    Scientists of IBRAE RAS have developed unique computer codes for the Breakthrough project.


    In the coming years, the institute plans to complete the certification process of developed codes in Rostekhnadzor

    MOSCOW, November 15th. / Tass /. The Institute for Nuclear Safety Development Problems of the Russian Academy of Sciences (IBRAE) has created unique computer programs - codes for describing the working conditions of a new generation NPP within the framework of the “Breakthrough” project. The scientific director of the institute, academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences Leonid Bolshov told TASS on the sidelines of the extended bureau of the Department of Energy, Mechanical Engineering, Mechanics and Management Processes of the Russian Academy of Sciences, which was held on Thursday in Moscow.

    The meeting was dedicated to the 30th anniversary of the foundation of IBRAE RAN.

    "We laid the creation of the most up-to-date, better than abroad, codes. 17 codes of the new generation were developed. Now there is a revision and support of these codes <...> We made them universal - so that they are suitable for BREST-300 and for BN- 1200, and for SVBR-100, ”explained Bolshov, adding that in the coming years IBRAE plans to complete the certification process for the developed codes at Rostechnadzor.

    IBRAE RAN is a participant of the Rosatom Breakthrough project, which is implemented as part of the federal target program Nuclear Power Technologies of the New Generation for the Period 2010-2015 and for the Long Term to 2020. The project involves the construction of a complex consisting of a fast neutron reactor with lead coolant BREST-300, a fuel refabrika plant and a plant for the processing of irradiated fuel, explained TASS at IBRAE RAS. The tasks of the institute include the development of computer code systems for describing all the processes occurring at nuclear power plants of the new generation - with fast-neutron reactors.

    "Yandex" can present its  smartphone on November 19


    https://ria.ru/technology/20181114/1532740402.html

    MOSCOW, November 14 - RIA News. The largest Russian Internet company "Yandex" plans to present its own phone at the presentation on November 19, the newspaper "Vedomosti" writes, citing sources.

    At the press conference scheduled for this date, Yandex promises to show a big search update and new products, the company’s invitation says.
    According to sources of the newspaper, Yandex has agreed on sales of a smartphone from M.Video, and Yandex plans to sell VimpelCom. Dates of the beginning of sales, the characteristics of the device and its cost sources, "Vedomosti" is not called. According to one of them, in the course of negotiations “Yandex” with a large retail network in early November, the retail price of 19.99 thousand rubles was discussed.

    The characteristics of Yandex.Telephone generally correspond to inexpensive Chinese smartphones, newspaper sources told.
    The existence of "Yandex.Telephone" became known in July from the register of cryptographic tools, the import of which is allowed into the countries of the Eurasian Economic Union. In August, it turned out that Yandex was negotiating sales of the device with major retail chains, including M.Video-Eldorado and VimpelCom (their representatives confirmed such negotiations). But it was not possible to come to an agreement then, since Yandex insisted on a too low mark-up, the friends of the participants in the talks said.

    At the end of May, the company introduced another gadget - a smart Yandex.Station column under the control of the voice assistant Alice. Its sales started in early July.


    Great start - unlike Yota they start form low end. Thus can earn a lot and become a brand with time to build high end models too.

    I say its about time that Russia make an effort to have its own Samsung, Sony or Huawei brand. We will see how successful they'll be in both the domestic and eventually international market. However from the article I have already seen some shortcomings, it is not mentioned where the phones were made, and it still use an OS developed by Google and components from Qualcomm which is an adversary's company (USA). I hope they can fully localize production of these products in the near future (both software and hardware).

    First off, there are other Russian smartphones. Even ones that are assembled in Russia. Second, there is no real alternative to Android except for sailfish and only 1 Russian company uses it ATM. Yandex still relies on Android market ATM. As well, yandex is fishing the market. Your first phone won't be some grand phone and you put all manufacturing in Russia. What you do is see how well it does, then they make decisions like placing the assembly shop in Russia, then slowly increase domestic materials.

    We are still waiting for Baikal to release their ARM processor. Till then, it's foreign based ones for now. Personally I would have looked at Elvees for their ARM processor but I imagine the Qualcomm is cheaper and effective.

    They use that for lenses in thermal sights because it does not block IR frequencies like glass does... (note glass blocks IR which is why it is so efficient in greenhouses... where it lets the sun shine in and heat up material in the greenhouse but blocks the heat from leaving...)

    I would imagine certain laser weapons would use such lenses too.

    EKATERINBURG, December 7th. / TASS /. About 900 research laboratories are planned to be created in Russia by 2024 as part of the national project "Science", said Russian Minister of Science and Higher Education Mikhail Kotyukov at a meeting with youth activists and students of the Ural Federal University (UFU) on Friday.

    "For six years [as part of the national project" Science "] we must create 900 new research laboratories. And at least, we expect that half of them will consist of young scientists and be headed by them," said Kotyukov.

    According to the minister, the task has also been set to significantly increase the number of researchers in Russia. "We have a common task - to increase the number of researchers in the country significantly. <...> We need 35 thousand new researchers who will work in state organizations and in the non-state sector," he said.

    The national project "Science" is being developed in accordance with the May decree of Russian President Vladimir Putin. According to the decree, in 2024, Russia should enter the top five leading countries in the world engaged in research and development in areas determined by the priorities of scientific and technological development. By the same date, it is required to create at least 15 world-class research and educational centers, and the instrumentation base of leading scientific organizations should be updated by no less than 50%.

