    Very interesting, from what i have been able to make out of the rough google translation it seems that the company plans to fight to the end.

    This quote summarized the article nicely.
    Regardless of the reasons that led to the inclusion of "T-Platforms" in the U.S. blacklist, it is clear that the preservation of our industry and depending on the goodwill of Defense Americans and their allies makes our technological sovereignty quite arbitrary. This dependence exists in almost all sectors of industry innovation - from machine tools to microelectronic chips. And this dependence should be overcome.

    Although this quote is interesting to.
    the most critical technologies should be developed within the country."

    Not sure which country, but i am hoping it's Russia.

    I've mentioned this before, and i find Russia's development in the area of computer electronics to be abysmal, at least when it comes to the civil industry, where is Russia's Intel, Nvidia or AMD, i know MCST Elbrus is around, but i just don't see them making much of an effort to compete with the big players, i mean hell even there own military has started importing toughbooks and such from abroad and in a number of cases even using Windows systems for them, listen i am not saying that Russia should produce everything locally, but not being able to produce your own computer equipment indigenously would in the near future lead to the countries demise.

    Overall i hope Russia doesn't miss the train this time as we begin transitioning from digital to quantum computing.

    Depends on where you are getting your information from.  Which toughbooks and what branches of army?  MSMS is a military OS (which looks like Windows OS but it is linux) as well, the toughbooks I have seen has been linked directly to the Israeli drones being produced in Russia.  Reason why you see it as abysmal, is probably because you do not pay enough attention or not looking hard enough.  One does not just create a new processor over night.  Oracle just released the M6 after years of development.  Big deal since that Oracle has not produced a processor in quite some time.  They have more finances than MCST.  MCST on the other hand has released the R-1000 and Elbrus 2C+ in the last couple of years.  This year we will see 4C+ and next year or two 8C+.

    what I find hilarious is that Fujitsu made a, top 500, super computer (HTC system) using their own SPARC processor, under the same version (v9) as what Elbrus produces in R line.  Problem is, focus has shifted from RISC to CISC and as much as that can be good for long run, it has stunted their development of the RISC chip, which is quite important in its own.  Fujitsu actually uses Russia's NeuroMatrix core in their ARM processor.  Quite impressive technology actually.  Problem they have is that lack of funding so development is taking longer, and well, Angsterm isnt ready for high rate production of lower topology processors.  It was only last year or two that the Ministry of Industry and trade has wanted a new processor and only now funding is finding its way.  Khathi over at MP.net mentioned that he tried out the MCST/Kraftway Monocube and was quite impressed.

    On the news of Microprocessor technology:

    FreeRTOS operating system successfully ported to the processor P1 MULTICLET
    Microprocessors with multicellular architecture capable of supporting any operating system (Linux, Windows, Android, etc.).
    The first step in porting the microprocessor MULTICLET P1 considered simpler OS, such as Contici (small, easy portability of real-time OS with a graphical interface protocol stack TSP / IP, web-browser and web-server), RTEMS (reliable RTOS POSIX compatible), VxWorks (OS, focused on the use of embedded computers, working in hard real-time) and FreeRTOS.
    As the first OS for Multiclet was selected FreeRTOS - multi-tasking real-time OS for embedded systems.
    During the porting tools used only of "Multiclet" which can be downloaded from the company on the technical documentation and software:  http://multiclet.com/inde...pport/technical-documents .
    Source code of the operating system FreeRTOS version 7.5.3, as well as a brief documentation on its use is available at:

    Driverless rock haulers to become Russia’s reality by 2017—Acad. Trubetskoi
    Robotized mining machinery will become a Russian reality in 2017 already, claimed Kliment Trubetskoi, a Russian academician and the mastermind behind the Smart Quarry project. The Skolkovo Foundation website quoted him as saying that last week at a ceremony, receiving the Demidov Prize, one of Russia’s most respected awards in R&D and industry.

    The Smart Quarry project calls for the full automation and robotization of Russia’s mining sector.

    The effort was supported in the summer of 2013 with a $600,000+ grant from the Skolkovo Foundation. The recipient of the grant was VIST Mining Technology, a resident of Skolkovo’s IT cluster developing Mr. Trubetskoi’s idea into an actual business project.

    According to Dmitry Klebanov, VIST’s director for development, the company added to the grant its own funds to finance the further development of its IT-enabled driverless rock haulers and remotely controlled handling machinery for open-cast mines.

