The military are involved in a fantastic arms race

The military are involved in a fantastic arms raceA consilium of scientists belonging to the Public Council under the military-industrial complex, headed by Rogozin, and the Foundation for Advanced Studies in the system of defense innovations (similar to the American DARPA, specializing in the development weapons of the future) came to the conclusion that it will not be possible to avoid participation in the military technology race that has already begun, otherwise Russia may simply disappear from the political map of the world. “We should not repeat the mistakes of the notorious arms race during the cold war, but we must eliminate the likelihood of a sharp and unfavorable for Russia military-strategic balance due to a new generation of technologies coming to the fore,” the report prepared for the meeting says ( daily). At the same time, scientists suggest concentrating efforts on advanced, high-risk research.


Among the proposed ideas is the creation of advanced biomedical technologies that can prevent a person from dying as a result of injuries. At the expense of human stem cells, it is proposed to create technologies for the industrial production of artificial blood identical to donor blood. Special attention is paid to military robotics. It is proposed to construct deep-sea reconnaissance robots and for servicing cables on the ocean floor, a high-altitude unmanned reconnaissance and target designation system with a super-long barrage period, a ground patrol robot on an automobile chassis and an exoskeleton that enhances human muscle strength.

It is also proposed to think about the creation of a hypersonic vacuum train, an electromagnetic catapult, a spaceplane and, finally, to build a space elevator - a cable transportation system based on centrifugal force.

“It all looks beautiful on paper, but more like a script for a fantastic film about the cities of the future than a real program to improve the country's defense capability,” evaluates the document by the chief specialist and inventor of the military-industrial complex Igor Krotov, who worked in the USSR and Russia in the field of onboard control systems military equipment and microelectronics. “I don’t have any idea whatsoever in the next ten years, even in the US Army, what can we say about us.” According to the expert, the main problem is that the pleiad of Soviet-era hardened military scientists was dispersed, and no one came to take their place.

“I studied the names of the authors of this report - there are very young guys, a little more than 30 for them, one and all with a law degree,” he argues. - In our years, it was impossible to imagine that at that age scientists would write some works that would be offered to high-ranking officials. It seems to me that this is another fact testifying to the frivolity of this work. ”

Although there are, according to the former inventor, in the program and rational things. “They mainly deal with threats and promising strategic developments. Here, for example, the call to strengthen the Far East militarily, where our positions are particularly weak, ”Mr. Krotov noted.

By coincidence, it was on Tuesday that Deputy Defense Minister Yury Borisov announced the start of work at the Moscow Institute of Thermal Engineering (the developer of the famous Bulava rocket. - RBC daily) on the development of combat railway missile systems (BZhRK), which terrified the USSR’s neighbors during the Cold War .

According to military expert Igor Korotchenko, the main advantage of “nuclear trains” is their invulnerability. “It can move and go unnoticed, since the train with rocket launchers for enemy technical intelligence means is no different from a regular freight train,” he explained.

Source RBC daily in the Ministry of Defense said that BZHRK will protect including the country's Far Eastern borders.

It was not possible to get a comment from Deputy Prime Minister Rogozin on promising defense developments. A source in his entourage agreed that some plans in the program sound unrealistic. “But the foundation is called“ promising ideas ”, and not“ urgently realizable. ” On the whole, the program is well thought out, weighed and, in the future, we hope, feasible, ”he noted.

“We have already developed some of the promising developments of scientists,” a source told RBC Daily at the Ministry of Defense. “For example, this year we ordered the development of an active ultrasound cuff to stop the bleeding“ Bee, ”which itself must find the place of damage on the body of the fighter and stop the blood, including from large vessels. We also paid for an order to develop a human bioengineering liver. ”

Colonel Anatoly Dergilev, who had previously served in the central apparatus of the Russian Ministry of Defense, found the program interesting, but implemented in a very distant future. However, while the fund of money is not so much to take up the development of weapons and uniforms of the future. The budget of the fund is determined at the level of 150 million rubles. Vice Prime Minister Rogozin said earlier that to start effective work, he should be at least 3 billion rubles.

    Rogozin will present personnel for the Advanced Research Foundation.
    Posted on 21.01.2013/XNUMX/XNUMX by ic_author

    Vice Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin will hold the first meeting of the Board of Trustees of the Advanced Research Foundation in the evening.

    “Personnel issues will be considered at the meeting,” he informed Twitter in his microblog.

