For the first time Russia conducted a successful flight test of the aircraft engine, manufactured using 3D printing, its production is scheduled for 2021-2022 years, told RIA Novosti in the Fund of perspective researches (FPI).
Last December, the FPI reported on the successful bench testing of small gas turbine aircraft engines, manufactured using 3D printing.
Russia was the first in the world tested electric propulsion installation based on the technology of high-temperature superconductivity and is powered completely from the battery, told RIA Novosti the Foundation for advanced studies.
They explained that during the tests the power of the engine was provided only by specially designed batteries high power. Testing was conducted in a simulated take-off and landing charge and discharge the battery in flight and emergency modes.
Young Russian specialists when working on the apparatus "Vityaz-D", determined in may, the depth of the Mariana trench 10 028 meters, has made a technological breakthrough, creating completely new materials and devices, said in an interview with RIA Novosti Deputy head of physico-technical research of the advanced research Foundation (DRF), candidate of military Sciences Viktor Litvinenko.
He noted that the technology that was used in the creation of this unit, 100% Russian.
Testing deep-water apparatus "Vityaz", which established in may, the depth of the Mariana trench 10 028 meters, confirmed the ability of Russian technicians to work anywhere in the World's oceans, said in an interview with RIA Novosti Deputy head of the direction of the physico-technical research of the advanced research Foundation (DRF), candidate of military Sciences Viktor Litvinenko.
In his words, "American and Chinese manned submersibles descend as the Elevator up and down".
American oceanographer, Institute of Oceanography named SCRIPPS (San Diego, CA) David Sandwell told RIA Novosti about the features explore the depths, he considers it useful to bring together the data obtained by measurements of the depths of the Mariana trench.
Mariana trench (Marianas trench) – a narrow depression (trough) on the bottom of the Pacific ocean (in its Western part), the deepest in the world, stretches along the Mariana Islands in 1340 kilometers, has a V-shaped profile and steep asymmetric slopes. It was discovered in 1875 by a British expedition, conducted the first systematic measurements of the depths of the Pacific ocean on the Oceanographic ship "Challenger". The deepest point in the Mariana trench is located in the West Pacific basin, it is 1.8 thousand kilometers from the Philippines in the South-Western side of the basin. This place is called the Deep Challenger (Challenger Deep).
