Information and Technological Factors of Developing Cooperation in the Military-Industrial Complex and Risk-Based Approach to its Formation While Creating the System of Aerospace Defense

The article describes technical and economic issues of providing defense potential in the aerospace sector under in conditions of increasing military and technological challenges and threats and implementing the strategy of import substitution. The paper presents analysis of the information-technological problems of development of domestic military-industrial complex enterprises — developers of aerospace defense systems, it identifies reserves for increasing their efficiency through introducing integrated information systems. On the example of “VNIIRT” JSC the paper presents prospects for implementing the lean manufacturing concept on the basis of product lifecycle management technology. It gives comparative characteristics of cooperation business models in the defense industry both in foreign countries and in Russia. The article identifies technological and organizational-economic factors of developing cooperation of the final integrators, sub-integrators and components suppliers in the military products manufacturing. It sets out system-forming elements of a risk-oriented approach to forming co-operation in the defense-industrial complex. The authors propose a mathematical model of risk indicator for the company-finalist when choosing the composition of enterprises participating in cooperation, based on aggregation of private indicators of scientific and technical, industrial and technological, financial and economic risks. They formulate long-term objectives for the proposed approach implementation with application of neural network technology.

Global Trends in the Development of Small Satellites

Under the conditions of informatization of all human activity aspects special role is acquiring the use of space-based systems that can provide globality, operational efficiency and high frequency of receiving and delivering information to consumers. Following new requirements to space systems necessitates creation of multi-satellite (tens and hundreds of spacecraft) groups in orbit, which cannot be realized through the use of spacecraft with a mass between one and several tons, primarily due to purely economic reasons. This results in the need to significantly reduce weight and size of spacecraft.

Keywords:

Creating a remote monitoring system for dangerous or potentially dangerous objects in order to provide security will become a priority for companies and research institutions in the next few years. Rostekhnadzor is carrying out activities to create a system of remote monitoring of technological processes in dangerous production facilities with the use of modern telemetric facilities, information and communication technologies. In his interview with the chief editor of the “Economic strategies” magazine Alexander Ageev the State Secretary – Deputy Head of Rostekhnadzor Alexander Rybas told about the possibilities of not only qualitatively predict accidents, but also to make recommendations with regard to changing operational risks, about experts certification in the field of industrial safety.

The Concept of a Just War in the Context of Forming Warfare National Ethics

Ideological and theoretical justification of violence and its extreme form — the war — has a solid philosophical and political base. Nevertheless, this question becomes especially acute nowadays. Not least due to the fact that a substantial segment of the confrontation is shifting into the sphere of ideological and political warfare — war of meanings aimed at suppressing the enemy’s will to resist. Wars of the so-called fourth generation are asymmetric and hybrid ones, wars of “everybody against everyone”, in conditions of losing monopoly on violence by state institutions and increasing the power of non-state and mixed (public-private) paramilitary systems will require re-interpretation of the concepts of justice and war sacredness.
