    The ignition chamber of the world's largest laser confinement fusion facility was completed.    Interesting, I have heard almost nothing
    about Russia working on laser confinement fusion and at this scale.

    It is our contribution to the ITER Tokamak being built in France.

    This has nothing to do with your French Fixation.

    Participation in these experiments will take scientists RFNC-VNIIEF and other enterprises of Rosatom state Corporation, as well as scientists at leading academic institutions of our country.At the moment, we are testing systems of the first module installation. At the end of 2019 will be held its launch. Commissioning of the first stage of the laser system is scheduled for 2022.

    First certified in Russia industrial 3D printer launched

    Νew Technologies and Innovation Development in Russia - Page 23 JvBrQR1

    The company "Laser systems" the first of the Russian manufacturers have received a Certificate of origin ST-1 and the conclusion of the Ministry of industry and trade on industrial production installation of additive selective laser melting on the territory of Russia.

    Implementation of the project to create an industrial 3D printer engaged in the cultivation of metal powders, were carried out on the territory of special economic zone "St. Petersburg" for 3 years. The volume of investments amounted to more than 200 million rubles.

    The company conducted the whole cycle of works from scientific and patent research to develop proprietary software and production batch.

    After receiving the necessary documents from the Ministry of industry Laser systems are preparing to enter into the first contracts for the supply of Russian enterprises. Among the industries where 3D printer can be claimed are highlighted in Avia - and engine-building, aerospace, vehicle engineering, robotics, medical, instrumentation.

    Installation of additive selective laser melting M250 allows you to grow from metal powders parts of complex shapes to a maximum size of 250×250×250 mm3, which are impossible to produce by conventional methods. In this process, available the use of metal powders from all manufacturers (foreign and Russian). While foreign counterparts, which are present on the Russian market, working in most cases only manufacturer's recommended foreign powders.

    For the first time in Russia on an industrial 3D printer for growing work simultaneously on two laser. This allows us to solve one of the main challenges is to significantly improve the performance of the technology. Thanks to the technical solutions implemented in the installation of M250, maintenance costs are reduced 10 times in comparison with analogues.

    Using the past to forecast the future is basically asking for it. There will come a time when things advance. All the people
    laughing off fusion are equivalent to people that think that there will be no 8.5 magnitude earthquake in Los Angeles because there
    hasn't been one for a long time.

    ITER is actually very likely to break even since it has the right size to overcome the plasma-wall parasitical leakage and contamination.
    The problem with all previous tokomaks has been their size. The absolute separation of the plasma from the wall is just too small and
    tungsten snow starts to grow from the wall into the plasma due to continuous high energy electron leakage. By increasing the size
    of the tokomak the absolute separation of the plasma from the wall increases. At the same time the volume of the plasma relative
    to its surface area increases. This enhances confinement.

    Was less than 150 years ago that human flight in fixed wing aircraft was also impossible...

    I remember reading about death rays as being purely science fiction... I mean it is just logical... any energy weapon powerful enough to kill an enemy some distance away will kill the person holding the weapon... of course concentrating and directing the destructive energy was the obvious solution... just like powered flight simply required a compact but powerful energy source...

    My understanding was that a fusion reactor is possible but it tends to use as much or more energy than it generates so is not really practical or useful yet...

    The problem has been plasma stability. Fusion needs to occur for a sufficient period of time to produce net power. But for all the small tokomak reactors
    the collapse of the plasma temperature due to wall losses combined with nonlinear MHD instabilities happens so fast that fusion does not really get a chance
    to produce much. The system requires fusion to maintain the plasma temperature. This bootstrapping problem has prevented any existing experimental
    tokomak reactor from producing net energy. All the energy goes into initial ignition, which then fizzles away and fails to sustain the plasma temperature and
    thus the fusion itself.

    It has to be admitted that ITER may still be too small. But there is a geometrical nonlinearity that will eventually make the system work and that is
    the shrinking surface area of the plasma adjacent to the reactor wall versus the volume of the plasma itself. As the radius of the tokomak increases,
    the volume increases as the cube while the surface area increases as the square of the radius. But I think that ITER will be the first tokomak reactor
    which overcomes the parasitical wall currents. Some custom design work on the magnetic field needs to be done to confine the plasma tighter. Even
    small changes become very important for large reactors since the absolute separation from the reactor wall is larger.

