Russia Developing Lethal Warhead Based on New Physical Principles
Russia along with other countries is developing weapons based on the so-called "new physical principles". This was confirmed by Russian President Vladimir Putin.
As noted by the head of state: "Today, in the 21st century, to strengthen the military potential of the world's leading countries actively used to develop weapons of the most modern technologies, the latest achievements of science: the laser, hypersonic, robotics".
Special attention, Putin said, is paid to the development of weapons based on new physical principles, which allows selective impact on critical elements of weapons, equipment, and infrastructure of a potential enemy.
Warhead "based on new physical principles" created in Russia
For the Land forces of Russia are created missiles with a warhead, acting on the basis of new physical principles. What will be the main striking effect of the development, not specified.
Earlier today it became known that the Land forces of the Russian Federation are missiles with warheads operating on the basis of new physical principles. Under the conditional ONFP term refers to the weapons based on physical processes and phenomena not previously used in conventional weapons (cold and fire) or weapon of mass destruction (nuclear, chemical, bacteriological). For example, OPP include: laser, radiofrequency, beam, geophysical, and other types of weapons.
The theme ONFP has become quite popular lately. A number of experts refers to this term with skepticism.

Russia became the fourth country managed to create its own thermal imaging matrix
The company "Istok" and the Central Research Institute "Cyclone" (included in the holding "Russian Electronics") are engaged in the preparation of serial production "uncooled microbolometer detectors matrix" that form the basis of thermal imaging devices, according to the representative of the Research Institute Alexey Gorbunov.
According to him, "Russia became the fourth country in the world after the US, France and China, who managed to create their own thermal imaging matrix".
"Samples corresponding to the parameters to the world level. The country has established the production with the release of up to 10 thousand units per year ", -. Gorbunov said.
According to military expert in the field of armored vehicles, Sergei Suvorov, "thermal imaging camera - one of the most important parts of modern war machine, and unlike other sights imager is able to work in complete darkness and zero visibility."
"The imager includes not only die, but also an optical system, and the software is able to process and visualize on-screen image, including the detected target. Until recently, we purchased the French matrix Thales Catherine-FC and Sagem Matiz, based on which were created Thermal sighting system "Essa" for T-90 tanks and "Plisa" T-80 ", - he explained.
"Russia's sights with the same matrix were better than the French, - said the expert. - Since our country was better technology for manufacturing of lenses and software. "
"The equipment, produced in the country, it is not just the sights, this complex system as a weapon guidance and night driving techniques. That is, such systems allow to continue the movement of equipment, even if the armored car crew lost the opportunity to personally monitor the situation through the cockpit glazing "- said Suvorov.
Help the newspaper: "The production of domestic matrices could begin as early as 2010, but because of the" French "of the contract implementation of their own development is constantly postponed. Today, the Ministry of Defense is prepared to order not only thermal imaging systems for armored vehicles, but also sights for small arms and MANPADS, which just used uncooled microbolometer matrix receivers. So, for MANPADS "Igla" and "Willow" set sights "Mowgli" and "Mowgli-1." On the whole armor of "Almaty was", "Kurgan" and "Typhoon" and even ships will be put "Slingshot". "
Sensationalist title though, since Russia made Matrices before, but cooled ones (and no, I am not just speaking of the French kind, but one from Orion-ir).
The article seems to forget Israel (SCD,..), which is extremely active in this field...

Technopolis "ERA" equipped with a supercomputer
In Anapa (Krasnodar Territory) in the Military Innovation Technopolis "ERA" completed tests of the data processing center (DPC) of the Information and Telecommunications Center. The area of the data center building is over 600 sq.m.
At the moment, the first supercomputer segment has been launched, followed by a multiple increase in computing power.
The work of all data center information systems is based on the Astra Linux software of domestic production, adopted for supply to the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation. The created data center will strengthen the work of laboratories and will allow to conduct research in the field of breakthrough information technologies at a new qualitative level.
The key component of the created supercomputer is a high-speed communication network of domestic production, which integrates all computing nodes into a single high-performance computing complex.
According to key characteristics, the used network is not inferior to the best foreign analogues.
The creation of a super computer in record time (two months) was carried out by the Russian Federal Nuclear Center - All-Russian Scientific Research Institute of Technical Physics named after Academician EI Zababakhin on the order of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.
Putting the data center into operation will allow solving the need for information resources, both of the ERA technopolis and industrial enterprises engaged in scientific activities in the technopolis.
The enterprises of the military-industrial complex - residents of the ERA technopolis - have already made applications for the use of supercomputer resources for use in scientific activities.
The coordination of the activities of the Military Innovation Technopolis "ERA" is carried out by the Main Directorate for Research and Development Activities and Technological Support of Advanced Technologies (Innovative Resear

