welcome back here with r.t. here is a look at the top stories slavey is revels in nato are closing in on pearl cut off his hometown words believe he might be hiding it while western countries waste no time in securing big business in a war torn country. russia puts forward a u.n. resolution calling for dialogue to broker peace in syria the document is to counter what is proposed by the u.s. and european states which moscow says is siding with anti-government protesters. a british court is accused of time trying to gather world war two veteran eighty five year old has been jailed for without warning or hearing but activists claim the
1:31 am
real reason was he's speaking out against corruption and the judiciary. and now we explore the latest and the appliance of science in russia and around the world technology update is next. welcome to technology update and welcome to mocks the world famous moscow air show where the planets premiere aerospace pioneers have come to show off their latest high flying hard supplies for today for them this to divest to soar above the rest of the legendary to coast the airfield in suburban moscow reach the very place named after an early russian aerodynamics genius this year was a tense time around for this festival flight since it started in one thousand nine
1:32 am
hundred three with over eight hundred companies representing thirty countries to be strong for the year shows more than half a million guests was surely the in-flight action business was also on the bill racking up some ten billion dollars in deals even with all the international big shots bringing their wares russia's open secret made the biggest goods to sue who had caught fire chief fifty finally broke out from behind the closed doors covering its development flight for crowds in cameras for the first time it's a fifth generation stealth fighter turbo russia's air force deep into the twenty first century each maxie's new headlines and highlights like this to hoist superjet in two thousand and nine or two thousand and eleven is already a new decade with new projects like a whole batch of edition cargo and passenger jets in russia's civil aviation pipeline. undoubtedly the most notable newcomer is here could see m c twenty one with a full scale cabin model on display for the very first time its final boarding call
1:33 am
for a glimpse to the future of this short and mid-range commercial one. this single while narrow bodied in c twenty one is actually an emerging family two hundred three hundred and four hundred modifications forthcoming to be capable of transporting anywhere from one fifty to over two hundred passengers per flight at a range starting at thirty five hundred to five thousand kilometers potentially up to seven thousand in the future cabin designs are easily transformable to increase comfort work a passage to total order to make these planes into internationally competitive aircraft rests on the shoulders of the. corporation on the strength of over seventy five years at its factory in the siberian city of could the company hopes not only to bring in reinforcements for the aging to mystic to the left one fight for fleets but also challenge the dominance of giants boeing and airbus in this market segment thankfully they're not starting from square one with a steady flow of skilled scientists and engineers from russian aerospace schools making the project all the more promising. we're designing this plane with
1:34 am
a wide range of international partners inside russia this means working with research institutes for aero hundred dynamics education materials and aviation technologies the stage is a cheat of aviation systems is helping design the airplanes digital components for a lot of the n.c. twenty one will be offered with engine options either present with these people view fourteen hundred g. or the specially designed new p.t. for t.v. a project of russia's economy should be good to. tusk is to provide the advantage of cheap engines without compromising performance parameters and available resources most importantly in terms of the lifecycle cost as compared to our competitors abroad it's important to point out that we're regarding this engine as the platform on the basis of which engines will be designed for the whole line of a set plan the p.t. fourteen is projected to meet and exceed international standards on fuel consumption emissions and noise pollution new engines are stored but they aren't
1:35 am
the only innovative briefing for the future could jet. are leading aerodynamics is it your psyche made a crucial contribution to this project they're experts produced a new concept for wing design it has little to give a new profile for supercritical airfoils all of their work helps greatly improve the plane's aerodynamics in addition to this super critical design high wing aspect ratio on a wide reaching airplane is a further aerodynamic advantage but it's largely what the winds are made. they camps. visit if it's here you can see a compass and wing books for the m. c. twenty one airliner it uses unique and advanced technology what's called vacuum and fusion in a joint project between the main design error come visit and the sukhoi company's design bureau on the russian side as well as austria's facia and the material supply side take from the us these materials and technologies have made it possible to improve the aerodynamic characteristics of the wing reduce its weight and as
1:36 am
a result increase the airplane's fuel efficiency by up to twelve percent enough of an. awful lot of parts to fall into place for a passenger plane to break into the cutthroat commercial market but the mc twenty one is already taking its first strides into a sunny future. board the prototype cabinet to moscow here show i could already get a feel for how a flight on that you could airliner might one day be automated latches open oversize luggage bins spacious seats in both business and economy and of course a screen at every seat. as passengers were most concerned with smooth sailing tourist destination enhanced by every available many of the carriers are all about the bottom line all three m. c. twenty one models allow for everything from spacious mixed class layouts to the tighter tour operator scheme and makes the most out of every last row in any combination airplanes will remain wider than traditional single aisle jets just
1:37 am
