For coordination of research and development in the field of information technologies on the NIIZhA railway transport in 2000 it was transformed to leading research institute of the industry – the Russian research and design institute of informatization, automation and communication on railway transport (VNIIAS by Ministry of Railways of Russia). The new stage of informatization – integration of the industry automated and managing systems began.


In 1987 the SOYUZZHELDORAVTOMATIZATION scientific and production association which included the research institute of railway automation (RIRA) formed based on CB TsSh and divisions of the All-Union Research Institute of Railway Transport (AURIRT) was created. They brought in institute scientific and technical solutions and developments in the field of automatic equipment and communication which then found implementation and broad practical application in processes of operation of the railroads.
