MOSCOW, Jan. 27 (UPI) -- Proposed legislation to create a technology center near Moscow has won approval from the State Duma Committee on Industry.

Rostec, a state corporation that promotes development, production and export of high-tech industrial products, reported the proposal was passed on its first reading by the committee -- part of the Russian Parliament's lower house.

The proposed law is to help focus resources allocated to developing aviation technology. The center, to be named the Zhukovsky Institute national research center, would conduct scientific research and development, and be directly involved in the formation of the state's scientific and technical policies for the aviation industry.

During the first phase of its operation, the center is expected to include five research organizations: the Central Aero-Hydrodynamic Institute, the Central Institute of Aviation Motors, the State Research Institute of Aviation Systems, the Siberian Research Institute of Aviation, and the State Governmental Aircraft Systems Testing Site.

Funding for the center's initiatives will initially be provided by existing Russian federal programs, Rostec said.