enough extra aisle space to eliminate the annoying service cards squeezed by a train scenarios time. from the flight deck pilots also enjoy every perk of twenty first century aviation with multi-functional l.c.d. output panels to integrate delayed a sim digitize flight controls. those pilot wings the thing runway obviously this model is not exactly clear could explaining for twenty one by twenty fourteen so there should be more progress through. ported the next three blocks this year's most triumphal entry went to the brand new long awaited seventy seven dreamliner from boeing we should just wrapped up test flights for u.s. federal aviation administration certification it is home base outside seattle washington with one of the nine trial seventy seven straight up for a short getaway mox visitors got a glimpse at the latest widebody boeing billed as the company's most advanced most fuel efficient airplane ever and with russian flights had barely flowed said to
1:38 am
take twenty two of the new dreamliner. crews from faraway seattle gave future customers a good preview of what the modern machine is capable of. it was a very enjoyable easy flight we used a lot of the automation on the airplane to make the pilot work load our eyes don't wriggle as possible so the autopilot course was used all throughout those rooms this monitor those systems the airplane is equipped with some can be all see an automatic promotion reporting and so forth so we took advantage of all those things we didn't have to make the standard position reports on the h.f. radio airplanes system did those reports for us so very very enjoyable plus russia was hardly a brand of choice for the dreamliner visit as moscow is home to boeing's biggest
1:39 am
engineering office outside the u.s. the eleven hour time difference from the west coast headquarters to russia's capital means the company has around the clock engineering operations within aerospace tradition they grew up alongside and even in times ahead of the american and european schools russia provides a rich pool of specialists that was a big deal in developing the dreamliner the think about the russian called for the this airplane i think that i would say that mecurio was. in a mix two main areas. where the partnership in russia made it possible for me probably to say that this airplane would not happen without our russian partners in terms of design russian engineers complete claim to the nose cone structure that leads to seventy seven skyward they pitched in on electrical systems or conditioning they designed a crucial video of the wing that provides lift the pylon for mounting the engines and even added some flair to the passenger friendly interior. when it comes to
1:40 am
simply airplanes there are parts and then there are parts and it's largely thanks to unique new components that boeing is promising a twenty percent bump in efficiency could help the dreamliner as operators type two point four million dollars per plane per year this efficiency would be impossible without key parts like this body cord connecting the we need to fuselage made entirely of russian composite materials this source of these all important materials this would all boeing a joint venture between the aircraft company and via sim p.o.v. small producer of fully a quarter of the world's titanium it said blowing in russia stood last region that unique h.t.m.l. ois are turned into the backbone of the seventy seven breakthroughs in material science achieved here are a major reason the world can expect lighter stronger more eco friendly airplanes in the coming years. we are no design in seven eight nine that's and that's mitigation of this airplane which will be the leader will carry more passengers up to eight
1:41 am
hundred eighty thousand exists the longer distance that airplane. and train service in two years and where there would be a design in this airplane would also paid a lot of attention to the other there were interesting in moscow cold seven eight that brought it goes all in parallel with so an eight seven in such the case one flight tests and will continue to work on the improvements of this airplanes and i am sure that there will be. it's including the small airplanes that the russian he is welcome to the cowboy. for now all eyes are on the upcoming commercial rollout of the first dreamliner due within the next month for delivery to japanese carrier a.n.e. and that's just the beginning boeing racked up over eight hundred sales for their new standard very jet before it even made its first test flight so expect them soon in the airport here you not all the newbies to box or commercial jetliners come
1:42 am
from any of the far flung sparsely populated russian regions bigger isn't necessarily better it's with an eye on regional small crappy asian it has been developed and it's already one attention it mocks for greater than its size the assembly lines that some are as sask a bit of progress helped put the first soviet cars knots in orbit and propelled generations of the air in space craft skyward for more than a half century of its history so it's an auspicious starting place for what will be the first post soviet small aircraft first serial production designed by engineers at moscow based technology it's intended to combine modern performance and avionics with the rugged all condition reliability needed to serve russia's regions. to the no hell the design this can be seen in several solutions employed on this airplane is excellent i ever done any properties including the a full ensuring great performance even at low velocity its landing gear is very good and allows you to land the aircraft on sub standard their fields craft
1:43 am
withstand strong winds very we'll with the isometric engines also very good performance which is particularly important for multi engine aircraft and also is a significant advantage in training aircraft. before research flew in to take its place of the air show in moscow we had a chance to climb aboard for one of its certification testing flights in the western russian city of smullyan. conditions of the former military airport are luxury as compared to the remote airstrips the research is built to access but it's a good base for monitoring and servicing the newborn aircraft while it gets its wings in the field it can take off and land from dirt lift off with one of its two engines disabled and provide crew and passengers with emergency oxygen if flight conditions demand a climb above thirty six hundred meters experience test pilot going off whips the
1:44 am
