The results of the first competition of technology projects defense in Ukraine

Having completed the first in Ukraine competition of innovative projects in the field of defense technologies held in the Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute on May 14-15.

With the authors of 32 of the 43 projects that came to its finale, protocols on implementation intentions have been concluded. Among the projects that are planned to be implemented are “Creation of a national satellite remote sensing group of the Earth” (development of Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute specialists), “Unmanned Aeronautical Complex of Quad-Copleck Type for Special Applications” (Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute), “Universal Base Chassis Mobile Robot of High Passability and Maneuverability” (Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute), “Polymer Machine Gun” (Kharkiv Plant of Personal Protective Equipment LLC), “Mobile Exploitation Attachment “(National Lviv Polytechnic University” , “Paints and Screens for Protection against Electromagnetic Radiation” (Kyiv National University of Technology and Design), “SecurePhone” software package for secured mobile negotiations (LLC “DOLIA & KO LTD”), “Scanning laser-telescopic power module for optical locating systems for the detection and counteraction of UAVs (Institute of Physics of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine), “Laser apparatuses of tactical medicine” (Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute), “Protected radio system of communication and coordination of personnel actions” (INWIS CORP.) and others.

According to the initiator of the contest, the rector of the Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute Michael Zgurovsky, there is hope that at least half of them will be implemented. The State Enterprise “Ukroboronprom”, the rest - the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine and individual state and private enterprises, will support most of the projects. A participant of each of the deals is Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute as an environment in which developers, scholars, investors and industrialists will be able to cooperate effectively.

The projects submitted for the first competition concerned a very wide range of issues, from the improvement of armaments and the development of new tactical medicine, to special information technologies and technologies for obtaining high-strength materials with new properties. So in the future, as Michael Zgurovsky noticed, the organizers of the competition plan to hold it in separate directions.
