Information about the Editor-in-Chief of Underwater Investigation and Robotics



Kiselev Lev Vladimirovich, Doctor of Engineering, Principal Researcher IMTP FEB RAS.
He graduated from the Ural State University in specialty «Theoretical Mechanics» in 1961.  Worked as an engineer at machine building plant in Miass city, Chelyabinsk region; was employed as a scientist at the Institute of Mathematics and Mechanics of the Ural scientific center. In 1970 he defended his candidate dissertation. In 1972 he started his work at the Institute of Automation and Control Processes of the Far Eastern Scientific Center, and in 1988, after establishment of the Institute of Marine Technology Problems became its leading researcher. In 1997 he defended his doctoral dissertation. 
Kiselev L.V. is a well-known scientist in matters of navigation and control over moving objects, one of the coordinators of the science, and the Russian school of underwater robotics. When developing successive autonomous unmanned underwater vehicles-robots (AUV/AUR) he laid and developed the theoretical foundations for dynamics of control systems, researched and developed integrated positioning and motion control systems, the methods of AUV spatial motion organization when areas, objects, and physical fields surveying. The results of such theoretical works formed the basis for development of deep-water AUVs upon international and Russian projects. Kiselev L.V. took a direct part in development of projects, tests of the vehicles and practical works on their reliability field testing. 
He is the author and co-author of more than 170 scientific publications: scientific and scientific-journalistic monographs, journal articles, scientific technical reports, proceedings at the international and Russian scientific forums. He is the Publishing Editor of the majority of the publications of the Institute. Kiselev L.V. is the member of the regional group for IFAC national committee, the member of the RAS academic board, the initiator and the co-chairman of the All-Russian scientific and technical conference "Technical Problems of World Ocean Exploration". In 2005 he initiated foundation of the scientific and technical journal “Underwater Investigation and Robotics” and has been at the head of it for all years. As for upcoming trends of research, Kiselev L.V. exercises academic advising on the problems of development of AUV on the principles of intelligent control. He is the head of the scientific and research works on “underwater robotics” and the coordinator of the promising projects on development of deep-water vehicles in the Institute.
