Russian Central Aerohydrodynamic Institute (TsAGI) is studying flying conditions in Arctic to develop a single-rotor perspective high-speed helicopter with jet system for transport.
TsAGI has developed a number of conceptual projects for a high-speed single-rotor helicopter for use in medical, rescue operations and maintenance of oil-producing platforms remote from the coastline or ships passing along the Northern Sea Route, the company said in a statement Monday.
In order to reasonably formulate requirements for speed, range and payload of an aircraft and finally determine its appearance, TsAGI specialists today are studying a set of conditions. This includes the specifics of the use of air ambulance in our country and abroad, the natural and infrastructural specifics of the regions of the Far North, as well as regulatory documents and standards related to the provision of emergency medical care.
“The provision of emergency medical care should be carried out in accordance with the standards, the implementation of which allows to guarantee a high probability of recovery of the patient. According to the standard for the arrival of ambulance is given 20 minutes. The time spent on delivery of the patient with the threat of his life in the hospital should not exceed two hours. If we are talking about the Arctic zone with a very low population density or areas of oil and gas extraction that are very remote from the coast, then we must take into account that the maximum range of a helicopter flight can be over 1000 km. All this testifies to the fact that it is impossible to do without high-speed rotary-wing aircraft in air ambulance,”said the deputy head of the department, head of the system research system in the field of air transport at the TsAGI, Andrey Smirnov.
The next stage of this work will be the creation of a software package for modelling rescue, medical aviation operations on land and sea to assess the effectiveness of technology development of high-speed rotary-wing aircraft.
The Russian armed forces have received over 200 inter-continental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) that include both land-based and submarine-launched since 2012, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoidu said. In the past sx years, the Armed Forces have received 109 Yars ICBMs and 108 submarine-launched ballistic missiles, Shoigu was quoted as saying by
The 40-ton class Advanced Lift Helicopter jointly developed by Russia and China is expected to be delivered by 2032, Wu Ximing, Chinese political advisor and chief designer of helicopters for the Aviation Industry Corporation of China said Thursday. "Russia is more experienced in the transmission system when it comes to 40-ton class helicopters, as Russia's Mi-26 is of the 56-ton class

Swedish Defense Research Agency, FOI in its recent report states that the range of the Russian S-400 Triumf air defence system and its capability to counter counter-measures is overrated. According to the report, “Bursting the Bubble? Russia´s A2AD-Capabilities in the Baltic Sea Region”, published on Monday, FOI states that the actual range of the Russian S-400 anti-aircraft system, which is promoted as having a range of 400 kilometres, is actually 150-200 kilometres, the
Russia is likely to launch its home-grown hypersonic rocket, Zircon, for the first time from a warship by the end of 2019. "At the end of this year, it is planned to begin testing the missile from the sea carrier, the lead frigate of project 22350, Admiral Gorshkov, which is part of the Northern Fleet,"
Russias robotic Derivatsiya-PVO anti-aircraft artillery (AAA) system will undergo state trials in November 2019, Defense Ministry announced Friday. “The state tests of the system are expected to be completed in November,”
