International Institute for Advanced Aerospace Technologies – IIAAT

Educational Programs • Postgraduate and Research • Advanced Projects Management


The institute collaborates with the most competent specialists as well as designers of instrumentation for air and space craft in Russia, taking the advantage of gathering them on an inter discipline and belonging status.

The institute works in close cooperation under its holding structure “IIAAT Holding JSC”, part of Skolkovo.

In particular, JSC and the institute are developing highly innovative AEROBOATS with hybrid engine (for the first time in the world).

The propellers are rotated by small lightweight electric motor, the power for which is produced by low-powered diesel generator with stationary optimum mode of operation, solar panels and rechargeable battery, charged from an external source.

Innovative Nano-Material based Anti-Friction Technology is effectively used to reduce energy losses onboard. As a result, high energy efficiency and ecological friendliness of the vehicle are duly ensured. Remote diagnostics of the vehicle and assistance in troubleshooting are provided using satellite communication channel and IoT.
