am
territory. the task is actually quite simple our device here will now measure the wind profile at an altitude of three hundred meters in the vicinity you can see a tower with special platforms where wind gauges like the one i'm holding are installed. you know most of those our goal is to prove that the measurements of our lead are wind profile or correspond to the measurements obtained through the sensors installed on this high meteorological tower. i stood. up against a whole host of spinning anemometers just one skinny module on the l.w.p. three hundred is left of pain an equally accurate picture of the window over this kaluga region test site mistakes are high since the losing system may soon be consigned to the dustbin of aviation history the physical benefits of replacing the
9:52 am
towers in the already cluttered space around modern airports is obvious says. missing the ground the slider systems would also be less of a challenge but if the numbers don't back up the win profiling benefits then the towers are better left in place fortunately the new technology for fourth perfectly and may soon be ready for full time action. conditions but on impulse and the test have been completed successfully and most importantly in the near future we hope to get certified by the interstate aviation committee the organization that deals with equipment certification once you've got that our task is to provide this equipment for russia's first wind shear detection system and install it in logical stalk which will be hosting next year's major international summit was an issue is that we should ensure maximum flight safety for the high ranking guests and naturally old commercial passengers flying to and from bloody vostok every day not sedition two thousand and eleven features more than ten american military aircraft something unthinkable in moscow when this airshow first opened nearly two decades ago improve

relations i think it least in for it to a multinational treaty and high flying surveillance technology this story starts in the darkest days of the cold war when an arms race and mutual suspicion held the world both east and west in a state of great tension moved by the constant threat of all out war in nuclear destruction we're trying to do any of this great fear of surprise attack so now on our allies who are still proposing inspection of all what the american not of the rio grande. and all your. anything for the famous but. russia and or satellite. that was eisenhower's mean message at the geneva summit of nine hundred fifty five but soviet and western leaders failed to agree on a mutual inspection regime and the idea was put on ice for a generation it was reborn in one thousand nine hundred two however as the treaty
9:54 am
on the open skies the united states and russia were eventually joined by thirty two other. signatories to date they've completed more than eight hundred flyovers and generated both valuable data in a crisis moved in mutual relations then took on thirty in the total of one five four have carried out most of russia's flights today but like their counterparts in other countries the plane thirty g.'s of haitians aeronautical electronics a wooden company vega is responsible for bringing russia's open skies surveillance capacity into the twenty first century camera and sensor equipment allowed within the treaty has to be fine tuned like maximum ground resolution for photo and video material strictly limited thirty. after years of work. ready to unveil their brainchild to first specifically build a lift to fourteen a west would be the most advanced aircraft in the history of the open skies tree. this beautiful aircraft is not simply the first plane in russia or any other treaty
9:55 am
on open skies countries that incorporates all types of equipment allowed for use on board it's also automated to are not totally high level the equipment is controlled electronically all the data displayed on the screen where they operate the monitors know. you are standing by the forward equipment by the aircraft electronic equipment is installed and while the tail compartment contains airborne ray does and the infrared camera the best place on board the plane is reserved for photo and video cameras because we expect them to give us the main bulk of information one fixed photo camera shoots directly below the aircraft that one another one takes panorama peaches plus two side view cameras and three video cameras all this photo and video surveillance equipment and eye balls us to cover a very large stretch of land and gives us a detail picture of the landscape the aircraft causes of a photo a camera has a separate all tickle port protected by sliding doors that are designed to prevent
9:56 am
it from sticking to the lenses during takeoff and landing generally speaking the equipment is very reliable and fully automated. with the cameras and sensors installed in the planes underbelly crewmen and women on the planes operated them right from that camera but the trouble with two fourteen zero s is moved to remote control automation lets the mission commander the individual camera operators and a host country observers all sit comfortably in the passenger cabin and this is what of course we're entering the compartment where the equipment operators sit. this is the key part of the plane because this is where we receive the desired information. you'll notice that there are two additional seats located behind each operator is eight twenty seven. representatives of the country the plane is flying a little to go but this is a necessary provision i'm just exercising constant control over the treaty flights in for a custom here is the equipment that operate the infrared camera on the radio national
9:57 am
some mention that this is the first time in the history of the treaty on open skies that surveillance radar has been installed on board an aircraft so much of the truth of two fourteen zero zero s. is already flight worthy and ready to fill all its treaty obligations a second plane is on the assembly lines set to join the formal flights as soon as next year international observers who came to moscow agreed the plane is a big step to making sure the sky stayed open in the future it's the end of an air show here in moscow in the end of an era for technology of thing i'm off to catch one of these jets back to the states but the rest of the take up team will be back next month with more from an ever changing world of russian animation two men enjoying the right.
