researchers through computer aerodynamics simulation tests

Friday, February 24th, 2012

In early February, the U.S. Lockheed Martin Sandia National Laboratories announced the development of laser-guided bullets like darts. This laser-guided bullet 4 inches long (about 10.16 cm), point 50 caliber (referring to the cartridge case diameter of 0.5 inches, or about 12.7 mm) gun family weapons. The researchers said the laser-guided bullets during the flight can automatically adjust the direction, the same as mini-missiles hit one mile (about 1.6 km) outside the target. This bullet can be extensive equipment of the army, thereby enhancing the shooting of the hit rate, ordinary soldiers also have the magic sniper marksmanship.

hit rate Health

According to reports, in the battlefields of Afghanistan and Iraq on the battlefield, by factors such as weather, wind speed, light, and the moving target. U.S. soldiers often consume a large amount of bullets can not hit the target. In order to improve the range of weapons and shooting accuracy, the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) as early as four years ago, a secret to start a named EXACTO (Extreme Accuracy Tasked Ordnance) project, that is, a range of up to 5 km high-precision weapons project. Sandia, Lockheed Martin is responsible for the development of this laser-guided bullets It is EXACTO part of the project, although present in the initial development phase, but its ultimate goal is to develop a search and targeted and accurately hit the target of bullets. before

the unique the design

long eye long fins bullets on the laser-guided bullet broke through the inertial trajectory of the bullets fired from the threaded barrel, straight flight, opened up the precedent of no power curve flight directly to subvert the traditional firing principle.

guided bombs, guided missile is not surprise, but to develop a bullet there is a certain difficulty with the guidance function. because of the caliber of the bullet, smaller, in which you installed guidance device and flight control devices is a very difficult thing with the information the rapid development of technology, laser-guided technology and artificial intelligence technologies, each of the Sandia National Laboratories researchers to overcome these challenges.

a unique micro-laser-guided bullets internal control system, whose main two major parts: First, the guidance system, an optical sensor in the bullet front-end for search, tracking a laser-guided toward the target point, the internal sensors can target the ever-changing information timely passed to the guidance and command components , the latter through an 8-bit central processing unit to calculate the flight path, and directing the electromagnetic gear. transmission system, a drive motor and a similar transmission system to provide continuous power continuously rotating miniature Collembola, adjust the direction, control bullets circuitous twists and turns to hit the target. Therefore, it was the image of the type of bullets called miniature laser guided missile of the mind new era. Allegedly different from ordinary bullets, this laser-guided bullet does not rely on the groove or thread rifling to achieve high-speed rotation, in order to maintain a straight flight. It uses a unique smooth-bore design, do not have to rotate after a bullet fired miniature tail fins . The researchers said, per second, it can automatically adjust the navigation path 30 to be able to shoot with great precision the effect. the

researchers through computer aerodynamics simulation tests, found that the ordinary bullet by outside influence each advance one kilometer away from the goal at least 9.8 meters, this laser-guided bullets in the same circumstances would only deviate from the 0.2 m . Its unique tail can adapt to changes in aerodynamics, wind speed and the role of gravity in a certain limit, offset, thereby increasing the targeting and shooting distance, improve operational effectiveness.

Sandia researchers said the soldiers on the battlefield in the use of laser-guided bullets, do not need to rely on sight for accurate targeting, as long as the target, regardless of which direction the shooting, a bullet through laser navigation self-modified, adjust the direction of flight, more quickly and accurately hit the target. This greatly weakened the role of the sniper known as Guided bullets, there is a prominent feature: the ability to combat the enemy hidden in the walls, trenches, stone, or house.

this laser-guided bullets has a broad development prospects. Just think, maybe in the near future, the soldiers filled with laser-guided bullets, musket armed, do not Danfei rain can do the one shot kill a. Therefore, some experts said the use of laser-guided bullets, marking the infantry of the oldest branches of the military have begun to enter the era of precision strike. The laboratory is responsible for claims that its potential customers include the military, law enforcement agencies. difficult

deficiencies to overcome

Although this laser-guided bullets have been tested successfully, the result is encouraging, but there are still some problems to be solved. The person in charge of even the Sandia National Laboratories have to admit that the biggest challenge existing scientific and technological content of this bullet, the cost is too high, resulting in the lack of R & D expenditure.

