At MFD 2016, Technodinamika displayed components of the latest fire protection system, engine ignition and engine control units for aircraft applications. The Technodinamika Holding, part of the Rostec State Corporation, took part in the Second International Engine Industry Forum (MFD 2016) held in Moscow on April19-21. “Today we are not just a manufacturer of aircraft accessories and components but we also a supplier of highly innovative systems that are competitive on the Russian and global markets,” said Technodinamika CEO Maxim Kuzyuk. At the Forum, the holding’s Ufa Research and Production Enterprise (UNPP Molniya), demonstrated its competences in digital electronic control systems for power plants used in the Yak-42, AN-32, AN-34, AN-124, AN-224; MiG-29K and MiG-29M aircraft. The reliability of its systems has been proven, for example, by the fact that the time to premature removals of electronic engine controls (EECs) installed in the Tu-154M, Il-62, and Il-76 aircraft has hit a record high of 1.5 million hours, based on long life operating data. At present, UNPP Molniya is drastically upgrading electronic engine control systems employed in Russian-made aircraft and helicopters. In addition, Technodinamika presented fuel ignition units for main and auxiliary gas turbine engines used in the Tu-334, Be-200, AN-148, AN-158, Yak-130, Su-35, Mi-28MT aircraft and Ka-60, Ka-62, Mi-171 helicopters. They feature reduced weight while their service life is three to four times longer in comparison with previous generation units through the use of new engineering solutions, materials and components. UNPP Molniya also showcased sensors for the latest fire protection system (FPS), which has passed the phase of preliminary tests not long ago. Today, the FPS outperforms all its counterparts available in the Russian market. A 15% reduction in the system weight has been achieved through to the use of composite materials and design optimization. The Technodinamika-developed system offers improved reliability, a longer service life, low operating cost and high degree of commonality. The estimated running time of the system till discarding is 80,000 flying hours or 60,000 flights. The design and the operation algorithm of the system provide protection against false alarms; moreover, this is ensured both at sensor level and at the level of the processor itself.