    In early May 2013, the company announced the completion of a series of successful testing of VIST’s first self-contained BelAZ truck robot.

    VIST’s R&D plans include the development and testing of the beta version of its special software. The Skolkovo resident is also expected to continue the development of methodology and special software for the servicing of self-contained machinery and the creation of mathematical algorithms for automating an excavator and boring rig’s operation.

    Longer-term plans include partnerships in developing safety rules for companies running self-contained machinery in mining.

    If this happens, I can imagine Russia becoming a major exporter of its heavy industrial equipment like mining. Already, it is growing. This will give it an edge.

    IT Village envisioned in Volga region
    The Penza regional government in the mid-Volga area is expecting to launch by this coming September what the administration refers to as “IT Village,” Russian news agency RIA Novosti reported, citing Governor Vasily Bochkaryov of Penza.

    The IT Village has been announced as an advanced information technology college for senior high school students to open on the premises of the region’s boarding school-lyceum for gifted children. As the project unfolds, the future college will have both IT and biotechnology to focus on, Governor Bochkaryov thinks.

    “We may get a plus to our image by both helping kids develop their talent and promoting software products to be used in our construction, industries, and agriculture,” he said.

    According to the governor, the IT Village project will encourage the setup of small innovation companies. Longer-term plans are to admit gifted children from other regions to the college as well.

    Understandable that many regions are going to jump on the IT field as it is one of the fastest growing fields in Russia, making them third in the world for IT development. This will further boost the field.

    New use of wind and sun in Siberia: outdoor mobile phone charger unveiled
    Scientists in Irkutsk, in Siberia, have come up with a device that enables people to charge their cell phones and other mobile gadgets when walking on the city streets, the Skolkovo Foundation website reported.

    The device called AeroGreen has been developed at a local company, Aeroenergotech, and Yuri Kriulin, one of the alumni of Irkutsk State Technical University (ISTU) is reported to have been the key inspirer behind the effort.

    It is a wind-solar unit capable of collecting solar and wind energy and transmitting it by wire into mobile phones, tablets, or laptops. Power in your phone is off suddenly, but you need to make an urgent call? The AeroGreen is expected to help you within minutes, and you won’t have to pay for that, the developer claims.

    Pretty interesting stuff.

    New boson laser developed in St. Petersburg
    A team of researchers at St. Petersburg State University (SPSU) has developed what is believed to be an advanced new laser, Popnano.ru reported.

    It is said to be what’s called a boson cascade laser, developed at SPSU’s optics laboratory led by Alexey Kavokin.

    The laser is expected to have a broad range of applications. For example, it could be used to help treat skin cancer or guard areas against robbers or terrorists.

    Government fund RVC supports tech entrepreneurship in West Urals
    The RVC Infrafund has teamed up with a group of yet-undisclosed private investors to jointly finance the setup of the Digital Port Tech Entrepreneurship Center in the city of Perm in the West Urals, East-West Digital News, the first all English-language online resource dedicated to Russian digital industries, reported earlier this week, citing the official RVC website.

    The 2000-sq. meter facility is expected to offer young local innovative teams and startups both office space and a range of services to support the development of high tech businesses, such as IT outsourcing, training programs in technology entrepreneurship, marketing support, IP protection advice, search for investors, bookkeeping, and HR assistance, among others.

    Yakutia designs ‘black cube’ for Far East high-tech surge
    Authorities in the Republic of Sakha, a large region in Russia’s Far East also known as Yakutia, have approved an architectural design for the area’s first IT Park, a construction project initially announced a year ago with a 2015 deadline. The project will take the form of a large black 12-story cube with a winter garden, East-West Digital News, the first all English-language online resource dedicated to Russian digital industries, reported last week, citing a source in the Sakha Government.

    Now slated for completion in early 2016, the park will be located in Yakutsk, the region’s capital, and is expected to deplete regional coffers by an estimated $23m.

    Scientists have found ways to reduce wear and tear by friction

    The seminar was held in tribology NPP "Respirator"

    Bezysnosnosti effect in friction was devoted to scientific workshop held recently in NPP "Respirator" the Holding "Air Technologies" .

    In Orekhovo-on research and production enterprise (SME) "Respirator", was Interregional Scientific and Practical Seminar "The results of the implementation effect bezyznosnosti in metalworking processes and exploitation." According to the newspaper the scientific community "Search" , participated in the forum was not only tribological scientists, teachers of universities and colleges, but also school teachers, representatives of industry, the transport sector and even the leaders of the local utilities.