In addition, experts said, this not the lethality of the laser-guided bullets. Its muzzle velocity of 2400 ft / sec (about 732 m / sec), and standards military speed there is a gap. Meanwhile, because of its own is not the continued momentum, once during the flight to change the forward direction, will inevitably consume some momentum, so that its lethality and non-guided bullets weak.

talked about its deficiencies, was also noted that this laser-guided bullets used in conjunction with the laser pointer, is bound to cause its applicability is limited, can not be made of conventional weapons of mass the armed forces, the idea very suitable for special forces, snipers use. Some experts said that if the laser beam to indicate targets, so a guide can easily exposure. If the settings indicate points on the target in advance, will undoubtedly increase the coefficient of the difficulties of action. Seen in this light, the laser-guided bullets to the all-powerful in the future on the battlefield, there is still a long way to go.

Thailand and other countries initiatives in Russia

Millions of hectares of land in the Far East, long-term leased to foreign investors. Okay? OK? Should? The Russian people are seriously and repeatedly weigh carefully.
<- more ->

January 27, land in recent years has been market-oriented reforms of agricultural land. It is reported that this proposal is submitted to the federal government by the Russian Ministry of Economic Development on the use of Vladivostok, Russia in September this year in hosting the APEC leaders informal summit to attract foreign investment in a series of one of the important recommendations of the machine. This proposal aims to enable Russia to make a greater contribution to enhance world food security.

Article followed by a clear show some kind of deep concern: closed ethnic enclaves.

A day earlier, the Russian Ministry of Economic Development Deputy Minister Alexander Si Liepu Neff met with media reporters, said: region-specific programs. So far, the department has to be prepared about 20 investment projects and jointly promote the agricultural development of the Russian Far East to the Asia-Pacific countries.

Si Liepu Neff said:

Eager to Asia-Pacific multi-country very interested

It is reported that this proposal of the Ministry of Economic Development is the Government of the Russian Federation formally adopted, the proposal is likely during the APEC leaders’ informal meeting in September 2012 by the new president of Russia formally announced.

According to Si Liepu Neff said, according to the scale of investment of each piece of agricultural land project, the lease of agricultural land should be longer, not just 5 years. He stressed that Russia’s current law allows long-term land rented out to foreigners.

Si Liepu Neff also revealed that the present, there are investors from Vietnam, Singapore, Japan, Thailand and other countries initiatives in Russia, this is still brewing a clear demonstration of strong interest. Particularly worth mentioning is that North Korea also seem eager to lease agricultural land in the Amur region.

50 rubles per hectare rent!

It is understood that Russia is currently the territory of the total agricultural land area of ​​168 million hectares, of which nearly 1/4 of arable land is idle, it can not be said for Russia is a kind of

However, Si Liepu Neff Shi pointed out in the introduction of this proposal of the Russian Economic Development Ministry of Russia’s agricultural land is not leased by foreign investors without any restrictions: from a geographical point of view the best the West can not be over Lake Baikal, Russia to rent agricultural land is only confined to Primorye, Khabarovsk, Amur. 3 to rentable total agricultural land area of ​​approximately 150000-200000 ha, total investment is expected to reach tens of billions of dollars.

Ye Fu Gaini Qana Aliyev, a senior scholar in international politics of Russia and the Institute of World Economy Asia-Pacific Research Center, said that less than 50 percent of arable land usage of the Russian Far East and Eastern Siberia, and global climate change could increase the region in the next 30 to 50 years, agricultural production by 11-14%.

According to this reporter learned that the three regions of Primorye, Khabarovsk Amur agricultural land is more suitable for planting beans, rice and a variety of cereal crops.

Others are concerned that fear of being

Ministry of Economic Development of the

Boris Fu Lumu gold, senior expert of the Agricultural Research Centre of the Russian Academy of Sciences Institute of Economic Research, said the proposal is

Fu Lumu gold, the most likely way to Russia and Vietnam or North Korea to create a joint venture company, to avoid the

Development Research Center analyst Sergei Shade Bin worry, these rental of agricultural land is likely to be

Independent economic analyst Suleyman Terry Barr Cove, which is a good idea to attract foreign investors to participate in the agricultural development of the Russian Far East: new prospects for the development of this region. Of course, this also needs to seriously consider immigration policy. In fact, as early as during the Soviet period, the Korean people there to grow food and vegetables.

