"Instrument complex stabilizer arms light armored vehicles" presented by Scientific-production company JSC "Petrovskyi Kyiv automation factory" was stated amid the works awarded the State Prize of Ukraine for Science and Technology in 2016. Also, a group of authors includes D.Sc. in engineering , Professor of Instrument Engineering at Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute, Honored Worker of Science of Ukraine, Bezvesilna Olena Mykolaivna. Our congratulations to her!
The target achieved by the authors of design is extremely essential, it enables to extend the combat capabilities of light armored vehicles. Instrument stabilizer system is intended, in particular, for automatic unit arm guidance at ground and air targets that are quickly maneuvering. Experts inform that it is the first time in Ukraine a full cycle of development, testing and serial production of guidance system and weapon stabilization are created. According to tactical characteristics, the system expands significantly the combat capabilities of light armored vehicles, facilitates the tower control not requiring replacement after the shot. The parts and components manufactured in Ukraine are mainly used in design.
Comparing with foreign counterparts, the system is twice as accurate as they are and 2.5 times more cost-effective , the efficiency of the system is 67%. 250 new weapon stabilization systems have already been developed and introduced, particularly in the area ATO (anti-terrorist operation) that totals more than hundred systems. The results of the operation in various climatic and combat conditions showed the advantages of the new instrument stabilizer of foreign counterparts in the tactical, technical and economic terms.
Design elements are found in 7 monographs, 9 manuals, 285 articles (65 in the international publications). The total number of references to the authors’ publications is 118 (according to the Google Scholar base), h-index = 11. Novelty and competitive edge of technical solutions are protected by 17 patents. Protected 6 doctoral and 12 master's thesis.
Bezvesilna Olena Mykolaivna – Ph.D (1991), a member of the Academy of Engineering Sciences of Ukraine (1994), graduated from KPI in 1972 with a degree in Hydroscopic and navigation devices. In 1977 defended master's dissertation, in 1991 − doctoral dissertation. Professor of Instrumentation (12.1991- 05.1992), Head of Instrumentation (05.1992-06.2001), Head of the accreditation of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine (02.1996 - 08.1997), Professor of Instrumentation (06.2001- present), Honored Scientist of Ukraine (1999), Professor Emeritus of KPI (2007). The head of the Dissertation Advisory Committee.
She is the author of 950 scientific publications, including 35 monographs, 47 certificates of authorship and patents , 14 textbooks and 9 manuals with a stamp of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine. Olena Mykolaivna established a new scientific field of mechanics: the development of the theory and principles of the new automatic diagnostic information and measurement system using new precise sensing device and advanced computer technology. She was a supervisor of 7 doctors and 13 candidates of Science.
Bezvesilna Olena Mykolaivna has been a member of the Academy of Engineering Sciences of Ukraine since 1994, an actual member of the New York Academy of Science since 1997, her biographical data are reported into "Who's Who in Ukraine", "Names of Ukraine", "Women of Ukraine ", "Kyiv's citizens " “Kyiv record of XXI century", " Who is Who in the world ", "Prominent people of the twentieth century ", "Successful woman of Ukraine ", "Great Ukraine, 25 years of independence ". She had awards and distinctions.
Her scientific researches are dedicated to fundamental and application problems of mechanics of the navigation devices of the moving objects, dynamics of the air electromechanical systems, different design of information-measuring systems, and others.
