Leading scientists who have worked with laboratory

David Waring Dunham



Bachelor of Astronomy, University of California, Berkeley (1964). Ph.D. in astronomy, a specialty - celestial mechanics, Yale University (1971).

He has extensive experience in astrodynamics, designing orbits of spacecraft, astronomy, and computer programming. This experience includes numerous complex interplanetary trajectory and lunoproletnye for several missions, including mission met with near-Earth asteroid (NEAR, including nominal and part-time options for the flight), the Observatory to study solar-terrestrial relationships (STEREO), the nucleus of a comet mission CONTOUR, International Research comet (ICE; since been named the third International Solar-Terrestrial Explorer, or ISSE-3, the first mission to the libration point, which was preceded by a series of flybys of the moon, the revealed a real scientific challenge and made it possible to change the path so as to send the device to intercept a comet-Jacobini Zinner in 1985), the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO), prolonged mission Sakigake, WIND, and several planned missions.

He is currently working on the project team c MESSENGER mission, together with colleagues Applied Physics Laboratory of Johns Hopkins University. In addition, as President of the International Association for Measurement of time Eclipses (IOTA), he has organized and continues to work on the prediction, the observation of solar eclipses, lunar eclipses, and eclipses of asteroids. He determined the diameter of the small variations of the Sun and several sizes and shapes of asteroids from observations. He received the first confirmed observations of the flash of a meteor impact with the surface of the moon in November 1999.

Ravil Ravilyevich Nazirov



Professor of the Department of Mathematical Simulation MIEM, Doctor of Technical Sciences (in celestial mechanics).

Education: 1989 - Doctor of Technical Sciences, Space Research Institute, USSR Academy of Sciences, 1979 - Candidate of Technical Sciences, Space Research Institute, USSR Academy of Sciences, 1974 - graduated with honors from the Mechanics and Mathematics Faculty of Moscow State University.

Career in 1974 at the Institute of Space Research engineer, junior researcher, senior researcher, Head of Department, Head of Computer Department of the Institute, the deputy. Director of the Institute for Science. Honored Scientist of Russian Federation. Since 2008 (part time) professor of "Mathematical modeling" MIEM, scientific director of the REC SPACE established jointly MIEM and IKI.

research interests are related to research in the field of mathematical modeling of mechanical systems, motion detection and management of the discrete nature of the measurement data and corrective actions to guarantee approach to assessing the reliability of the results of the operation of information-measuring systems, the creation of automated information systems, remote sensing from space, design and development of telecommunications networks and systems, as well as research in the field of navigation support and planning of space experiments.

The main scientific results:

  • Using telecommunications technology to solve the problem of automation of designing a monitoring system for remote sensing data and ground measurements.
  • investigated and developed methods for guaranteeing the approach to assessing the reliability of operation of information-measuring systems.
  • developed, designed and implemented by the Russian Space Research Network / Internet, bringing together along with the basic science and space organizations, many institutions of Sciences.
  • A system of distributed data processing of space experiments, archiving and distribution, as well as navigational information system security and planning of complex multisatellite experiments.

Evgeny Nikolaevich Chumachenko



Head of the Department of Mathematical Simulation MIEM, Professor, Doctor of Technical Sciences (in continuum mechanics). 

In 1974 he graduated from the Mechanics and Mathematics Faculty of Moscow State University and the distribution assigned to work at the Ministry of Energy Spetssetstroy USSR. He was engaged in the development of automated systems for construction management of high-voltage transmission lines and substations. From 1978 to 1982 he studied in graduate school and worked at the Moscow Institute of Steel and Alloys. In 1981 he defended his Ph.D. thesis on the development of methods for modeling and calculation of deformation of materials under superplastic conditions. From 1982 to 1989 he worked in the NGO VNIIMetmash Mintyazhmash Soviet deputy chief of CAD. Decision of the Higher Certifying Commission, he was awarded the title of "Senior Researcher" in the field of mechanics of machines and mechanisms. In 1989 he joined the MIEM. In 1994 he defended his doctoral thesis "Mathematical modeling of processes forming materials under isothermal deformation and superplasticity." In the 1996 decision of the HAC Russia he was awarded the academic title "Professor" in the department of mathematical modeling. In April 2004 he was elected a corresponding member of Academy of Natural Sciences. In 2006 he was awarded the title "Honored Worker of Higher School". From 2007 - Acting head of the department of mathematical modeling. C 2008 - Honored Scientist of Russian Federation, Academician of the Academy of Natural Sciences, and in the same year was elected chair of the competition of Mathematical Modeling.

C 2007 operates a leading researcher (part) of the Institute for Space Research, Russian Academy of Sciences. In the Space Research Institute organized a special group that performs projects related to space exploration, development of new equipment and control systems, studies of the Earth from space, the study of the surface of planets in the solar system, managed the creation of missions and robotics. COSMOS is the head of SEC, established in conjunction MIEM and IKI.

Professor Chumachenko is the author of 10 books and over 280 articles in scientific journals in the field of mathematical modeling of physical-mechanical systems and processes, continuum mechanics, metal forming, biomechanics. For his scientific achievements and a series of books on mathematical modeling in nonlinear mechanics, Russian Academy of Natural Sciences awarded the Order "For the benefit of the fatherland" to them. VNTatishchev. For long-term high-performance scientific and pedagogical activity - the Order "For his contributions to society".

Nathan Andreyevich Eismont



The guiding researcher, candidate of technical sciences (celestial mechanics).

He graduated from the Faculty of aircraft in the MAI 1962 . In 1962, he worked in the Rocket and Space Corporation "Energia" as an engineer and senior engineer. Area career ran from the creation of intercontinental missiles to oaket carrier for the Soviet mission to the moon - the so-called Project N -1. also participated in the creation of the upper stage to launch a spacecraft to Mars and Venus.
In 1968 he graduated from the Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics, Moscow State University.
Since 1968 he has been working at the Institute of Space Research in the department of flight dynamics and control of spacecraft in the position of research assistant and later a leading researcher. In 1972 he defended his PhD.

took part in the development of almost all the trajectories of spacecraft, launched for scientific research, such as-series «Prognoz», "Activniy", "Apex", "Interball-1, 2 "," Resurs ". It was designed software to determine the parameters of the location of these satellites. Location of the control system and orbit have been developed for the project subsatellites "Interball", including software.

for the project « Relict » has developed a highly elliptical orbit with initial apogee height of 700 000 km for the measurement of microwave background radiation.

participated in drafting the ESA INTEGRA in part related to the development of the orbit and the startup script.

In recent years, working on the problem of orbits around the libration points for spacecraft equipped with solar sails, and the establishment of methods for control of the orbits of such devices.

The results of the above have been published in more than 70 articles.
