RUDN scientists have developed a new method for determining the orientation of objects in the antenna complex based on measurements of a strapdown inertial system
Employees of the laboratory of physical processes and technologies for manufacturing wave solid-state gyroscopes (WSG) have found a General solution to the problem of nonlinear filtering of orientation parameters based on inertial measurements of objects located on a base subject to highly dynamic disturbances.

It is established that modern methods for determining orientation using measurements of satellite navigation systems or inertial orientation systems do not provide the required accuracy for solving the problem of orientation of large or medium-sized objects. In this regard, a new dynamic algorithm for estimating stochastic orientation parameters has been developed that is invariant to the nature of the base movement and provides stability and the required accuracy of estimation under the most General assumptions about the nature of interference of sensitive elements of a strapdown inertial orientation system built on the basis of WSG. The Rodriguez-Hamilton parameter vector is used as the observed vector of orientation parameters, and the accelerometer output signal is proposed to be used as its observer. Based on the stochastic nonlinear equations of the vector of parameters of the current orientation and the equations of stochastic models of accelerometer output signals constructed for the most General case of object motion, a generalized Kalman filter was formed that provides a General solution to the problem of estimating the orientation parameters of an arbitrary structure on a movable base. The results of numerical simulation confirmed the possibility of using the developed method for solving the problem of high-precision orientation determination without correction from global satellite navigation systems over a long time interval.

RUDN soil scientists developed a new method for assessing soil fertility

RUDN soil scientists have revealed a direct correlation between the rate of soil formation of carbon dioxide, called CO2 emissions, and the content of microbial biomass in it. It is known that CO2 emission from soil is mainly conditioned by respiration of soil microorganisms and plant roots. The more CO2 soil emits, the more microbial biomass it usually contains. It was shown that CO2 emission by chernozem of different ecosystems (or different types of land use) correlates with the content of microbial biomass, and most closely with the rate of its microbial respiration. And the soil with good microbial properties has the “best quality”, is more fertile, provides the highest yield of crops and other plant biomass.

RUDN University chemists proposed a way to reduce three times the temperature for the oxidation of alkanes

RUDN University chemists and their colleagues from the Russian Academy of Sciences have proposed new catalysts that allow to reduce the temperature of the oxidation reaction of alkanes three times — from 150 to 50 degrees. This significantly reduces the cost of synthesizing alcohols, aldehydes and other compounds needed, in particular, for the production of nylon and capron.
