At all stages of creating experimental models and prototypes of a new class of underground machines "Geokhod", developers faced problems. At the design stage the problem was the lack of methods for determining the parameters of the main elements and systems of underground machines that interact with the geo-environment during their movement. At the production stage, they faced the problem of the lack of a methodology to ensure the accuracy and man-ufacturability of specific systems of underground machines. In addition, the problem of scientific and methodological "deficit"was present at the test stage. The development of systems of a new class of underground machines is constrained by the lack of special scientific and methodological support. When creating a new class of underground devices moving in the bowels of the Earth and using the geo-environment, there is an urgent need to study the effects of the geo-environ-ment on bodies moving in the geo-environment. In the aircraft industry there is a fundamental science that studies the forces arising on the surface of a solid body moving in the air - aerodynamics of aircrafts. Thus, by analogy with aircraft construction, studies of the effects of the geo-environment on bodies moving in the geo-environment should be assigned to a new scientific direction and the scientific specialty "Geodynamics of underground machines". The article proposes a draft passport of the specialty and a field of research in the new direction "Geodynamics of underground machines". This scientific direction is one of the basic elements of an emerging advanced technological structure for the development of the underground space, based on new approaches in construction geotechnology and geotechnics.