    Such major scientific events should be held more frequently stressed participants. Combining science, industry, educational institutions and individual customers on the ground - a sign of the time. A company like NPP "Respirator", should be the basis of innovative development of the industry. For they are connected scientific complex and high-tech production base for the training of workers, engineers and scientists.

    The seminar was attended by eminent scholar, a classic national tribology - Academician of the Russian Academy of Engineering Dmitri Garkunov. In the 50s of the last century, he made a number of fundamental scientific discoveries, including the effect described bezyznosnosti in friction and wear of metals hydrogen phenomenon. Inventions Dmitry Nikolayevich widely acquisition in aviation and chemical industry, light and heavy engineering, agriculture.

    For outstanding achievements in the field of tribology Dmitry Garkunov was awarded the Government of the Russian Federation (2002), Prize of the President of the Russian Federation (2003), the Gold Medal of the Institute of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), as well as the largest award in the world on Tribology - Gold Medal of the British tribological Trust (2006).

    In studies initiated Dmitry Garkunovym, has continued. Employees NPP "Respirator" actively developing theme stated professor. At the seminar, young scientists - Head assembly plant NPP "Respirator" M. Zinin, deputy chief technologist and engineer E. Sergeev S. Gavrilov - told, in particular, the effect of technological implementation bezyznosnosti methods of plastic deformation and the combined holes.

    Dmitry Garkunova opening "effect bezyznosnosti" and "hydrogen wear" became the scientific basis for a new strategic direction in the science of friction - "Tribology based on self-organization." The presentation of this theme was also held during the seminar in NPP "Respirator".

    In addition, Professor D. Garkunov, E. and V. Melnikov Babel told the audience about the benefits of using metalplacking lubricant compositions. Test motor oils with this additive held in Norway (on trucks) and Germany (passenger). They showed that by using these compositions for consumption by reducing friction loss is reduced to 23%.

    Machinery work without wear capable beneficial effect on the ecology of the planet. Indeed, thanks to prolong their life (due to friction bezyznosnogo) can significantly reduce the amount of smelting iron and steel to replace worn-out equipment and machinery.

    In conclusion, the participants noted that the section on bezyznosnogo friction and hydrogen wear, should be included in the physics course. Unless schools, the secondary vocational schools and universities - is necessary.  

    TRIBOLOGY  - the branch of physics dealing with the research and a description of the contact interaction deformable solids during their relative movement. Area of tribology are the processes of friction, wear and lubrication. Tribology science is divided into several sections: tribometer, Tribotechnics, tribohimiya, tribofizika and tribomehanika.

    SPE "RESPIRATOR" is a developer and manufacturer of serial oxygen-respiratory equipment. Company for many years a leader in the development and production of equipment needed for aviation, navy, emergency and health services. In 2009 SPE "Respirator" became part of the holding "Aviation".

    Western and U.S sanctions starting to hurt Russian Satellite cluster development.


    Western sanctions could adversely affect the space industry of Russia - Rogozin
    04.04.2014 17:28:11
          Novosibirsk. April 4. Interfax-AVN - Russian space industry is heavily dependent on foreign supplies of radiation-resistant
    electronic-component base,
    said Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, at a meeting with students in Novosibirsk on Friday.
          "Any spacecraft, and we have hundreds of them - navigation system, cartography , communications, radiation sensing
    and the list goes on. Spacecraft - is 90% electronic-component base, ECB, and radiation-resistant. Our glorious bureaucrats
    in the industry managed, although funding for the last 10 years has been increased 100 times, keep the same proportion
    , depending on the ECB Western supplies, "- said Deputy Prime Minister.
          As a result, Rogozin said, in case of prohibition of supply questioned Russian space programs, including in the defense sector.

          unspoken second type of sanctions, said D. Rogozin, may be associated with limited supplies of machine equipment
    though its own production machines in Russia is almost gone.
          Rogozin said that instead of direct purchase was necessary to engage in the localization of production in Russia, or,
    in any case, provide them with their own software.
          "Otherwise, there will be" bookmark "which will reset the information that is prepared on these machines via satellite.
    All the information will go to Western intelligence services, "- he said.        *** / Hedgehog th en le

    Russia opts for political influence ignoring immense economic costs


    Russia shelves economics for power play
    Western sanctions over the Crimea crisis are set to worsen Russia's economic downturn.
    But ignoring economic concerns in favor of preserving political power will soon cease to be a viable strategy for Moscow.

