V.N. Gridin, V.I. Anisimov, S.A. Almaasali Implementation of Diakoptics Method for Modeling and Calculation of Large Scale Systems (pp. 9-13)
Abstract. The paper considers the diakoptical approach to serial and parallel computing processes for modeling large systems based on the mathematical description of the modeled system as a block-diagonal-lined structure. It is shown that this approach brings substantial gains as cost of RAM, and the speed of solving the problem. Possibility of parallelization of computational processes significantly accelerates the solution of problems on multiprocessor computer systems and allows constructing of distributed simulation systems functioning in the Internet.
Keywords: diakoptics, simulation systems, bordered matrix, distributed systems, Internet-based technologies.

Moving Objects Control and Navigation
A.V. Dobrovidov, E.L. Kulida, I.M. Rudko Optimization of the Object Movement Path on the Probabilistic Criterion in the Mode of Passive Sonar in an Anisotropic Medium (pp. 31-37)
Abstract. The problem of an object route selection and a velocity profile in an anisotropic three dimensional medium of propagation is investigated. The object moves in a threatening environment when some observers located in preset area try to detect it. In this work the probability of object undetection through the whole route by any of the observers is selected as a performance of the object routing. The discrete optimization method of this performance founded on the dynamic programming principle is proposed provided that object movement time is restricted by known limit.
Keywords: object route, performance of object routing, probability of object undetection through whole route, anisotropic three dimensional medium, dynamic programming.
A.M. Shevchenko, G.N. Nachinkina Energy Forecasting Method for Aircraft Safe Braking (pp. 38-44)
Abstract. A method for predicting the reachability of a terminal state at regular or emergency braking modes of aircraft is developed. The method is based on the energy approach to flight control. To improve the forecast reliability the method of algorithms correction is proposed. The simulation results have confirmed the suitability of early warning or notice the pilots about the possibility of continued safe braking on the runway. Such annunciations may improve the situational awareness of the pilot and, thus, reduce the probability of erroneous actions of the crew.
Keywords: information support, energy approach, forecasting methods, braking mode.
A.S. Syrov, A.M. Puchkov, V.Yu. Rutkovsky, V.M. Glumov The Control Tasks of Unmanned Multimode Vehicles Motion (pp. 45-52)
Abstract. The control features of contemporary unmanned vehicles motion are considered. Their trajectories are characterized by wide rangе of flight altitudes including the flight in rarefied atmosphere. This type of vehicles is related to a multimode dynamic objects with changing characteristics during the flight. A brief review of the adaptive methods which can be used in unmanned vehicle control systems is given. The peculiarities of jet and aerodynamic combined control for the regimes of planning and sustained flight are considered.

Abstract. The paper studies the problem of search and selection of routes to develop an automated train control system at the station. Stations that have branched infrastructure are characterized by a lot of number of possible routes. The amount of computation when searching for routes is large.The paper describes the approach to solving the problem of amount of calculation by dividing the station into areas. The problem of finding places of cutset the rail network is set and the algorithm for its solving is proposed. The paper also considers the problem of automating the preparation and selection of route as well as represents the method for analysis of rail networks topologies and approach of algorithmization of control process of train and shunting work.

V.A. Vittikh Evergetics Problems (pp. 69-71)
Abstract. Evergetics problems are formulated. It is postnonclassical incipient science of management processes organization in society. Evergetics focuses on the question of what tasks need to be fulfilled to regulate the problem situation in the society, in contrast to the classical management theory, which is looking for ways of solving these tasks. Among the most important problems taken into consideration are the problems of designing of the situation meaning communicative models, achieving mutual understanding and consensus by the heterogeneous actors, development of communicative actions support systems and the problem of dual interpretation of the social world.
Keywords: management processes, society, problem situation, cybernetics, values, postnonclassical science, evergetics, heterogeneous actor, intersubjectivity, communication, mutual understanding, consensus.
