Russia's Ministry of Defense is developing hardware and software for the unification of information and analytical flight safety systems for the air force.

A demo version of the system is expected to be unveiled at a joint training meeting involving high ranking officials from the flight safety services. The meeting will take place on May 19-21.

'After testing and debugging, the unified flight safety system will be introduced on all air force units of Russia's Armed Forces. Other entities of the state aviation will be incorporated into the system,' said Major-General Alexander Berzan, the chief of Aviation Safety in the Russian Armed Forces.

The unified system is based on a series of information systems designed to gather, store, visualize, analyze and simulate flight safety data, Russia's Ministry of Defense noted.

'Functionally the system comprises command facilities of the Ministry's air force units. In the long term it could include cooperating federal agencies and other interested parties,' Russia's Ministry of Defense added.
