Thoughtless Piracy of Intellectual Property

A long time ago I heard a story about a sapper shovel, which in Soviet times was produced by a munitions factory in Kiev. Recently I accidentally found the same shovel. It very compact and easy to carry, store and use. The shovel is a multifunctional tool that combines a shovel, a saw and an ax.

Robotics for Ministry of Defence

I already have came back home after business trip. It was small journey to professional symposium and expo “Robotics for Ministry of Defence”. The main reason of symposium was presidential decree #623 (2015.12.16) about foundation of National Development Center of Technologies and Base Elements of Robotics.

Automated Coordinates Determination of an Air Drone

Air Drones have rapidly integrated into routine life and work. However these rapidness also causes a lack of control. Using of satellite navigation systems is not correct for drone’s bearing, so it is necessary to apply ground appartus for space coordinates detection. For information, drone usually called “unmanned aerial vehicle” in Russia. It sounds like “BPLA” or just “BLA”. It’s for laugh: several drones are bla-bla-bla-… .

Present invention (RU2523446, priority from 2011, Armaments Academy of Russian Federation) includes a method which can be used to determine coordinates of “enemy” air drone in automatic mode.

Mobile Direction Finding Apparatus

There was some silent because of my participation in serious project. And now I try to compose an application for patent. It’s my favorite CPC (Cooperative Patent Classification) section G01S03/40 – “Radio direction-finding appartus using orientation of a single directivity characteristic to produce maximum or minimum signal”. In my opinion, it’s the most suitable section for mobile direction-finders. I found just single invention (US8456296, priority from 2009, by Radio System Corp), which looks similar to my design. The invention is named “Assisted direction finding apparatus”.

Stealth Aircraft

Now I try to start new section in the blog – “Inv-in Russia”. The section dedicated to inventions in Russia. And this post will about one rapid stuff like an aircraft. This aircraft (RU2572366, priority from 2014 and registered in 2016, by Beriev Aircraft Company) is shipborne and ground-based. It has observation and guidance all around antennas which intended for traffic control and sea patrolling. Moreover, the craft has low radar signature.