    If the West stops selling high-tech electronics for the space industry to Russia, then Russia should deny them a high-tech service too - launches for satellites, as well as men & material to the ISS.

    Russia could also refuse to sell the US the rocket motors they are using for their new rockets to go into space in 2020 and beyond and take them to mar etc.

    I think the best target would of course be the NATO supply route through Russia they are using to withdraw from Afghanistan through... easy target really.

    The USA and NASA have plenty of alternatives to the RD-180 rocket motor for any future space exploration plans, although in the short term they probably are dependent on the supply of Russian made motors. The USA is probably rethinking its dependency on a politcally unreliable partner as a source of such a critical technology.

    1.) The unreliable partner is the U.S. in this instance, it's the same partner that banned China from joining the ISS which most astro-physicists condemned that action as a politically motivated act of arm-twisting, due to the fact that the Pentagon feared the rising power and prestige of China...even the NASA scientists themselves opposed the decision.

    2.) If the U.S. could easily replace Russian rocket engines then why is it taking themselves so long to do it? Theoretically they can with private industries by 2017, but those same private industries are the same ones involved with unreliable and costly military R&D projects. Those include hangar queens like the F-22, B-2 Spirit, and now potentially the F-35, the same people who struggle to produce a long range SAM on par with the out of production S-300 SAM. The RD-180 rocket engines have a proven reliable track record that spans multiple decades, and if the U.S. aerospace industries struggle so much with the F-35 program then what makes you think they can easily replace proven Russian rocket technology?

    Russia is not the only source of titanium ore around the world. But a Russian company is the world's largest producer of titanium metal for final production, e.g. supply to the aerospace industry.

    I thinkone reason that Russia is playing cool right now .. to the west .. is..
    ..
    ..Russia  wants its defence industry to keep Humming and rolling like before..
    Western sanctions on latest electronics might delay the russian projects by few years..
    Lot of companies like iss reshetnev, Progress(Persona series), Energia (latest thermal imaging Geo stat sats) are dependant upon U.S based electronics ..

    In that sense Putin is good that he has stopped making advances towards Ukrainians.. until E.U cools its head..

    But if Russia leads a titanium boycott against the U.S., then titanium would sky rocket in price by commodity speculators, and 2 of the top titanium producers in the world are close allies with Russia (China, Kazakhstan).

    2.) If the U.S. could easily replace Russian rocket engines then why is it taking themselves so long to do it? Theoretically they can with
    private industries by 2017, but those same private industries are the same ones involved with unreliable and costly military R&D projects.

    Dead on target.

    U.S can immediately create a saturn kind of launch vehicle in 5 days.. but only in dreams. Smile 
    U.S thinks that Rockets fly with semiconductor  and microchips.

    F-35 overloaded with electronics ..no one imagines software developments taking decades to develop..

    U.S thinks that its semiconductor global giants Intel, Arm, Cisco, Nvdia will develop rockets and fuel technology..
    This is hilarious..

    U.S could not develop a single serial produced supersonic missile.

    U.S tried to develop HYpersonic projects X-37, X-43 ..all non sense.

    When U.S air force and navy realized they could not develop a single sustainer for hypersonic vehicle..

    ...Then they gave the go ahead to Sandia labs (Nuke device maker   to develop hypersonic missile.. Shocked )

    Sandia labs began  testing a 50 year old NAVAL ICBM (Intermediate range) and they renamed that Ballistic missile as advanced hypersonic vehicle..

    It proves that U.S is not capable to produce "anything" in rocket and missile technology.

    It only makes a show of its financial power  and some industrial giants and tries to act as though its the only super power in the world.


    But putting things in perspective ..
    U.S has decisive lead in semiconductor and processor fabrication so Russia must find alternatives for that.

    Semiconductor and pharmaceutical are the only two industries where USA has a big lead of strategic sense (not commercial, because commercial is an other animal altogether).
    A very big one. In semiconductor industry though, they are pretty much frozen for 6-7 years already, it's just that nobody else filled that gap just YET.
    Anyway technology is not the problem, nor brain drain where USA finally stopped having this loads of brilliant minds coming in. So no danger for losing schedule, to the contrary USA relies more upon the cooperation of others.

    The HUGE AND INSOLVENT (so far) problem of Russia is the commercialization of their know how. They are terrible in this aspect and they stuck to communist patterns which don't help at all.