    Russia plans to invest billions in AI, remove all barriers for ‘tech pioneers’

    Russian laws must be amended to facilitate the development and use of artificial intelligence (AI), Vladimir Putin said. The Russian President had earlier asserted that AI will become the key to world dominance in the future.

    The solutions based on AI may be more expensive than traditional ones at the start, but “afterwards, they’ll provide for such a huge leap forward that all of the initial investments will be repaid,” Putin said, during a high-profile meeting on artificial intelligence in Moscow.

    If Russia wants to achieve this “it’s important to remove legal and administrative barriers for ‘technological pioneering’, but without forgetting about the security of the state, society and maintaining the rights of citizens.”

    Intellectual property in the AI sector must be thoroughly protected and conditions for patenting those technologies in Russia created, he told the ministers in attendance.

    Another important task will be the creation and legal regulation of a state-of-the-art infrastructure for storing and processing the data required for the development of artificial intelligence algorithms.

    “Special conditions” for private investments in AI programs must be provided in the country, Putin said. But he also agreed that development in the field should also be promoted through government contracts.

    The state must make sure that the introduction of artificial intelligence by Russian companies allows them to organically get hold of the market both in the domestically and internationally, he added.

    The federal project on artificial intelligence will be presented by the government until October at the latest. If approved, it’ll see 90 million rubles (around $1.4 billion) invested in AI during a six-year period.

    Before the meeting, the President was shown Russia’s latest developments in artificial intelligence. Cognitive Technologies group has already made a name for itself by producing software and sensors for driverless cars and locomotives. The company said that it had managed to reduce the price of its 4d imaging radars to just $100-a-piece and earned more than $220,000 after exhibiting in Detroit – that’s the sanctions war unleashed by Washington against Moscow.

    Putin has been exhibiting an increased interest in artificial intelligence in recent years, once telling students that “whoever becomes the leader in this sphere will become the ruler of the world.”

    He also said that further introduction of AI into the military may allow Russia to nullify the gap in defense spending with the US and achieve parity without joining the arms race and establishing numerous bases abroad.

    Russian gas turbine of high power GTD-110M completed the first phase of testing

    The Ministry of industry and trade of the Russian Federation expects completion of the tests of experimental-industrial model of domestic gas turbines with a great power GTD-110M in June 2019, the first phase of testing was completed, told RIA Novosti Deputy Minister Vasily Osmakov.

    "Long-term tests are successful, in two stages. The first phase of testing was completed and showed that the parameters of the turbine are achieved. Now the turbine is mounted in the cell Ivanovo PGU, is the second phase of testing, which should be completed by the end of June. Then we move on to serial production. While all goes to schedule," — said the Agency interlocutor.

    According to him, negotiations on the choice of cooperation with domestic enterprises for release of components for the GTD-110. When will all the preconditions to enter in the series, will only have to determine the model of financing the site where the production of added Osmakov.

    Not produced in Russia gas turbine of large capacity for power plants. Their development is under a joint venture of RUSNANO, Rostec (its structure NPO "Saturn") and "inter RAO UES", but they need improvement. In April 2018, sources Reuters reported that the Russian modified turbine GTD-110M collapsed to the test. Rostec announced the failure of the mechanism that moves the deadline for completion of works on the turbine.

    Beware, Reuters is engaged in information warfare against Russia. The reason that turbines are put into test chambers is that they can fail (e.g. a blade can rip off at
    very high RPMs). Reuters insinuates that in the precious west new gas turbines poof into existing without any testing and failure.

    http://johnhelmer.net/reuters-is-now-a-unit-of-us-info-war-command-reporters-and-investors-revolt/

    As with the marine gas turbines, Russia is on track to import substitute basically every substantial product.

    blame Ria Novosti for that.

    But its funny because they obviously replaced the broken piece and then got the test unit working. So full production should appear after June testing if everything works as intended.

    So it really throws the Reuters piece down the toilet since they initially figured it wouldn't be ready till 2020 when midpoint of 2019 is more correct as it seems.

    This is rather interesting new technology they are working on... still needs a bit of work to progress, but interesting anyway:

    Russian Researchers Invent Highly Efficient Magnetic Refrigerator

    Tech

    Russian engineers have designed a next-generation refrigerator cooled by magnetic metal instead of evaporating liquid, which improves energy efficiency by 30 to 40 percent, the NUST MISIS press service told RIA Novosti.

