    Νew Technologies and Innovation Development in Russia - Page 26 Iris

    Russian Classified Companies Use Iris Recognition Instead Turngates

    Member companies of Rostec State Corporation began integrating the biometric iris identification system codenamed Vzor. According to the system developers from Siber holding, it appeared even more reliable than the layered biometric verification. The solution was demonstrated at the Army-2019 forum.

    "The iris recognition is a relatively young technology", said Andrey Gabelko, one of the Vzor system’s developers and a representative of Azimuth (division of Siber). "American and Korean companies have achieved huge success in this area. For example, such giants as LG and Samsung actively working on this aspect. We’ve managed not only to catch up, but even outstrip many of them".

    The system’s operating principle is simple: an infrared sensor scans a human iris and, if the biometric parameters are databased, the access is permitted. One of the application examples is the clockhouse of a classified facility, which makes the access cards or other ID means unnecessary. Vzor is already performing such functions at some Rostec companies.

    "One of our achievements is identification of a moving person. That means now people don’t need to stop to be identified. As of today, only we and one American company have implemented this function", explained Gabelko. "Our device can check up to 90 persons per minute. It is harder to find a turngate with the same pass-through capability. The record shows it is a critical issue for the companies employing thousands of people".

    Another key parameter of Vzor system is accuracy. According to the designers, even the layered biometric verification by several parameters like fingerprints or face geometry cannot ensure such precision. Moreover, to date it is impossible to forge iris. The more statistics the system gets, i.e. the more people register in it, the more effective it will be.

    "Presently, we’re researching deeper into the biometry matter, tracing specific aspects and possible deviations, optimizing algorithms to improve the system reliability, updating design, making the device more compact", added Andrey Gabelko."Our researches are conditioned by different applications that need access control. One of the promising areas is the infosphere access, namely, authentication and verification".

    The LEDs in your monitor are likely to be made by with material from a Russian company (AO Monocrystal).   It holds 50% of the global market for synthetic
    sapphire production.  Synthetic sapphire is the base of LEDs and is used in solar panel production.   The scratch resistant coating on
    smartphone screens is synthetic sapphire as well.

    Who knew?  Even the Russian media can't be bothered to report on such achievements.   BTW, the company was grown into its present
    global giant status by the man who bought a bankrupt company for a million dollars in 1999.  This is the sort of capitalist that is
    worthy of respect.   Not parasites like Khodorkovsky, etc.

    A large industrial sized 3D printer designed/developed by the Irkutsk based company Apis Cor, which is the only one of its kind (in the world) that can build large multi-story buildings as one piece, unlike analogues that only make piece-together prefabs, and they just set a Guinness World Record:

      3D Irkutsk construction printer sets Guinness record by building a building in Dubai

    Νew Technologies and Innovation Development in Russia - Page 26 F_c3RhdGljLmlyay5ydS9tZWRpYS9pbWcvc2l0ZS9nYWxsZXJ5LzMwNDI0L2E1ZDJmYWEzLTFjOGUtNDg5Zi1iZjI1LTAyZWMyMzg2NDJjMl9qcGdfNzMweDEwMDBfcTg1LmpwZz9fX2lkPTEyODI0Nw==

    The largest 3D printing building in the world has opened in Dubai, already listed in the Guinness Book of Records. The walls of the building were erected with the help of a construction 3D printer, authored by Irkutsk company Apis Cor.

    After the sensational demonstration project in Stupin, where Apis Cor erected the first domestic 3D-printed building ( pictured below ) in the winter of 2016-2017, almost nothing was heard about the Irkutsk company, but the guys were not sitting idle. The startup took part in the NASA competition for the development and demonstration of promising building additive technologies for the development of Mars in a team with the New York architectural bureau SEArch +. The team won one of the intermediate stages , just when it came to practical 3D printing, but failed to reach the final.

    Νew Technologies and Innovation Development in Russia - Page 26 F_M2R0b2RheS5ydS9jYWNoZS84NzB4L3Bvc3RzL21haW4vMVFETVBCNWYyVlFKcWhiR1I5TklnUTYxTEprT3hBN29nUXNqcktjeS5qcGVnP19faWQ9MTI4MjQ3

    But it's okay: while NASA decides who will print on Mars, Apis Cor took revenge on Earth by printing a record building in Dubai. For comparison, the area of ​​the house in Stupin was only thirty-seven square meters, while the Dubai building already covers 640 square meters. Moreover, it is also the first of its kind two-story 3D-printed structure with a total height of 9.5 meters. Two and even five-story 3D-printing houses already exist, but with one caveat: previous projects were assembled from previously prepared blocks, while Apis Cor, apparently, printed the building “in its entirety”. The unusual design of the 3D printer played into the hands, which differs from the more common portal systems by its relatively low weight, compactness and resulting transportability.

    Νew Technologies and Innovation Development in Russia - Page 26 M2R0b2RheS5ydS9jYWNoZS84NzB4L3Bvc3RzL21haW4vcmFhdGQ3d0lYdGR3V2tkNU1pMzI4dWFVUXowcUlUSFh0cWU3dHJKMy5qcGVnP19faWQ9MTI4MjQ3

    In Apis Cor 3D printers, the mortar is applied with the head on a telescopic rod mounted on a turntable and height-adjustable. In fact, the installation prints walls around itself. After printing is completed, the equipment is lifted using a truck crane and transferred to a new location for the next stage of work, or to a truck body for transportation. In other words, in this project the first floor was printed first, then the ceilings were laid, the 3D printer was transferred to them and the walls of the second floor were printed. It should be assumed that two floors can not be limited.

