Ultraprotected laptops designed for Russian military

52
In the interests of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, new ultra-secure laptops have been developed, which are equipped with a unique system of protection and liquidation, according to News.




The novelty is planned to be used to control complex high-tech weapons, while the gadgets are twice as light as the previous generation, have a powerful processor and a high-resolution screen. The laptop was presented by the company "Scientific and Technical Center" Elins "" on the forum "Army-2017".

Earlier models in the kit had a full-fledged sledgehammer, so that if they were threatened by the enemy, they could be broken in the right place, because mechanical destruction of the information carrier is necessary. Now, just press the button, and all data together with the media will be quickly and guaranteed to be destroyed,
told one of the developers of the product Sergey Sklyarov.

It is also important that the new military gadgets in their size and ergonomics approached the civilian brethren.

This is a completely new model, which we brought straight from the shop. It has not yet received its own name, only the number, but thanks to new technological solutions we were able to improve the weight and size characteristics and ergonomics. We have also implemented a number of solutions in terms of import substitution. A number of functional units, which used to be on the import element base, were transferred to domestic chips,
said Sklyarov.

The product is enclosed in a special impact-resistant casing - according to standards, it must safely survive a fall from a height of 1 m on a concrete floor.

“The latest generation laptop weighs only about 4 kg and boasts a Core i7 processor as well as a FullHD display, which is important when working with the card. And apparently it is no longer a green box, but rather a civilian gadget dressed in a bulletproof vest. In the new model there is also a miniature joystick, and the mouse buttons are duplicated under the left hand for quickness of work. Military laptops use special software and an operating system from the Linux family, ”the article says.

The chief editor of the magazine “Arms Export” told the newspaper that in modern conditions the military cannot do without gadgets.

They are needed both to transmit information and to control high-tech weapons systems. However, ordinary laptops or tablets are not suitable for the battlefield. Combat laptops should be well protected, work in extreme conditions, and also have greater autonomy,
The expert explained.

      It was reported today that the Ishilovites captured the Russian T-90 tank.
      What? There was no sledgehammer to prevent the enemy from learning secrets? belay

        Do you know how to crack a cash machine?
        Very simple! Take a laptop and a sledgehammer. Come to the ATM
        smash it with a sledgehammer to smithereens, take the money and dump it.
        Why then take a laptop, you ask?
        I answer: what kind of hacker are you without a laptop ... laughing

        And as for the "bourgeois materiel" - it is necessary to saturate the troops with automation means right now. And do not wait for the invention of a sovereign platinum bicycle.

          As far as I know, bookmarks are made at a technical level, that is, additional chains of semiconductors are built directly into the CPU. These are not programs (software), it will not work to track them. Until they work, you will not know about them. Here is an excerpt from an article about this:
          According to the publication of the security specialist Damien Zammit (Damien Zammit), in modern Intel chipsets there is a built-in local and isolated from other units Intel Microcontroller Intel Management Engine (Intel ME). This solution with its firmware, inaccessible for study by third-party tools and with the rights of full control over the processor, memory and the system as a whole. Moreover, the controller can work with the PC turned off, if only the power was supplied to the memory. Of course, the operating system and utilities will not be aware of the controller’s activity either by sleep or spirit, and they won’t sound an alarm while it is working with the system and data.

          Here is the full version, I recommend that you read:

            But contrary to common sense. The other “chip microcontroller” cannot be detected in only one case, when it cannot affect the operation of the computer in any way. That is useless.

              I agree or not. Any chip is tested and specialists read completely undefined (in the sense of not voiced) manufacturer and properties. Superfluous software and built-in chains like a fly in the ointment are invisible in appearance, but they also taste and smell.

                Unfortunately, the processor architecture is impossible to recognize / decrypt, to understand which transistors for what. If everything was so simple, then Chinese friends would have been riveting analogs of Intel and AMD processors for a long time. The structure of the CPU is multi-layered and no photographs will help to recreate a copy of it. So the chips that are embedded can be seen, but it is unlikely to recognize how they work.
                Therefore, our experts are dragging this project "Elbrus", although in terms of capacity it is at the level of Intel Pentium 3, but without bookmarks.

