    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".

    In Irkutsk, you will drive your car on nanoroads
    The authorities in Irkutsk, in Siberia, have decided to start repairing local street roads using what’s known as ‘nanoasphalt,’ a new product tested last year on one of the city streets, the Baikal office of Moskovsky Komsomolets reported.

    According to Irkutsk Mayor Viktor Kondrashov, the move will add another 8% to the overall cost of new asphalt.

    “The local asphalt factory is beginning this year to use all necessary additives to produce nanoasphalt which we will be using from now on to repair large sections of roads. It will cost us more, but we have consciously decided to do so to increase the quality of our roads,” the mayor said.

    Last fall, a small 400 square meter testing area on Voronezhskaya Street was repaired using the new asphalt-bitumen coating based on nanomodified components. The modified asphalt has reportedly proven stronger and more durable than conventional one. The softening temperature for its binder agent is plus 60 degrees Celsius, and the product withstands freezing temperatures of as low as minus 32 degrees Celsius, which is expected to triple the service life of such a road carpet.

    The product has been developed by local Nanotechcenter. To make this new asphalt the company first makes polymers using aluminum and silicon production waste.

    According to Nanotechcenter, the technology calls for the use of the developer’s proprietary polymer- and nanomodifier-based mineral compound which is added to asphalt-concrete. Polymers are added into what’s known as dolomite flour, a mandatory ingredient of asphalt-concrete, rather than into bitumen itself. In the additive, a special composition is used which includes carbon nanoparticles. Such molecular compounds are believed to possess unique properties.

    Center for Vibration Diagnostics opened in Tomsk, first in Russia’s Asian part
    A new Center for Vibration Diagnostics and Balancing, Russia’s first east of the Ural Mountains, has opened at Tomsk Polytechnic University in Siberia, TPU announced in its press release.

    In addition to training students and re-training industrial staff the Center is expected to help introduce counter-emergency systems to industry.

    The $700+K Center is a joint effort by TPU, Diamech 2000, a sizable local equipment maker, and Russia’s Bortnik Fund. According to Sergei Bukhanchenko of TPU’s Research Institute of Cybernetics, the Center will “exclusively” run equipment developed in Russia and “second to no foreign analogs in quality.”

    “All oil refineries, energy facilities or aircraft-building factories face problems with vibration diagnostics and balancing. Russia needs such centers… as vibration has an ominous destructive power,” Mr. Bukhanchenko emphasized.

    Vibration analyzers and balancing systems are necessary for timely detection of flaws in turbines and other mechanical engineering parts, as well as for the testing of new parts.

    The TPU scientist pointed out that “Siberian hydropower stations have already expressed interest in the new Center.” He believes that “had the Sayano-Shushenskay Dam been able to use the services of such a Center, the tragedy could perhaps have been avoided.” (He referred to the catastrophic accident the hydropower plant on the River Yenisei in Siberia suffered on August 17, 2009; the emergency took 75 lives and left a lot of equipment damaged; experts later found in their formal report that “the accident was primarily caused by vibrations of turbine #2 which led to fatigue damage of the mountings of the turbine, including its cover”—Editor’s note)

    Nizhny Novgorod hopes to open first IT Park in November
    The Nizhny Novgorod Region in the mid-Volga area plans to launch the inaugural stage of its first IT park this November, East-West Digital News, the first all English-language online resource dedicated to Russian digital industries, reported earlier this week, citing an announcement from the Russian Ministry of Telecom and Mass Communications that followed a top-level on-site inspection by the Ministry in late March.

    The long-awaited $430m Ankudinovka IT Park is one of seven high-technology technoparks around the country mandated by a federal Cabinet decision in 2006.

    The government program under which the parks have been funded expires later this year, and the selected regions and technopark residents they have attracted are expected to take over the projects themselves.

    The Nizhny park will focus on developing information and telecommunications technologies; medical and biomedical technologies, including innovative cardiovascular disease and cancer therapies, obstetrics equipment, etc.; and technologies for instrument making, mechanical engineering, electronics, chemistry, and new materials.

    According to the Nizhny Novgorod Regional Ministry of Investment Policy, Ankudinovka will become home to as many as 100 resident companies that are expected to create about 1,750 new local jobs as they develop. Regional officials hope innovative solutions that will make some high-tech imports redundant will account for up to 65% of the residents’ overall output. There will be enough social infrastructure in the park’s territory to ensure comfortable work and leisure, the local officials said.

    Of the total investment required to kick-start the effort, only 3.1 billion rubles (about $88.5 million) will have come from federal and regional coffers, the regional Ministry said. The lion’s share is expected to be contributed by yet-unspecified private investors. The investment is projected to pay off in six years.

    The ambitious Nizhny project broke ground in 2012 – much later than most of the other regions picked for the program – and already has a history of delays. In March 2013 the Russian business daily Kommersant reported that federal auditors had expressed “concern over the efficacy of the use of government money in Nizhny’s Ankudinovka.” Last summer government plans were to launch the technopark’s first business center “by the spring of 2014.” In September word came from Ankudinovka’s top management that the IT park would open even earlier – in December 2013. But in October CNews.ru broke the news that the $88m spent so far had brought negligible results and further funding had been “suspended.”

    As of today, the only fully built facility in the Ankudinovka Technopark is a data center belonging to Sberbank, the national savings bank.

    Russia’s A-bomb nest may become major cyber security R&D hub
    Sarov, one of Russia’s largest centers for nuclear research, is heading for diversification. The federal government is considering drawing upon the solid scientific ecosystem of the city, 460km east of Moscow, to create a major hub for IT and cyber security research.

    A leading nuclear weapons design area in the USSR which did not appear on unclassified maps and was known only as “Arzamas-16” between 1946 and 1991, Sarov is now a city of 90,000 and home to a nuclear research entity known in the West as VNIIEF. Its achievements in the IT field were acknowledged by Nikolai Nikiforov, the minister of Telecom and Mass Communications, during a visit to the city in late March, reported East-West Digital News, the first all English-language online resource dedicated to Russian digital industries.

    The foundation for Sarov’s renewed and enhanced IT capability will be the Sarov Technopark, which was set up to commercialize VNIIEF’s civilian research products through the creation of a number of multi-sector engineering companies.

    This active R&D facility has developed competencies in cyber security; supercomputing and big data; automation and hardware-software complex development; laser technologies; alternative energy; new materials; new medical equipment; and power engineering.

    Minister Nikiforov hopes to make VNIIEF and the technopark a hub capable of sending commercially viable solutions to customers around the world.

    New polymer-reinforcing technique developed in Kazan
    Scientists at Kazan Volga Federal University in Russia’s Tatarstan have developed a new method of making carbon nanotubes and polyolefin based compositions that help boost the strength and other physical-mechanical properties of polymers, the university announced in its press release.

    As far back as last fall the developers from the university’s Nonorganic Chemistry Chair led by Rustem Amirov obtained a Russian patent for their invention.

    Such polymers will be very useful in projects, for which utilizing metals with excessive strength properties is a disadvantage—for example, when trying to reduce the weight of parts for aircraft, motor vehicles or rockets. Such automotive giants as BMW and Renault are already considering taking advantage of the new polymer materials, the Kazan university emphasized.

    The Tatarstan developers set an example, in which a car manufacturer added polymers to steel and aluminum when making the body of one of its experimental cars. The move is said to have enabled a 60% weight reduction while keeping a maximum possible strength.

    Nobody has approached the Kazan scientists for talks over possible license purchase so far. “The initiative should come from a manufacturer, not from scientists,” Mr. Amirov believes.

    I have not looked into Semicon too much and unfortunately, I do not know who has an exhibition there. Mikron is listed as one of them from what I can tell, and they specialized in development of RFID And DSP's, which are obviously important for military in real time information data processing compared to the conventional microprocessor.

    From the video, looks like a Russian company 3D printer, which is obviously important for fast development of spare parts that are not quite vital for structural strength.

    I guess I will have something to look into. If I had $$$, I would make attempts to attend such conventions.

    Russia’s Androids to Surpass Western Alternatives – Deputy Prime Minister

    NOVOSIBIRSK, June 6 (RIA Novosti) – The Russian Foundation for Advanced Research Projects is creating a universal android robotic platform that could surpass the western alternative, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said Friday.

    “We will have to concentrate all our efforts and best minds to create robotic production models that will surpass their western alternatives in key characteristics,” Rogozin stressed during the Tekhnoprom forum in Novosibirsk, Russia today.

    The deputy prime minister withheld further details about the project, adding only that any pessimistic speculation about Russia’s loss of leadership in the sphere of robotics are absolutely groundless. “Since Soviet times Russia has laid the groundwork in this sphere,” Rogozin said.

    Earlier, a representative of Android Technics, a Russian enterprise dedicated to the development and production of anthropomorphic techniques, unveiled a project planned jointly with the Foundation for Advanced Research Projects on the creation of an android robot.

    The robot would be able to work in hazardous environments, including a nuclear site, take samples of polluted air and soil, test them and transfer data over a distance of five kilometers.

    Operator will be able to control the robots through a “virtual reality” helmet that ensures stereoscopic vision and data output concerning the condition of the robot or environment, the designer specified.

    The first test run of the android is scheduled for 2015-2016 at Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations test sites.

    The Russian Foundation for Advanced Research Projects was founded with the direct involvement of Dmitry Rogozin, who oversees the country’s military industry, as an alternative to the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.

    Russia to Allocate $26 Billion to Atomic Energy Complex Development

    MOSCOW, June 9 (RIA Novosti) – The Russian government has approved a state program on the development of an atomic energy complex by 2020, with total funding of about 900 billion rubles or $26 billion, a decree on Russia’s official legal information website indicates.
    Russia’s state-owned nuclear energy corporation, Rosatom, has been assigned the project, according to the decree. Among the main goals of the program are an increase in nuclear energy production of at least 184.3 million kWh, a surge in labor efficiency by 58.2 percent and 14.9 percent growth in the complex’ sales.
    The program is also expected to generate about 100 patents in foreign countries from research and development and intellectual activity in the sphere of science and technology. The project also includes a plan to boost income from the atomic energy complex in foreign markets for nuclear technology and services by 53 percent.

    Five interesting companies from Russia's Skolkovo Startup Village

    At the Skolkovo Startup Village near Moscow last week entrepreneurs competed for the chance to win 900,000 rubles to help expand their fledgling companies and set them on their way to fame and fortune.

    Startups pitched ideas on a range of topics including healthcare, the environment, energy, communications, retail and consumer products.

    Of most relevance to our particular niche was the ‘digital technologies for mass market’ session, which threw up some interesting ideas and some that I can’t ever see catching on.

    The latter included an attachable mobile keyboard called Octodon and a new smartphone flash attachment that apparently improves your selfies.

    If you want to find out more about the Skolkovo project then check out my article on Russia’s plan to turn it into the new Silicon Valley, or read on for details of some of the more interesting companies on show at the Startup Village...

    Dressformer

    The people behind Dressformer aim to take on the likes of Virtusize by providing an effective method for online shoppers to test whether clothes are likely to fit them before making a purchase.

    It works by building a 3D avatar which the clothes are then superimposed on to based on the user's measurements. It also syncs with Facebook so people can get their friend's fashion opinions.

    Several retailers are already using the system which has reduced returns by 10% and also helped to increase cross-sales. One US retailer saw a 20% lift in cross-sales as Dressformer was able to recommend clothes based on how they would fit the customer.

    Bike Defend


    As a cyclist this security app struck me as an interesting idea, though one that might be difficult to implement.

    Bike Defend uses a tracking device and mobile app to notify owners when someone has stolen their bike and allow them to track down the thief.

    The trackers are built into bike lights, so the thief doesn’t know they’ve been rumbled, and an alarm in the app gives owners a chance to try and foil the crook. However it would take a lot of bravery to chase down and confront a thief.

    Fingo

    Fingo is an augmented reality app that enables people to see what furniture and interior design styles would look like inside their home.

    It works on a SaaS model, so retailers can fit the technology into their own apps or buy a white label version.

    The idea is that a brand like John Lewis could install Fingo within an iPad app and allow users to virtually try out different products in their home before making a purchase.

    However, Ikea has already trialled its own version of this technology and personally I’m still to be convinced of the value of AR.

    RoadAR

    RoadAR is a navigation app that assists drivers by giving them various warnings, alerts and information.

    For example, it’s able to warn people about changes in the speed limit or if there are traffic lights coming up. The app also acts as a Sat Nav by giving drivers directions for their current journey.

    It’s a fairly simple idea and I’d be surprised if it hasn’t been done before, but RoadAR has apparently attracted 25,000 users within two months so might make a decent investment if you’re an angel with a chunk of cash to spare.

    Exhibeacon

    I’m a fan of this idea as it struck me as something that would be useful at Econsultancy’s own conferences and events.

    Exhibeacon uses various beacons and wearable bangles that interact with one another so organisers can track attendees' behaviour at their events.

    Users can then access reports and analytics to see whether their conference was a success.

    Exhibeacon can also be used to target people with advertising and promotions. The owners are looking for investment so they can enter the market in 2015.

    Unfortunately it doesn't seem to have a website at the moment, so I'm not sure how you can get in touch...

    Russia to activate "reactor of the future" at Beloyarskaya NPP

    A chain reaction is expected to be launched Thursday in a new-generation reactor at Russia's Beloyarskaya nuclear power plant.

    The plant's specialists will initiate a controlled chain reaction in the BN-800 reactor of the plant's fourth unit, Rosatom Deputy General Director Alexander Lokshin said at a conference on Thursday, marking 60 years of nuclear power engineering.

    The BN-800 or sodium-cooled fast-neutron reactor, dubbed a "reactor of the future", with an 880 megawatt power generating capacity uses the closed nuclear fuel cycle technology that minimizes nuclear waste and significantly widens the range of elements that can be used as nuclear fuel.

    Russia holds the lead in this technology.

    Russia’s first 300mm wafer size fab in Moscow certified

    Crocus Nano Electronics (CNE), the joint venture founded in 2011 by France’s Crocus Technology and Rusnano, Russia’s state-owned nanotech giant, has successfully completed the certification of its cleanroom in Moscow according to ISO 14644–1 requirements, the Rusnano website announced.

    The cleanroom is certified as the state-of-the-art class 1,000 (ISO 6) in the production area. Now all set to accommodate cutting-edge equipment, the cleanroom is the heart of the first 300mm wafer fab in Russia, which will be capable of processing up to 1,000 wafers per week.

    “Equipment hook-up is expected to occur in the next quarter and we expect to begin process qualification of our fab equipment in September, 2014,” said Mark Dydyk, the CEO of CNE.

    Crocus Technology is a leading developer of magnetically enhanced semiconductor technologies.

    Very good news!

    Although, could be hampered if France tried to. But I doubt it. If in case they do, they can obtain equipment elsewhere.

    Samara team to develop artificial intelligence for industry
    Samara State Aerospace University (SSAU) in the mid-Volga area expects to receive more than a million dollars from the Russian government to cover R&D aimed at developing industrial smart systems to control a company’s resources on a real-time basis, the university announced.

    The team behind the new project includes researchers from a university laboratory specifically set up to back the effort, and engineers from Reasonable Solutions, a local company.

    “The R&D is expected to bring about new artificial intelligence technology called “multi-agent platform for adaptive planning.” It will control industrial resources on a real-time basis with minimal human involvement, thus helping cut overall costs,” SSAU emphasized in its press release.

    The endeavor, estimated to cost a total of $2.3m, is kicking off next month, and the project owners are hoping to complete it within three years.

    Symantec and Skolkovo pen partnership agreement
    Earlier this week Skolkovo, the international tech hub under completion on the outskirts of Moscow, and California-based digital security solutions firm Symantec signed a deal for joint cooperation across a number of segments, reported East-West Digital News, the first all English-language online resource dedicated to Russian digital industries.

    Cooperation will range from educational projects to cooperation in software development. In particular, Symantec will provide mentoring support and advice to companies participating at Skolkovo by helping them create innovative IT products.

    “The development of an ecosystem that offers Skolkovo participants close contact with industry leading companies, scientific and technical experts, engineers and businessmen, access to sources, and the exchange of experience with colleagues from Russia, Europe, Asia and the USA is one of the most important activities of the Foundation,” Igor Bogachev, Executive Director of the IT Cluster at Skolkovo, stated in a press release.

    In turn, Skolkovo will provide Symantec access to technologies and products from Russian innovators, offering the opportunity to use the resources of the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Skolkovo Tech).

    Cooperation plans also include the organization of joint activities for the development of business contacts between associated partners and the involvement of new organizations at Skolkovo. The two entities are already involved in overseeing a competition of innovative projects in the field of information security, called iSecurity.

    MSFT/IBM Boomerang'd As Russia Retaliates, Prepares To Cease Imports Of US IT
    With the German economy already suffering (and AMD cutting its outlook), it appears Putin's promise to ensure Obama's action will see retaliation are starting to weigh as much on the rest of the world as Western media suggest US sanctions are weighing on Russia. This time, after blocking foreign cars and Intel/AMD chips, Bloomberg reports the State Duma, Russia’s lower house of parliament, is drafting a bill to require government agencies and state-run enterprises to give preference to local providers of software and hardware. For some context, IBM, Microsoft, HP, Cisco, Oracle, and Germany’s SAP SE had combined revenue of 285 billion rubles ($8.1 billion) from Russia (with 77% coming from government and SOEs). “This all has to do with sanctions,” warned one Russian politician.

    Quite interesting turn of events. Will be good for MCST and Baikal electronics/Kraftway

    Russia to inject pension money into innovation
    The Russian government has unveiled plans to invest part of the Russians’ pension fund deposits in VC funds and also in securities and other financial instruments that high-tech companies have, reported the Russian business daily Vedomosti.

    Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has reportedly asked the Central Bank of Russia, the Ministry of Economic Development and the Ministry of Finance to put together details for investing pension money in high technologies by November 1. The government’s Expert Council is said to be considering allowing the use of both pension reserves and deposits to inject in high-tech sectors up to 1% of the total Pension Fund money.

    According to a recent Council report, Russia’s accumulative pension system had about $92bn in 2013—which means that innovation projects and venture firms may receive as much as a billion dollars in investments from Russia’s Pension Fund. It is an amount comparable to the entire volume of investment in the national venture market last year, estimated RVC, the government fund of funds for innovation.