    As a consumable, a gypsum mixture of our own design, made from local raw materials, was used. After 3D printing of fixed formwork, the walls were filled with reinforcement and then poured with heavy concrete. The calculation of the design was made by Moscow State University of Civil Engineering. When designing, such factors as seismic resistance and vertical loads were taken into account, a modal analysis was carried out, shear and fracture resistance under the influence of horizontal forces was calculated, and so on.

    The result of the efforts is the Guinness official record, only registered not at Apis Cor, but at the Dubai municipality that organized the project. Irkutsk printer builders are not mentioned at all in the official summary of the municipality or in the media at all, although the unusual additive system is clearly visible in the video published by the Dubai authorities ( see below ), and the company itself does not hide its involvement in the project. By 2030, the Dubai authorities intend to increase the proportion of new buildings erected using 3D printing technology to 25%. In the Middle East market, Apis Cor will have to compete with a number of enterprises, including the Dutch CyBe Construction with its mobile 3D printer on a tracked platform and the Chinese WinSunwho built the first Dubai 3D printing building in 2017. More information about Apis Cor and the Dubai project can be found on the official website at this link .

    I can definitely the explicit advantages to a one piece 3D-printed building:

    1.) A one piece design probably has more structural integrity than a prefab design. Less moving parts, as the saying goes your only as strong as your weakest link.

    2.) Should theoretically be cheaper, as building the walls as one piece (as opposed to prefab) should cut down on time as well as the cost of man-hours.

    Two pieces of Elbrus News I forgot to post:

    https://sdelanounas.ru/blogs/128269/

    The development of the microprocessor Elbrus-16S goes according to plan: received the first engineering samples!

    Νew Technologies and Innovation Development in Russia - Page 26 TRvV06A

    The development of the Russian 16-core microprocessor Elbrus-16S is in full compliance with the approved plan.

    As we learned from the act of delivery-acceptance of stage 3 of the ROC "Development and mastering of serial production of universal microprocessor with performance of 1.5 TFlops for the creation on its basis of high-performance computing systems", the cipher Processor-15", all work carried out in full.

    Factory TSMC was received on 15 engineering samples of chips 1891ВМ038 (Elbrus-16S) and confirmed their performance.

    Commission of the Ministry of industry and trade signed the act of acceptance of works and recommended to proceed to the fourth stage.

    The Commission recommended changes and additions to the development of the CPU:

    - To increase the total capacity of the cache memory to 48 MB to optimize the performance of the static planning and the significant reduction of conflicts in multi-core work.
    - To increase the amount of memory on a single microprocessor up to 1 Terabyte (instead of 256 Gigabytes) by the availability of appropriate memory modules.
    - Implement additional hardware and software MP, providing virtualization has the ability to execute code x86-64 (for a more complete use of the parallel capabilities of multi-core architecture).
    - To implement hardware capabilities for dynamic optimization are necessary for the efficient execution of dynamic languages and increasing the speed of program due to the additional optimization of their performance.

    Νew Technologies and Innovation Development in Russia - Page 26 IwFCXlc

    Was also introduced other significant changes:

    - The total throughput of high speed LVDS links increased to 72 GB/sec (12 GB/sec for the transmission and reception of data for each of the 3 links).
    - Updated total peak bandwidth channels memory — 76 GB/sec.
    - Determined number of USB 3.0 ports — 4
    - The structure of the microprocessor included additional controllers: a) SPMC — power management and power consumption level of the computing complex; b) controller universal serial RS-232 port.

    But there is in the act and a number of rather controversial and strange decisions.

    So, instead of the originally planned memory controller DDR4-3200 in the act specified controller DDR4-2400. Implementation of the four embedded PCI-Express 3.0 (with a total width of up to 32 lines) also has a number of "features": they share a physical line with South bridge KPI-2 and one of three high-speed LVDS links for communication with other processors. And the Ethernet controllers share the same physical line as the SATA controller is 3.0.

    But overall it looks pretty promising. The work is going according to plan and barring anything unforeseen, the completion of the development of the microprocessor and its testing by the Commission must occur from October 20 to December 20, 2020.

    The Elbrus is really quite an achievement. For a VLIW design to develop in a fashion similar to Intel x86 CPUs is not trivial. There
    must be real world exploitation of the VLIW architecture. This implies a robust software base including binary recompiled commercial
    software. MCST has managed what Intel could not with the Itanium.

    I think initially MCST got the idea behind using VLIW due to how cluster systems these years rely more on GPU's than CPU's and GPU's architecture is VLIW.

    Only issue is that programs have to be really programmed for it like how it was back in RISC or MIPS days. If the software isn't built around it, it isn't as effective as x86. Right now they are still infancy in the library of the architecture but they are still plugging away at it. They do have third party companies all interested and involved - plus the open source community.

    Russia is advancing remote detection capability to cover the full spectrum of missiles and military aircraft. Thus so-called
    stealth aircraft taking off 3000 km away are detected as are cruise missiles. The fact that cruise missiles can be tracked from
    their launch points is impressive. The whole cruise missile shtick is to fly low as to be invisible to radar.

    As with the Su-57 the fixation of NATO fanbois and leaders on 1940s radars is pathetic. Remote detection uses all sorts of
    frequencies bounced off the ionosphere and has nothing in common with line-of-sight radars. The cruise missiles and stealth
    aircraft are being illuminated from above and not from the ground. So there is no horizon and terrain playing a role. The
    scattered EM bounces between the ground and the ionosphere thousands of kilometers. With modern high gain amps even
    super-attenuated return signals can be processed.