light airplane around curves with performance parameters to establish these trial flights are no relaxing total jump but once it makes muster with russian aviation regulators the first batch are due for delivery to a flight school in lenin's hometown and will be honest. it really stands out for its modern flight control equipment which in practice and i was eric out of the students who have mastered this machine to transition easily to modern passenger jetliner this. year when recent choke hits the market it won't just be raising a new generation of skilled pilots it will also help revive an important aviation sector that suffered from post so be economic belt tightening and an aging fleet of light aircraft would reduce a choke and recent changes to airspace regulations the range and flexibility of multi-purpose general aviation should be back on russia's enormous map. this excessiveness a choke and a potential for expansion in russia's small aircraft sector has drawn interest in
1:45 am
the involvement of some of the country's biggest producers that includes the new makers of many a media engine now work on a domestic we built tension. both at their moscow airshow display and on their assembly lines salute is most distinguished for powering the skies a bigger piece in the soviet era there are fifteen three hundred push the record breaking maybe twenty five interceptor unprecedented speeds in altitude today they're updating and repair. bring engines from the thirty one f. family the boosters behind a big chunk of the russian air forces fight or flee. from sioux hoist to twenty seven to its descent in suit dirty suit thirty three and suit thirty four salute also collaborates with ukrainian partners to power several large anton of passenger and cargo planes as well as the firefighting amphibian video from the two hundred with all that under their belt the company agreed to an order for what would become
1:46 am
its first white airplane engine. how did salute come to the decision to expand from the production of engines for fighter jets into the arena of small aircraft if the decision was made to to the existing need for a new engine in this class of their croft since the engines currently in use were designed back in one nine hundred seventy s. and accordingly it was quite obvious that the demand for a new engine would be high due to improve technical an operational performance as well as economic advantages resulting from the improved fuel consumption rates and hans engine power performance but if these determined proxy five hundred s. is just a production gear attached to the propeller the combustor the compressor and if the rear the excess read your box what's called the gas generator comprises both combustion compressor essentially part of the engine. the gas generator is the biggest piece yet produced in seleucid project for that is the choke turbo prop
1:47 am
engine along with it may develop a custom made experimental stand to confirm their balance for the appointed performance figures. since it is a choke is already flying on the check me walter m. six zero one f. and might see a replacement from general electric said utes t.v. five hundred s. need specs to set it apart. here we joined said you would see engineers to fire up the gas generator for another round of tests draw power is important but not the only objective given recent shocks to me. stature a lighter less powerful engine it still has that thrust to provide a desired cruising speed in takeoff distance while guzzling less gas is a more profitable for you. sue for seventeen seems to be the engines lucky number projected to be seventeen kilograms lighter than the water model and you seventeen percent less fuel so it's still just figures the t.v. five hundred s. is shaping up to be a highly competitive engine for small turbo prop planes so few technical solutions
1:48 am
have laid a good foundation for the development of a future engine right now we are talking about the gas generator so hopeful to complete development of a new engine by twenty twelve from the outset we've been developing our engines completely old from techno obviously there is such a craft project it could be used in patrol flights for example aerial monitoring of border areas for the emergencies ministry's risky fleet full medical aid operations and we expected to be in good demands full light transport aviation. side from frustrating journalists trying to make sense out of trials of faith when there's an ever present variable he ation for aircraft of all sizes for generations me kind has been playing and occasionally catastrophic we losing a dangerous game with when shifting weather systems every time we take the skies
1:49 am
fortunately now we're increasingly prepared with advanced equipment to keep us from getting away. when she or where wind changes in direction or speed over a short distance can quickly turn a smooth flight into again tourist one given enough elevation pilots can easily recover but options are much more limited around takeoff and landing that's why russian scientists me how can you steve has developed technology to provide pilots and air traffic controllers with improved wind shear warning must you have a year ago when the atmosphere around there. his own stable in some cases and airports have been built in places with complicated landscapes take for example hong kong where roughly one in every two hundred fifty landings and takeoffs is performed under house of this wind shear conditions imports of diffuser will be fully covered with advanced sensor equipment to map out when other hazards information that will help relieve congestion increase throughput a goldmine for the aviation industry old school when sure detection systems rely on
1:50 am
an anemometer source simple wind gauges a lighter wind profiler three hundred developed by russian firms laser systems and aircraft engineering concern is ground based shooting laser beams skyward and then determining wind direction and speed by detecting the frequency of the backscatter light at least in principle one liner when profiler should give more detailed information over shorter distances crucial around airports and low flying aircraft in several anemometer spaced out around the same territory. the task is actually quite simple our device here will now measure the wind profile at an altitude of three hundred meters in the vicinity you can see a tower with special platforms where wind gauges like the one i'm holding are installed. in the us of course our goal is to prove that the measurements of our lives are wind profile or correspond to the measurements obtained through the sensors installed on this high meteorological tower was posing with them i stood.
