Research studies, certification tests, engineering and consulting in airport technology are traditional activities of Progresstech Group. Since 1991 a wide range of services has been offered:

Research Studies

nauch issledobanya

  • Regulatory documents development
  • Improvement of methods of calculation, design, construction and repair of airfield and road pavements
  • Development of new design solutions for airfield and road pavements
  • Development of new construction materials and technologies
  • Software development, etc.

There were developed new technical solutions and mathematical models that have been highly appreciated by Boeing Company, US Federal Aviation Administration and ICAO.

The long-term researching of Progresstech specialists has resulted in participation in development of the Airdrome Construction Standards and Regulations and publication of «Airdrome Pavements. Modern View» monograph.

Surface Roughness Evaluations of Unpaved and Paved Airfield Runways

issledobanya rovnosti

  • Measurements of irregularities of airfield pavement surfaces using the high precision devices DIPSTICK-2000, SurPRO 3500
  • Calculation of roughness characteristics of paved runways surfaces according to the Russian and international procedures
  • Analysis of soil strength according to the Russian and international procedures
  • Flight operation safety assessment

Surface roughness evaluations of unpaved and paved airfield runways were performed in the airports of Russia and CIS contries for operation of Boeing, ATR, Airbus и Bombardier aircraft.