    Russia is not the only source of titanium ore around the world. But a Russian company is the world's largest producer of titanium metal for final production, e.g. supply to the aerospace industry.

    But if Russia leads a titanium boycott against the U.S., then titanium would sky rocket in price by commodity speculators, and 2 of the top titanium producers in the world are close allies with Russia (China, Kazakhstan).

    China is no closer an ally of Russia than it is to the USA.

    Yeah they just buy tons of armaments and military tech from Russia, and oppose NATO intervention in Syria (even sent a warship to prevent an attack) and in Iran just like Russia, and China opposes the NATO ABM bases encircling Russia. Here's China sending a warship to prevent an attack on Syria:

    The people who are advocating China as an enemy to Russia is NATO for the purpose of destroying both:

    But in reality Russian and Chinese military officials have cooperating jointly in air-defense:

    Who you think paid for all those armaments send in Syria? The anemic Russian economy or the heavily sanctioned Iranian? It is MUCH deeper than they let it out publicly.

    Well, that's the reason why they are stuck and China gains the vital know how. Slowly but surely they gaining the dominant position. I hear that Russia also taking enough steps to close the strategic gap. I don't know whether this is true I hope it is. Anyway repeat agian. Commercialization is what kills Russia. They can't create a semi decent car for f*** shake!

    Edit: I mean you don't need to be Einstein here. Moore's law is now something like 60 months and going up! It's just a matter of time for an Eastern competitor to strike in. And Western companies have an Achilles heal. They can't afford a major loss of revenue. If they get uncompetitive it's over.

    The USA and NASA have plenty of alternatives to the RD-180 rocket motor for any future space exploration plans, although in the short term they probably are dependent on the supply of Russian made motors. The USA is probably rethinking its dependency on a politcally unreliable partner as a source of such a critical technology.

    The main problem is that those plenty of alternatives are rather primitive like rebuilding the rockets used on the Saturn 5, or developing new models that wont be more powerful than the russian engines... but they will cost more. Buying Russian engines in the first place was not charity.

    It was the US that created the entire situation... their support for an illegal coup against a democratically elected leader shows they are full of number twos and their denial of the referendum in the Crimea just shows them to be the hypocrites they are.

    It is the US that uses it economic power as a weapon and is therefore the unreliable partner.

    There are three types of cooperation possible between the US and Russia... cooperation where the US benefits like a transport route to their war in Afghanistan but Russia really gets nothing out of it, Cooperation where both benefit like the sale of Russian rocket motors to NASA at prices they can't make similar engines themselves at. The third type of cooperation would be where Russia benefits at the US's expense, but there aren't any examples of that...

    Lot of companies like iss reshetnev, Progress(Persona series), Energia (latest thermal imaging Geo stat sats) are dependant upon U.S based electronics ..

    Hahahaha... you're being funny right?

    The US wont sell Russia its latest thermal imaging stuff... which really doesn't matter because they are working with France and Thales and producing thermal sights every bit as good as US models.

    In that sense Putin is good that he has stopped making advances towards Ukrainians.. until E.U cools its head..

    What advances against Ukraine?

    the West interfered in the Ukraine with the result of a coup that overthrew the legitimate government. As a result a Russian autonomous area called the Crimea has decided to join the Russia Federation, which Putin accepted. Blaming Putin for their own Machiavellian plan backfiring is funny.

    I do agree that Putin needs to keep his actions measured so the idiots in Kiev don't overreact and do a Sakashvili or something equally as stupid. If things remain calm after about 8-12 months things will have settled and this will largely be forgotten.

    China is no closer an ally of Russia than it is to the USA.

    Several political agreements in place that say different, but from a mere commercial point of view why on earth would they spend money buying titanium from Russia unless the alternatives were more expensive or lower quality... or both.

    F-35 is already over budget... a price hike or even delay in a material used widely in its structure will not be good...

    The HUGE AND INSOLVENT (so far) problem of Russia is the commercialization of their know how. They are terrible in this aspect and they stuck to communist patterns which don't help at all.

    An Aspect of the Skolkovo technology park is commercialisation of technology...

    They can't create a semi decent car for f*** shake!

    Neither can the US or UK for that matter.

    I have a first grade opinion about Skolkovo and I am not at all positive about what I have seen, at least for the time been.

    You are joking, right? I mean you can't be serious!
