30th Central Scientific Research Institute, Ministry of Defence (Russia) (Name in Russian - 30-й центральный научно-исследовательский институт Министерства обороны Российской Федерации) was a scientific research organization operated by the Ministry of Defence (Russia) which was dedicated to leading a wide range of studies in support of enhancing the Russian Air Force’s capabilities and development of the aerospace warfighting methods, technologies and complexes.[1]

In the English-language sources, the institute is often mentioned by the transliteration of its Russian abbreviation – TsNII-30. The institute was located in Shchyolkovo (Russian: Щёлково), Moscow Oblast at the Chkalovsky Airport.

In 2010, TsNII-30 was reorganized and became an organizational unit of the 4th Central Scientific Research Institute, Ministry of Defence (Russia).[2]

TsNII-30 has operated for exactly 50 years.

History[edit]

TsNII-30 was established on January 16, 1961.

Its original name was the Central Scientific Research Institute, Russian Air Force (ru:ЦНИИ ВВС). It was based on the Ministry of Defence Computer Center No. 3 in Noginsk, Moscow Oblast. The center got the status of one of the TsNII-30 organizational units - Air Force Control Systems Research Center [1](Научно-исследовательского центра систем управления ВВС). Later, TsNII-15, Russian Navy research institute, located in Leningrad was amalgamated with the TsNII-30 and became its subsidiary focused on the Navy aviation.

As of 2006, the institute’s workforce had 16 Doctors of Science and 215 Ph.Ds (Candidates of Science).

The TsNII-30 has closely cooperated with the Scientific Council of the Russian Air Force, other Ministry of Defence research institutes (TsNII-46, TsNII-4, TsNII-16, etc.), defence industry research institutes (GosNIIAS, Baranov Central Institute of Aviation Motor Development, TsAGI, etc.), aviation design bureaus (Tupolev, Mikoyan, Antonov, Yakovlev, Ilyushin, and Russian Academy of Sciences’ organizations.

Scope of Activities and Projects[edit]

The fields of the TsNII-30 research included strategic, tactical, technical, economical studies. Some of areas of the activities were:

- Threat assessment and forecasting.

- Defining operational and technical requirements.

- Monitoring defence industry progress on the Russian Air Force acquisitions.

- Performance evaluations of the newly developed aerospace technologies and complexes.

Systems approach to the development and procurement of the aerospace warfighting means and simulation modeling were the corner stones of the TsNII-30 research methodology.

TsNII-30 was part of a broad Russian aerospace industry cooperation to build:
