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.
the most critical technologies should be developed within the country."

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.

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.
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:

Suggestions, comments, tests propose to discuss on the Forum:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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)
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.
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.
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.
