Russia incurs significant losses as a result of breaking fishing rules. Satellite-based control over domestic and foreign illegal fishers is most efficient. Watching the industrial fishing vessels by satellite is already practiced in Kamchatka.
Joint effort of the State Committee for Fisheries of the Russian Federation, Basin Administration for Fish Conservation of the Federal State Office "Sevvostryvod", and Kamchatka Centre of Communication and Monitoring (KCCM) has allowed for testing the information node designed by the Institute for Space Research of the Russian Academy of Sciences. This information node has been launched three years ago. It is designed for access to the satellite data base. Data from controlling devices attached to vessels are transferred by satellite to the KCCM, where they are deciphered and added to the general data base. Its synchronized copy that contains information on vessels location is transferred to the Sea Department of "Sevvostryvod", where it is analyzed by the monitoring group. This group has been formed with the support of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF).
That is a system of observing the routes and usage of fishing vessels. In case if illegal fishing is noticed, members of the monitoring group either apply measures or report to other competent organizations. The satellite-based control system makes it impossible for the fisher boats to conceal any information about fishing site and time as well as about the amount of catch re-loaded from one vessel to another. An important innovation is the data accessibility for inspectors from the sea patrol boats. In 10 minutes after inquiry, inspectors receive coordinates of fishing vessels within a particular area, which allows them to correct their routes.

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".
Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