    The first tranche of the synchrotron in Novosibirsk will be 500 million rubles



    The funds will be used for the preparation of design and estimate documentation.

    NOVOSIBIRSK, December 11. / TASS /. About 500 million rubles will be allocated from the federal budget for the preparation of design estimates for the construction of the latest generation SKIF synchrotron in Novosibirsk. The governor of the Novosibirsk region Andrei Travnikov told this to journalists.

    “The flagship project for the development of the Novosibirsk Scientific Center is a source of synchrotron radiation SKIF. More than 37 billion rubles will be allocated from the budget of the Russian Federation for its creation,” said Travnikov.

    The decision to build a synchrotron was supported by the President of Russia Vladimir Putin at the Science and Education Council in February 2018. The source of synchrotron radiation based on the INP SB RAS will become part of the national mega-project ISCI-4 at the Kurchatov Institute. The first stage of the creation of the research infrastructure of unique scientific installations of the megasiens class should be completed by 2024 within the framework of the national project "Science".

    Synchrotron radiation is used in many scientific areas: from the study of the structure of materials to the study of new pharmaceutical products and the diagnosis of diseases.

    Russian drone "Ropewalker" for repair of power lines presented at the inter-African exhibition in Cairo

    https://tass.ru/nauka/5901291

    CAIRO, December 12th. / Corr. TASS Dinah Pyanykh, Dmitry Tarasov. The Russian drone Kanathod, designed for automated diagnostics and local repair of high-voltage power lines, is presented in Cairo at the First Inter-African Trade Fair 201 The Intra-African Trade Fair 2018. The Future Laboratory Company Skolkovo "turned out to be one of the few non-African participants in the exhibition devoted to the establishment of trade relations both between the states of the Black Continent and with the outside world.

    “The region of the Middle East and Africa seems to us very interesting for our project, especially since we already have certain achievements with the countries of the region,” said Alexander Lemekh, director of Future Laboratory LLC, in an interview with TASS. “We have already completed one pilot project in the power grid Dubai companies are still actively preparing to test a pilot project in Saudi Arabia. There is another project in Vietnam, and now our task is to increase our presence in this region. " According to Lemech, the company has entered into contracts with a local partner in Nigeria for about $ 2 million.

    The principle of the "ropeway" company "Laboratory of the Future" is that the drone takes off and sits on the wires, recharging directly from high-voltage lines. "Passing through this wire, it carries out a complete diagnosis of the condition of the lines, including the wires themselves, insulators, supports, nodes on the highway, as well as maintenance and local repair," Lemekh explained. there is a necessary brigade accompanying him, but now we are heading towards creating a fully automatic system that could independently cover up to 200 km. " According to Lemekh, such a robot would be extremely useful in the taiga, wetlands, in the desert. "When switching to full automatic control, the dispatcher’s task will be reduced to

    African market for Russian drone
    According to the agency interlocutor, in Cairo they have scheduled talks with representatives of Nigeria and Ghana. “Our plans are to expand to North Africa, first of all Egypt, Algeria,” he said. “We hope that the contact with the Egyptian side will be made as part of this exhibition, we have already sent a letter to the Ministry of Energy of Egypt.” According to Lemekh, their startup was launched in 2011, this project has been implemented since 2014.

    "At present, we are focused on the performance of diagnostics or repair work, that is, we do not just supply drones, but also our services, personnel. Perhaps in the future we will supply the systems themselves." “Now at our disposal are four drones that we have produced, which we send to countries on request, we carry out repairs, and then we take them back,” he explained. power lines, and this is about 600 km, and train personnel so that in the future they can independently work with the finished model.

    As the head of the company noted, the global wear of power grids is about 50%, in Russia the situation is slightly worse - about 65%, many networks have exhausted their resources, and in order to repair them more efficiently, it is necessary to proceed to repairs as they are. "And that means," he said, "it is important to find the place where you need to change them, and put a patch there. Therefore, such systems seem to be in great demand both in Russia and around the world."

    Russian business mission at the exhibition
    The first inter-African trade fair, the 2018 The Intra-African Trade Fair, will run until December 17. More than a thousand companies from 40 countries of not only the African continent, but also other countries of the world, including Russia, China, Indonesia, take part in it. In the pavilions of the center are samples of agricultural products, building materials, pharmaceuticals, textiles, as well as products of heavy industry and energy.

    As part of the international exhibition, the Russian Expert Center (REC) organizes its business mission, which is being held in order to strengthen bilateral cooperation in the trade and economic sphere and promote products of Russian export-oriented suppliers to Egypt and African countries. The panel discussion on December 12 will feature a presentation of the Russian Industrial Zone (RPG) project - an integrated production cluster in the economic zone of the Suez Canal, which will provide new opportunities for Russian exporters and suppliers willing to localize their assembly and production facilities in close proximity to the markets of the Middle East Of Africa. This year, a framework intergovernmental agreement on the implementation of this project was signed, and work began on a development contract.

    The main driver of drone technology to date has been Israel and the US and for them to make a drone useful you need to put a gun on it...

    Russia had been using robots for years. Surveillance drones and helper robots.

    They have had some impressive stuff. But robotics is still a very far off thing in an every day sense.

    The robot in Papa's link being a man in a suite is the idea they are wanting to push - they are trying to push the concept of a person that is actually a robot. That won't happen anytime soon. The suite looked very expensive and high tech, but really, in the end, is this what we want? Robots that can act and think like humans?