                    Well, you see, the clock speed is at the Pentium 3 level. laughing
                    Peak performance is good, but by no means everything that says CPU performance. AMD also has good peak performance, but in terms of overall performance, it lags languidly after Intel. Not even Rubber. But, in general, I believe that the power of Elbrus for the military is beyond the eyes. Indeed, they are not "Tanchiki" on them (laptops) will ride.

                        So I never wrote that this is the same thing. Simply, performance directly depends on the clock frequency. This is known to every overclocker who wants to squeeze maximum performance from his CPU.

                        That's right, processors from intel and amd go on a truncated command platform, unlike elbrus. However, software compiled for a truncated platform will not be able to use all the features of a full platform. To solve this problem, the Elbrus have a special unit, but it worked terribly at the beginning. Later, the developers made corrections in the compiler and added Linux (the kernel, not the OS!). Which solved most of the problems but did not allow to reach the performance of Intel and AMD. In addition, with multi-core and using the usual software, this will be insignificant, and there are a lot of open programs on Linux, and it’s not a problem for the state to sign an agreement and order the assembly on its compiler.

      When "take imported", you are again unhappy.

      What is your task?

    Fighting laptops ... Here it became really scary. I remembered the scout's shooting knife. Will the barrel and grenade launcher be built into the laptop?

    Logic there also means Intel's, which raises questions, especially in view of the recent exposure of, let's say, excessive functionality. About the fact that this is military equipment and dependence on the supply of the main enemy is unacceptable. Well, and I think for this dream the NSA will also pay our military apparently at least a million apiece.

          Comments are superfluous.

          Not take off. You never know what some company presented there.
          And it won’t take off because “Elbrus” is it:

          An INEUM employee Maxim Gorshenin presented from the Neva exhibition held in St. Petersburg a photograph of the Aquamarine protected laptop on the Elbrus-1C + microprocessor.

          They did not enter free sale.
          Similar MiniPC C7 in civilian performance within 3tr. I will clarify: in Manchuria.
          At the enterprises that received Elbrus-2, they are satisfied with both their working capacity and cost.

    “The latest generation laptop weighs only about 4 kg and boasts a Core i7 processor,

    uh on i7 with FullHD I took my daughter 4,5 years ago ....
    .....
    it's certainly all right ...
    but where is Elbrus?

    Sharky,

    Simply, performance directly depends on the clock frequency.

    Someone makes one multiplication for 174 measures, and someone for 4 measures.
    And Intel also moves on to the next team in 3 bars.
    So for the clock frequency, what do you still want to talk about?
    Quote: ProkletyiPirat
    processors from intel and amd go on a truncated command platform

    Truncated from what? From the AMD command system? Intel? MK63? MK64? MK68? Spectrum? Or even from the M-20?
    Does it mean that the penultimate one is an emulation of a two-address system, and the last one is a three-address system?
    RISK processors emulate a command system at the micro-command level. Accordingly, they require significantly longer time, more clock cycles for execution, since the execution of each command is the execution of a subprogram.
    But they are programmed and work in the command system of the "full" processor of the corresponding manufacturer.

    Gentlemen, everything is clear! It was the Chinese who decided to sell their junk for budget money, because due to the impoverishment of Russian citizens, computer sales were greatly reduced. This is to say that I somehow went into the DNS and asked about why they had become so empty. “And nobody buys?” Was the answer. “Only mice, but flash drives are taken.” Anyway, it’s ridiculous to read such articles when the FSB forbids us to buy computers for our money in our part, but they don’t have them checked at the warehouse. And then the Moscow commissions come and gasp: "Why do not you demand?" And we reply that the word "demand" is left only in the Arbat district, and we have to beg.

    "Earlier models had a full sledgehammer in the kit, so that if there was a threat of capture by the enemy, they could be broken in the right place ..."
    And at the same time for melee smile And how now, without a sledgehammer, an irreplaceable thing in the army?
