R&D&I works and services:

– dynamics and energy efficiency of alternative fuel vehicles, electric and hybrid vehicles, development of dynamic models and modelling;

– development and – modernization of alternative energy vehicles;

– application of third-generation algae-derived biofuels in internal combustion engines;

– development of models for mobility in the transport system, development of models for the interaction between the elements of the vehicle/driver/environment system;

– development and deployment of innovative engineering systems in transport/logistics processes;

 – development of intelligent transport systems/new mobility (unmanned) and communication technologies;

– based on ongoing research, problems in the development, research, and deployment of training missiles shall be solved;

– theoretical and experimental studies and computer modeling of the aerodynamic performance, internal and external ballistics of training missiles;

– on the basis of the research carried out, military training missile equipment is being developed for the training of soldiers serving in short- and medium-range air defense systems, as well as for the conduct of tactical exercises in range conditions;

– the missile training equipment allows for to reduce of the economic costs of training and tactical exercises, and increases the efficiency and safety of the training process;

– research into the design of support vehicles, in the areas of improving vehicle safety, reducing environmental impact, and saving energy;

– development and analysis of numerical models and computer programs to optimize vehicle load-bearing structures and movement parameters, assess environmental pollution, and improve vehicle reliability and comfort;

– development and deployment of internationally marketable advanced technologies and products that are resource-efficient and reduce environmental pollution and climate change.