Business Review observers Ci Kefu said: a new model of economic and trade cooperation, of course poses a danger which may lead to the dissatisfaction of the local residents in the Russian Far East …

Venture of the Russian Academy of Sciences Far East Institute scholar Vladimir Maci Lin, said: predicament.

He believes that this arable land leased way to start with small pieces of farmland began to lease the best from 50 years shortened to three decades. He said: a year and a half ago, we have the federal government proposal to allow Russia’s Asian immigrants engaged in agricultural production in a given area, but do not allow them to engage in trade or to other major cities to Russia should create conditions to ensure the implementation of these investment projects.

Hope of foreign immigrants afraid of foreign immigrants

Maci Lin stressed: their goal is to earn a little money here and then go home to do something a small business in his hometown. But at the same time, the Russian government must strictly enforce the management of immigration. experience tells us that allow Asian immigrants in the territory of the Russian Liberal work, then they will immediately went to the big cities of Russia and to do business there. and adverse to our country.

Obviously, Russia is entangled in the Far East idle agricultural land will not lead to the dilemma of the social and political issues.

On the one hand, there is no injection of foreign investment and foreign labor, Russia can not realize their own strength in the development and revitalization of the Far East. And if the development gap in the Far East and Eastern Siberia and Russia’s other regions over time and gradually widened, the Russian central government will face more than simple differences in the economic development issues.

Other hand, Russia has always been foreign investment and foreign labor into the Far East harbor deeply hidden fear of the Russian Far East by foreign immigrants

From Russian experts on the interpretation of this proposal of the Ministry of Economic Development, it is easy to see that the tangle of all sectors of development issues in the Far East. The development of the Far East, the Russian Government and the community have said for years, but the harvest is not clear more small. With the complexity of the problem mentality in Russia from all walks of life are inextricably linked. Russia in order to truly develop the Far East, in fact, it is more important is the heart to be crossed


radar stations used to destroy the air defense system

Monday, February 13th, 2012

Australia is developed at the regional competition with China and Russia F -20 to purchase 100 F-35 stealth fighters from the United States, T-50 ranking Five fighters against an important bargaining chip. However, according to U.S. Defence News website reported on January 31, Australian Defense Minister Smith said, due to delays in service time, Australia is re-evaluating procurement project.

Reported that, according to production plan, Australia after 2014 can only be received 12-14 F-35 fighters, rather than the originally planned 100. Australia, the first two F-35 production in 2014 for the Australian pilot training. In 2018 while the remaining fighters to be delivered Australia Air Force, the combat effectiveness. The Australian Government is considering or requesting the United States to give priority to Australia to provide the F-35 fighters, or acquisition of other advanced transition aircraft to respond to future Australian air force

Australia’s F-35 service is so urgent, due to the Australian military in the long-standing controversy on the procurement of the fifth generation fighter project. 2007 when he was Australian Air Force deputy commander Peter Chris had pointed out that the Australian Air Force should consider purchasing the F-22, but not the F-35. Since then, with the Russian-made T-50, Indo-Russian joint project of the FGFA and F -20 ranking Five fighters have exposure, Australia, many defense experts worry that Australia purchase F-35 fighter and can not ensure the country’s air safety. Carol Cooper, Monash University, Australia’s defense experts claimed that the contend with the U.S. F-22 fighter in the event of a T-50 aircraft or F -20 fighter, anything other than the F-22 fighters may combat loss was unbearable. F-35 fighter development and production of the progress of repeated delays, a serious shortage of supply, Meifang Zhang Panetta recently announced that the F-35 production program will once again be postponed and finally Australia unbearable.

Compared with Australia, China and Russia developed the fifth-generation fighter was constantly coming progress smoothly message. Itar-Tass, January 31, Boris O’Brien Nuosuo Fu, general manager of Russian tactical missile weapons, the T-50 supporting the development of a variety of new missile systems will be completed in 2012-2013. Including the range of 15-250 km Kh-31ПД high-speed machine contains anti-radar missiles, radar stations used to destroy the air defense system; being developed Kh-35УЭ type missile is an anti-ship tactical missiles from fighter planes, helicopters and ships on the launch, he said: missiles to hit air targets in the short-range high-speed maneuvering Air Combat has a very high anti-interference ability. The Russia compulenta web site February 1, declared China to compete with the U.S. F-22 fighter F -20 stealth fighter developed smoothly, and will begin production within a few years, so that China has become the United States and Russia third with a fifth-generation fighter countries.
