Our team ranked 4th among 25 teams in the World Cup of 2016. This year the team of the NAS of Belarus consisted of four people and participated in the following competition rounds:
• Technology Contest (calculation, design and manufacturing of an article according to established parameters). As a result, an article, having a mass of 930 g, was made from composite materials (the mass limit of an article was 2000g). It ranked second in terms of mass characteristics among the contestants.
• Simulation and structural analysis (calculations were performed on the criteria for the loss of stability and strength of a composite article in layers for the given model).
• Intellectual Brain Ring Contest (participants were to answer questions on medicine, composites, aircraft engineering and other topics).
• Business Case Contest (business project presentation on composite products commercialization). The team of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus ranked first in the Business-Sense nomination at the contest. The team was awarded a certificate and a gold medal.
During the Composite Battle World Cup, the team of the NASB Scientific and Production Center of Multipurpose Unmanned Systems negotiated with the world's leading organizations dealing with the calculation, design and application of composite materials in various industrial spheres, namely the Moscow Aviation Institute, the Kazan National Research Technical University named after A.N. Tupolev, and the Interindustry Engineering Center "Composites of Russia" of the Bauman Moscow State Technical University. An agreement on further cooperation in the field of composites for unmanned aerial vehicles was reached.
