BOEING WILL PURSUE TECHNICAL RESEARCH IN RUSSIA

 BOEING WILL PURSUE TECHNICAL RESEARCH IN RUSSIA
 MOSCOW, Aug. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- The Boeing Commercial Airplane Group


(BCAG) said it will pursue establishment of a technical research center in the Moscow area.
 Benjamin A. Cosgrove, BCAG senior vice president for technical and government affairs, signed a joint communique today with Dr. Anotoly G. Bratukhin, director general of the Aviation Department of the Ministry of Industry for the Government of the Russian Federation.
 The proposed Boeing Technical Research Center in Moscow would utilize scientists and engineers associated with the highly regarded Russian aerospace community.
 "Aviation is a high-technology field," Cosgrove said. "The Russians have a solid reputation for their technical expertise in aerospace matters.
 "It only seems natural that, in today's environment of cooperation and industrial consolidation, Boeing should seek out ways to assist in the integration of the Russian aviation industry into the global aerospace community," Cosgrove said.
 Following its feasibility study, Boeing expects to be able to begin implementation of the technical research center early next year. The center's activity is expected to be confined to work for commercial aviation programs.
 Boeing recently completed a cooperative test program evaluating the TsAGI Research Institute's transonic wind tunnel performance capabilities and the accuracy of its data acquisition system.
 In addition, Boeing has had discussions with aviation-related industries about materials and technologies which may be of mutual benefit.
