Satellite Glonass entered in the system after maintenance

Satellite "Glonass" entered in the "system" after maintenance

One of the satellites of the GLONASS system, temporarily routed to the maintenance on Monday for scheduled maintenance, re-introduced into the orbital group, said in a statement on the website of the Russian System for Differential Correction and Monitoring (SDCM). "Spacecraft number 725 is entered into the system GLONASS," — said in a statement.   The satellite had already been removed from the system GLONASS Sunday, July 21, to carry out the work, but on the same day was re-introduced in the constellation. Now it is again withdrawn from

New AAMS MEADS withstood the test

Air missile system (AAMS) medium-range acts MEADS (Medium Extended Air Defense System) successfully passed tests proving ground to demonstrate abilities vserakursnym provide air and missile defense (air and missile defense). As an international company said MEADS Inc., Tests were conducted on the missile range White Sands (New Mexico). During tests AAMS MEADS could immediately seize and kill two aerial targets (VTS), soaring to the opposite direction. During the tests have been involved all the main components of the system: radar surveillance SR (Surveillance Radar) with radial visibility, command and control network host MEADS, two lung rockets launchers improved PAC-3 MSE

Launching the third multi-boat project MPB-14

June 19 at the Moscow shipbuilding and ship-repair plant An event dedicated to be launched third multipurpose boat project MPB-14, serial number 403.

MPB-14 (Multi Purpose Boat) — a modern, powerful, cost-effective, high-speed and highly maneuverable boat, which is a fusion of contemporary design and design solutions and innovative construction techniques. Fulfilling the mandate of the United Shipbuilding Corporation (JSC "United Shipbuilding Corporation") for the development of production katernogo, Moscow Shipyard in October 2011 started the construction of a series of 6 multi-purpose craft project MPB-14 on request Rosmorporta.

Demand for GLONASS equipment in the commercial segment will grow by 2-2.5 times

On Monday, with the cosmodrome "Plesetsk" successfully launched and placed into the target orbit navigation satellite "Glonass-M". After the commissioning of the satellite will complete the formation of the GLONASS satellite constellation, designed for 24 apparatus operating in the normal mode. As the deputy head of "Roskosmos" Anatoly Shilov, Russian satellite system is fully staffed for the first time after a 15-year hiatus. The grouping of 24 satellites will receive GLONASS signals without restrictions not only in Russia, but all over the world. And increase the accuracy of the coordinates. 2-3 years ago determination error was 30-50 meters. With the

Fighters will be able to look at the tanks shots

Company Northrop Grumman held a demonstration infrared survey system AN/AAQ-37 DAS. In its course the IR sensors of the F-35, which is able to find shots tank guns and armored vehicles to capture a goals. In the conditions of a real fight it will allow rapidly restore and apply precision weapon, destroying enemy tanks. Demonstration of new abilities DAS system held by plane stand-BAC 1-11 in the process of firing live ammunition in preparation for the exercises. Initially, in the DAS system requirements for the detection of a tank firing not laid, but the universality of IR system has

TsAGI specialists upgraded aerobatic Stand MS-21

The experts of the dynamics and control systems aircraft TSAGI completed the modernization of engineering piloting the stand of the main plane (SSMS).

As a result of work performed on the stand were installed prototypes of staff of the controls, which were then connected to its computer system.

These prototypes are designed for ergonomic layout and testing of control algorithms. They include engine control levers, flaps, spoilers, trim panel, as well as the active side knobs and pedals for two pilots. Handles and pedals are equipped with an adjustable electro-mechanical system boot.

Installed on the prototype will be further refined

Australian cyclone Lua dissipated, and a new cyclone formed

Australian cyclone Lua dissipated, and a new cyclone formed Natural Disasters

Tropical cyclone Lua reached the shores of Port Hedland, Western Australia, bringing with it heavy rains and destructive hurricane wind. March 17, 2012 Lua cleared, and a new tropical cyclone began to gain momentum. Warning of an impending cyclone was announced in Queensland.

Lua walked with rain and hurricane-force winds on a relatively sparsely populated area (although most Western Australians live in the south, where the cyclone hit.) Floods occur throughout the state, even in places where you would normally arid, desert like Gibson and Great Sandy Desert. Even

EGNOS system will receive protection from the sun

EGNOS system will receive protection from the sun's interesting

Representatives of the European Space Agency and the company Thales Alenia Space signed a contract to strengthen the European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service EGNOS and its protection from solar radiation. Discussed measures to further upgrade such services.

EGNOS officially began its work on 1 October 2009, and was used to increase the accuracy and reliability of the satellite signals and GPS-devices. Of this service depends on the work air travel, if you want to calculate the coordinates to an accuracy of 1 meter, or to make a landing at night or

Robert Freling, executive director of the solar electricity SELF, located in Washington, showed that for irrigation use of solar energy will be much more economical than the use of internal combustion engines with diesel fuel. The experiment of combining drip irrigation and solar energy in 2007 to save the dry regions of the world began in the villages Freling Dunkassa Bessassi and in the north of the West African country of Benin.

Originally the project was planned to install solar