Then again maybe its just all that marketing combined with the chemicals in thier food, either way its a victory so it really doesn't matter.
Russian Military Deployed ‘Combat Telepathy’ in Chechnya, Report Claims
The Russian military tested the telepathic effects of parapsychology in its wars in Chechnya in the 1990s and the early 2000s, a news magazine run by the Defense Ministry has claimed.
The techniques reportedly allowed soldiers to wiretap conversations, disrupt software, identify potential terrorists and read foreign-language documents locked in a safe — all using nothing but their minds. The expert community is divided on the existence of parapsychology capabilities in the military, reported the RBC news website, which spotted the article on Wednesday.
The explosive claims appeared in the February issue of the Defense Ministry’s “Army Digest” magazine under the headline “Supersoldier for Future Wars.”
“Those capable of metacontact can, for example, conduct nonverbal interrogations. They can see through the captured soldier: who this person is, their strong and weak sides, and whether they’re open to recruitment,” an excerpt from the article reads.
“The reliability of the interrogation is almost 100 percent. It’s impossible to ‘wriggle out’ of it,” writes the author, colonel Nikolai Poproskov.
He claimed Russian soldiers are trained to resist the same capabilities in case they get captured, as well as maintain all their faculties while forgoing food, drink or sleep for days at a time.
The Defense Ministry magazine’s guidelines cited by RBC say its articles are picked based on their “relevance, analysis of existing problems in military theory and practice and proposed solutions.”
Medical Exosuit May Turn Into Combat Version
Prototypes of the medical exosuits Remotion designed for rehab of locomotive-disable patients may underlie a combat exoskeleton, representatives of the Mechatronic Systems laboratory told Mil.Press Today at the Army-2019 forum.
Development of medical exoskeletons began in 2017 by the order of Volzhsky Electromechanical Plant (division of Almaz-Antey concern). The first prototype was made in half a year, and now the product prepares for qualification tests, and the plant has mastered batch production. Expectedly, the medical device will enter the market early in 2020.
According to Alexander Kudryavtsev, CEO of Mechatronic Systems, the exosuit is intended to help patients with locomotive disability caused by different traumas or brain attacks. Using the microdrives, the device corrects movement of the patient’s legs, thus the brain registers artificial walking algorithm and learns to walk again.
Besides, the exoskeleton is equipped with additional systems speeding up the rehabilitation process. A special unit is responsible for functional electrostimulation of muscles, and electromyography sensors check tissue tone helping to correct the therapy, if needed.
"We’re finishing this project now and preparing to launch the new robotechnics ones, both in medicine and defense industry. We’ve got a plenty of them", said Alexander Kudryavtsev. "In this area, we actively interact with the direct customer and representatives of Almaz-Antey. One of the promising trends that kindles interest of all our colleagues is designing of a combat exoskeleton".
As for the designer, In Russia people address to that topic quite much, though the projects fail to implement. In many ways, the reason is hardly resolvable technical problems. The first problem is related to high energy consumption of such system. The second issue is dimensions and weight hindering effective use of these assets. Designing of a functioning prototype capable to perform particular missions needs a new approach.
"We know the problems and have solutions. However, this needs a huge amount of research works", added the director of Mechatronic Systems. "Designing of the medical exosuit gave us much. I mean not only proven technologies and technical solutions, but an experience, too. Now it is hard to predict how much time and forces the researches would need, but if such task is given to us, I’m sure we will achieve much".
