Authors: Shukshunov V.E. ( - The Center for Space Simulator Development and Personnel Training (Professor, Director General), Ph.D; Yanyushkin V.V. ( - The Center for Space Simulator Development and Personnel Training (Deputy General Manager), Ph.D;
Abstract: The article describes design and development of integrated training and simulator framework based on advanced technologies, virtualization and datacenter for united set integration, creation of range information system for dynam-ic objects management trainings. It is quite difficult tocontrol a lot of developed simulators generations that have various us-er and program interfaces, located in different rooms and buildings of training center. Besides, the complexity of specialists training is increasing. The relevant objective is designand single-shot development of such system or complex, which can be repeatedly upgraded and used as a product of double or triple purpose. For example, for initial preparation and acquaintance of trainees, training of specialists and restoration of skills using educational management or lessons written down earlier. Synthesis of advanced information technologies, developing space simulators experience and relevant objectives oftraining manned spacecraft crews will allow creating theoretical and practical basis for new generation design of training technical equipment.

Authors: ( - ; Yanyushkin V.V. ( - The Center for Space Simulator Development and Personnel Training (Deputy General Manager), Ph.D;
Abstract: The paper presents an alternative solution for the problem of association and cooperation arrangements of sim-ulators software, training systems and complexes in a common information space based on distributed network simulation environment. The principles of construction, architecture and capabilities of distributed network simulation environment SOTA are considered in detail. The steps to create trainingsystems and complexes based on the modeling environment SOTA are described. Using distributed modeling system while developing systems of different complexity will provide easy integration, modernization and further service. And accurate splitting into components (knots united in a local computer net-work) will help to separate functional capabilities. For example, for sea simulator the knot modeling tactical situation will model behavior of objects, the knot modeling object willmodel onboard systems and devices, the knot modeling meteorolog-ical situation will model weather and environment, the simulator controlling knot will control and manage trainingcourse. Every knot is a virtual server. It is located on the physical server and combined by SOTA transport through a localnetwork with a set of workplaces and contents of databases.

5. Application of the fuzzy sets theory to the decision making problem under conditions of uncertainty [№3 за 2013 год]
Authors: Pogorelov A.S. ( - Don Branch of the Space Simulator Center (Engineer-Programmer); Panfilov A.N. ( - South-Russian State Polytechnical University (Associate Professor), Ph.D;
Abstract: The paper presents an approach to decision making under conditions of uncertainty, based on the application of fuzzy sets theory methods. This approach is applied for decision making problems, which are formally presented in terms of the game theory (statistical games). The task must be represented in the form of decision matrix, indicating the set of all pos-sible alternatives, the set of possible states of the system, the values of performance indicators, as well as the states probabil-ity distribution. This approach is an alternative to thewell-known decision criteria used in statistical games problems, such as Bayesian criterion, the probability maximization, dispersion minimum, modal criteria, etc. The distinctive feature of this ap-proach is that the expert doesn’t need the exact numerical values as the efficiency values, but he can specify some verbal de-scriptions in the form of sentences. This is achieved by using fuzzy sets with their membership functions as the assessment of functionality. Using methods of the fuzzy sets theory allows simplifying the expert evaluation process and increasing the de-cision making quality.

Abstract: The article considers the automation of sheduling creation, editing and approval processes for International Space Station (ISS). The timelines structured as hierarchical system, its levels corresponds to the interval of expedition, one week and one day long timelines. Software of Automated Planning System (APS) of ISS developed by authors of this article provides coordinated planning of all crew member activities and activities of ground and on-board control complexes of ISS. APS software also allows creating cargo spaceship timelines. The article observes following topics: system design, activity and timeline database development, design of timeline editor which provides creating and editing timelines, resolving con-flicts, creating complex activities with predefined execution sequence and intermediate periods. The planningprocess imple-mentation with APS takes into account a lot of factors that have an influence on timeline quality and efficiency, and also sat-isfies the sequence-related and resource related restrictions.The paper presents an original method of coding and systematiza-tion of activities, that allows maintaining correspondence between different versions of the same activity in a different time-lines and performing automatic comparison of the timelines. The APS complex for timeline exchanging between internation-al partner organizations that sharing the ISS use is observed.