    "Researchers from the National University of Science and Technology MISIS and Tver State University have developed a new type of refrigerator based on a solid-state magnetic system that improves energy efficiency by 30 to 40 percent compared to gas compressors used in conventional refrigerators," the university said in a statement. The new design is based on the magnetocaloric effect in which a magnetic field changes the temperature of magnetic material.

    Senior research fellow at NUST MISIS, Dmitry Karpenkov, told RIA Novosti that the developers view as the main achievement the cascade effect in which gadolinium metal bars are placed on a special wheel that puts them in a magnetic field by spinning at a high speed.

    According to Karpenkov, this is a relatively young technology that is only about 20 years old. Still, Russian researchers were the first to implement the cascade principle. Existing devices are not designed to lower temperatures dramatically and can only maintain a certain temperature.

    The researcher also discussed plans for the future. The developers intend to continue working on the cascade principle in order to expand the temperature range that can be achieved by this refrigerator. So far its temperatures vary by 10 degrees, but this range could be expanded to 12 to 15 degrees.

    Karpenkov noted that the test unit's dimensions do not exceed 15 cm. It is believed that the main applications of this compact device will come in car air conditioners and microprocessor cooling systems.

    Russia's Yandex looks at ten-fold increase in driverless car fleet to speed up testing

    MOSCOW (Reuters) - Yandex, a Russian equivalent to Google, said it is considering expanding its fleet of self-driving cars to up to 1,000 within the next two years in order to speed up tests on the fledgling technology.

    Yandex hopes to start testing more than 100 of its self-driving cars on roads by the end of this year. It already has a fleet of 90 cars, 35 of which are being tested on Moscow’s roads with a Yandex engineer present.

    “We plan to further increase the fleet, by as much as even a thousand cars. We can produce the first thousand cars fairly quickly within one and half and two years,” Dmitry Polishchuk, head of Yandex’s self-driving car division, told Reuters in an interview last week.

    “This is needed to check changes quickly in the algorithms we are making,” he said.

    Research published by HSBC bank in January said that Yandex’s autonomous driving software put it on a par with global leaders in the technology and that it was catching up with Google’s Waymo.

    Yandex has not disclosed how much it has invested in self-driving technology, but Polishchuk said a single car cost 6.5 million roubles ($98,000). He said the price had fallen from the 9.5 million it had cost to build the company’s first prototype.

    “What’s more the car has become more technologically advanced,” he said.

    Yandex began working on driverless technology in 2016 and tested its first cars in 2017. The cars are currently being tested in Russia’s Skolkovo and Innopolis tech parks. The firm also obtained a licence to test driverless transport in Israel last year.

    Yandex, with over 30 offices globally, has been listed on the NASDAQ since 2011. Its services include food delivery and a ride-sharing business with Uber in Russia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia and Kazakhstan, among other countries.

    Polishchuk said the company was looking into the possibility of carrying out tests in the United States where he said legislation was the most progressive.

    Status of the Russian machine tools industry. Out of an expenditure total of 62 billion rubles for this year only 9 billion will go to Russian
    companies. The rest are imports.

    The interesting sub-story in the video is that of Stan. It was started by a man with stock holdings in aircraft companies in 2012.
    The initial 10 billion rubles has helped incorporate previous non-viable enterprises into one unit which can now produce machine tools
    of basically any type and on a world class level. The founder of this company is clearly not an oligarch and his company is growing
    well. So the BS about Russia being some corrupt oligarch run kleptocracy is just that, BS.

    But is that the whole story? Concerning the expenditures, a lot of foreign companies (especially German based) opted to allow Russia access to TOT as opposed to completely losing the 150 million person market, so the figure might be misleading. As it goes the path of least resistance.

    You are right, the figure likely hides all the foreign branch plant products labelled imports. After 2014 the NC machine industry has been growing
    at 12% per year. This is doubling every six years. I think this rate of growth will not slow down in the next decade or longer.

    Mass production of medical exoskeletons has started in Russia.

    May John McShitstain spin in his grave!

