Brovar Boris Vsevolodovich was born on March 30, 1941 in Moscow in the family of MIIGAiK students. Father, Vsevolod Vladimirovich Brovar, later became a prominent scientist in the field of geodetic gravimetry, was employed at MIIGAiK, and then at the GAIS. Mother, Goryainova Tamara Vladimirovna, was an observer of the Time-Keeping service at the CNIIGAiK (Central Research Institute for Geodesy, Aerial Survey and Cartography), and then at the State Astronomy Institute named after Sternberg (after moving the Time-Keeping Service there).
In 1964 B.V Brovar graduated from MIIGAiK majoring in astronomical geodesy. At the training practice in the Eastern Sayan in 1962 made observations at 2 and 3 grade triangulation points. At the pre-diploma practice at the Institute for Physics and Technology of the USSR Academy of Sciences in 1963, made measurements at the points of the being founded state gravimetric network of the USSR from Murmansk to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. The supervisor of the diploma work was Y.D. Boulanger.
In 1964 - 1993 worked in the Central Research Institute 4 of the Defense Ministry, where in 1972 protected his PhD on development machine gravimetric method for calculating the components of the pendulum bobs and heights quasigeoid survey support for strategic missiles. In 1989 - a doctoral one, in which he developed a combined method of calculating the impact of the anomalous gravitational field of the Earth on the trajectory of missiles, as well as the influence of the errors of the initial geodetic and gravimetric data on the accuracy of the missile's head penetration. He proposed:
- a gravitation derivative method of determining the initial geodetic data using the first and second derivatives of the gravitational potential;
- a hypsometry-gravimetric method for determining the altitude using a gravimeter and pre-prepared data on the anomalies of acceleration due to gravity;
- a cascade method for determining the acceleration vector of the force of gravity, orientation and increments of the coordinates of the moving object; method of determining autonomous geodetic height measuring chamber of cascade system at the initial point and a method of determining the initial orientation of the auxiliary measuring chamber and constituting the pendulum bob in the original point by the cascade method.
Under his supervision, two applicants successfully defended their Ph.D. theses.
Since 1993 has been working in CNIIGAiK as leading researcher. Actively participated in the preparation of the document "Basic Principles on Structuring the Russian Federation State Geodetic Network" 2004, "User's Guide for performing work in the coordinate system of 1995 (SC-95)" 2004, in making rationales and methodological support of the Federal target sub-program "Use of satellite navigation systems for geodetic coverage of the territory of Russia" and its subsequent adjustments. As a deputy Chief Editor and an author of the scientific and technical digest "Physical Geodesy" (on the matters of surveying, map-making, aerial and space surveys) was actively engaged in issuing it in 1999 and 2004. As the Managing Editor of the book "Gravity and geodesy" and one of the 48 authors prepared it for publishing in 2008. Is the Author of more than 120 works, including five copyright certificates, 38 classified publications and 16 commonly accessed ones.