1:51 am
up against a whole host of spinning anemometers just one scanning module on the l.w.p. three hundred is left of pain an equally accurate picture of the window over this kaluga region test site mistakes are high since the losing system may soon be consigned to the dustbin of aviation history the physical benefits of replacing the towers in the already cluttered space around modern airports is obvious. missing the ground a slider systems would also be less of a challenge but if the numbers don't back up the win profiling benefits then the towers are better left in place fortunately the new technology for ford perfectly and may soon be ready for full time action. conditions put on a course in the test of being completed successfully and most importantly in the near future we hope to get certified by the interstate aviation committee the organization that deals with equipment certification once we've got that our task
1:52 am
is to provide this equipment for russia's first wind sheer detection system and installing logical stalk which will be hosting next year's major international summit was an obvious be should be that we should ensure maximum flight safety for the high ranking guests and naturally only commercial passengers flying to and from bloody vostok every day are not finishing two thousand and eleven features more than ten american military aircraft something unthinkable in moscow when this airshow first opened nearly two decades ago improve relations i thank you at least in part to a multinational treaty and high flying surveillance technology this story starts in the darkest days of the cold war when an arms race and mutual suspicion held the world both east and west in a state of great tension by the constant threat of all out war in nuclear destruction and we're trying to do then you believe this great fear of surprise attack so now on our allies in ourselves proposing the inspection of all not the
1:53 am
america not of the me brand. and all of europe. anything for a. russia and. japanese eisenhower's main message at the geneva summit of nine hundred fifty five but soviet and western leaders failed to agree on a mutual inspection regime and the idea was put on ice for a generation it was reborn in one thousand nine hundred two however as the treaty on the open skies the united states and russia were eventually joined by thirty two other. signatories to complete more than eight hundred fly overs and generated both valuable data in up prices boost in mutual relations bent on thirty in the triple f one five four have carried out most of russia's flights to date but like their counterparts in other countries the plane thirty g. can't have. the aeronautical and electronics equipment company vega is responsible for bringing russia's open skies surveillance capacity into the twenty first century camera in sensor equipment allowed with industry has to be fine tuned like

bulk of information one fixed photo camera shoots directly below the a craft that one another one takes panorama peaches plus two side view cameras and three video cameras all this photo and video surveillance equipment and eyeballs us to cover a very large stretch of land and gives us a detailed picture of the landscape the aircraft passes of a. camera has a separate all tickle port protected by sliding doors that are designed to prevent the from sticking to the lenses during takeoff and landing generally speaking they could. it is very reliable and fully automated. with the cameras and sensors installed in the plane's underbelly crewmen and women on the planes operated them right from the tiny camera but the travel of two fourteen zero s is moved to remote control and automation lets the mission commander the individual camera operators and host country observers all sit comfortably in the passenger cabin listening to food we're entering the compartment where the equipment operators six. of us will
1:56 am
this is the key part of the plane because this is where we receive the desired information. you'll notice that there are two additional seats located behind each operator who is he is there for the representatives of the country the plane is flying a. this is a necessary provision i am to exercise in constant control over the treaty flights in focus and here is the equipment that operates the infrared camera and the radar should also mention that this is the first time in the history of the treaty on open skies that surveillance radar has been installed on board an aircraft much of the truth live to fourteen zero zero zero s. is already flight worthy and ready to fill all its treaty obligations a second plane is on assembly lines set to join in the formal flights as soon as next year international observers came to moscow agreed the plane is a big step to making sure the sky stayed open and a future it's the end of an airshow here in moscow and the end of an era for technology of today i'm off to get one of these jets back to the states but the