    Fedor the robot is not a gimmick. Unlike the useless NASA robot that was ballyhooed so much and then sent back to Earth without
    doing much, Fedor will be put to good use with a series of experiments including a space walk.

    Of course all the NATO sycophants are in love with Musk's orbital car gimmick, but put the hate on Fedor. These saps are f*cktards.

    https://www.nextbigfuture.com/2018/03/russia-claims-100-times-smaller-nuclear-reactor-than-submarine-reactors-but-with-more-power.html

    The only source of BS here is the author of this article and the rest of the insecure, racist western trash that thinks that every
    NATO citizen is born with a physics PhD while all Russians are congenital idiots. Grow a brain f*cktard.

    Russia has no molten salt reactors? (The terminology is obscure since Na is a "salt" and Russia already has the BN-800 which is well
    past the prototype stage and basically a platform to develop the BN-1200). Neither does the USA and never had. All the talk about
    the molten fluoride salt reactor tech supposedly developed in the USA during the 1960s and 1970s is rubbish. They never actually built
    a functional prototype. Following this logic anyone and his dog can claim to have built a reactor by scratching out some numbers on
    a piece of paper and doing some lab tests. Also, the bald faced claim that Russia could not possibly have developed a high energy
    density reactor because it never supposedly developed this US miracle that never reached prototype stage is an epic retarded non sequitur:

    1) How does this clown know that Russia never evaluated the USA miracle concept? Russia is not obliged to masturbate every achievement
    or science break through in public.

    2) No physical law constrains reactor configurations via some "USA did it first pathway". This is just infantilist delusion.

    The Burevestnik demonstrates that Russia has achieved major advances in reactor miniaturization and is still developing this technology as
    indicated by the recent accident.

    1) How does this clown know that Russia never evaluated the USA miracle concept? Russia is not obliged to masturbate every achievement
    or science break through in public.

    The first step in system development is to look at other peoples attempts... what were their goals, what did they achieve, what were the problems and why did they ultimately fail or if they succeeded what are our goals and how can we make it better suit our needs.

    Case in point is the gun launched anti tank missiles... both France and the US attempted to make gun launched anti tank missiles and both started by making the missiles first based on technology of the time and requirements so to get a good potent warhead and have lots of space for electronics the American weapon was 152mm calibre and the French one was about 142mm I think.

    France didn't really progress because it was clear that what they would end up with was a gun that was pretty useless for anything except launching these missiles and that the standard rounds would be non standard in their military and next to useless for any role except HE breaching charge.

    An APC with HOT missiles would have rather better performance and be much smaller, lighter, cheaper, and be much more effective. In comparison the missiles they Americans made were awful... there is no evidence they even fired a single missile in combat... and they were taken into combat several times. Driving around caused vibrations which completely turned the whole system into a dud.

    The Sheridan tank had armour a HMG could easily penetrate, could not carry that many rounds and never actually used its primary weapon as a missile launcher in combat... an enormous waste of money and time.

    The Soviets didn't want to make a missile carrying super tank... they had already tested that by developing the IT-1 and IT-2 that had Sagger missile launchers in place of a main gun. What they wanted to do was to develop a new type of ammo that could be used by any direct fire large calibre main gun they had, which as resulted in missiles for the 100mm (rifled) T-54/55 high pressure gun, the MT-12 100mm (smoothbore) high pressure towed gun, the 100mm rifled medium pressure gun of the BMP-3, and a modification with a small sleeve that was used on the 115mm smoothbore gun of the T-62, as well as various missiles for the 125mm tank gun too.

    The missiles didn't have the raw power of a 152mm calibre missile, but they offered reasonable penetration performance out to ranges where the enemy tank can hardly return fire effectively.

    They don't carry 40 missiles, they normally carry between 6 and 8 depending on the vehicle and the missiles are designed to be loaded into standard ammo handling systems and be handled like a standard round of ammo. Only minor modifications to the gunners sight are needed to use most of them.

    If the US leads the world in everything then why are they not selling 5G network equipment right now... why are the Chinese ready to sell theirs if they were only copying US technology? (rhetorical questions of course).

    Did anyone explain to the writer that US nuclear company is bankrupt after Fukushima disaster? And that Russia is only nation with working fast breeder nuclear facility? Rosatom is one of the few remaining, profiting and general tech achiever of nuclear development left in the world.