    For the first time, Rogozin announced the intention of the authorities to establish a foundation for advanced research on January 19, 2012.

    “We are talking about creating a“ predator ”of research that will identify breakthrough research in the field of defense industry,” Rogozin said at a meeting with university rectors who are training personnel for the defense industry. Note that, according to the designers, this structure should become an analogue of the American DARPA (Agency for Advanced Defense Research and Development of the United States).

    It is also known that the Russian fund will not be like the Skolkovo project. No more than 300 people will work there, they will conduct research exclusively in the field of military technology.


    In turn, in April 2012, Vladimir Putin signed an expert opinion on the establishment of the Advanced Research Foundation. Later, in May, he announced that until 2018, the Russian Foundation for Basic Research would be allocated up to 25 billion rubles, primarily to increase grants.

    In October 2012, a federal law was signed on the establishment of a prospective research fund in Russia.

    A law has been signed on the Advanced Research Foundation.
    http://президент.рф/acts/16670


    Russian President Vladimir Putin has appointed a member of the Military-Industrial Commission Andrei Grigoriev to the post of Director General of the Advanced Research Foundation, the Kremlin’s press service said in a statement. Earlier, Grigoryev’s candidacy was proposed by the Board of Trustees of the FPI, chaired by Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin. Earlier, the Russian president appointed members of the board of trustees of the fund, which included 14 people.

      A law has been signed on the Advanced Research Foundation.
      "We are talking about the most unusual weapon, which borders on the fantastic. It is called a weapon based on new physical principles (NFP). 1. Killer sound
      The principle of operation of this weapon is based on the damaging effect on the human body of elastic waves of low frequency - less than 16 Hz. The sound generator is a combat sound cannon. It is installed on heavy armored vehicles (such as the tracked BTRS, the most powerful infrasound is able to stop the heart. With a certain setting, the battle sound gun breaks the internal organs of a person. 2. Water bomb. Like many foreign, Russian scientists are studying the capabilities of the so-called climate (or meteorological) weapons. The purpose of the use of these weapons may be to reduce the efficiency of agricultural production of a potential enemy, and to deteriorate the food supply to the population of this region. 3. seismological provocationAnother type of unconventional weapon is seismic. Legends are already spreading about him. In the USSR, and then in Russia, the development of such a device was and is being "parallel" to the American. 4. Psychotropic scamIn Russia, a special program has been developed that provides for the creation of special devices that allow influencing a person’s “subcortex”, forcing him to confuse reality with illusions, obeying codes that are entered into the brain using a special technique. 5. Asteroid charge The principle of using an asteroid weapon to bombard a given region on the Earth’s surface is as follows: by direct detonation of a nuclear device on the path of the asteroid’s movement, it is transferred to the orbit of the meeting with the Earth and giant blocks of space fall on the calculated area of ​​the enemy’s territory. 6. Gourmet Genetic WormTalk about the development of genetic weapons in Russia has been going on for a long time
      Such a weapon, if it is created, will be able to kill, for example, only white people with a certain color of hair and eyes, or black with curly hair, or people of small stature with a certain section of the eyes. 7. Magnetron - HypnotistThe action of radio-frequency weapons is based on "processing a person with electromagnetic radiation .. With a certain setting of microwave weapons, a person begins to hear the" inner voice "and obey it. A pilot can land a car at a foreign airfield, the radio operator in plain text call the secret code, etc. Having hacked some powerful magnetron, the operator, even at a distance of 150 km, can easily disrupt the operation of any electronic systems. This will allow to paralyze airfields, missile launching sites, centers and command posts, navigation systems, disable the command and control systems of troops and weapons, as well as control units mounted on guided weapons. 8. Laser gunAt the end of the last century, Russian designers managed to burn a thick (about 8 cm) layer of armor with a high-energy “gun”, first in a static position and then in flight. After that, the BLP began to be tested for the ability to hit fast-flying targets. After a while, she managed to detonate flying rockets. And today they are already a simple target for BLP. http://www.rususa.com/news/news.asp-nid-11460

    In my opinion, the Americans want to repeat the scenario with the USSR, and economically exhaust Russia. Then there was the moon, shuttle, etc. The top leadership sees the Americans have it, which means we need the same, but for which it is not clear. Now with a fighter of the 5th generation, and soon with the 6th fuss will begin. I’m generally silent about aircraft carriers. I think it’s not worth repeating and copying what the Americans are doing.

        It's not so simple !!! we must try to be on the cutting edge or in advanced countries that have technologies that provide it with superiority over all others, only then we can avoid aggression. Now there’s no such thing since 20 years after the Union burned everything !!! It does not have all the potential .... America, too, is in debt to it is not so easy as it was in the past .... We need patience and work, and we will see that their economy is also not lasting, that's for sure !!! they are !!! Now closer to the collapse than we are !!!

      So in the text, it seems like the technologies are seen in isolation from the amerovsky ones, like, according to Rogozinovsky, "We looked beyond the horizon of events wassat In general, in order to break away, we need to invent a hyper-engine, or a "time machine" as a last resort. lol

    To block the drain of money from Russia - we will not know where to put the money, no arms race will be scary. And our designers will have a good workout, imagine how many jobs!

    Money in the military-industrial complex is an impulse for the work of the brain, while there are no Samsung, Sony and other high-tech products in electronics and other areas - to make the military-industrial complex "move" is a godly deed !!! good

    Judging by the latest wars and the way they are described, the main thing is command and control of troops, to know all the ins and outs about the enemy, and all this is based on space. If someone is the first to figure out how to destroy the electronics of enemy satellites, moreover, preferably secretly, then all the "5th generation aircraft" are just toys, but if done at once, then it is possible not secretly. Own satellite, as far as I understand, should be able to change the speed and direction of flight, and, as far as I believe, there is already an engine. Recently I read in the arguments - "10 days before Mars" - to strain yourself, it is quite possible. The blind enemy is already half the enemy, and the road to space is, in principle, closed. Go for it.

    Yes, we are more exhausted by the summit, the Olympics and the World Cup in football. That's for sure bespontovoe crap ... In general, right. It is necessary for scientists to work on order, and not to engage in crap themselves.

    I also consider it unlikely that any new types of nanoweapons other than a laser will appear in the near future, but to say that young people can’t do anything is dementia.
    In WWII, many fighters were from 18 to 22 years old. not to mention 30. And the non-firing and veteranism does not depend on age, and because as far as the fighter often took part in hostilities, you can be a 25 veteran, or you can live a peaceful life for 50 years.
    Napoleon’s generals, or rather, the marshals were up to 30, as he himself when he conquered a lot.
    Macedonian at 25, defeated the Persian army led by Darius. So if the old horse does not spoil the furrow, then the young one certainly will not break the saddle. Kazakhs have a proverb which in translation means:
    If at the age of 20 you didn’t go to the enemy, then when you are 40 no one will believe that you have broken into the fortress.

    The title of the article is provocative, as the state (and not the military in its own understanding) is included in the arms race in accordance with the decision of the Supreme military-political-economic leadership of the country.
    “We should not repeat the mistakes of the notorious arms race of the Cold War period, but we must exclude the possibility of a sharp, unfavorable shift in the military-strategic balance for Russia due to the emergence of new generation technologies on the forefront,” And what are these threats was very convincingly shown by my "namesake" (these are your words, Marshal) Kaa with a link to http://www.rususa.com/news/news.asp-nid-11460. Personally, in this exotic (I'm talking about the article), I was most pleased with the message about an electromagnetic catapult. There will be a catapult, there will be normal AVUs, not for the seizure of foreign territories, but for the air cover of the naval forces at sea. Everything that is done for the good of my country, to strengthen its power (military, economic, spiritual, etc.) must be supported by any sane person, unless of course he is an enemy. And how much and where to spend money is decided by the leadership of the Russian Federation, based on economic, technological, resource and other components, as well as the forecast of threats (internal and external). Of course, I could be wrong, but judging by the position of the majority of members of the forum, this statement is not far from the truth. IMHO.

    Of course, it is worth respecting the opinion of such a distinguished person as Igor Krotov, but his phrase:
    I don’t imagine anything proposed in reality in the next ten years, even in the US Army

    Even in the US Army! Oh yeah! Measure and standard. Does the US Army have something similar to the S-300, S-400, Iskander?
    The list goes on. The very idea that if something is not in the USA, then even more so we will not have it is an element of that same vile zombie that we have been treated for a long time.
    But in fact, the United States is a "culture" of thieves and crooks who constantly misappropriate someone else's, their method is STEAL, AND BE Proud of HIM.
    The USA is a cuckoo's chick in the nest of terrestrial civilization; it is something foreign, trying to push all the real chicks out of the nest with its thick ass.
    Why do you need to constantly look into their mouths, "and what will the most authoritative Americans say !?"
    And what is so special they can say?
